John Ward's insight:

"Dr. Mohamed Ibrahim, Minister of Antiquities, announced that the Egyptian Spanish mission headed by Dr. Myriam Seco Alvarez working in the funerary temple of Thutmosis III on West Bank, Luxor has discovered a black granite head representing a King of the New Kingdom. The discovered head measures 29.6 cm height,

24.3 cm width and 26.9 cm depth. The Minister said that the first look on the details of discovered statue head shows that it is likely belongs to a statue of a king followed the reign of Thutmosis III but to determine for sure, it would require more study. Mohamed Abd Al Maqsoud, head of the Egyptian Antiquities department said the head was discovered in the trench at the northern side of the second courtyard of the funerary temple.  He added "the head shows with a wig, round face and 8 cm long ears. Nose and chin are broken but part of the neck is still there."

Rue tops, one clove of garlic, a walnut, a grain of salt, and eat on an empty stomach everyday for up to a month, and you must be cheerful, and this recipe, it's good against vermin and it's perfect.
John Ward's insight:

Starting with the Black Death in the fourteenth century, Europe would suffer from repeated attacks of the plague for the rest of the Middle Ages and centuries afterwards.

John Ward's insight:
Glassmaking originated around 2500 B.C. in Mesopotamia, and by the mid-first millennium B.C. it had spread throughout the ancient world. The number of vessels made from glass remained limited, however, until the introduction of two important technical advances—the use of the blowpipe and closed multipart molds—in the late first century B.C. and the early first century A.D., respectively.

Skeletons of war dead from 11,000 BC go on show at the British Museum | The Related Researches & News of Dr John Ward | Scoop.it
The remains, displaying breaks and slash marks of violent death, were found in a cemetery on the banks of the Nile river
John Ward's insight:

Lying on their left sides, curled together, the two skeletons on display for the first time at the British Museum look peacefully laid to rest. But the razor-sharp stone flakes scattered around and among the bones are the remains of ancient weapons, with a myriad breaks and slash marks on the skeletons. The two are among the oldest war dead in the world, men who died a brutal death after violent lives 13,000 years ago.
