The oldest door in Britain in Westminster Abbey -A 900-year-old door was put in place in the 1050s, during the reign of the Abbey's founder, Edward the Confessor. The door, which measures 6.5ft by 4ft, was made from one tree which probably grew between AD 924 and 1030. Simon Thurley, of English Heritage, said: "It is incredible to think that when the door was made the Norman Conquest had not yet happened and William of Normandy was still a young man of about 20." That's pretty cool.

Graston cartoon goes viral worldwide
Mike Graston Saturday, December 15, 2012. Graston resonates worldwide Coming to tears at the drawing board on Friday, Windsor Star editorial cartoonist Mike Graston knew no words could even begin to describe the heartbreaking tragedy of the Connecticut killings. That’s why he depicted a tender gesture instead – a hug given by Santa to his elves. And he said his inspiration was simple.
Mike Graston's Colour Cartoon For Saturday, December 15, 2012-It breaks my heart, that this season when families take the time to share the joy and the love that they bring to each other, this time of year, meant to be filled with memories to be cherished for a lifetime; must, instead, be a time of sorrow and loss for so many who no longer have their loved ones to hold on to...only their memories.

Queen Elizabeth I’s Ring. Gold, mother-of-pearl, rubies, and enamel, c.1560. According to tradition this ring was dedicated to James I (James VI of Scotland) as evidence of the Queen’s death and given by him to 1st Earl of Home in 1603. I'd love to sell copies of important ancient or antique jewelry like this!

Dr. Mary Edwards Walker (November 26, 1832 - February 21, 1919) was an American feminist, abolitionist, prohibitionist, alleged spy, prisoner of war and surgeon. She is one of only eight civilians, and the only woman ever to receive the Medal of Honor. At the beginning of the American Civil War, she volunteered for the Union Army as a civilian. At first, she was only allowed to practice as a nurse, as the Army had no female surgeons. During this period, she served at the First Battle of Bull Run

Khnumhotep and Niankhkhnum of ancient Egypt. They are believed to be the first recorded male couple. #lgbt #history
The first Gay Couple in Recorded History in Egypt, 2400 B.C. Two male Royal Manicurists named Niankhkhnum & Khnumhotep were found buried together in a shared tomb similar to the way married couples were often buried. Along with that are hieroglyphs combining their names together to say 'Joined in Life and Joined in Death'. Strangely enough, Niankhkhnum actually did have a wife, but in most of the artwork in the tomb, she has been replaced with Khnumhotep. Via www.omgfacts.com
Khnumhotep and Niankhkhnum were ancient Egyptian royal servants and are believed by some to be the first recorded same-sex couple in history. They shared the title of Overseer of the Manicurists in the Palace of King Niuserre during the Fifth Dynasty of Egyptian pharaohs, c. 2400 BCE, and are listed as "royal confidants" in their joint tomb.

Petra, Jordan. Seeing this would make my childhood dream of being Indiana Jones come true.
the city of the dead
Bucket List: Al Khazneh is in Petra, Jordan. The name Al Khazneh is Arabic for treasury but the building was not believed to have been used as such. It was carved out of sandstone rock supposedly by Hellenistic architects.
Petra, Jordan | After having travelled far and wide, a Nomadic people decided to settle here. Instead of building a city up, they sculpted a city out of the rock face of a gorge wall, an absolutely stunning feat. Their architectural designs were heavily influenced, if not plainly copied, from prominent architectural design of their day; Grecian and Romanesque. This location is at the top of my must see list.
