A Quinta da Fórnea é um conjunto de ruínas romanas que remonta o século II. Localizada entre Belmonte e Caria, foi descoberta recentemente aquando da construção da A23 em 1999. As escavações revelaram várias peças romanas, pelo que se supõe, ter sido uma propriedade habitada por uma família e criados. Esta estava construída com várias divisões, algumas delas ainda bem definidas, lagar de azeite, vinho, transformação de cereais, fundição de ferro, estábulos para animais. Todo o núcleo estava ligado por um sistema de caleiras que permitiria o abastecimento e circulação de água. Foram também colocadas a descoberto umas termas, com os tradicionais tanques, que permitiriam banhos de diferentes temperaturas (frigidarium, tepidarium, caldarium), um deles apresentando paredes com mais de 1,50 metros de altura, com vestígios de escadas e revestido a opus signinum. Além dos tanques, descobriram-se também vestígios do hipocausto e apoditerium que completariam o equipamento de umas termas. Foram também descobertos vários compartimentos, provavelmente relacionados com a habitação dos proprietários e dos seus dependentes. Todas estas estruturas, assim como a zona da entrada da villa e todos os espaços vazios que estariam ocupados com colunas e espaços ajardinados, comprovam a grandeza e riqueza dos seus proprietários.

‘We are facing collapse on multiple levels, but the good news is that the crises we face are interconnected – they share a root cause, and there is a systemic strategy for beginning to solve them simultaneously. This book is an example of the kind of ‘big picture activism’ we need in order to get people to zoom out, see their commonalities with unlikely allies, and unite voices for a fundamental shift in direction. We have the opportunity to create a people’s movement; a coalition like never before. I agree with Rupert and Samuel that the end of civilisation as we know it gives us an opportunity to create the conditions for both human and ecological well-being. They are among the rare academics who have the courage to go beyond the confines of narrow specialisation to speak out, to question the dominant narrative.’ – Helena Norberg-Hodge, author of Ancient Futures and founder of Local Futures. 'This Civilisation is Finished: Conversations on the end of Empire - and what lies beyond' is an incredible new book co-authored by Samuel Alexander and Rupert Read (leading spokesperson of the Extinction Rebellion in the UK). It includes a postscript by Local Futures founder Helena Norberg-Hodge. Available as a paperback via fishpond.au.com. Available as a PDF (pay what you can) here - http://bit.ly/2IqwT6C.

(accidentally lost post) Angkor Watt Series: Angkor, in Cambodia’s northern province of Siem Reap, is one of the most important archaeological sites of Southeast Asia. It extends over approximately 400 square kilometres and consists of scores of temples, hydraulic structures (basins, dykes, reservoirs, canals) as well as communication routes. For several centuries Angkor, was the centre of the Khmer Kingdom. With impressive monuments, several different ancient urban plans and large water reservoirs, the site is a unique concentration of features testifying to an exceptional civilization. Temples such as Angkor Wat, the Bayon, Preah Khan and Ta Prohm, exemplars of Khmer architecture, are closely linked to their geographical context as well as being imbued with symbolic significance. The architecture and layout of the successive capitals bear witness to a high level of social order and ranking within the Khmer Empire. Angkor is therefore a major site exemplifying cultural, religious and symbolic values, as well as containing high architectural, archaeological and artistic significance. #hasselblad #photography #architecture #archeology #megalithic #analog #120mm #6x6 #culture #history #temple #buddism #hinduism #khmer #cambodia #travel #vishnu #jungle #craft #art #structure #world #earth #civilisation #love #architecture

Justine (28), deputy director of Marseille’s museum of natural history: ''To me, freedom means being able to change your mind at any time. A moment of fulfilment in which you feel you’re living like a human being, being content to have a choice. When I feel free, I’m quite conscious of feeling my body in space, how I’m going to alter the equilibrium of my surroundings in a fraction of a second. Where am I going to go? How am I going to get there? Nobody knows that or needs to know that, not even me. When I go to work at the museum, I leave my family members and friends, in other words I’m far away from my family, but I put myself to the test as a human being, acting on the convictions that I’m proud of. Marseille represents a fresh start, a sort of clean slate: the city is a challenge. Freedom means taking responsibility for moments of regret. Freedom is the luxury of surprising and impressing yourself and others.” #marseille #freiraum #documentary #photography #mucem #society #culture #arts #evolution #civilisation #cities #france #assignment #goethe #reflexion #thoughtsprocess #nature #sea #streetphotography #streetphotgraphyinternational #community #euromed #documentaryphotography #canon #35mm #travelphotography #SPiCollective #architecture #streets_storytelling

