Last week, I was lucky enough to visit a place I’ve been dreaming about since I was little and obsessed with Egyptian mythology and becoming an archaeologist. As always, the reality was different than what I’d imagined — but no less magical.
On today's #motifmonday we are showing examples of figures with masks! "Mask" is a word we use to describe when an anthropomorph has a different colored shape in the middle of its head, as if they have something in front of their face. Masks are seen only on Pecos River Style figures and is another attribute that gives us a clue as to who the figure could be depicting. See our comments below to learn more!
Ontem no #fantástico @showdavida rolou uma votação para que o público decidisse sobre o nome do esqueleto masculino brasileiro de 9.400 anos. Esse caso é do indivíduo encontrado no sepultamento de n° 26 no sítio arqueológico Lapa do Santo - MG. O indivíduo é representado por um crânio, com as mãos dispostas sobre o rosto de maneira peculiar: a mão direita estava sobre o lado esquerdo da face, com os dedos voltados para cima e a mão esquerda, sobre o lado direito da face, com os dedos voltados para baixo. Além disso, um pedaço seccionado de rádio direito (um dos ossos do antebraço) e as 6 primeiras vértebras cervicais que estavam articuladas entre si e com o crânio. Marcas de corte são observadas no rádio, na mandíbula e na vértebra C6. A posição dos ossos e as marcas de corte indicam que esse se trata do caso de decaptação mais antiga do Novo Mundo! O esqueleto foi escavado em 2007 e o artigo publicado na PlosOne em 2015. #showdavida #arqueologia #genetica #natgeobrasil #usp #ibusp #maeusp #archaeology #povodeluzia #cienciasbiologicas #antropologia #historia #dna #índios
Ovid, Heroides 5. 56 ff (Roman poetry C1st B.C. to C1st A.D.) : "A light breeze stirs the sails that hang idly from the rigid mast, and the water foams white with the churning of the oar. In wretchedness I follow with my eyes the departing sails as far as I may, and the sand is humid with my tears; that you may swiftly come again, I pray the sea-green Nereides." From the Nereid Monument / Xanthos / Turkey '390 - 380 BC' #statue #sculpture #greek #discovery #details #woman #aesthetic #london #black #blackandwhite #blackandwhitephotography #blackwork #sonypictures #sonyimages #bnw_drama #superstarz_bw #bnw_mystery #bnw_just #bnw_kings #big_shotz_bw #art #arthistory #archaeology #history #turkey #old #light #bnw_challenge #soul #instatravel

It ain't always trowels and truffles in the world of Archaeology here in the Northeast! With the inevitable conclusion of any Archaeological Investigation/Excavation comes the decision making process of where to dig next. Fortunately for us we find ourselves in such an active area Archaeologically speaking that we basically followed artifact density patterns and bumped our new site dileneation roughly 100 meters south of our current location. Our site area now resembles a construction zone as opposed to a scientific research area and with good cause. A good Archaeologist in the Northeast should not only possess competent survival skills and be in top physical condition, as much of your exploratory forays lead you out into some pretty wild areas for days on end, humping heavy loads of equipment over rough terrain; but carpentry, building and heavy machinery operating skills are a must as well. Upon establishing a new site area, tracts must be cleared of trees and heavy vegetation; where axe and chain saw skills are utilized extensively. Whereupon clearing an area, weather ports that are impervious to the elements must be constructed with indoor wooden flooring along with all other sorts of structural components to make the site area as protected from the outside elements as possible; and all of that in its entirety must be accomplished within an established time frame in order to make the transition as cost effective as is feasible. We are a 100% self contained operation with all of us possessing the majority of these skills making us very cost and time effective. Our little team of Archaeologists and volunteers are the best I've ever worked with period; and because of great leadership and motivational skills always prevalent, we are always able to make these transitions as efficient as possible. I cant wait to get this wrapped up and get our shovels in the ground👍🏻 #bushlife #bushcraft #outdoors #outdoorlife #firearms #usa #anthropology #archaeologist #primitivelnowledge #nature #ancientways #explore #adventure #neverstopexploring #neverstoplearning #survival #science #archaeology #instalike #wilderness #instagood #history #conservation #excavation #nativeamerican #prehistory
In Naples, we went down through a giant hole in the basement of a church. As we descended, Dani - that’s him and his brother Luca - announced, “let us now descend into the blind world,” which is The Inferno, Canto IV. We wandered for hours through the labyrinth under the city. It was like floating through inner space. .

Dr Colin Grier, in collaboration with University of Idaho's Center for Resilient Communities: NW Coast archaeological data tell us about 'time-vetted' solutions to environmental change. One time-vetted solution? To rework our social institutions to harness 'local and intimate monitoring of changing ecological circumstances. Check out more about this research in the WSU magazine.

