Treasure-filled warrior's grave found in Russia

Treasure-filled warrior's grave found in Russia | Cultural History | Scoop.it

Hidden in a necropolis situated high in the mountains of the Caucasus in Russia, researchers have discovered the grave of a male warrior laid to rest with gold jewelry, iron chain mail and numerous weapons, including a 36-inch iron sword set between his legs.

That is just one amazing find among a wealth of ancient treasures dating back more than 2,000 years that scientists have uncovered there.

Among their finds are two bronze helmets, discovered on the surface of the necropolis. One helmet (found in fragments and restored) has relief carvings of curled sheep horns while the other has ridges, zigzags and other odd shapes.

Thanks to 'Lincoln,' Mississippi Has Finally, Definitely Ratified the Thirteenth Amendment

Thanks to 'Lincoln,' Mississippi Has Finally, Definitely Ratified the Thirteenth Amendment | Cultural History | Scoop.it
A middle-aged recent immigrant from India recently set into motion a series of events that eventually led to Mississippi finally retifying the Constitutional amendment banning slavery.
Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

The state did vote to ratify the amendment back in 1995 - though through an apparent clerical error, Mississippi never officially notified the United States Archivist of the ratification.
