The Beginning of Time

The short video I’m posting today is truly a time machine. The American Museum of Natural History produced it and I think you’ll enjoy it. Thank you, Victor Mair, for drawing it to my attention!

Happy New Year’s Eve!

Old and New Cairo

Over the next week or so,  while I am off on holidays,  I will be posting archaeological or historical  images that I  love for one reason or another. This image is a painting by Louis Comfort Tiffany, entitled ” On the Way between Old and New Cairo, Citadel Mosque of Mohammed Ali, and Tombs of the Mamelukes.”  It dates to around  1872.

Jerusalem’s Western Wall

Over the next week or so,  while I am off on holidays,  I will be posting archaeological or historical  photos that I  love for one reason or another. This photo of the Western Wall in Jerusalem was taken by Wayne McLean.
