Carthaginian officers during the Punic Wars. The officer class was comprised of aristocratic men from the noble strata of society. It was only during the conclusion of the first Punic War that men of more humble origins came to the fore. Unfortunately it was too late and Carthage was defeated.

Martin Luther - 16th Century German Priest got distressed by Pope's practice (by Pope Leo X) of charging a price for forgiving sinners in the name of God. He started off the "Protestant Reformation", protesting against it. Pope Leo X appointed Johann Tetzel to sell forgiveness in return for money guaranteeing people that their sins would be forgiven by God if they paid money to Church. Tetzel was quoted saying "As soon as a coin in the coffer rings the soul from purgatory springs"

The Stele of Hammurabi, one of the first law codes of ancient times. Atop the Stele, we see an image of Hammurabi receiving the code from the Sun God.

Stele with law code of Hammurabi, from Susa, Iran, ca. 1780 BCE. Basalt, approx. 7’ 4” high. Louvre, Paris Hammurabi developed a single, unified code of law 282 law codes detailed crimes and penalties Over 3500 cuneiform characters were carved into a black-basalt stele. (Kind of fitting that it's carved onto a massive phallus...)
Critics of the Bible use to question whether a complex code of laws, such as that which Moses penned, could have been written at so early a time (c. 1446 BC). Their question was answered in 1901. It was then that a French excavator by the name of Jacques de Morgan unearthed a black stone monument (called a stele) more than seven feet tall at Susa in southwest Iran. The monument, which is now on display at the Louvre, Paris, contains 282 laws inscribed on it and is known as the Code of Hammurabi.

Puma Punku ruins in Tiahuanaco, Bolivia, South America.
We stand today at an unprecedented turning point in human history. In recent years two versions of ancient history have formed. One, we shall call ‘alternative’ history, the other we shall refer to as ‘official’ history. The former ponders over a variety of anomalies and tries to make sense out of the corpus of evidence, i.e., the pyramids and timelines, why they were built, by whom and when. The latter conducts digs, catalogues pottery shards, and tries to defend its proposal there are no enigm

Easter Island heads have full bodies. Rapa-Nui, Chile
Did you know the Easter Island heads had bodies under the ground? - must visit this place.
Explorers have long known there was more to the 887 statues on Easter Island some 2,000 miles west of Chile, than just the statue heads made famous in photographs. When most people think of the renowned monolithic statues, they think of the heads only. But in October 2011, the Easter Island Statue Project began its Season V expedition, revealing remarkable photos showing that the bodies of the statues go far deeper underground than just about anyone had imagined.
