The Kyz Kala fortress of ancient Merv (Turkmenistan), a Silk Roads oasis city in Central Asia. The site is comprised of several cities built across many centuries, the earliest of which date back to around the 7th century BC. Merv has along and colorful history, having served as an important trade center and was subjugated by numerous empires. In 1221, the city was conquered by Genghis Khan, and as many as 1 million residents were slaughtered in just a few days. The city changed hands many times over the next several centuries, being occupied by both Christians and Muslims. It’s strategic location was still recognized in the 19th century, when Russia occupied it as a springboard into Afghanistan and, allegedly, British India. In my novel, “Chaturanga,” readers learn more about this fascinating place through the eye of 14-year-old Patrick Eaton.

#Secret #tunnels , #railroad #tunnels and the castle-like #architecture that surrounds many of them... #Maps of the 1600s that show #ancient #ruins that have been #coveredup and many of these locations have a #legend or #ghoststory that comes with it... #Mainstream says that within a span of about 50-75 years in the 1800s, starting at about 1830...before #electricity , before power tools, before cars and trucks were just horses and buggy’s, sweat and tears.. Do you really #think that #mankind was able to construct some of these images I’m about to show you? Also worldwide? 🤔 All of the highly skilled, stunning architecture was done before if you’d ask me and all of these amazing #buildings just magically burned down? 😐 Our #history has been #erased , #reset and mainstreams reports don’t add up or make any sense. This was only about a century ago and look at where we are in #modern society: Instead of building huge, solid, #decorative and #artistic architecture, we build dollar stores and Starbucks... instead of families staying close and parents teaching their kids useful #skills like #home economics, #growing food/farming and making/building things, the current #slave #economy takes kids from their parents so parents can work for the corporations, get divorced and everyone is herded into things like sports, #entertainment and out of control materialism. Children and the elderly are put into institutions. Our #future is not headed into the right direction. Which will take me to my next post- Future Earth. To be continued... #rabbithole #rant

The Matronae (latin word for "matrons") were female deities depicted on votive offerings and altars  almost entirely in groups of three, and were venerated in regions of Germania, eastern Gaul, and northern Italy  occupied by the roman army from the first to the fifth century.The ones displayed here were part of a sanctuary situated in the roman settlement of Marcomagus (nowadays Nettersheim) right at the beginning of the Agrippa’s road connecting Cologne with Trier. #romanroad #ruins #romanhistory #matron #history #cologne #römisch #geschichte #deity #romanity #ruinen #römischesreich #trier #romans #romanarts #romain
