Château de Monte-Cristo in Port-Marly, Yvelines, France 🇫🇷 The charming home of Alexandre Dumas, author of The Three Musketeers and The Count of Monte Cristo. The story of the castle begins with the success of both of Dumas’ novels. At the height of his fame and seeking a peaceful place to continue his writing and escape the chaos of city life, Dumas acquired a vineyard 20km to the west of Paris. In 1846, Dumas prepared plans for his future home with the help of notable architect Hippolyte Durand, who had renovated the Basilique Saint-Rémi in Reims. Dumas’ plans for the estate included a Renaissance château, a miniature Gothic castle, and gardens featuring waterfalls, ornamental rocks, and grottos. On the 25th of July 1847, he organized a party for his friends and admirers and moved into his tiny earthly paradise, as Dumas referred to the estate. Monte-Cristo is a reflection of Dumas’ imagination. The castle has sculpted facades on every side and is decorated with cherubs, flowers, and musical instruments, symbolizing the arts. The windows on the ground floor are decorated with medallions of the greatest authors of all time, while on the pediment above the entrance, the family coat of arms is carved with Dumas’ personal motto: “I love those who love me.” Caption: Walls with Stories #chateau #paris #france #architecture #history #alexandredumas #threemusketeers #countofmontecristo #historichomes

Australian soldiers in Vietnam 1966, Nui Dat, Phuoc Tuy Province - A wave of dysentery among the ranks of RAAF door gunners caused the members of the No 9 Iroquois Squadron, RAAF, based at Vung Tau, to accept the services of US Army helicopter door gunners who had volunteered for any missions in the Iroquois. Members of the 765th Security Platoon checked in daily to see if their services could be used within the Squadron. Left to right, two US Army door gunners from No 765th Security Platoon, Vung Tau, Private (Pte) Virgil John of California and Pte Walter Gorzynski of Colorado, talk to RAAF Iroquois pilot 37576 Flight Lieutenant (Flt Lt) Robert Andrew (Bob) MacIntosh, of Ainslie, ACT. #usarmy #usnavy #usmc #usairforce #vietnamwar #usvietnam #history #vietnamveteran #m60 #doorgunner #usarv

This wool carding bench was picked out of an old barn near Disley, SK. It was made by one of the early settlers to Saskachewan. They were a family that came to Canada from Prussia in the very early 1900s. It has one leg made out of an actual tree. It's beautiful and sturdy. #saskatchewan #ourfirstsettlers #history #woolcarding #woolcardingbench

Fun fact my favorite topic in school was ACTUALLY history 📚📝! So when learning about the French Revolution I got so excited when my high school teacher referred to Marie Antoinette as a “little fast” when it comes to men with conspicuous behavior and rumors of her scandals nights of men. It’s no wonder I wanted to visit such place. My favorite quote for Marie her self is; “Courage! I have shown it for years; think you I shall lose it at the moment when my sufferings are to end?” But with all the jokes a side I absolutely fell in love with Palace of Versailles. With its 700 rooms, more than 2,000 windows, 1,250 chimneys, and 67 staircases And it’s now worth $57.0 Billion dollars. #paris #palaceofversailles #palace #gold #frenchrevolution #marieantoinette #history #landmark #tourist #tour #mustsee #france #hopper #airbnb #fff #l4l #instagood

The Taj Mahal in India during WWII. It used a unique form of scaffolding to stay safe as an international landmark. _ During WWII, the threat of a Japanese attack on the British Raj was a very real possibility. It contained abundant natural resources, a large population and was a center of trade. In fact, an attack did occur but was repelled. _ As an important part of Indian heritage, the Taj Mahal was a possible target during the Japanese bombing runs. It was protected with bamboo scaffolding to camouflage it from attack. This was successful as the Taj Mahal was not harmed during the war. The same tactic was employed during the 1971 Indian-Pakistani War, which was also successful. _ #wwii #ww2 #worldwar2 #worldwarii #worldwartwo #India #Pakistan #tajmahal #Japan #camouflage #war #combat #history

