The Wars of the Roses were a series of civil wars fought in medieval England from 1455 to 1487 between the House of Lancaster and the House of York. The name Wars of the Roses is based on the badges used by the two sides, the red rose for the Lancastrians and the white rose for the Yorkists. Major causes of the conflict include: 1) both houses were direct descendents of king Edward III; 2) the ruling Lancastrian king, Henry VI, surrounded himself with unpopular nobles; 3) the civil unrest of much of the population; 4) the availability of many powerful lords with their own private armies; and 5) the untimely episodes of mental illness by king Henry VI. Please see the origins page for more information on the start of the wars. This site presents a clear and easy-to-follow survey of the Wars of the Roses including major players and important battles.

Do Humans Matter?
The 25 Biggest Mysteries of History Although they say curiosity has the power to somehow kill your cat, it seems that humans are immune. We would however, suggest putting Pooky away (just in case) because we are about to unleash the biggest mysteries known to man. Although some of these mysteries are only on the list as a result of their infamy, some are genuinely baffling, and if you manage to solve any of them leave a comment below so that we can cross them off. In 1587 121 colonists led by John White arrived on Roanoke Island in present day North Carolina to establish a colony. As tensions mounted with the native population, however, John White returned to England in order to solicit reinforcements.

Have you ever wondered what Russia looked like shortly before the revolution, but aren’t satisfied with black and white photos? Well then, you owe Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii a debt of thanks. While color film was still years away from development, the chemist-turned-photojournalist developed his own solution to capture the vivid colors of his native home. Using color-filtered glass plates, he photographed a scene in red, then blue, then green and then put the images together to reveal a colorized portrait. His amazing photographs, taken from 1909 to 1912 show what Russian life was like for everyone from peasants to noblemen before the country turned to communism. 100-Year-Old Color Photos of Pre-Revolution Russia 100-Year-Old Color Photos of Pre-Revolution Russia
What is the connection between the seemingly disjointed fields of Conspiracy Theories, Serial Killers, Mobsters, Hauntings, and Military Leaders? Fear is a chemical process that has a fitting and logical place in science of biological evolution. But to study only the science of fear is to miss the fantastic foothold it has on the doorway to the irrational.

Our deep-rooted fear of one another, however, is a little more difficult to explain rationally. Carpe Noctem - Seize the Night Carpe Noctem - Seize the Night
The Easter Island “Heads” Have Bodies Maybe this isn’t a newsflash to anyone but me, but, um, the Moai “heads” on Easter Island have bodies. Because some of the statues are set deep into the ground, and because the heads on the statues are disproportionately large, many people (myself included) tend to think of them as just big heads. But the bodies (generally not including legs, though there is at least one kneeling statue) are there — in many cases, underground. The Easter Island “Heads” Have Bodies
