Effective use of power in the Bronze Age societies of Central Europe

1000pa (Jan. 11, 2011) — During the first part of the Bronze Age in the Carpathian Basin in Central Europe, a large proportion of the population lived in what are known as tell-building societies. A thesis in archaeology from the University of Gothenburg (Sweden) shows that the leaders of these societies had the ability to combine several sources of power in an effective way in order to dominate the rest of the population, which...

Hidden literary references discovered in the Mona Lisa

1000pa (Jan. 6, 2011) — Queen's University Classics professor emeritus Ross Kilpatrick believes the Leonardo da Vinci masterpiece, the Mona Lisa, incorporates images inspired by the Roman poet Horace and Florentine poet Petrarch. The technique of taking a passage from literature and incorporating it into a work of art is known as 'invention' and was used by many Renaissance artists.

"The composition of the Mona Lisa is striking. Why does...

The 'mad' Egyptian scholar who proved Aristotle wrong

1000pa (Jan. 10, 2011) — Ibn al-Haytham's 11th-century Book of Optics, which was published exactly 1000 years ago, is often cited alongside Newton's Principia as one of the most influential books in physics. Yet very little is known about the writer, considered by many to be the father of modern optics.

January's Physics World features a fanciful re-imagining of the 10-year period in the life of the medieval Muslim polymath, written by Los...

Learning from leftovers: A history drawn from turkey bones

Fothergill's PhD is in palaeopathology, the study of disease in ancient remains. By studying the health of turkeys from different countries and different historical periods, she is able to draw...

Sardine Run: Headlong race for survival of the species

1000pa (Dec. 28, 2010) — Between May and July each year, millions of sardine move northward along the East coast of South Africa to reach spawning sites where they release their eggs. This is the spectacular Sardine Run. The migrating fish come under relentless attack from dolphins, sea lions, whales, tuna, birds and fishermen during their headlong, even suicidal race. Why do the sardine brave such formidable dangers? How did this dogged...

Warring Greeks found peace in ancient Egypt: Researcher uncovers origins of Greek trade city in Egypt's Nile delta region

1000pa (Dec. 7, 2010) — Naukrtis, a Greek trade emporium on Egyptian soil, has long captured the imagination of archaeologists and historians. Not only is the presence of a Greek trading settlement in Egypt during the 7th and 6th century B.C.E. surprising, but the Greeks that lived there in harmony hailed from several Greek states which traditionally warred amongst themselves.

Dr. Alexander Fantalkin of Tel Aviv University's Department of...

1000pa (Dec. 6, 2010) — New research led by economists at the University of Warwick reveals that medieval England was not only far more prosperous than previously believed, it also actually boasted an average income that would be more than double the average per capita income of the world's poorest nations today.

In a paper entitled British Economic Growth 1270-1870 published by the University of Warwick's Centre on Competitive Advantage in...
