The Persians & Greeks – Crash Course World History


October 24, 2015 by mrcaseyhistory

Get a head start on learning! This is NOT a required homework, but since we just finished studying the war between the Persians and Greeks, I thought I would post it for you to watch. This may be one of your debate questions, so it would probably be a good idea to check it out. I hope you find it educational and entertaining!

Weโ€™re still a few weeks away from studying the Romans, but I just couldnโ€™t help but share this beautiful image of the ruins of the Roman Forum. Itโ€™s amazing to see multiple levels of history in one place.
#ReturnOfTheKing In honor of the end of my leave, I wanted to share this beautifully done medieval style artwork depicting King Elessar Telcontar, Elfstone Strider, Aragorn son of Arathorn, the King of Arnor and Gondor, Heir of Isildur son of Elendil of the Faithful of Westernesse. โ€œThe hands of the King are the hands of a healer.โ€ ๐Ÿƒ (Artwork by Jay Johnstone)
Second and third sons of noblemen can sure be trouble, eh? ๐Ÿฐ Great clip from a Spanish show called El Ministerio del Tiempo (The Ministry of Time) that highlights the way that the inheritance system among nobles in Medieval Europe left most land and wealth to first and maybe second sons of the landowning elites, leaving any younger sons to either join the clergy, join a monastery, or become knights, who were often just armed thugs, either in service of some lord or simply in service of themselves. Remember, weapons cost money, so the wealthy had an advantage in power over the common folk. Tales of chivalry were often more aimed at encouraging good and valiant behavior rather than reflecting actual common practice. #Chivalry #Nobility #TimeTravel #Subtitles (btw the show is on Netflix if youโ€™re interested!)
Brief biography of #Zarathustra aka #Zoroaster, prophet whose teachings form the basis of the the ancient religion of #Zoroastrianism, also known as #Mazdayasna. Last image is a representation of the God of Zoroastrianism, #AhuraMazda.
#DidYouKnow that the first Jack Oโ€™ Lanterns were carved not from pumpkins but from turnips?! The practice originated in #Ireland as part of the pagan holiday #Samhain. This one dates back to 1903! ๐ŸŽƒ #HalloweenHistory . . . For more like this, follow @irish_archaeology
