I can't help but feel this is one of those things where we had actual documents saying "it was done with this and this", and some old rich white guys looked at it and went "oh mirth, the ancients were so silly They probably wrote this basic stuff down and the actual builders had Secret Techniques we need to Discover For a long time, archeologists didn't know how greek women did their high-piled braids and hair. There was a word that translated to "needle" in the descriptions. They went, "seems like we'll never know."

But swear to god, if all these years, we've had the recipes and there was just this fuckin institutional bias against just TRYING THE THING THEY SAID WOULD WORK, HELLFIRE AND DEMENTIA In this case, it was more they had roman writings saying what went into it but figured there was some secret because when they followed roman recipes it never turned out quite right. Because the sources left by Romans always just said to mix with water Because, if you were a Roman??? Obviouslyyou knew that you used seawater for cement. Duh. That's so obvious that they never really bothered specifying that you use seawater to mix it, because it wasn't necessary, everyone knew that. But then the empire fell, other empires rose and fell, time passed, and by the time we were trying to reconstruct the formula the 'mix the dry ingredients with seawater' trick had been forgotten, until chemical analysis finally figured it out again. It's sort of like the land of Punt, a ally of Egypt that's mentioned all the time, but we don't actually know where it was located. Because it isn't written down anywhere. Why would they write it down? It's Punt. Everyone knew where Punt was back then. It'd be ridiculous to waste the ink and space to specify where it was, every child knows about Punt. 3000 years later and we have no damned clue where it was, simply because at the time it was so blindingly obvious that it was never written down. So moral of storv is be specific I was thinking it was stupid that they didn't specify seawater but then I had the thought that we don't specify to use chicken eggs in baking because DUH so we write eggs 2000 years in the future people are going to be making scrambled fish eggs and crying be the ancient recipes make no sense I wonder what bits of todays common knowledge will be lost to time

Berlin had a thriving trans and gay community you have never heard of because the nazis destroyed it and the systematically erased evidence of it.

The story appeared in some national newspapers, including the News of the World (31 May 1936). The reportage was accurate and sensitive. In the words of L. R.

There is some debate on James Barry but I still think this is relevant. All of these taken from wikipedia timeline of LGBT history. (I had a look a few months ago out of curiosity.) also, the goddess Ishtar had trans priestesses known as the Assinnu (they castrated themselves, went by female pronouns, and wore female garb, and basically by any possible definition were trans women) and that’s WAY the fuck back in the BC’s  Like, I’m 45, and 1946 is before my parents were born. 71 years ago.

Anime, Shit, and Sorry: A marble bust of Caligula restored > to its original colours. The colours were identified from particles trapped in the marble. thescienceofjohnlock: ten-and-donna: themarysue: humansofcolor: prokopetz: sarahtypeswords: wetorturedsomefolks: memejacker: several-talking-corpses: memejacker: caligula had anime eyes wait romans painted their marble sculptures it looks like a cheap theme park ride mascot yep here’s a statue of Augustus and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored  i honestly think that what we consider the height of sculpture in all of Western civilization being essentially the leftover templates of gaudy pieces of theme park shit to be evidence of the potential merit of found art “I tried coloring it and then I ruined it” And you know what the funniest part is? The paint didn’t just wear off over time. A bunch of asshole British historians back in the Victorian era actually went around scrubbing the remaining paint off of Greek and Roman statues - often destroying the fine details of the carving in the process - because the bright colours didn’t fit the dignified image they wished to present of the the cultures they claimed to be heirs to. This process also removed visible evidence of the fact that at least some of the statues thus stripped of paint had originally depicted non-white individuals. Whenever you look at a Roman statue with a bare marble face, you’re looking at the face of imperialist historical revisionism. (The missing noses on a lot of Egyptian statues are a similar deal. It’s not that the ancient Egyptians made statues with strangely fragile noses. Many Victorian archaeologists had a habit of chipping the noses off of the statues they brought back, then claiming that they’d found them that way - because with the noses intact, it was too obvious that the statues were meant to depict individuals of black African descent.) Sorry, I keep reblogging this over and over, the last comment is unbelievable. Wow. WUT Knowledge bomb! Many more fig leaves in strategic places appeared thanks to the Victorians too.

and here’s a reproduction of the statue with the colors restored
