Altlandsberg - Der bislang größte Münzschatzfund im Land ist in Altlandsberg (Märkisch-Oderland) der Öffentlichkeit vorgestellt worden. Die rund 7500 wertvolle Geldstücke aus dem Mittelalter seien für die historische Forschung im Land von außerordentlicher Bedeutung, betonte Kunstministerin Martina Münch (SPD) am Mittwoch in einer Mitteilung. Die Münzen aus Gold und Silber datieren aus dem 13. bis 15. Jahrhundert. Sie waren Anfang November bei einer planmäßigen Ausgrabung auf dem Gelände des ehemaligen Schlossgutes entdeckt worden. Der Schatz könnte nach ersten Erkenntnissen während des Einfalls der Hussiten 1432 von den Besitzern verborgen worden sein.

Le 21 décembre 2016 à 09:47 Au cours de la première phase de la Guerre de Cent ans – au XIVe siècle –, le Cotentin fut ravagé par des bandes armées. La cathédrale et l'enclos canonial furent fortifiés pour empêcher l'incursion des troupes. Le XVe siècle changea complètement de contexte : entre 1417 et 1450, les Anglais occupèrent la Normandie, la province était administrée par les représentants du roi d'Angleterre. Fallait-il "bouter" les Anglais ? La nation normande –comme elle était alors appelée – était désunie face à cette question. L'affaiblissement de la royauté française avait fait apparaître des revendications provenant des grands aristocrates, des factions étaient apparues. Comme ailleurs, les Normands étaient divisés entre Arma...

It’s a time of dramatic social change, and this is destabilizing all politics, even birthing a new world. The aristocracy is losing power to a new commercial class of innovators. The new creed is not to rule, but to serve.To be royal once meant to run the world, but no more. The royals now are out of money and they turn to the new wealth of a class of creatures who have seized on new technologies. These new technologies have, in turn, created new opportunities for unprecedented ways of making money. Instead of making things, these people are providing services people need, and this is making them enormously rich.NetflixBut every once in the while, the Black Death comes along to ruin it.That’s because the above description pertains to the...

A female Norwegian Viking who died during the 9th century was buried wearing a status symbol: this repurposed piece of bronze jewellery which was most likely originally created as a fitting on horse harness. Photo: Norwegian University of Science and TechnologyHow did a bronze fitting from horse harness made in a workshop in Ireland more than 1200 years ago end up buried in a Norwegian Fjord? The answer lies in the series of Viking raids on the British Isles that began in AD 793. Researchers have described the likely scenario that took the piece of harness across the ocean. They surmise that a female Norwegian Viking who died some time during the 9th century was buried wearing what was considered a status symbol: a beautiful piece of bro...
