Turin Papyrus Map, c.1150 BC | History Today

Turin Papyrus Map, c.1150 BC | History Today | Navigate | Scoop.it
Discovered near modern Luxor (ancient Thebes) between 1814 and 1821 by agents of Bernadino Drovetti, the French Consul General in Egypt, this is considered one of the oldest known topographical, geographical and geological maps. It survives in fragments but, when recombined, it is about 280cm wide (just one fragment is pictured here). It was produced  around 1150 BC by a well-known Scribe of the Tomb, Amennakhte, in preparation for a quarrying expedition by Ramesses IV and predates the next oldest known geological map by some 2,900 years. It is held in the Turin Museum in northern Italy. It shows a 15km-stretch of the Wadi Hammamat, the ‘Valley of Many Baths’, oriented with south and the source of the Nile at the top. Shown on this portion of the map are a quarry for bekhen stone, a prized blue-green material used to carve statues of gods and pharaohs, and a gold mine. Nestled at the foot of some hills (stylised cones with pink, wavy flanks) to the north are four small houses for gold-workers, which are close to a temple to the god Amun. The map also shows the locations of various rock types, including gold-bearing quartz, which  is represented by three pinkish stripes on the hill at the top, above the gold mine. Inscriptions elsewhere describe the purpose and destination of the quarried stone.

If you want some insights into where the content marketing industry may be headed, it might just help to take a look at where it’s been.

As we pointed out when CMI shared its History of Content Marketing infographic in 2012, brands have been telling their stories to audiences for hundreds of years. Not to mention that storytelling itself is one of the oldest forms of communication.

description by The Scout Report

 

"The Royal Society of Chemistry runs Learn Chemistry, an educational website designed for both educators and students. This site includes thousands of lesson plans, laboratory activities, worksheets, online quizzes, and links to additional resources (check out the 11-15-2013 Scout Report for a description of the full site). One of the many useful features of this website is the On This Day in Chemistry page. Here, readers can check out 366 historical chemistry tidbits, one for each calendar day. These tidbits include the births of famous chemists, major inventions and breakthrough discoveries, and important chemistry developments in governmental research and the academy. One can read about the opening of the first nuclear power station (June 27, 1954), the discovery of the electron (April 30, 1897), and the first use of xerography (October 22, 1938). Each On This Day entry is accompanied by Related Resource links, which bring readers to texts and videos related to each day's topic."