So much #archaeology #history lost in the disaster. So many questions that there are no answers too. Crazy!!! #lisbon #lisboa #portugal
Post excavation work involves many hours shuffling through books for background research. These are just a few of the books we use as aids to help us identify artifacts and interpret our assemblage. . This week our students will be traveling to Augusta, Georgia to present research at the Southeastern Archaeological Conference. We’ll be posting photos here and blog posts later this week, so don’t forget to keep up with our posts! . . . #fsuasmap #fsu #fsuresearch #floridastate #floridastateuniversity #asfsu #archaeology #floridaarchaeology #missionarchaeology #tallahassee
Crazy, so much history lost or destroyed. Much of the castle walls were also gone. Haha, I guess an earthquake ranging from 8.6-9.4, a tsunami, and a week or so of fires will do that. But, once again we have #archaeology #history ranging from the Phoenicians to the Christuan kingdom. #lisbon #lisboa #portugal
@Regran_ed from @greece_and_rome - Queen’s Apartment in the Minoan Palace of Knossos (Crete, Greece), 1700-1400 BC. Knossos was an important city in antiquity, which was inhabited continuously from the Neolithic period until the 5th century AD. According to tradition, this palace was the seat of the wise king Minos. The Queen's Apartments contained windows, benches, a corridor and secondary rooms in which were found a bathroom with running water, and sarcophagi. On the back wall is a reconstruction of the “Dolphins Fresco”. 🔹 Appartamento della regina nel palazzo minoico di Cnosso (Creta, Grecia), 1700-1400 a.C. Cnosso era una città importante nell'antichità, abitata ininterrottamente dal periodo neolitico fino al V secolo d.C. Secondo la tradizione, questo palazzo era la sede del saggio re Minosse. Gli appartamenti della regina presentavano finestre, panchine, un corridoio e stanze secondarie in cui è stato trovato un bagno con acqua corrente, e sarcofagi. Sulla parete di fondo c'è una ricostruzione dell' "Affresco dei Delfini". 📷 Photo by @arturo_m_pellegrino 👉 Tag #greeceandrome #greece_and_rome 🔹 🔸 🔹 🔸 🔹 #ancient #ancientarchitecture #architecture #archaeology #history #ancientrome #ancientgreece #greece #rome #picoftheday #followme #art #photooftheday #photography #natgeotravel #natgeo #culture #sculpture #travel #ruins #discovery #ceramic #painture #monument #beniculturali30 #crete #knossos #cnossus

I had planned to finish filming my linguistics video but forgot a critical piece of equipment. So I thought instead I’d let you all know that once I get 500 likes on the Facebook page, I’m gonna share some cool something or other that I’ll cook up for the occasion. .

A silver Roman cup with several skeletons, a tripod, a dog and a wreath around it. It belonged to the Boscoreale Treasure, which was an incredible hoard of Roman masterpieces in silver weighing over 30 kilograms plus thousands of gold coins. An extremely wealthy person owned and deposited the hoard before the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in Boscoreale (near Pompeii.) After the treasure was found in 1895, sadly most of it was illegally sold off and this piece along with most of the silver ended up being donated by a member of the Rothschild banking family to the Louvre in Paris, France. Tomorrow I'll start posting from my current trip to Roman Africa...stay tuned! 😀 #treasure #skeleton #louvre #france #paris #ancientrome #italian #archeologia #archaeology #silver #instatravel #history #ig_paris #roman #museum #incredible #epic #frankreich #travelgram #spqr #tesori_italiani #beniculturali30 #dog #arthistory #art #artlovers #masterpiece
The views here are incredible. Awesome castle in the middle of the city definitely see why they built it here. #history #archaeology #lisbon #lisboa #portugal
The Roman Baths in #bath #england . The earliest inscription found on a monument at the baths dates back to 76 AD, indicating they were built around/before then. Truly incredible.

Rhus trilobata is a shrub in the sumac genus (Rhus) with the common names skunkbush sumac, sourberry, skunkbush, and three-leaf sumac. It is native to the western half of Canada and the Western United States, from the Great Plains to California and south through Arizona extending into northern Mexico. It can be found from deserts to mountain peaks up to about 7,000 feet. Grows in many types of plant communities, such as the grasslands east of the Rocky Mountains, mountainous shrubland, pine, juniper, and fir forests, wetlands, oak woodlands, and chaparral. The plant is destroyed above ground  by wildfire but rarely killed, and will readily sprout again in burned areas. Many varieties.

Tens of cat mummies have been uncovered near the Egyptian site of Saqqara, along with about a hundred wooden cat statues gilded in gold and a bronze one dedicated to the goddess Bastet. Pictured is one of the best preserved of the statues. In addition to the cats, rare scarab beetle mummies have also been found at the site, resting in linen wraps inside small limestone sarcophagi, along with numerous other findings. The Egyptian Department of Antiquities made the announcement this weekend, and news of the discovery has spread through the media like wildfire. Archaeology fans should keep an eye on Egypt: Minister of Antiquities Dr. Khaled El-Enany promises to unveil two more new discoveries before the end of 2018.

Universal Grain English Version OUT NOW!!! (YouTube🔎: "Allatra TV Universal Grain") It was an absolute honour to open the segment introducing our project Universal Grain. The project brings people together from across the globe. It discusses what inspires common ideas; searches for the answers that humanity has for centuries tried to solve. "Who is a person? Why are they born? What is the purpose of their life on this planet?" We looked at the historical and archaeological record, decoding our past ancestors use of language and art. The signs and symbols that continue to pop up in history. In Universal Grain, Part 1, we dive into the eytomology and the public's association with the word 'Choice'. The project is all about connecting people across the world with a common goal; to unite and share our ideas regardless of the borders and boxes society puts us in.
