I found this post on tumblr really interesting. The image itself that was taken is absolutely gorgeous. Who would've thought that a tomb such as this one lasted for so long. With all the different calamties that occur you would assume that this would be destroyed by now but it still hasn't.

Joy Kinley's curator insight, October 27, 2013 6:44 PM

It is hard to imagine the wealth that was on display at the Palace of Versailles.  This had previously been a hunting lodge on the outskirts of Paris when it was remodeled at tax payers great expense.

Voar Travel's curator insight, December 2, 2014 12:44 PM

How can I put into words the beauty of Palace of Versailles.... It is the most over-the-top, painstakingly embellished, extravagantly decorated, extensively luxurious palace I have ever stepped foot into. The ceilings depict various scenes of celestial beings and Greek mythology. Gold seems to be the common material and color used, and the bedrooms look like it could house God Himself. King Louis the XIV wanted his palace to reflect his legacy; they didn't call him the "Sun King" for nothing. Perhaps the most striking and ethereal room in this palace is the "Hall of Mirrors." Or as I'll put it, the "Hallway to God's Freaking Doorstep." Looking down this hallway you will be blown away by the intensity of its beautiful grandeur. Proceed with caution. (Chae Chung)

It might sound strange but we can learn a lot from a culture from the burial practices that they have.  From this grave we know that the family was wealthy and what religion they practiced.  We can also learn what is important to a culutre.

Joy Kinley's curator insight, October 27, 2013 6:22 PM

Most historians teach that Rome fell because of overexpansion, corruption and invasion.  But it makes sense that disease can foster the collapse of Rome.  Other diseases have led to the collapse of empires or systems, for example the Bubonic Plague is frequently cited as a cause of the collapse of the feudal system in Western Europe.  So overexpansion coupled with a massive outbreak would be devastating for an empire.

Nicole Balashov's curator insight, January 2, 2015 2:53 AM

The main idea of this interview is to give an aditional reasons to fall of Roman Empire, and this is spread of infective dieseases, that happen following climate changes.

Joy Kinley's curator insight, October 2, 2013 11:46 AM

Maps are much more than just directions to a place.  From ancient maps we can see what areas were controlled or had power in an area, the location of important landmarks, and which places were considered more valuable.  Maps provide an interesting view into the beliefs of people in the past.
