Happy Equinox!

(Description: Every September equinox, when the rainy season started, the Inca celebrated Coya Raymi (meaning festival of the empress). This festival honoured the empress (the coya) and also Killa, the moon goddess. The mummies of previous emperors and empresses were paraded through the streets and given offerings.)

I have a chapter in Jungle-tastic Tales about how pre-Columbian societies in the Amazon were more complex and larger than previously thought.

Here's a new article about it:

"The vast network of interconnected settlements shows that the Amazon was much more populated during the pre-Columbian era than previously suspected".

#OnThisDay in 1797, Mary Shelley was born!

The mother of science fiction, she wrote some of #Frankenstein whilst living in #Bath!

I really want to go to the House of Mary Shelley in Bath one day!!

If I had space, she'd be in my upcoming book about women in Somerset through the ages.

On 28th August 1963, it was announced that there would be no more employment discrimination on the buses in Bristol.

The decision came after Black people came together in a protest known as the Bristol Bus Boycott over the refusal of the Bristol Omnibus Company to employ non-white people.

Both William and Elizabeth taught art. William also invented plasticine whilst Elizabeth was a talented miniaturist. She exhibited at prestigious places e.g. the Royal Academy and Chicago's World Fair.

She was buried with her husband in St Nicholas' churchyard, Bathampton.

The area, unhearthed as many during construction works, distinguishes itself for the presence of water, still flowing into a II century CE castellum acquae ( distribution tank) frome the Virgo Acqueduct, that brings water to Rome center as it did without interruption since Augustus鈥 times, supplying water to Fontana di Trevi (and others)
very clear water kept underground  in the remains of an ancient roman tank, marble steps descending into it, a brick arc in the background

A very easy and but charming morsel of the wonders of Subterranean Rome tasted in vicolo del Puttarello a mere spit from the Trevi Fountain. Named Vicus Caprarius, nine metres underground, it鈥檚 a glimpse into Rome鈥檚 past, some ten thousand century of it.

Also, when #WorldWar2 broke out in 1939, the Parish Rooms was taken over by the War Department and used as a feeding place for school dinners, pies for agricultural labourers and other essential workers, air raid wardens, the home guard and so on.

" 'Our analyses show that the population at Machu Picchu was highly heterogeneous, with individuals exhibiting genetic ancestries associated with groups from regions throughout the Inca Empire including the coast, highlands and Amazonia,' says study co-author Richard Burger, an archaeologist at #Yale.

While royals only came to #MachuPicchu during the dry season, a community of servants lived at the site year round."

Archaeologists in Peru have discovered something exciting at the Chavin de Huantar archaeological site. They've uncovered a sealed corridor that's been named 鈥渢he condor鈥檚 passageway". It's believed to lead to other chambers within the ancient temple complex of the Chavin culture, which dates back to around 2,000 BC.

"We now have good evidence 鈥 together with other sites from South and North America 鈥 that we have to rethink our ideas about the migration of humans to the Americas."

Giant sloth pendants indicate humans settled Americas earlier than thought
Scientists studied jewelry made from now extinct creatures and theorize that humans arrived in Americas 27,000 years ago


Kids are STILL being taught at school that Columbus discovered America. 馃槦
And being taught about him withour recognising his role as a slave owner.

For more...
"Did Christopher Columbus Discover the Americas?
No. Humans have lived in the Americas for at least 15,000 years. By the time Columbus arrived, the Americas were populated by hundreds of small nations and several full-out empires such as the Inca in Peru and the Aztecs in Mexico."

Alright, this seems to be a mandatory #Histodon / #Histodons ritual: I'm a historian of African American experiences, the U.S. South, and of white supremacy and gender. My first book was on white (supremacist) women, class, and Massive Resistance (UGA Press, 2021: https://ugapress.org/book/9780820358628/massive-resistance-and-southern-womanhood/). Currently, I am working on 19th and 20th century transnational histories of Black concert dance (and could not be more excited about it 馃榾). Thanks for reading, and I look forward to connecting on here.

Ancient artefacts should ideally be returned to their country of origin. I'm sharing here so that more people can see it.

From Bristol Museum.

The first is:
Jar in shape of the maize god
Clay
When: Between 650-1,100 years ago
Where: Chim煤 culture, Peru, South America

The second isn't ancient so seems fine to be to be in England. It is:
Face chullu
About 30 years ago
Cusco region, Peru

Despite his fame, Bill 鈥淏ojangles鈥 Robinson died in poverty鈥 having given away most of his money to activism and philanthropy. He died in New York City on November 25, 1949. Ed Sullivan arranged and funded Robinson's funeral, with 32,000 people paying their respects at the 369th Infantry Regiment Armory in Harlem. National Tap Dance Day was established on his birthday in 1989 to honor his contributions.

He starred in Hollywood films and played alongside Shirley Temple, but faced limited opportunities for diverse roles. Despite this, Robinson remained a tap-dancing icon, known for his elegant footwork. He was involved in baseball and cofounded the New York Black Yankees team.

Bojangles began dancing at the age of 5 and joined various touring companies and vaudeville acts. With his solo act, he achieved fame as a nightclub and musical-comedy performer. In World War I, he served as a rifleman and drum major. Robinson's breakthrough came in 1928 when he starred in the Broadway musical revue "Blackbirds of 1928" and captivated audiences with his famous "stair dance."
