Historic manor still bears axe scars of Cromwell's hunt for Charles I

Historic manor still bears axe scars of Cromwell's hunt for Charles I | Stay in History | Scoop.it

A manor with six huge axe marks cut into its oak front door by the axes of Oliver Cromwell's army in the English Civil War has gone on the market for £4.75million.

Cromwell's Roundheads attempted to gain entry to West Hall as they swept through the Dorset countryside looking for the disposed monarch Charles I and his supporters at the outbreak of war in the mid 1600s.

West Hall, a Catholic stronghold allied to King, was heavily defended and, try as they might, the attackers could not gain access to the manor house... [click headline for more]

Cultural tourism untapped, study says

Cultural tourism untapped, study says | Stay in History | Scoop.it

Cultural tourism in Greece and research into related issues are in urgent need of comprehensive development, the Center of Economic Planning and Research (KEPE) said in its latest bulletin.

“The potential is not simply there but there is a surplus and it’s often latent. What is required is a comprehensive and systematic drive at all levels for the right projection and further tapping in the tourism sector,” the report said.

Exploring Olive Oil Culture In Tuscany

Exploring Olive Oil Culture In Tuscany | Stay in History | Scoop.it

Olive oil is a super ingredient with the ability to enhance the flavors of a dish while also adding antioxidants and heart-healthy benefits. That being said, there are many misconceptions that exist on the product. That’s why — with the help of agronomist Marco Soldani of Castelfalfi and agronomist Francesco Caselli of Castello di Gabbiano — we’re debunking some of olive oils most common misconceptions. Use the following facts to help you choose a top-of-the-line olive oil:

you can cook with extra virgin olive oilnot all extra virgin olive oils are created equalpure olive oil isn’t really purelow acidity is important when it comes to olive oilnot all olive oil comes from italyit’s much more than squeezing oil from the fruitlight destroys olive oilolive oil does not get better with age.only a small portion of the olive gets used for oilcold extraction is great for flavoryou can’t judge by the label if it’s good olive oilyour extra virgin olive oil may not actually be extra virginthat olive oil from italy may not be italianolive oil is essentially a fruit juice

Italian Food History: Why do Italians eat so well ?

Italian Food History: Why do Italians eat so well ? | Stay in History | Scoop.it

Truth is, Italy has become a model to imitate in the way ingredients are to be prepared, cooked and then consumed in company.

An excursus over the more and least known facts about italian food history. Where does it come from? What does "typical italian food" really mean? [...]


Via Mariano Pallottini
intoHistory's insight:

Our vision about Italian culinary traditions is full of clichés. The historical reality has little to do with our image of the farmers’ simple and genuine lifestyle. Refined, varied and healthy food was the privilege of an elite. Life was tough and creativity was rather a way to hide the precarious and poor dietary conditions of the population...

Cartographic Anomalies: How Map Projections Have Shaped Our Perceptions of the World

Cartographic Anomalies: How Map Projections Have Shaped Our Perceptions of the World | Stay in History | Scoop.it

Elizabeth Borneman explores how cartography and cartographic projections help and hinder our perception of the world.

"How do you think the world (starting with our perceptions) could change if the map looked differently? What if Australia was on top and the hemispheres switched? By changing how we look at a map we truly can begin to explore and change our assumptions about the world we live in."

 

Geography doesn’t just teach us about the Earth; it provides ways for thinking about the Earth that shapes how we see the world.  Maps do the same; they represent a version of reality and that influences how we think about places.

Emily Coats's curator insight, May 27, 10:34 AM

UNIT 1 

This article discusses map projections and how they shape our perception of the world. Maps influence how we see the world, and could change the way we see it as well. These projections show us many different views of the Earth, which is very influential to our perspectives. This applies to unit 1 and its major concepts and underlying geographical perspective such as analyzing maps.

intoHistory's insight:

Les ducs de Bourgogne les plus connus – Philippe le Hardi, Jean sans Peur, Philippe le Bon et Charles le Téméraire, dit aussi Charles le Hardi – vont recomposer peu à peu, d’abord sans grand projet, puis avec une volonté politique très claire, la Lotharingie de l’empire carolingien au 15e siècle. Mais la mort de Charles le Téméraire sans héritier mâle légitime direct, six ans après sa déclaration d’indépendance, met fin à cette ambition.

Les Nazis et l’archéologie en France

Les Nazis et l’archéologie en France | Stay in History | Scoop.it
Conservateur en chef en charge des collections celtiques et gauloises au musée d’Archéologie nationale de Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Laurent Olivier a pu mener à bien sa passionnante enquête grâce à certaines archives du musée évoquant les liens entre le IIIe Reich et les services archéologiques français.

 

« Près de 90 % des archéologues allemands, rappelle l'auteur en préambule, ont été membres du parti nazi. » On sait peu que l'archéologie avait été mise au service du nazisme pour fournir une légitimation scientifique et culturelle à sa germanisation forcée de l'Europe et à son épuration raciale.


Volontairement ou non, qu'ils soient allemands ou français, ils ont mis leurs connaissances à disposition des SS pour déterminer quelles étaient les régions aux populations d'origine biologique aryenne. Les chapitres les plus édifiants concernent la récupération des régionalistes alsaciens et bretons pour saper l'idée d'une France unie, l'implication de certains archéologues bourguignons réunissant les preuves de la germanité de leur région et les efforts de propagande du régime de Vichy pour créer un parallèle entre la défaite de la France de 1940 devant les Allemands et celle des Gaulois à Alésia devant les Romains.


L'ouvrage se conclut par l'analyse (très pertinente) de la dette de l'archéologie française envers les méthodes introduites par l'archéologie allemande nationale-socialiste (analyse de l'évolution du paysage et de l'organisation globale des cultures, concept de patrimoine archéologique, création de musées de plein air).

I find nothing more captivating than reading a literary work on the actual site that served as its inspiration. Certain historical novels, poems, theatrical dialogues or even philosophical essays have an extraordinary power to whisk us back into another era, immersing us in a forgotten context or drama-ridden atmosphere where humanity is called into question. And the pull is even greater when we are physically present on the site enlivened by such writing.

Tuscany and the European Heritage Days 2013

Tuscany and the European Heritage Days 2013 | Stay in History | Scoop.it

Forty-nine European countries will join this year’s European Heritage Days, a yearly international event to promote the European culture and heritage: two days, Saturday September 28 and Sunday September 29, entirely dedicated to art and culture, with special opening hours for museums and archeological sites, guided tours, conferences, meetings, and so much more.

Of course Italy, with all its artistic beauty, will participate in the event. And Tuscany could not hold back and many events have been planned for the occasion. Here  you can find the complete list (in Italian, sorry!).

This year the European Heritage Days include also “A night at the museum” (Saturday 28): a special night during which the main art sites will remain open beyond normal opening hours, giving us all the excitement of a night visit to precious places such as the Uffizi Gallery, the Accademia Gallery and the Medici Chapels (free entrance, from 7 to 11 pm).