When one is surrounded by those who share similar ideas about the way things ought to be and the way we ought to live, it is not difficult to fall into the pattern of having just another neat thought to tinker with in your head. It is important not to let yourself fall into the pattern of mere tinkering and mere talk. What is the purpose of tinkering without using the tool? Don’t get me wrong - theory and discussion are vital elements of this type of living and the thought that comes with it. Just don’t let this online engagement replace the more important part, that being action. When we say that [insert something demonstrably unjust] is unjust, unfit for a good life, wrong, etc., do not simply say “I agree!” and satiate yourself off of that agreement. Do not stop there and do not let yourself become satiated. I’m not saying “reading things is bad,” obviously, I’m saying that it is not enough. Do not just read - read, get others to read, and do whatever is realistic and more, if possible, in accordance with what you’ve read. Channel whatever emotions you feel into any defiance or any aid that you can. Spend time in Nature, learn what kind of plants you can use/consume in your locality, practice illegalism in the ways most accessible and realistic to you. Don’t live vicariously. Whenever possible, run and be untamable. We’re all vulnerable to this and I want to keep this in mind mainly for myself especially as I start this page. • • • #antitech #anticiv #technology #civilization #primitivism #fuckwork #communism #anarchism #acab #civilisation #luddite #nature #natural #writing #egoism #egoist

M A C H U P I C C H U - Rise & Shine! We started our day just as the sun was peeking over the mountains. It has been a dream of mine to visit Machu Picchu and it totally lived up to the hype. After spending the morning with our #intisuntrek guide we were free to explore and admire the site ourselves, and in my case, tackle Huayna Picchu - that small mountain that sits behind Machu Picchu 😳 It was definitely one of the best days of our trip so far. #machupicchu #peru #southamerica #inca #civilisation #huaynapicchu #imadeit

From the plantation to our plates, it took a lot to make them grow. Patience, Energy, Faith, Hope, Trust, Love, Labor, Power, Culture, Heritage, Family, Tradition and more and more. Thats why it's must to thank life and the people who works hard in the plantation when there's the possibility for you, family, friends and entourage to eat or use any products from a plantation. #culture #plantation #plant #nature #humanrace #vegetation #cultivation #water #sun #food #life #environment #civilisation #plantain

On #civilisation : it's hard to critique civilisation, it just is and seems like the way to be. It appears to have a positive meaning, as in civilisation vs some primitive, crude, "wild", uncivilised state of being. But see this from Perlman: "What’s left is Civilization, something very different from culture. Civilization is a humanly meaningless web of unnatural constraints, it is the organization of repression within the entrails of Leviathan. Civilization is the “culture” of a Leviathan’s springs and wheels. And Europeans know that their states are not communities, their laws for the maintenance of civility are not a culture, and their imposed tasks are not ways of free human beings, even if they name the tasks “callings.”" It's very thought-provoking even if your own thoughts deviate dramatically from what he writes. The quote above is from his book Against His-Story, Against Leviathan. #anarchism #culture #nature

Those pyramids from the pre-inca civilisations look like they are a natural part of the landscape. Built by the Lambayaque, then re-used by the Chimu then Inca civilizations for religious and social purposes, the 26 pyramids of the Tucume site (northen Peru) have then been worn off by time and erosion... making it an enigmatic and surprising place to wander around and discover... Fortunately a museum next to the entrance of the site gives a bit more insight of the history of the place and its inhabitants... . . . #peru #tucume #lambayeque #civilization #history #culture #inca #pyramid #civilisation #histoire #pérou #ameriquedusud #southamerica #visitsouthamerica #travelsouthamerica #travel #visit #discover #explore #religious #cultural #social #site #ancient #surprising #traveling #placesoftheworld #travelandexplore #offpath #lesvoyagesdalexela.com

