What did the Egyptians think of Cleopatra?

In his book “Egyptology: The Missing Millenium”, Okasha el Daly claims that hieroglyphics were decoded several 100 years before Champollion by scholars during the height of the Islamic empire.  There was a great interest in retrieving "lost knowledge” and they translated every piece of papyrus they could get their hands on.

Natural rock formations or man made?

Next to the road I work on constructing in FYR of Macedonia i found this formation in bushes. Could this be man made? This orange rock looks kind of out of place, it is around one meter high.
Other rocks are not very well visible because of dense bushes, but are also connected with cement like materials, I could notice that much.

Rituals and Symbols

Hello and welcome to this topic, I will introduse myself first: my name is Sergiu Toderita, curently residing in Canada and very courious about the misteries that rituals hold and what they have done to us in past, do and will affect our lifes in future. 

The topic begins very intersting but the problem is that It is hard for me to find and learn of rituals as I have no idea or to start.

This forum is not to discuss but to guide me an me alike that are intersted. 

What was and what is currently the best method to preserve Historic facts from being erased, edited and preserved?

From what I am aware in the past the best way to preserve Historic events and facts would have been most probably information carved into stone, monuments and if lucky word of mouth. Followed by the written word.  Were there any other ways to preserve historic fact and ensure authenticity and protection from alteration from third parties?

While in the current day and age I would say the new ways to preserve current facts should be included internet repositories (online and offline), hard drives and probably blockchain project such as Historia.network and Everipedia.org. 

Bronze sword

Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and I'm wondering if there are any bronze sword specialists on here who can help me out. I bought this sword around 20 years ago from eBay with a Christie's certificate of authenticity. Some years later why I was working away my 5 year old son thought it would be a good idea to take it outside and play sword fights with his friends. At some point I had realized it was missing on asking my wife where it had gone!!
