A unique ancient funerary boat has been unearthed near the Abusir pyramids, Egypt’s Antiquities Minister said in a statement. The vessel dates to about 2550 B.C. and was discovered by archaeologists excavating a large mastaba, or ancient tomb, in a cemetery of the Old Kingdom officials in Abusir, south of the Giza plateau.

These are amazing! #Bladerunner 
A massive gallery of behind-the-scenes Blade Runner slides has been uploaded to the internet, revealing a teeny, tiny world of space blimps and flying cars, all crafted with special care and beautiful attention to detail.

In its heyday Verulamium was the third largest city in Roman Britain. The city was founded on the ancient Celtic site of Verlamion (meaning ‘settlement above the marsh’), a late Iron Age settlement and major center of the Catuvellauni tribe. After the Roman invasion of 43 AD, the city was renamed Verulamium and became one of the largest and most prosperous towns in the province of Britannia. In around AD 50, Verulamium was granted the rank of municipium, meaning its citizens had “Latin Rights”.

Anyone with an interest in Roman Britain should have St Albans on top of their list of places to visit including the Verulamium Museum.

The Syracusia was an ancient sailing vessel designed by Archimedes in the 3rd century BCE. She was fabled as being one of the largest ships ever built in antiquity and as having a sumptuous decor of exotic woods and marble along with towers, statues, a gymnasium, a library, and even a temple.

In the seventh century CE, an #Arab army swept across North Africa with the goal of conquest, only to be defeated by a female warrior who led the resistance against their military advances. Commonly referred to as the “#Kahina,” meaning “seer” in Arabic, this brave and defiant woman belonged to a Judaized #Berber tribe in the Aurès Mountains of modern Algeria. Also known by the proper name of #Dihya, she led the Berber resistance against the advancing Arabs, pushing them eastward beyond the borders of modern #Libya. http://www.mizanproject.org/the-kahina-the-female-face-of-berber-history/
