Egypt – An Adventurer’s Paradise

Cats played an important role in Ancient Egypt. From protectors of their grain, to pets, to deities, cats’ influence on Egyptian life was unmistakable. The popularity of Egyptian cats is reflected in the many Ancient Egyptian paintings and artifacts in which they appear.

Cuneiform tablets have also been the subject of 3D scanning to make studying them much easier. This is because the tablets are very sensitive and they cannot be handled all of the time. By creating a 3D image of the tablets, an individual or group can study them as often and for as long as they like. Many who study Orbes temporis will turn to 3D scanning so that they can have a virtual version of the item they are studying right in front of their faces. This is one of the reasons why the world has become more educated. A single 3D image can be replicated and many groups of people from anywhere in the world can study the images in order to enhance their understanding of something.

Case in point: My grandparents have owned a ranch in Northern California for the last 50 years, roughly, and the place is a cornucopia of living history. It could be a museum and practically is already. There’s old farming equipment still strewn about the property, long-dead cars parked here and there, Indian arrows and stones occasionally found in the farmland. The main ranch house itself is Victorian and dates to the 1890s. One of my earliest memories is of my mom and stepdad getting married there, and I doubt they could have picked a better spot in historical terms, both family and otherwise.

The Archaeological Museum of Split is recognized as Croatia’s oldest museum. It features some of the oldest Artifacts during the prehistoric times and even has objects dating back to when the Greeks colonized the Adriatic. One of the popular must-see objects here are the stone epitaph collections that was found in Salona, and you should also see its collection of Roman and Greek Artifacts.

It starts off with that you decide who starts, normally by rolling a die. Then both players picks up 7 cards. In the opening hand you need to check if you get one that is playable. You’ll normally need at least 2-3 lands on it for it to be playable but after a few games you’ll learn how to recognize this. If you aren’t satisfied with your hand you can draw 7 news cards. However, if you aren’t satisfied again you’ll have to draw one less card each time. So next time you’ll only get to draw 6 cards. This is so that you can’t sit there and just draw til you get the perfect hand. That would be obnoxious. If you at one point draw a full hand of just lands or just no lands you reveal that and then draw just as many cards more.

This grand museum is located in Zagreb, a major city in Croatia. What you are going to see here are works of art by famous artists such as Lorenzetti, Van Dyck, Renoir, and other famous artists. The collection of this museum is not limited to paintings alone, but it also features prehistoric exhibits.

And indeed, you can’t miss something as intriguing as a ‘Necropolis’ or, if translated, a City of the Dead. Here, you will find the less popular pyramids of Egypt, the step pyramids. However, though they are less popular than the great pyramids, they’re still suffused with great history and culture.
