The world's oldest known payslip, from Ancient Sumeria. It shows how much beer was earned in wages.

Largest cities in Europe in 1800: London and Paris are obvious but Naples at #3 causes a double take! Far ahead of Vienna and twice the size of Amsterdam. Bairoch’s data.

Bones unidentified for centuries may belong to one of England’s most historically important queens
Up to 22 other Ango-Saxon royals and major figures also represented in trove that was ransacked during Civil War

Early England’s forgotten monarchs are set for a high-profile comeback – more than 1,000 years after they died.
Scientists are investigating the remains of up to 18 Anglo-Saxon kings and queens to try to determine their identities, potentially including the pivotal figure of Queen Emma. Emma of Normandy was the wife of two kings and the mother of two others, and one of the most significant figures of late Anglo-Saxon England.

The trove is believed to be the largest assemblage of medieval royal skeletal material ever scientifically analysed anywhere in the world.

The Obelisks of Heliopolis

The mighty stone monuments of ancient Egypt known as obelisks, a word derived from the Greek obeliskos, meaning “skewer” or “spit,” were known in Egyptian as tekhenu, which means “to pierce.” These monolithic, four-sided, pyramid-topped pillars rose high into the Egyptian sky, symbols of the sun god, Ra, and of sun worship, as well as of the power of the pharaoh and his relationship to the gods. As the center of the worship of Ra, Heliopolis at one time boasted dozens of obelisks, only one of which remains in its original position. However, not all of Heliopolis’ obelisks have been lost. At least seven were taken from Egypt and raised in metropolitan centers across the world. One goal of the Heliopolis Project, a joint Egyptian-German excavation, is to determine where the obelisks originally stood in the sacred city and how they functioned as part of its religious rituals.

We're taught all about the history of various empires, & the outcomes of great battles, but we know so little about how humans have shared their cultures with one another, & how creativity spreads. History should celebrate more great luthiers, & less great generals.

These 3 Jewish men arrived in #Auschwitz on the same day, & were tattooed 10 numbers apart. 73 years later, @sandibachom photographed them meeting for the first time for the Last Eyewitness Project, as free men who survived to build families and prosperous lives.

Never heard of this before.

Abraham Lincoln’s bloody gloves. Mary Todd insisted he take a pair to Ford’s Theater. Lincoln loathed gloves, so he folded them into his left pocket. When the President was shot by John Wilkes Booth, blood ran down his sleeve and pooled in the pocket which contained the gloves.
