I just watched Razorfist's interview with the Battletech author who was cancelled. Razorfist has really become the first guy with a substantial platform to champion us little guys.

And while his call to boycott is certainly a correct call to arms. There's more to be aware of 🧵
Battletech is an IP from Catalyst gamelabs own by Topps trading card company.

A parent company that produces sports trading cards and also owns the Shadowrun IP
Earlier this year, Topps was acquired by finance goblin Michael G Rubin and his company "Fanatics". Image

Beyond this world is an imaginal realm. Lovecraft called it the Dreamland, Greeks called it Oneiros, Norse referred to its essence as the mead of inspiration.

Tap into it. Drink its nectar. But first you must work towards the tripartite of wellness. 🧵
Woke cultists create filth. They serve only to generate propaganda for the Mechanurge. However their spiritual corruption reflects in their physiognomy and mental state.

They're fat, weak, stupid, ugly and mentally ill. For this reason their creations will decay into dust.
You, as an #IronAge creator face an insurmountable foe. The totality of the global machine which seeks your annihilation.

But a full connection into the primordial mysteries of dreamsea mythopoetica can help you create immortal art.

But it requires discipline and health.

#Solstice #Sunrise at the Barrow - a meditation on time, what litte, we know of #AngloSaxon "#Litha", and on what #livinghistory #history and #archaeology is truly "for". 🧵 Image
Very early yesterday morning members Æd and AlexP travelled to @SoultonHall @SacredStonesLtd Soulton Long Barrow to experience a unique moment in the solar calendar which, though concerned with the reckoning of time, is essentially universal and #timeless. 1/32
The Midsummer Solstice has always been a significant moment in the year, across many cultures, as far back as deep #prehistory. In Britain our landscape is dotted with #stoneage #neolithic and #bronzeage #prehistoric monuments which bear witness to this. 2/32 Image

There are many different types of stone structures in #KSA and it is easy to be confused by all the different shapes and what they were used for. In this thread, we will present the main types of structures our project has documented, the names we use, and some basic information. Image
Mustatil- these large structures are generally rectangular(ish) in shape and consist of two thick platforms at either end connected by 2-5 long walls. These are ritual structures dating to the #Neolithic i.e 7000 years ago. #MustatilMonday. Image
Kite- A kite is a large animal hunting trap. They are found in a range of different shapes and sizes, from simple V-shape constructions to much more elaborate structures, like those found around #Khaybar. These date from the #Neolithic onwards. ImageImage

El pobladet de la Ferradura d’#Ulldecona és una cucada. És una mena de vaixell estret i antic, ancorat eternament al damunt d’un sortint de la part sud de la serra del #Montsià, a les terres del #Sénia. Des de l’aire, n’hi ha pocs de tan fotogènics.

(Séniaphil... 🧵🪡🧶👇)
Es va construir en alçada, com era habitual durant el període (primera edat del ferro 800-600, pre-ibèric), per raons òbviament defensives i de control visual de l’entorn. Un entorn, val a dir-ho, meravellós: la foia d’Ulldecona.
Un entorn d’una qualitat paisatgística, per altra banda, encara ara extraordinària,🔝, malgrat les intenses agressions que avui dia està patint (i, desgraciadament, molt a tocar del jaciment, per cert...).

És menut, menut, menut; uns 400 mq, només. Tan sols té

#Catalunya és un país extremadament ric en #patrimoni #arqueològic #protohistòric. Molt més que altres nacions reconegudes arreu pel seu patrimoni i que, a més, l’estimen, el valoren i en viuen, com poden ser el cas d’#Anglaterra o d’#Escòcia.

(little heritage phil...) Image
El patrimoni protohistòric d'aquestes altres nacions, tot i ser extraordinari és, al costat del nostre, de putxinel·lis. I, malgrat això, ells l’han sabut convertir intel·ligentment en un actiu cultural i econòmic (òbviament, Image
sumant-lo a la resta del seu #heritage d’altres èpoques) mentre que nosaltres, sempre capaços de les majors de les proeses, l’hem sabut convertir (no era pas fàcil, atenent a la qualitat del que tenim entre mans...) i el vivim com un problema. Image

Thanks to @kimbiddulph it’s #Archaeology31 time again! - Starting with prompt number one: #new.

Which in this case is: New year, new journal. Empty pages waiting to be filled with thoughts, notes, sketches ... opportunities. Image
#Archaeology31 day 2, #future, offers a great chance to highlight a topic I found particularly interesting as of late:

How will an #ArchaeologyOfTheFuture look like - What do *we* leave behind for future colleagues?

(Weekend reading recommendations included. 😉) Image
Starting with the question what actually constitutes #CulturalHeritage, #sites, and #monuments of our age ...

Welcome to today's virtual #LowTideTrail. Flamborough Head juts into the North Sea on the Yorkshire coast. The area has seen much defensive activity over 4500 years. We'll also see some #archaeology of lifesaving on our way. Let's take a look! @Active_Coast #HumberDiscovery
This stretch of coast was particularly hazardous to sailing ships. The North Landing Lifeboat station was built in 1871 & was 1 of 2 stations covering Flamborough Head. Footage of the final launch of the North Bay lifeboat can be found via @YorkshireFilm-…
Yorkshire cobles are a traditional fishing boat used along this coast. Flamborough had an active fleet of cobles operating out of North landing. This example has been laid up.

Here's a film about fishing from North Bay in 1933-…

Here's a THREAD I’ve been mulling over recently: it’s about an #IronAge fenland site called Stonea Camp, claimed to be the lowest-lying ‘#hillfort’ in Britain. What does its location & archaeology suggest about its original purpose? (Photo…) Image
This is what the site looks like: a roughly D-shaped enclosure believed to have been built in 2 phases. (A still from @oatweet’s sketch fab of the site, which I can’t currently seem to make to work Image
3. The ditches/banks of the original 9.6 ha. enclosure have been almost completely ploughed out. Little remains of 2 further periods of change, but the partially-reconstructed banks & ditches of the last, more complex, 4ha. enclosure still survive (see Image

#TodaysHappiness c175BC #IronAge communities along the Rhine estuary nor Rotterdam minimised the flow of salt water onto their coastal grazing in a system that was maintained for at least 350 years... Image
2. They built retaining banks with dams behind them to store fresh water flowing to the coast during high tides. At low tides, that water drained into the sea through timber pipes. As the sea water rose during high tides, it pushed against clappers on the pipes' seaward ends .... Image
3. closing the pipes to protect the grazing: salt water was prevented from coming in & water flowed only towards the sea. Image
