no one ever says that Rome needed help from aliens to build their empire

#l laughed for days when i found out that #ancient egyptians used water to reduce friction and move blocks for distances #and that this was literally DEPICTED ON THEIR HIEROGLYPHICS #but ~western archaeologists~ #thought that the pouring of water depicted ~superstitious rituals~ #jfc

British Museum to display Robben Island copy of Shakespeare's works

historical-nonfiction:

A copy of the Complete Works of Shakespeare, known as the Robben Island Bible, was used by apartheid-era ANC prisoners including Nelson Mandela. It was passed from cell to cell and read in secret. The books owner originally passed it around to collect signatures, to remember his time in prison. He asked all the leading prisoners to sign next to their favorite passages.

Beside the passage in Julius Caesar beginning, “Cowards die many times before their deaths” is Mandela’s signature and the date, December 16 1977.