Follow: (@mr.darkweb) for more content, tag a friend, and comment down your thoughts. ▪️ The development of nuclear artillery was part of a broad push by nuclear weapons countries to develop nuclear weapons which could be used tactically against enemy armies in the field (as opposed to strategic uses against cities, military bases, and heavy industry). Nuclear artillery was both developed and deployed by a small group of states, including the United States, USSR, and France. On May 25, 1953 at 8:30am, the Atomic Annie cannon was tested at the Nevada Test Site (specifically Frenchman Flat) as part of the Upshot-Knothole series of nuclear tests. The test was codenamed “Grable” – because the letter Grable is phonetic for G, as in “gun”, since the warhead was a gun-type fission weapon. The detonation of Grable occurred 19 seconds after its firing. It detonated over 6.25 mi (over 10 km) away from the gun it was fired from. The explosion was an air burst of 160 m (524 ft) above the ground, 26 m (87 ft) west and 41 m (136 ft) south of its target (slightly uprange). Its yield was estimated at 15 kilotons, around the same level as Little Boy. An anomalous feature of the blast was the formation of a precursor, a second shock front ahead of the incident wave. This precursor was formed when the shock wave reflected off the ground and surpassed the incident wave and Mach stem due to a heated ground air layer and the low burst height. It resulted in a lower overpressure, but higher overall dynamic pressure, which inflicted much more damage on drag sensitive targets such as jeeps and personnel carriers. The test remains the only nuclear artillery shell ever actually fired in the U.S. nuclear weapons test program. About 3,200 soldiers and civilians were present. ▪️ #horror #horrorfan #horrormovies #spooky #creepy #creepypasta #deepweb #murder #murderer #mystery #unknown #scary #evil #death #shocking #twd #zombies #aliens #paranormal #scarystories #unknown #horrorstory #horrorstories #conspiracy #conspiracytheories #creepystories #history #horrifying #instahorror #disturbing

Girl you are tripping if you think the original Egyptians were white/black. They were Mediterranean. Mummies have been uncovered and their data has been studied to show that they are in fact from Mediterranean roots. Many people like to mix this up with the Nubians, who invaded Egypt later on. Don’t mix it up. People also forget one thing. EGYPTIANS CAN BE RACIST TOWARDS BLACK PEOPLE. WHICH IS PRETTY DISRESPECTFUL. THATS ALSO WHY EGYPTIANS DONT GET TO SAY THE N WORD. BECAUSE WE HAVE TAN OLIVE SKIN COMPLEXION. I have so many sources to back my claim up. Have a good night legends 😂💅🏼☺️ #michaeljackson #michael #badtour #victorytour #pop #music #legends #love #shamone #moonwalk #parisjackson #princejackson #jacksons #jackson5 #80s #talent #legacy #history #invincible #thriller #offthewall #bad #latoya #janetjackson #moonwalker #prince #legendary #egyptian

Over 1,200 in the Beinhaus (bone house) in Hallstat. All painted skulls and pretty remarkable history. - Today, the Hallstatt collection of painted skulls is also a treasure trove for anthropologists who study heritability of cranial traits (i.e. Torsten Sjoevold, Neus Martinez Abadias). The skulls are accompanied by fairly complete records of births, deaths and marriages dating back to the 17th century and kept by the Catholic Church. - #austria #hallstatt #history #travel #worldtravel #skulls #church #betterauff #catholic

We met a cowgirl in Utah, a real bad ass. She was guiding the cows of her ranch to the Sierra for the summer so the cows could  get a little water up there and food for the season. Hiking through the canyons we saw all the amazing cows climbing hills, we never expected them to climb. Since this happens only once a year we were really lucky to enjoy this an amazing moment! ------------ Nous avons rencontré une cowgirl dans notre voyage en Utah! Elle guidait les vaches de son Ranch jusqu'à la sierra des montagnes pour l'été et que les vaches puissent avoir un peu d'eau et de la nourriture pour la saison. En marchant à travers les canyons, on voyait les vaches monter à travers des collines qui semblaient beaucoup trop abruptes pour elles. Puisque cet évènement se produit une fois par année, nous étions très chanceux d'en être témoins et de partager ce moment tous ensemble!

As well as delivering the William Ritchie Memorial Lecture, Professor Goldhill will also be participating in the “Theatre and Autocracy in the Ancient World” conference. This conference (and the associated ARC Discovery Project) will constitute the first systematic exploration of the historical circumstances and means by which autocrats transformed the ancient theatre from a medium of mass communication into an instrument of mass control.
