Our pocket door was jammed and turns out this 103 year old grammar guide was shoved in the wall. #archaeology

Love is everywhere! This is a multi-use biface or knife tool made from Swan River Chert. It's from the Mollberg site in central Saskatchewan, and collections from this site have shown it was actively used for at least 7,000 years. This tool would have been used for scraping hides, cutting meat, or for any other purpose for which we use knives today. The heart shape was most likely not intentional though, but rather resulted from a fracture of the stone during manufacture of this tool. . . . #archaeology #exploresask #museumcollection #museumsmatter

In the early 20th century, Harvard archaeologist George Reisner discovered dozens of pyramids and temples in Sudan. But with unquestioning condescension, he — like many of his contemporaries — attributed any sophisticated architecture to a light-skinned race.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ From this month’s Case Study (link in bio, “In Sudan, Rediscovering Ancient Nubia Before It’s Too Late”) /// Image via Wikimedia. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #sudan #history #archaeology #nubia #racism #pyramids #colonialism

This morning we caught the 6am bus from Playa Del Carmen to see the Mayan ruins in Tulum. It opens at 8am(we were there by 7.30am) and they were expecting 12,000 people to visit today. The masses of people walking past us after we were finished with our guide made us 🤜🏻🤛🏽 😌 ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ ▫️ #tulum #mexico #mayanruins #chocolate #history #upearly #avoidtherush #bestofmexico #instaday #tourists #archaeology #ruins #mayanworld #travel #flyawaywithme

One of the few people (read Oliver and Ryan) to excavate a road stone in Virginia. #archaeology #roadstone

If you've ever visited the Colosseum and Arch of Constantine you'll agree they are pretty impressive. Now imagine seeing what they looked like when they were first built almost 2,000 years ago.

I don’t think I should hashtag my university #archaeology

One ☝️ day I'll be the one zipping down the watery lanes of Venice in that boat 🚣. This place is like a dream, though it turns out it might have been founded by people fleeing northern towns during the Roman age when the Germanic tribes had begun invading the area. So much of its history is tied to renaissance that it's easy to forget this is an ancient and mysterious urban archipelago. - - - - - - - - - #history#archaeology#venice#italy #europe #instagood#photooftheday #picoftheday#iphoneonly #backpacker #culture #adventure #wanderlust #instatravel #city #scenery #photography #photographer #travel #travelgram #travelling #water #boat #wanderer

I hope people are realizing now that there’s a difference between the apsaras and the devatas... I’m trying to get the message across that there’s a difference between the two... The above is a pediment from the hall of dancers at the Ta Prohm temple, unfortunately the central devata or prajnaparamita has lost her face, it was looted. • In Cambodia they call every female figure portrayed on the temple walls an apsara. This is incorrect. Once you start exploring the temples for yourself you will discover that there’s two main types of female figures represented... the smaller one’s who are dancing and the larger one’s who are standing stationary... they are not the same. • Question your tour guides and teach them when they get it wrong. • Archaeologists and scholars who were studying ancient Khmer ruins and art in the late 19th and early 20th century also noticed these differences, so in their writings they made a distinction between the two. There is also another type of female figure, the Yoginis, but I’m not going to get into that now. • When you visit the Angkor Wat temple you will most probably see the large bas-relief portraying the famous Hindu mythological story - Samudra manthana - also called the churning of the ocean of milk. Above the scene there are hundreds of apsaras flying in the air holding garlands of flowers... those are true apsaras and notice how they are portrayed... the apsaras and many other creatures were born during this process of churning the ocean... • • • #apsara #devata #mythology #khmer #khmerart #siemreap #cambodia #angkor #angkorwat #arthistory #art #artwork #artgallery #ancienthistory #instaart #angkortemples #wanderlust #archaeology #asianart #natgeo #lonelyplanet #ancient #ancientruins #explore #travelphotography #unesco #culture #sculpture #taprohm #arthistorian

St. Kevin's church lies in the stunning glacial valley of Glendalough lying in Wicklow Mountains National Park. Founded by St. Kevin in the 6th century, the monostary served as an important scholastic centers and survived several viking attacks until it was destroyed in 1214 ad by Normans. Most of the buildings date from the 10th to 12 the centuries, but many are well preserved and include the round tower and St. Mary's church. - - - - - #church#history #archaeology#picoftheday #travel #travelingram #backpacker #scenery #wanderlust #wonderful#roamtheplanet#travelphotography#travelbug #ilovetravel #traveller #travellife #travels #traveldiaries #journal
