Islamic Golden AGe of travelling!

I felt like making an article by Ibn Battuta for some reason. Who is he? A man of great importance.

He also travelled. Other Muslims travelled. Did they travel by camel? Sure

Ibn Battuta went to over 40 countries. But country count doesn't matter; city count matters as much. In Anatolia alone, he went to like 40 cities

With 1 November fast approaching, Warsaw's into its usual All-Saint's Day preparations - street vendors are already wheeling in truckloads of potted chrysanthemums, wreaths and coloured lights.

In three days time Warsaw cemetary will be filled with candlelight, the smell of wax and the Spirits of our dead.

The History of Polish Jews

Posted October 25th, 2015 at 09:33 AM by antonina

I'd like to devote this site to Polish Jews.

Frankly, a blog is something I've never written yet, on Historum or elsewhere, but apparently there's a first time for everything.

The nearly thousand years long history of Polish Jews - and the complexities of Polish-Jewish relations - is something I've been trying to look into and understand for a very long time. I've got a private interest in the subject, which I'll explain later.

Perhaps some Historumites...

Living life during Tudor times.

I find the subject of the lives of both peasants of nobility alike during Tudor England, to be utterly fascinating. Since I want to give blogging on here a go, I thought I would start with something I am interested in.

Now, you have to understand that under the reign of the first Tudor king, Henry the VII, England was still a Catholic country, and as such vast portions of the country were owned by monasteries, and the lives of both peasant and peer revolved around the Church.
