“The Willamette Meteorite, discovered in Oregon, is the largest meteorite found in North America and the sixth largest in the world. Researchers believe the meteorite landed in what is now Canada or Montana, and was transported as a glacial erratic to the Willamette Valley during the Missoula Floods at the end of the last Ice Age (~13,000 years ago). The Meteorite weighs about 32,000 pounds (15,000 kg) and is over 91% iron and 7.62% nickel, with traces of cobalt and phosphorus.”

Initial work on the Eiffel Tower in Paris began in January 1887. It took about 6 months to lay the foundation; the ironwork finally began by the end of June. There were over 18,038 different pieces that needed to be especially designed prior to putting the tower together. Each piece of this giant puzzle was carried to the site by horse drawn carts from a factory outside of the city.

Lady and Knight with Hawk from a medieval manuscript. Looks about 12-13th century to me. These old manuscript plates give us a good idea of the clothing they would have worn back then. Not quite as glamorous as Hollywood would have us believe.

The Piri Reis map is a pre-modern world map compiled in 1513 from military intelligence by the Ottoman admiral and cartographer Piri Reis. The half of the map that survives shows the western coasts of Europe and North Africa and the coast of Brazil with reasonable accuracy. Various Atlantic islands including the Azores and Canary Islands are depicted, as is the mythical island of Antillia and possibly Japan.
