The #Minoan civilization flourished on the Mediterranean island of #Crete during the height of the #BronzeAge (c. 2000-c. 1500 BCE). By virtue of their unique art and architecture, the ancient #Minoans made significant contributions to the subsequent development of Western civilization. Professor Louise Hitchcock, an archaeologist specializing in #Aegean #archaeology at Melbourne University, introduces us to the world of the ancient Minoans and the importance of Aegean archaeology in this exclusive interview with Ancient History Encyclopedia (AHE). http://etc.ancient.eu/2015/08/11/the-ancient-minoans-of-crete/

NASA's Curiosity rover has detected planetary conditions that suggest the presence of a transient "liquid brine" that appears on the surface at night.

Long before Europeans arrived to settle St. Louis, an impressive human construction stood on the eastern side of the Mississippi River. It was the Native American city of #Cahokia. At its height, tens of thousands lived in and around Cahokia, leaving behind great earthen mounds as testament. The largest still stands about a hundred feet tall today, minus what was likely a temple that once adorned its crest. http://buff.ly/1ceKQlc

Cahokia’s run just happens to line up with a hiatus for the area.

Standing isolated surrounded by the vast, golden north Saudi Arabian desert is a bizarre single rock castle, which has been lying undisturbed for centuries. Qasr al-Farid or 'The Lonely Castle' has a sad tale, standing incomplete and abandoned, looking out of place in the vast, barren landscape. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/travel/travel_news/article-3039503/The-Lonely-Castle-Incredible-abandoned-tomb-middle-Saudi-Arabian-desert-remained-incomplete-century-D.html

In the middle of the Saudi Arabian desert is a magnificent single-stone tomb, which has been standing strong since the first century AD. The Lonely Castle is one of 131 tombs in the region.
