GO DO YOUR HOMEWORK

I AM DOING MY HOMEWORK I HAVE IT OPEN IN THE BACKGROUND AND EVERYTHING

I’M TRYING TO DISMANTLE ESTABLISHED THEORIES ABOUT THE COLLAPSE OF MYCENAEAN GREECE AND IT’S HURTING MY BRAIN

#those theories being that it was primarily caused by invasion and that it was primarily caused by drought/famine #there isn’t sufficient evidence that there was actually an ”invasion” per se as opposed to expansion in the north and raiders from the sou #south (neither of which is actually invasion) #and either way the main evidence for invasion has since been theorised to actually be native greek weaponry rather than foreign #and as to famine/drought there’s no way to pinpoint that it actually preceded the collapse only that it happened around the same time#either way neither of those things would have had the impact necessary to bring down a civilisation if that civilisation didn’t also have in #internal problems which is actually my entire argument #there i’ve just summed up my research paper now i have to expand it to tEN PAGES #SHOOT ME NOW

Hello, followers, this is how my day is going!

Ancient Thracian gold hoard unearthed in Bulgaria

SOFIA (Reuters) - Bulgarian archaeologists unearthed ancient golden artifacts, including bracelets with snake heads, a tiara with animal motifs and a horse head piece during excavation works at a Thracian tomb in northern Bulgaria, they said on Thursday.
The new golden artifacts are dated back to the end of the fourth or the beginning of the third century BC and were found in the biggest of 150 ancient tombs of a Thracian tribe, the Getae, that was in contact with the Hellenistic world.

“It is not precise to call Hatshepsut a queen, despite the English understanding of the word; once she took the throne, Hatshepsut could only be called a king. In the ancient Egyptian language, the word queen only existed in relation to a man, as the “king’s woman.” Once crowned, Hatshepsut served no man.”

We’ve got a brand-new essay on the kick-ass, cross-dressing Egyptian ruler Hatshepsut. Just don’t call her a queen.
