Queens of the Viking Age: The Oseberg Ship and the Oseberg Grave - Archeology (Omega Viking Series Book 3)

by Omega Viking Series

The Oseberg ship burial is a Viking Age burial mound containing a double female inhumation, which is located in the Oslofjord area in Norway. Through dendrochronological analysis it has been possible to determine the year in which the timbers of the grave chamber were felled, and the burial has consequently been dated to AD834. A popular study of Oseberg has been that of focusing on the women buried in the mound in order to give them an identity. At first Snorri Sturluson’s Ynglingasaga was used and it was proposed that the burial was that of Queen Åsa or of Queen Alvhild, who are the only two queens mentioned in the saga.There are many questions and mysteries about Oseberg that have not yet been answered. We still do not know for sure who was buried in the mound, what position this per...

History of the Byzantine Empire: Rise and fall of the Eastern Roman Empire from Constantine the Great to fall of Constantinople

by Interesting History

The history of the Byzantium Empire is based on Byzantine and non-Byzantine sources. The starting point is given by Byzantine historians and chroniclers who with more or less accuracy write about historical events.Roman state organization, Greek culture, and Christianity are the foundations of the Byzantine Empire. This merger was due to the displacement of the Roman Empire to the East, caused by the great crisis of the third century. At first, the history of Byzantium was considered only the continuation of the Roman Empire. The name "Byzantium" originates from a later period. Its inhabitants called themselves the Romans, and their rulers were regarded as Roman emperors. Considering itself for the only legal empire of the world, Byzantium wanted the reign of all the countries of the forme...

THE ART OF MAKING WINE: According to the Doctrine of Chaptal.

by translator] Matthew Lynch

They were the best of times, they were the worst of times. The French Revolution had just given way to the Napoleonic Empire, while another Revolution was brewing- or at least fermenting- in vineyards all over France. "Citizen" Chaptal, Minister of the Interior, scholar, and renaissance man, introduced a revolution in wine making. To this day chaptalization is the term used for the use of calcium carbonate and sugar to improve the quality of wine. This is the simple manual that was sent out to vintners so that wine across France could be transformed from the often sour mess that it had once been to the reliably tasty and durable beverage we all know and love today. This book watershed moment in wine history, and even provides enough information for the enterprising wino to begin his o...

The Golden and Ghoulish Age of the Gibbet in Britain (Palgrave Historical Studies in the Criminal Corpse and its Afterlife)

by Sarah Tarlow

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 licence. This book is the first academic study of the post-mortem practice of gibbeting (‘hanging in chains’), since the nineteenth century. Gibbeting involved placing the executed body of a malefactor in an iron cage and suspending it from a tall post. A body might remain in the gibbet for many decades, while it gradually fell to pieces. Hanging in chains was a very different sort of post-mortem punishment from anatomical dissection, although the two were equal alternatives in the eyes of the law. Where dissection obliterated and de-individualised the body, hanging in chains made it monumental and rooted it in the landscape, adding to personal notoriety. Focusing particularly on the period 1752-1832, this book provides a summary of the histo...

The Teutonic Knights: The Catholic Church’s Most Powerful Warriors

by Conrad Bauer

The Teutonic Knights are said to be the toughest warriors the Catholic church ever had during the crusades and discover how this Catholic order has influenced our history and even, present times. The Teutonic Knights may receive less attention than the other two Catholic orders of Crusaders—the Hospitallers and the Knights Templar—but their history is just as storied and complex as that of their monastic peers. They were founded in the Middle Eastern fortress of Acre in 1190 AD, and the duress of this war-torn pressure cooker developed in the Teutonic Knights a ferocity that has rarely been matched. The Teutonic Knights were tough—so tough that on some occasions just the sight of their heavy armor, huge broadswords, and helmets with horns reaching to the sky was enough to send their...

Behind the European Project: Shadow Aristocracy, Secret Networks, Religious Orders and an Unholy Union

by Chris Deliso

There are two histories of the European Union- the bland official one, one which lauds a supposedly benevolent union of common values, and another, more sinister and hidden one. In Behind the European Project: Shadow Aristocracy, Secret Networks, Religious Orders and an Unholy Union, readers are introduced to both the original founding legends of today's EU, and the shadow brokers who played - and continue to play - the key role in promoting the European Projects ideological, financial and political goals.Recounted in an approachable yet comprehensive style, this book documents the widely unknown deep history of 20th century European unification movements- and their continued trajectory today.

The Institution of Criticism

by Peter Uwe Hohendahl

German radicals of the 1960s announced the death of literature. For them, literature both past and present, as well as conventional discussions of literary issues, had lost its meaning. In The Institution of Criticism, Peter Uwe Hohendahl explores the implications of this crisis from a Marxist perspective and attempts to define the tasks and responsibilities of criticism in advanced capitalist societies. Hohendahl takes a close look at the social history of literary criticism in Germany since the eighteenth century. Drawing on the tradition of the Frankfurt School and on Jürgen Habermas's concept of the public sphere, Hohendahl sheds light on some of the important political and social forces that shape literature and culture. The Institution of Criticism is made up of seven essays origina...

History of Vikings: An Epic Guide to the Viking Age and Feared Norse Seafarers - such as Egil Skallagrimsson, Ragnar Lothbrok, Ivar the Boneless, and More (Epic World History Book 2)

by Epic World History

The History of Vikings: Viking Age and Feared Norse Seafarers. Such as Egil Skallagrimsson, Ragnar Lothbrok, Ivar the Boneless, and MoreHistory is always filled with information, which describes different events that took place at different periods. As we read history books, we learn and discover about certain events. We learn what preceded those events or what caused them. We want to know why things were as they were (or how we learned). However, the main thing with history is that information we have can often be misleading or incomplete. The similar thing happened with Vikings. For many of us, the first picture that comes to our minds when we mention the word “Viking” is a savage, colossal man, wearing a beard, and carrying a huge axe in one hand. Many of us have at least heard of t...
