There are several subjects in history that I have always been intrigued with that I would love to share with you! Leave a comment letting me know some of your favorites!
King Tut- AKA King Tutankhamun
King Tut is the famous Egyptian boy king (began reign at age 9) whose tomb was found by Howard Carter in 1922. His death (at age 19) was due to unknown causes and has sparked intense debates among the scientific community. His funeral mask, throne, and more were made of solid gold.
How did he die? Some theories are a broken leg, murdered, natural causes, and the list goes on.
We may never truly know!
The Lost Roanoke Colony
Most Americans know the story of the “Lost Colony”- but it is still very intriguing nonetheless! The village of Roanoke was one of the first American colonies to be settled from Europe. The colony was in desperate need of food and supplies, so England sent John White over to check on the situation. When he arrived, then entire colony of Roanoke had vanished. Houses, people, shelters and all! All that was left was a fence, a few small cannons, and the word “Croatoan” carved into some wood.
A few popular theories as to this intriguing vanishing colony? The colony simply left, the colony left and moved with the Native Americans, or the colonists were killed by the Native Americans. What really happened? We may never know!
Stonehenge & Carnac Stones
Megalithic stone arrangements. Why are they there? Where did they come from?
The Voynich Manuscript
The Voynich Manuscript is deemd the world’s most mysterious manuscript. Why? Because it’s author, script, and language are all unknown. Yep- we can’t even read it! It has defied all decipherment attempts in history. This images seem to indicate that it is a scientific book written in the 1400’s, but since it’s language cannot be deciphered we cannot know for sure. Will we ever figure it out?
