The recent discovery of a 2,400-year-old tablet in Spain has shed light on an ancient lost civilization. The 8-inch slate, unearthed at the Casas del Turuñuelo archaeological site, appears inscribed with an alphabetic sequence of 21 signs, potentially belonging to the lost Paleo-Hispanic society known as Tartessos.

This journey leaves the last of civilization behind, traveling into an utterly arid realm. Conditions have become even harsher than when the first explorers entered the area. Be cautious. #travel #history https://cromwell-intl.com/travel/morocco/mhamid/into-the-desert.html?s=mc

A short journey may hold much of interest, as I found along this stretch of the coast of a Hyperborean warrior nation where you wade across the icy waters of a fjord. #travel #history https://cromwell-intl.com/travel/iceland/hali-hofn/hofn.html?s=mc

Taverns in Korinthia offer veritable feasts. Grilled meat, kebabs, salads, and much more. The wine is permeated with pine resin. It's not the style of the soft city dwellers, but 'tis most refreshing on a hot day, of which Korinthia has many. #travel #history https://cromwell-intl.com/travel/greece/greek-food.html?s=mc

A 4,000-year-old Greek hilltop site mystifies archaeologists. It could spell trouble for new airport plans.

AP reports on the find "from Crete’s Minoan civilization, famous for its sumptuous palaces, flamboyant art and enigmatic writing system. Resembling a huge car wheel from above, the ruins of the labyrinthine, 1,800-square-meter (19,000-square-foot) building came to light during a recent dig by archaeologists."

This port town in the far east of Korinthia's largest island is an excellent base for your explorations of mysterious monuments and tombs from a time before #history was recorded. #travel https://cromwell-intl.com/travel/greece/crete/eastern-crete/sitia.html?s=mc

One thing I really miss about old-school WWDC: The camaraderie.

The meals with a massive room full of cafeteria table seating, huge buzz of conversation, juice, coffee, and snacks everywhere.

Brown bag events (like @Drwave showing off Pixar inside baseball, or astronauts talking about launch drama).

And the party night, with a popular surprise band on stage and all of us partying into the night.

Miss those days. Anyone else?

Did you know that parts of #Germany used to have a "Sparrow Tax"?

The House #Sparrow (Passer domesticus), is a tiny bird which is thought to have cohabitated with humans for more than 10k years.

As it joined humans when #agriculture became common, it was known as a "seed thief".

This led to a degree in 1743 in #Hannover, that every person had to deliver sparrow heads.

Furthermore in 1789 in #Stuttgart, 12 live sparrows were to be delivered.

The #fine was 12 Kreuzer.

This temple was one of the wonders of the post-Hyborian age. Dedicated to the Mother Goddess, it was destroyed many times, once burned by a mad man hoping for fame, but always rebuilt. Until the empire fell and it was forgotten for millennia. #travel #history https://cromwell-intl.com/travel/turkey/temple-of-artemis/?s=mc
