A bizarre mansion built by Sarah Winchester, the heir to the rifle fortune, this 160-room estate abounds with architectural oddities. Originally seven stories, now only four the 1906 earthquake, the mansion was built by Mrs. Winchester after the untimely deaths of her husband and child. She said she was also haunted by the spirits of those killed by the Winchester rifle. Mrs. Winchester had her team of carpenters work ceaselessly for 38 years, building odd items such as stairs that led nowhere.

Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, CA. Sometime in the 1800s, Sarah Winchester told a medium she was being haunted by those killed by a Winchester rifle. The medium said the only way to get ride of the curse was to build a neverending house. The door to nowhere, the disappearing staircase, a labrynth of corridors.

Stay at The Winchester Mystery House is a mansion in Northern California. It once was the residence of Sarah Winchester, the widow of gun magnate William Wirt Winchester. It was continuously under construction for 38 years and is reported to be haunted. Belief holds that a medium told Winchester she must build a home for the spirits who had fallen from the Winchester rifle, and she must never stop building. If she continued building she would live forever, but if she stopped she would die.

Paraboloids. A simpler aeroplane detection device was required preferably to be worn round the head. From 1930 different versions were tested and it appeared that a miniature version of the parabolic reflectors produced the best results, among other things because these preserved the "sound image" best. https://hearingcentral.com/shop/

The Cyrus Cylinder, which is sometimes called "the first declaration of human rights," is a barrel-shaped baked clay cylinder, about 9" long and 4" wide - smaller than an American football.Discovered in the ruins of Babylon, the Cyrus Cylinder is from the 6th century BC, and is inscribed in Akkadian cuneiform.This cylinder has sometimes been described as the ‘first charter of human rights’, but it in fact reflects a long tradition in Mesopotamia.
The Cyrus Cylinder (Persian: منشور کوروش) is an ancient clay cylinder, now broken into several fragments, on which is written a declaration in Akkadian cuneiform script in the name of the Achaemenid king Cyrus the Great.

Seated goddess with a child, Hittite Empire, Old Hittite; 15th–13th century BC, Anatolia, central region, gold. This tiny pendant was probably intended to be worn round the neck as an amulet. These objects from Hittite culture suggest that these small figures were portable representations of Hittite gods. The figure shown here, cast in gold using the lost-wax process, is of a seated goddess in a long gown, with large oval eyes and a thin mouth with creases at the sides. She is wearing simple, looped earrings and a necklace. Her disk-like headdress probably represents the sun, which would lead to the conclusion that this may be the sun goddess, Arinna, a major Hittite divinity. A loop for suspension protrudes from the back of the headdress. On her lap the goddess holds a naked child, cast separately of solid gold and then attached. The chair on which they are seated is backless and has lion paws. (Per Metmuseum.org)
HITTITE - Seated goddess with a child, Hittite Empire, Old Hittite; 15th–13th century BCE, Anatolia, central region, gold
dUTU URU is an ancient Hittite sun goddess, more commonly referred to simply as the sun goddess of Arinna. The Hittite king Mursili II (1321 – 1295 BCE) was known to have worshiped her. She is believed to have derived from the earth goddess of the famed neolithic site of Çatalhöyük.

Broch of Mousa - the finest preserved example of a broch or round tower in Shetland, Scotland. It is the tallest still standing in the world and amongst the best-preserved prehistoric buildings in Europe. It is thought to have been constructed circa 100 BC, one of 570 brochs built throughout Scotland. The site is managed by Historic Scotland.

Broch of Mousa (UK) It’s stunning to think that this building has lasted longer than any of the countries that make up the United Kingdom, or any of the ruined castles, palaces and monasteries in the British landscape. Broch means round tower, and Mousa is just one of nearly 600 in Scotland. It is thought to have been built in 100BC, and while it’s the best preserved of any broch, that’s probably because it’s diameter is one of the smallest, while boasting one of the thickest wall bases.
Mousa Broch. The construction on these things is quite interesting.

Two young Jews are humiliated in front of their classmates at a school in Germany in 1935. Before the Holocaust began in earnest, the Nazis began a policy of ever-increasing discrimination, intolerance and outright abuse against the Jews, from the top offices of Govt., right down to classrooms and schoolyards. The words on the blackboard read, "The Jew is our greatest enemy! Beware of the Jew!"
