I think I have posted previously about this type of mirror found in archaeological sites in Japan .
If you enjoy Japanese and Chinese history you should find this archaeological clue interesting. It connects the state of Wei (you may remember Wei from Sun Tzu’s book the Art Of War) and Japan’s third-century shaman queen Himiko.
A few days ago I posted an amazing Japanese snaphaunce pistol, from the 1650s. https://plus.google.com/u/0/114320497877326601798/posts/iWF9aTNf3M9
Today I am following up with an equally beautiful but less historically interesting matchlock from the mid 1800s. The workmanship on this pistol is quite exceptional.
The formation of a new land mass is always interesting. I have seen some video about the equipment uses to document this historic event. They have some unique camera drones that can get up close and personal, even with lava bombs (volcanic bomb) and cinder flying through the air.

The VW Type 128 and 166 Schwimmwagen (literally Floating/Swimming Car) were amphibious four-wheel drive off-roaders, used extensively by the German Wehrmacht and the Waffen-SS during the Second World War. The Type 166 is the most numerous mass-produced amphibious car in history.
The Volkswagen Type 166 is a buoyant SUV with all-wheel drive. It was developed on the basis of the KDF car and the Volkswagen Type 82 for Special Forces. Colloquially, the Type 166 is also referred to as VW swimmer or commonly known as swimming car
Are there other Tlingit people besides the North American tribes?
The Tlingit are an indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest Coast of North America.
It would also be helpful to know when the last of these coins was minted. I believe the Manchu Dynasty lasted about 300 years, from 1644 to 1912. I can see these coins being used as trade goods when this part of the world was colonized by Russia. The first permanent European settlement in Alaska was founded in 1784. In 1867 America purchased Alaska from Russia for $7.2 million.

Volkswagen Schwimmwagens used the engine and mechanicals of the VW Type 86 four-wheel drive prototype of the Kübelwagen and the Type 87 four-wheel drive 'Kübel/Beetle' Command Car, which in turn were based on the platform of the civilian Volkswagen Beetle. Erwin Komenda, Ferdinand Porsche's first car body designer, was forced to develop an all-new unitized bodytub structure since the flat floorpan chassis of the existing VW vehicles was unsuited to smooth movement through water. Komenda patented his ideas for the swimming car at the German Patent office.

I am working on two community Television programs. One is about local history, places, and events and the other is about local dog culture. I am offering Sponsors the opportunity to have me as a Community Outreach Ambassador for the Long Beach, CA. area, Southern California, or to help connect with a modern dog culture. I can be your Community Liaison and friendly local spokesperson.
Some of my interests include behavior, history, art, geology, archaeology, and nature. Many people think I like country music because I wear a cowboy hat, but I really prefer classical music.
I am also interested in building websites, online marketing, and creating media. Especially video. I enjoy doing both online and offline video. If you are interested in talking about dogs, online learning, making websites, marketing, or media add me to your circle and let the conversation begin.
Circles that I might fit nicely into are
- Dog training
- Pet Industry
- Online Learning
- Sustainable Development
- Personal Development
- South East Asia
- Road Trips
- Public Access Digital Net Producers CertificationCommunity Television Poduction
