History Stuff.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I got a thread over at the HoT where I post intersting bits of history stuff I stumble across on Youtube. Not sure if any of this interests you, but I thought I might as well give it a try. See if you guys and gals like it. Here's little thing I found earlier today:

Is the flash function turned back on?

 

Ok, here's the link to the Youtube snippet:

This is awesome and the snippet works!!  Just click on the YouTube and you'll go to see it full size on YouTube.  I look forward to your history lessons friend!

 

btw, the HoT is my forum, the Hall of Torque.  We affectionately call it the HoT. :love:

Thank you for these links, @Odin - I've always been fascinated by Vikings, but I really don't know much about them.

 

This is one of my favorite documentaries.  I watch it every time it's on - weirdly, it's like a comfort show. :laugh:

Ah yes, the famous Viking sword. Glad you like it.

 

Here's another topic that interests me a lot. It's a lenghty documentary 100 minutes+

The guy has completely chosen to ignore the evidence put forward by Thor Heyerdal -- the cultlures in Egypt and South America had contact with each other. We see the oceans as obstacles but the truth is that to the ancient people they were highways.

A short snippet with a remarkable man. He might be best known for the tiger project where two young tigresses, known as Rani and Lillan, were brought up in the archipelago. The tigresses were meant to be released into the wild in India, but new restrictions prevented that and they ended up in Kolmården and Borås zoo. 

I doubt any of you knows who Jan Lindblad was - he died too early, in the suites of a tropical fever on Sri Lanka. Many sources claim he died in the suites of his diabetes, but that is not true. 

 

 

Here's a short snippet showing another of his talents. Have you ever heard anyone who can whistle like this:

 

And here is a full film by him:

I like watching this Italian's channel. Not only is he very knowlegeable about the Romans, but he also lived almost 4 years in Japan and studied their history. This time, though, he's looking at the 4 new characters from China in the game For Honor - how historically accurate are they.
