Iron production did not begin until BC, and iron ore was not found in Egypt, making the iron dagger rare, and the context suggests that the iron dagger was valued on a level equal to that of its ceremonial gold counterpart. One of the earliest objects made of smelted iron is a dagger dating to before BC, found in a context that suggests it was treated as an ornamental object of great value.
The artisans and blacksmiths of Iberia in what is now southern Spain and southwestern France produced various iron daggers and swords of high quality from the 5th to the 3rd century BC, in ornamentation and patterns influenced by Greek, Punic Carthaginian , and Phoenician culture. Iberian daggers and swords were later adopted by Hannibal and his Carthaginian armies.
The design and fabrication of the pugio was taken directly from Iberian daggers and short swords; the Romans even adopted the triangular-bladed Iberian dagger, which they called the parazonium. As an extreme close-quarter combat weapon, the pugio was the Roman soldier's last line of defense. When not in battle, the pugio served as a convenient utility knife.
The term dagger appears only in the Late Middle Ages , reflecting the fact that while the dagger had been known in antiquity, it had disappeared during the Early Middle Ages, replaced by the hewing knife or seax. The dagger reappeared in the 12th century as the "knightly dagger", or more properly cross-hilt or quillon dagger,  and was developed into a common arm and tool for civilian use by the late medieval period. Many of these cross-hilt daggers resemble miniature swords, with cross guards and pommels very similar in form to swords of the period.
The Old French term dague appears to have referred to these weapons in the 13th century, alongside other terms such as poignal and basilard. The Middle English dagger is used from the s.
During this time, the dagger was often employed in the role of a secondary defense weapon in close combat. The knightly dagger evolved into the larger baselard knife in the 14th century. During the 14th century, it became fairly common for knights to fight on foot to strengthen the infantry defensive line.
This necessitated greater dagger usage. At Agincourt archers used them to dispatch dismounted knights by thrusting the narrow blades through helmet vents and other apertures. Sloane MS. In the Late Middle Ages, knives with blade designs that emphasized thrusting attacks, such as the stiletto , became increasingly popular, and some thrusting knives commonly referred to as 'daggers' ceased to have a cutting edge.
This was a response to the deployment of heavy armor, such as maille and plate armour , where cutting attacks were ineffective and focus was on thrusts with narrow blades to punch through mail or aim at armour plate intersections or the eye slits of the helmet visor. These late medieval thrusting weapons are sometimes classed by the shape of their hilt as either roundel , bollock or ear daggers.
The term dagger is coined in this time, as are the Early Modern German equivalents dolch tolch and degen tegen. In the German school of fencing , Johannes Liechtenauer Ms. These techniques in some respects resemble modern knife fighting , but emphasized thrusting strokes almost exclusively, instead of slashes and cuts. When used offensively, a standard attack frequently employed the reverse or icepick grip , stabbing downward with the blade to increase thrust and penetrative force.
This was done primarily because the blade point frequently had to penetrate or push apart an opponent's steel chain mail or plate armor in order to inflict an injury. The disadvantage of employing the medieval dagger in this manner was that it could easily be blocked by a variety of techniques, most notably by a block with the weaponless arm while simultaneously attacking with a weapon held in the right hand. One of the best Detroit-style tunes you will find on Soma Quality Recordings.
The A side contains two slightly above average filler tracks, and the odd However "Mosaic" is a nice pumping acidic club techno tune, and "Moisture" is an absolute sweatbox slammer that would demolish any modern-day A must for any lover of pure, sweaty, dirty, headbanging techno. Gotta give this one 5 stars for the hard plink-plonk whomper that is C1 "Argynine".
This is a fantastic record. If St. The A-side should be more familiar to fans of Relief's signature Grab this for the incredibly hot Detroit-style techno workout "Live Drummer". The flow is very sensible using simple ideas with lots of sweet fx and cuts happening over the top. In that respect, it reminds me a lot of Jan Driver 's " Filter ". Manic and powerful, yet balanced and focused Rob Acid remix is fantastic.
Would be great for an outdoor block Not only would the boat have to be huge, but how are you going to collect every animal on the planet and put it on that ship?
