The Roman Roads of Gaul Visualized as a Modern Subway Map

At a casual glance, some travelers may take the map above for a depiction of France’s enviable intercity high-speed rail network Train à Grande Vitesse, better known as TGV. In reality, its content predates that system’s inauguration in the early 1980s — and by nearly two millennia at that. This is in fact a map of Gaul, a region of Europe that, most broadly defined, included modern-day France, Luxembourg, and Belgium, as well as parts of Switzerland, Italy, the Netherlands, and Germany. Ruled ...

Reissued Asterix Comics Have An Ugly-Racial-Stereotype Problem

A series of collected strips, in a new English translation, about the funny little Gaul and his fellows resisting the Romans is now being released in the U.S. That’s bringing new attention to an old problem: the way the original artist in the 1960s depicted African slaves. The U.S. publisher wanted to change the drawings, but the rights holder, Hachette France, refused to allow anything but minor cosmetic alterations. – Publishers Weekly

The periodic table also is a map – well, kind of

Twenty-eight of the 118 elements on the periodic table were named after places on the map.Tennessee, California, and two towns in the Golden State got their own elements.But nobody beats Ytterby, a small Swedish town that gave its name to four different elements. Curious Curies I made it through high school with barely a glance at the periodic table. Chemistry – urgh. I preferred geography, obviously. However, had I known that so many elements are named after places on the map, perhaps I wouldn...

California’s Zero-Bail Order Results In Multiple People Being Re-Arrested Within Days Of Release

What History Has Taught Us: When A Crisis Passes, Emergency Measures Often Stay Intact

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. In times of crisis, it’s natural for people to look for decisive action from their leaders. Another natural response to a crisis is to do whatever it takes to solve it and prevent something similar from occurring in the future. When thousands of people are dying and hospitals are taxed to their limits, it’s natural for leaders and citizens to become extraordinarily risk averse and look for the strongest possible measure...

Agency Brief: get into the weeds of the latest wins, hires and acquisitions

Judging by the dozens of cannabis pitches I receive weekly, weed—which is increasingly gaining recreational legal status across the U.S., despite the hundreds of thousands of people who continue to be arrested for it every year—is ripe for advertising opportunities. Here’s one standout cannabis campaign. Charlotte’s Web—a CBD health and wellness brand that makes oils, gummies, capsules and even products for dogs—unveils its new out-of-home campaign this week.

Who Wants This War with Iran?

Who Wants This War with Iran? U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Speaking on state TV of the prospect of a war in the Gulf, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei seemed to dismiss the idea. “There won't be any war. … We don't seek a war, and (the Americans) don't either. They know it's not in their interests.” The ayatollah's analysis — war is in neither nation's interest — is correct. Consider the consequences of a war with the United States for his own country. Iran's hundreds of swift boats and h...

Saint Patrick Was a Dog Man

Saint Patrick's D ay is on Sunday. Saint Patrick  was actually a Roman by the name of Maewyn Succat, born in 387 AD in either Kilpatrick, Scotland or Banwen, Wales.  At the age of 16 Maewyn was captured by Irish raiders and sold as a slave to the Irish chieftan Milchu of Dalriada.   For the next six years Maewyn tended his Irish slave master's sheep and pigs in the Braid valley of Ireland, where he worked the dogs and learned the Celtic language.

History’s Heroic Failures

I like to keep you up to date when I read a book I think is worth your time. I’m now reading Marc Morris’s The Norman Conquest, which is very good. I recommend it. At the simplest level it’s just a good read on a subject of immense historical importance and one with sufficient drama to allow a good writer to keep the reader engaged. But what I really like about it is how Morris approaches a comparatively ancient period with the uncertainty of our knowledge not simply addressed or hinted at but m...

Decapitated Skeletons, with Heads Between Their Legs, Unearthed in Roman Cemetery

The discovery of a Roman cemetery in England has archaeologists scratching their heads, mainly because about 40 percent of the bodies buried there are missing theirs. Well, not missing, exactly. Of the 52 skeletons discovered in the fourth-century A.D. cemetery, 17 had been decapitated. And almost every head was resting between its owner's legs or feet. It's unclear why these decapitations happened, but "this appears to be a careful funeral rite that may be associated with a particula...
