i learned that America’s oldest, unbroken treaty relationship is with Morocco, which was the first nation to recognize the US. The treaty was signed by Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and Sultan Muhammad III. It has lasted 232 years and is called the “Treaty of Friendship” (x)
We finally finish this amazing series on HBO about black families living through the Jim Crow era and fighting not only against racism but witchcraft. Based on a book which in turn is based on H.P Lovecraft horror stories. A known racist in his time. Ain’t that a bitch?
British students who study history, I have a question. How much of your history constitutes your colonial phase, and what do your textbooks say about it? The events and exploitations that make up more than one whole thick history book for us, do they mean anything to you?
An english man who did let you know ancient india and it’s glory - you have forgotten him. Haven’t you ?
I have met many fellow indians and asked them about King Ashoka . They, in reply, told me about Maurya empire , Budhisms , rock edict and Ashoka’s achievement - everything in one go . As I asked - do you know about James Princep, their ans. Came
It is known to me that in india there was an ancient practice"Shruti"( being learned by listening something ) but it was not known to me that in 21st century too has its impact across .
I won’t write something which is told by indians about Ashoka but would like to tribute the greatest English man James Princep who deciphered edicts and made Brahmi scripts vivid and so people of india could learn about a king and his vast kingdom .
James Princep was an assayer who came in india 15 September 1819 and worked at Asiatic society of Bengal . Very soon he was sent to Benares Mint and there he studied antiquities and made several experiments . He was an Orientalist with many interests in I.e Numismatics, Metallurgy and Meteorology .
He started observing ancients coins of india in the city . Very soon when visited delhi he found same scripts on the pillars and in Allahabad visits too . Same description he found on the rock . He started decoding and finally came up with result when fount this rock with two letters that depicted scripts is Bramhi scripts .
Here is the name which was written on the rock. - Danam . When srilanka came to know about this they communicated to Princept about Pali scripts and extensive studied brought two name in the light - “DevamPriya Piyadasi . Deciphering Brahmhi scripts made everything clear that the rocks , pillars belonged to Mauraya emperor . This way Kharoshthi scripts too deciphered by James Princep and name came up "Ashoka ”. He made a collective journal and translated into english and gave It to india .
Above is deciphered image by James princep , on that basis Ashoka regained it’s identity in india . Who ever try to praise British and their contribution in india now ? All are busy in Hindu rastra and dialogue .
We indian must be thankful to Britisher who established a society of antiquarian in 16th century and so from there journey started to know about past and it’s dynasties . Don’t be surprised that Indian glory is discovered by The west . This is as true as sun rises in the east . There were several antiquarian society in the West but not in the east . British came and tortured us but gave us everything which we were not able to know . Thank him and remember him . They have gifted you your past to cherish , to speak , to maintain .
Above is Princep Ghat in calcutta in a memory of James Princep . He died at the age of 41 but in very short time digged out very precious thing in India so that 19th century onwards indian started knowing about Ashoka and Magadh .
Pseudoarchaeology is any archaeology that does not hold up to academic rigour. Examples include ancient aliens, many Atlantis theories, Nazi archaeology (above, in the Amazon) and the Piltdown man. https://ift.tt/2RJwhLF

You’ve seen Blackpink and BTS in hanbok, haven’t you? Hanbok is a traditional Korean costume! Korea, China, and Japan have accepted and conveyed each other’s culture through exchanges for a long time.So, as far as foreigners see, the traditional clothing of the three countries looks similar. Today, this article is a brief description of the origin of Hanbok:D
Many people think that ‘Hanbok originated in the Ming Dynasty of China’, but that is a misleading fact.
The origin of Hanbok is not China. To find its roots, it must be traced back to the era of nomadic Scythia (Saka), which was active in Central Asia in the 7th and 3rd centuries BC. Hanbok, a traditional Korean national clothing, belongs to the Scythian culture. Scythians are nomadic people who ride horses, and they are characterized by simple clothes that narrow down to the ankle like horseback riding clothes today.Also, two-piece dresses such as 'bajijeogori’ (pants) and 'chimajeogori’ (skirt) which are the most basic of hanbok are also revealed in the skirt dress.
Also, Scythian costumes are made of tightness in the body, and convenient tops and bottoms are basic for activities such as horseback riding.This is different from the Greek costume, which is a representative costume of the West at that time, and is very different from the representative costume of China.
On the other hand, the Chinese Han (the ethnic group that occupies most of China) were very long outerwear that did not reveal pants on the outside, and the part of the clothes was very long and returned to the back.
