How did the image of Guy Fawkes change from a terrorist into an icon of the protest movements around the world?

The Misunderstood Legacy of Guy Fawkes
“Remember, remember the fifth of November,” the old British rhyme goes.
For more than 400 years, Britain has remembered. Every year, on this day, fireworks are set off, bonfires are built, and effigies are burned to commemorate the failed 17th-century plot by a group of English Catholics to blow up the Houses of Parliament—with the country’s entire political establishment and reigning Protestant monarch, King James I, inside.
But for an event rooted in remembrance, what has come to be known here in Britain as Guy Fawkes Night (named after one of the key plotters) could not be further removed from it. Today, the annual ritual is more festive and fun than religious and monarchical. Even Fawkes himself has taken on new meaning, becoming best known around the world not as a would-be religious extremist and terrorist, but as a populist hero. His life has been romanticized in film, his likeness has been preserved in masks, and his legacy has morphed into an almost mythical tale of anti-government rebellion, anarchy, and subversion.https://www.msn.com/en-gb/news/uknews/the-misunderstood-legacy-of-g...

Hand made models are better the CGI if they are are done well.

They all look good.

Marvellous hand-made models of Ancient Rome. Nowadays one would use CGI but I'm not sure which I prefer?

Interesting Quora post on American English

https://www.quora.com/Which-American-dialect-from-colonial-times-is...

The main dialect areas of the US can be traced to the four main migrations of English speaking people to America from the British Isles during the colonial period (1607-1775). One of the main researchers of areal dialects of the United States was Hans Kurath, author of the Dialect Atlas of America. He found that there are four main dialect areas in the Eastern US: New England (including New York), Middle Atlantic, Backwoods, and Southern Tidewater. The main dialectal divisions can further be subdivided into at least 27 sub-dialects. The original eastern dialects tended to become more leveled and to merge farther west.

Would like to see that.

LIDAR is great at finding old sites.  Thanks for posting this Stephen.

Bronze Age monument discovered in Forest of Dean
A previously unknown Bronze Age monument has been discovered hidden in woodland in the Forest of Dean following an airborne laser scan.
The ritual monument, known as a ring cairn, dates back to about 2,000 BC.
It consists of a circular bank with several small limestone standing stones on top.
Archaeologist Jon Hoyle, who found it, said it was the only site of its kind known about in Gloucestershire, and was a "very significant" discovery.

Archaeologist Jon Hoyle said nobody knows precisely what ring cairns were used for 

It was identified following a LiDAR (light detection and ranging) survey of the Forest of Dean.
The technique used laser beams fired from an aeroplane to create a 3D record of the land surface, effectively removing the trees from the landscape.
Mr Hoyle said when he studied the data, he spotted an "extremely circular" feature, which he thought initially might be a World War Two gun emplacement.
After visiting the site, at a secret location near the village of Tidenham, he realised it was much older, dating to between 2,500 BC and 1,500 BC.

"It was very exciting. I was expecting to find quite a lot of new sites with the LiDAR, but nothing as interesting as this."
The ring cairn is about 25m (80ft) in diameter and made up of a 5m-wide (16ft) rubble bank, with at least 10 white limestone standing stones, each no more than 1m (3ft) high, standing on top.
Mr Hoyle said ring cairns were "common in upland areas, in places like Derbyshire, Northumberland and Wales" but this was the only known one in Gloucestershire.

"Nobody knows precisely what they were used for. Some have been found in association with burials, and often there appear to be residues of charcoal in places like this, suggesting rituals that involved fire," he added.
The discovery is featured in a new book by Mr Hoyle - Hidden Landscapes of the Forest of Dean.

The Egyptian mummy art of the Hellenic and Roman period was so true to life you wouldn't see anything like it again until the renaissance.