Could it be a story? Could it be technology somehow gathering up all living things as in a DNA bank of some kind? Hard to imagine how that would happen so far back, but if it did happen, it would need to be told as a story, and then to be told as a story, and the story of a boat works.
Perhaps this is really an extraterrestrial DNA bank as well. The extraterrestrials need plants and animals and minerals on this planet, too. So, extraterrestrials coming here would want to do that as well. Is there any evidence that such a thing is even possible? In , on the Arctic island of Svalbard, a vault was built to store the seeds of hundreds of thousands of plants in the event of a global catastrophe. Cutting-edge science or merely history repeating itself? If each species can be held in a tiny vile like this, then it all becomes very logical.
What did they witness? And is it possible that extraterrestrials have influenced the development of mankind? Many claim that the proof can be found in some unusual places. There have been literally hundreds of credible accounts of strange creatures, UFO sightings and otherworldly phenomena that took place, even in the so-called Dark Ages. Stories are going from Scotland to England to Italy to the Crusades.
Remember the Crusades took place over hundreds of years. A strange image coming out of a cloud in the sky. Why would we say this is a UFO? Because, traditionally, UFOs mask themselves by forming a cloud around themselves. In his 13th century historical work titled Otto Imperialia, Gervase of Tilbury wrote about an aerial craft over the city of Bristol, England, which caught an anchor in a church steeple. All throughout the Middle Ages, there are some magnificent paintings, and in certain areas of the painting, there are what looks like to be UFOs.
But why would Earth have two antennae sticking out of it? And why would it be round? Because the mainstream viewpoint at the time was that the Earth was flat. Here are pictures of the crucifixion dated around from Kosovo. Here are, presumably, vehicles with people driving them in attendance at the crucifixion. Could he be reflecting the folklore? Did the medieval artists include strange creatures and flying spacecraft in their paintings because they had seen them in real life?
Or were they trying to communicate their belief that the miraculous events of the New Testament had otherworldly origins? In his book, The Gods of Eden, author William Bramley cites private journals and other publications throughout Europe which contain accounts of cigar-shaped flying objects emitting noxious mists.
The first reports of this kind began during the midth century, closely corresponding to the outbreak of the worst health epidemic in human history— the Black Plague. The Black Plague, back in the s, many have said was caused by a virus from a rodent— bitten by fleas. There are similar reports from the Justinian plague from earlier in history, and even later plagues, the cholera epidemics.
Italian historian Matteo Villani, who both chronicled the Black Death and died from it in the 14th century, wrote of pestilential fogs reported by travelers from Asia. He even wrote that people were convinced they could actually see the plague coming through the streets.
But what some ancient astronaut believers find to be even stronger evidence of alien involvement, are the numerous reports of mysterious black-cloaked creatures who would appear on the outskirts of villages just before plague broke out. These figures in black would usually appear on the outskirts of a town. They were carrying these long devices that look like scythes. These figures in black would start sweeping in the fields as though they were cutting down the wheat.
Flying cylinders spreading plague from the sky? Black-clad aliens looking to destroy humans? But even if possible, why? Their skin was pale. They wore strange clothes made of bright, often shiny materials. They arrived in massive ships and had powerful weapons. To the natives, the visitors were truly aliens from a strange, faraway world— powerful beings who might just as well have been sent from the heavens.
Columbus wrote in his journal that the inhabitants eagerly came out to see their ships, and asked them if they had come from the heavens.
Less well-known is that Columbus had an alien encounter of his own, one reported in his log just days before he reached the shores of the New World. The Admiral, standing on the quarter-deck saw a light. Calling to Pedro Gutierrez, he told him he saw a light, and bid him look that way, which he did and saw it. The Admiral again perceived it once or twice, appearing like the light of a wax candle moving up and down.
Summoning another member of the crew, the two watched as the light vanished and reappeared repeatedly. Columbus noted in the log a glowing object rise out of the water, and head off into the atmosphere. Something from out of this world? If Columbus sighting was so extraordinary, why do we only find a record of it in his log? Some believe another account of this event exists in the official records of the Spanish Inquisition. Why did you say menorah?
Oh, so you are a Jew. And good luck if you can go to the secret file of the Vatican and try to dig for a document as explosive as this one. Secret files of the Spanish Inquisition?
