The Minoan palace of Knossos, Crete. With already a history of...









The Minoan palace of Knossos, Crete. With already a history of extensive human occupation, the first palace was built here approximately 2000 BC.

It is easy to forget that the ancients, not just us today, held great admiration and appreciation for ‘old’ history. For the Romans living around the time of Augustus Caesar, the palace of Knossos was some 2000 years old -a similar time distance that exists between us and the Romans of this era. Strabo (ca. 64 BC- 24 AD) was a Greek historian, traveller and geographer who moved to Rome. He wrote Geography, which is a bit like an ancient ‘Lonely Planet’ travel guide. Below is a segment from this, where he discusses Knossos (Book X, Chapter 4, translation via penelope.uchicago):

There are several cities in Crete, but the greatest and most famous are three: Cnossus [Knossos], Gortyna and Cydonia. The praises of Cnossus are hymned above the rest both by Homer, who calls it “great” and “the kingdom of Minos,” and by the later poets.

Cnossus is twenty-five stadia [an ancient Greek unit of measurement] from the northern sea […and] has Heracleium as its seaport. In earlier times Cnossus was called Caeratus, bearing the same name as the river which flows past it. According to history, Minos was an excellent law‑giver, and also the first to gain the mastery of the sea; and he divided the island into three parts and founded a city in each part, Cnossus in the [text missing]

Strabo was of course referencing Homer’s much earlier legendary work (written approx. 800 BC) the Odyssey: “One of the 90 towns is a great city called Knossos, an there, for 9 years, King Minos ruled, and enjoyed the friendship of almighty Zeus”.

99dog99:

it is so upsetting listening to so many males talk about all of the times they have gone on road trips alone and slept in their cars alone or on the side of the road, or travelled overseas alone and slept on the floor of strangers homes or in parks or at hostels, and they appear to have such freedom in that they are able to be alone in ways that females, unfortunately, cannot. and there is an ignorance surrounding this in that these boys never seem to comprehend just how fortunate they are that strange people and unfamiliar places and the dark of night are not their enemies but rather exciting, promising things.

“Yes, my consuming desire is to mingle with road crews, sailors and soldiers, barroom regulars—to be a part of a scene, anonymous, listening, recording—all this is spoiled by the fact that I am a girl, a female always supposedly in danger of assault and battery. My consuming interest in men and their lives is often misconstrued as a desire to seduce them, or as an invitation to intimacy. Yes, God, I want to talk to everybody as deeply as I can. I want to be able to sleep in an open field, to travel west, to walk freely at night…”

Some extremely intricate pin heads from Iran.

All are Luristan, made of bronze and date to about 1000-650 BC. The sharp needle section of the pins has not survived in most cases. The craftsmanship of these works is astonishing, especially given their tiny size.

booklover:

tai-korczak:

  1. Sonder: The realization that each passerby has a life as vivid and complex as your own.

  3. Monachopsis: The subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place.
  4. Énouement: The bittersweetness of having arrived in the future, seeing how things turn out, but not being able to tell your past self.
  5. Vellichor: The strange wistfulness of used bookshops.
  6. Rubatosis: The unsettling awareness of your own heartbeat.
  7. Kenopsia: The eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that is usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet.
  8. Mauerbauertraurigkeit: The inexplicable urge to push people away, even close friends who you really like.
  9. Jouska: A hypothetical conversation that you compulsively play out in your head.
  10. Chrysalism: The amniotic tranquility of being indoors during a thunderstorm.

  12. Anecdoche: A conversation in which everyone is talking, but nobody is listening
  13. Ellipsism: A sadness that you’ll never be able to know how history will turn out.
  14. Kuebiko: A state of exhaustion inspired by acts of senseless violence.
  15. Lachesism: The desire to be struck by disaster – to survive a plane crash, or to lose everything in a fire.

  21. Liberosis: The desire to care less about things.
