In one neighborhood I work, a young lady named Cassidy informed me that she is expecting a baby. Smiley

Hi! How are you all?
I'm quite busy lately and I don't have as much time as before to relax reading in detail the threads here so, I don't write either. I feel I've left a bit... behind in the news of the royas!

However, I still have a lot of fun reading whenever I can and when I see something interesting, I'm immediately thinking this thread here!

So, earlier this morning I wathced this video about transporting and later unveiling an unimaginably stunning ancient greek mosaic in Northern Greece, Macedonia.
The mosaic it's about god of wine (and fun and maybe... madness), Dionysus! https://www.facebook.com/...ed&v=1062119404592263
I was always fascinated by all these huge missions protecting an art masterpiece, getting it elsewhere to fix it, the whole maintenance process etc.



Another video, which has nothing to do with archaeology but a lot with the preception we have about the rest of the world in different time periods and regions, a tv survey in Australia, back in 1962 (60 years ago! ) about "what languages should be taught in Autralian schools". I love LOVE the old footages because there's no need to try to recreate an older era, it's all there. You can see a whole world unveiling in front of you! BUT the most interesting part of the video are, of course, the answers... That not so sweet old lady in 0.25...



Here we have a pair of earrings, from the island of Kos. Made in 18th century, their design (known as bell) is based on typical byzantine style. What we see hanging on their edges are real pearls


and another pair




Last, but definitely not least, world famous composer Mikis Theodorakis passed away earlier this month. He was 96 years old, he had health issues for many years and his family said he was in a lot of pain.
He was known for his unbellievable talent and for his political views as well, which are profound in his whole corpus.
Theodorakis gave us, among other things, the music of Zorba the Greek. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzlcxN0lxSo
He also wrote the music for the film Serpico.
Here's the article from the New York Times: https://www.nytimes.com/2...kis-theodorakis-dead.html

So I did the Highgrove Garden tour yesterday, and it was just lovely. Highly recommended.

Firstly, there is a lot more security than on your average garden visit and photography is not allowed, so I've nabbed a few photos off the internet for illustration.

The house is just outside Tetbury, on the edge of the Cotswolds. Punters arrive at a visitor centre where they are welcomed and given a security briefing. You wait in this nice room decorated with Charles's watercolours and photographs of the family, including this lovely shot:



You then are taken on a two hour tour of the gardens, with lots of information about organic principles, plant choices and the design of the garden. It's divided up into distinct areas - including a cottage garden near the visitor centre, the Thyme Walk in front of the house:



The arboretum, the kitchen garden, and the wildflower meadow. My favourite bit was the stumpery:



The garden is surprisingly personal, with lots of nice touches. There's a poplar tree, planted by Charles and Prince George, huge terracotta pots gifted by the Spanish royal family, tributes to beloved pets, to the Queen mother, busts of friends and people Charles admires.

At the end, there's a chance to visit the gift shop and the excellent cafe.

The past week I had a rather unexpected short holiday in Germany, along part of the Moselle and Rhine rivers. Along both rivers you will find various castles and related (both ruins and relatively intact). Some visited with great interest, while others admired from the outside.

In addition, you also become aware of which different powers have been in power in this region. For example, former president of France, Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, was born in Rhineland (during the occupation of this region by France)
