Hidden codex may reveal secrets of life in Mexico before Spanish conquest. One of the rarest manuscripts in the world has been revealed hidden beneath the pages of an equally rare but later Mexican codex, thanks to hi-tech imaging techniques.

Hidden codex may reveal secrets of life in Mexico before Spanish conquest

The Codex Selden, a book of concertina-folded pages made out of a five-metre strip of deerhide, is one of a handful of illustrated books of history and mythology that survived wholesale destruction by Spanish conquerors and missionaries in the 16th century. Researchers using hyperspectral imaging, a technique originally used for geological research and astrophysics, discovered the underlying images hidden beneath a layer of gesso, a plaster made from ground gypsum and chalk, without damaging the priceless later manuscript. The underlying images must be older than the codex on top, which is believed to have been made about 1560 and was donated to Oxford’s Bodleian library in the 17th century by the scholar and collector John Selden.

Life After the Bombs - Map: A Reign of Bombs

To break enemy supply lines and maintain control of the strategic Plain of Jars—endeavors that eventually failed—the U.S. and its allies flew hundreds of thousands of bombing sorties over Laos. Between 1964 and 1973 some two million tons of ordnance were dropped on Laos—up to 2,000 pounds for every Laotian man, woman, and child. The U.S. concentrated bombing on the highland plateau during its “secret war” against North Vietnamese and Laotian communists. North Vietnam’s supply line to South Vietnam threaded through the rugged Laotian border. Azincourt 1415 : d'où venaient les chevaliers français morts à la bataille ?

Based on photographs taken by Mike Ma of a map illustrating the chronology of the bloody week (May 21-28 1871) that eradicated the socialist Paris Commune.

Planisphère de Martellus - Une carte du 15e siècle révèle ses secrets. Medieval European Trade Map. Legendary Lands: Umberto Eco on the Greatest Maps of Imaginary Places and Why They Appeal to Us. By Maria Popova “Often the object of a desire, when desire is transformed into hope, becomes more real than reality itself.” Celebrated Italian novelist, philosopher, essayist, literary critic, and list-lover Umberto Eco has had a long fascination with the symbolic and the metaphorical, extending all the way back to his vintage semiotic children’s books.

Half a century later, he revisits the mesmerism of the metaphorical and the symbolic in The Book of Legendary Lands (public library) — an illustrated voyage into history’s greatest imaginary places, with all their fanciful inhabitants and odd customs, on scales as large as the mythic continent Atlantis and as small as the fictional location of Sherlock Holmes’s apartment.

Eco writes in the introduction: Map showing the Thames river with various docks... La traite négrière transatlantique résumée en une infographie de deux minutes. D'habitude, quand nous évoquons «l'esclavage américain» ou «la traite américaine des esclaves», nous faisons référence aux colonies américaines ou, plus tard, aux Etats-Unis.

Depuis le début de la traite, au XVIe siècle, jusqu'à sa fin, au XIXe siècle, les marchands d'esclaves ont transporté la plupart des Africains asservis à deux endroits: dans les Caraïbes et au Brésil. The Geography of Genius 1400 - 1950. By Frank Jacobs Genius follows its own law of gravity. It migrates in ever greater numbers to where it thrives. Hence places like Silicon Valley – and attempts to replicate it elsewhere, like London's Silicon Roundabout.

The phenomenon is older than the microchip, of course, as proven by these maps. Focusing on four creative disciplines, they chart the geography of genius in Europe and, over three consecutive periods (1400-1600, 1600-1800 and 1800-1950), the drastic changes to that geography. In the 15th and 16th century, three distinct areas emerged as the centres of creative genius. Histoire de l'Ecosse: de la chute de l'Empire Romain à l'émergence du royaume d'Alba.
