Throughout the world different systems have been used to mark the passage of time, but it has been common for cultures to count the passing of years from a specific event in their past. For example, the ancient Greeks counted years from the first Olympic Games (which correlates to 776 B.C. ), while the Romans based their calendar on the founding year of Rome (traditionally 753 B.C. ). The Jewish calendar starts from their idea of when the world was created (3760 B.C. ), while the Muslim calendar begins with the Hijra, the migration of the Prophet Muhammad from Mecca to Medina in A.D. 622. A monk called Dionysius Exiguus (early sixth century A.D. ) invented the dating system most widely used in the Western world. The Year One | Thematic Essay
Teaching and Learning: Images of Power: Title Jeff Kinard Guilford Technical Community College Jamestown, North Carolina firstname.lastname@example.org This unit is designed to aid both instructors and students of western/world civilization surveys to understand past cultures through their art. The images presented here were chosen to illustrate how artworks and the written record complement one another in constructing a more complete understanding of the past. The traditional written record is an important tool for studying the past but in many cases it never existed, has been lost, or has survived only in fragments. Of course, in the case of prehistory we have only the archaeological and artistic legacies to study for clues.

One relief from the Wu family shrine, dating to 151 CE, depicts subjects paying homage to their emperor at his royal residence.

I'm staying independent and advertising-free. Independence means I can have things like the 12,000-reference live online bibliography . No advertising means I can reach more teachers, students and international readers. But it takes some money to run the place. I've been supported over the years by small donations from a few generous readers. Thank you for your support! Quote: What human evolution tells us about ourselves

The MFA and the Van Gogh Museum, Amsterdam, have discovered a painting by Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890) underneath the artist’s painting Ravine , owned by the MFA. Meta Chavannes, the MFA’s Andrew W. Mellon Fellow in Paintings Conservation, was examining x-rays of Ravine in response to a request from outside scholars for technical information on the Museum’s six paintings by van Gogh. During this examination, she discovered a second painting below the paint surface. She met with Louis van Tilborgh, the Van Gogh research curator at the Van Gogh Museum, and they established that the underlying composition was most likely painted in June 1889, during the early period of Van Gogh’s stay at the asylum of Saint-Paul de Mausole near the Provençal town of Saint-Rémy, and was re-used as a support for Ravine a few months later, in October 1889. Van Tilborgh related the x-ray of Ravine to a drawing Van Gogh sent his brother in mid-1889 entitled <em>Wild Vegetation. A Missing Van Gogh Discovered

Brief Description The cultural landscape and archaeological remains of the Bamiyan Valley represent the artistic and religious developments which from the 1st to the 13th centuries characterized ancient Bakhtria, integrating various cultural influences into the Gandhara school of Buddhist art. The area contains numerous Buddhist monastic ensembles and sanctuaries, as well as fortified edifices from the Islamic period. The site is also testimony to the tragic destruction by the Taliban of the two standing Buddha statues, which shook the world in March 2001.