Nature is all around us... Living in our shadows, but playing an essential role in our existence. We have ignored the environment for too long, without it, we would be no more then fantasy... Today, it is essential that we think of ways to build back a stronger environment as it is the building blocks for a resilient civilisation... We mustn't wait a day longer to act. Time is running out, and we are losing hope - we have the possibility to change let's use it for good, and not for the evils that have plagued the world... #environment #climatechange #climateaction #climateemergency #environmentalcrisis #climatejustice #human #greed #ego #weareone #natureportrait #nature #naturephotography #plantlife #plants #botanical #garden #actnow #act #civilisation #waitnolonger #wednesdaywisdom #photography #macro #nikon #nikond7500 #everydayactivism #voiceforfuture #voicefortheplanet

🇨🇳🇺🇸🇵🇰 Twinning on set ! One of the most fascinating things about moderating is the diverse range of people you get to meet. Each, adding a token to your own personality- providing new perspective. Was a great pleasure to meet Ryan Napierski, President of the American Direct Selling Association. Ryan left 🇺🇸 at the age of 19- to learn about different cultures. He lived in South Korea, Germany, and various countries along the Ancient Silk Road. The biggest take-away of this journey was “each culture/ nation is at the center of the universe” and all perspectives are subjective. Mutual respect, and allowing differences is key to harmony. It is always great to meet people who can see through the hypocrisy of forced conversions, democratisations, regime changes and so on. And especially someone who can respect all cultures equally. 🙌🏼 . . . . . #NuSkin #Asia #Eurasia #Europe #SilkRoad #Culture #Harmony #Beijing #TV #host #BRI #beltandroad #China #Beijing #USA #Germany #Japan @nuskin #Business #Fashion #Media #Thoughtgram #Harmony #Beauty #Blue #SkinCare #Wellness #Pakistan #TalkShow #Civilisation

Is anyone watching this on BBC iPlayer? Didn’t catch it first time round (I’d like to think I was too young...) but I’m hooked on the way the camera lingers over detailed stone carvings, Viking longboats, elaborately gilded crosses etc. And I love Kenneth Clark’s assumption that I’m listening to every single word he’s saying so there’s no maddening repetition, and have I mentioned the wonderful sound track? #kennethclark #kennethclarkcivilisation #civilisation #bbciplayer #historyofartfeed #historyofart #historyofartdaily #arthistoryfeed #bbccivilisation #artschool #requiredviewing #royalacademyguide

"Mi živimo u vremenu tehničkih otkrića bez presedana, koja vode sve potpunijem ovladavanju silama prirode i neutralisanju vremena i prostora. Ali ovaj razvoj, iako doprinosi našem komforu, udobnosti i sigurnosti života, ne ide u pravcu istinske kulture i prosvetljenja. Sasvim suprotno, on je destruktivan za IDEALE... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stvaran uzrok propasti naroda je nesposobnost čovečanstva da reši SOCIJALNE, MORALNE i DUHOVNE probleme. Sve dok je borba za egzistenciju takva da samo najprilagođeniji mogu da prežive, postoji zdrav razvoj vladavine individualizma. Kada se mehanizmi reakcije eliminišu iz individue, originalni napor i inicijativa suzbiju, a kreativne sposobnosti naruše, rasa postepeno tone u divljaštvo i nestaje. Sličan kraj preti našoj današnjoj civilizaciji." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ — NIKOLA TESLA #nikolatesla #tesla #otkrice #technology #priroda #forcesofnature #vreme #time #space #prostor #razvoj #development #kultura #culture #prosvetljenje #enlightenment #ideal #ideali #ideals #spirit #duh #individuality #originality #effort #creativity #kreativnost #civilizacija #civilisation #malomestazakulturu

This competition was held in 3 phases. The first phase required the teams to submit architectural renderings. The second phase required the teams to create structural components and focused on material technologies. The third phase was the on-site habitat competition with 3 construction levels and 2 virtual levels.
