Exciting new boat discovery in Norway! This time, an almost perfectly preserved LOG BOAT. Why is this exciting? And does it relate to the Vikings? Repton? And the Silk Roads? Maybe.... bear with me: #riverkings /1

This boat was found a few days ago on a farm in southern Norway, at the edge of a lake. We don't know the age yet, could be ~2000 to 500 years old, maybe older. BUT the farmer's great-grandad found two log boats there in 1932, both dated to the Viking Age or just before /2
A few other logboats dating to the Viking Age have been found elsewhere in lakes and bogs, and very occasionally, in graves.

Some more info by Frans-Arne H. Stylegar in Norwegian on log boats here:

So, because I’m tired of Coronatweets, and I’m stuck on a 3 hour plane and don’t want to do real work, I thought I’d distract you with some general thoughts on this year’s Eurovision songs, in my first #ESC2020 thread of the year
Not all the songs are out so far, but enough now to start forming opinions, and in general, this is going to be an awesomely amazing year. A much better showing all round than 2019, and possibly better than 2018 levels. Videos are here: youtube.com/playlist?list=…
Retro is big this year. From random cassettes and floppies in #GEO 🇬🇪 to pixel art in #ISL 🇮🇸 to... whatever you want to make of #RUS 🇷🇺... Retro has made a comeback

1. Here's my take on #Putin-#Trump encounter for @ispionline where I argue the summit may have high hopes, but modest expectations

2. This is what #Putin heads into #HelsinkiSummit with in terms of #Syria, #Iran: almon.co/32y5
3. #Putin & #Trump will be meet face-to-face around noon (1pm #Moscow time). The leaders have at least 3 hours scheduled for themselves after which they will proceed to another room for working lunch in a broader format with ministers and advisers.

Top international adviser to #Iran's SP Ali Akbar Velayati speaking @ValdaiClub now:says term #MiddleEast is British concept, he'd rather use West Asia/North Africa,argues due to #US influence some countries seek to play greater regional role (than they can)
Velayati:*throughout history external powers sought to dominate Mideast, #US no exception here, #Libya, #Somalia brought manifestations of western FP,#Trump seeks to undermine region,he wants to partition #Syria as they did w/ 🇱🇾 & #Iraq - bith once big, important states
Velayati: New element is after Islamic Revolution #Iran able to conduct policies independent of Western states, this is real reason why #US seeks to counter IRN.But if ot were not for #Russia & IRN, Leader of Nusra would be ruling today in #Damascus, head of #ISIS-in #Baghdad.

#SPARUS thoughts: Football can be cruel sometimes. Spain clearly the much better side, completing around 500+ more passes, at least 16 more shots than Russia, and they're the ones going home. In penalty shootouts, luck is very much a factor. At that point it was 50/50 odds, maybe
even greater odds Russia advances given they have momentum as the host country. Although Spain outplayed Russia, it was not an impressive display from the 2010 champions. Lots of possession with no end product. Give credit to Russia for their impressive defensive shape and....
fortitude to survive. I will say it looked like Spain were robbed of a pk in the 2nd half of extra time, but to be fair it would have been an unfitting end to such a dramatic match (Spain doesn't care about that though). Golovin is the real deal. As a Chelsea fan I'd love to see

SHORT THREAD on the upcoming #Helsinki summit b/n #Putin, @realDonaldTrump.
1. Amidst modest,if not low,expectations on the very deliverables of the meeting it's interesting to see public & back-channel efforts of #Moscow & #Washington to build the agenda for the summit.
2. @AmbJohnBolton 's visit to #Moscow was meant to lay the ground for the summit & it appears the parties have reached agreement on the basics. What #Putin & #Bolton were conveying to one another is important.

3. There's plenty of speculation over what the two will agree on in #Syria - the topic likely to dominate the summit. That said, given what's happening now b/n #Rus #US diplomats it's clear they been tasked to elaborate on broader agenda to make the talks look substantive.

Xhaka le marcó el gol a #SRB e hizo el águila albanesa. Tremenda provocación del #SUI a sus rivales.
Granit Xhaka es el #SUI que acaba de marcar el gol y su hermano Taulant representa a la Selección de #Albania. Ambos se enfrentaron en la Euro 2016 en #FRA.
¿Se acuerdan las Eliminatorias para la Euro 2016? Se enfrentaban #SRB y #Albania en #Partizán, todo era un caos entre ambas parcialidades y fue peor cuando el serbio Stefan Mitrovic bajó un drone con la bandera de la Gran Albania. Ahí comenzó el caos.

1) Most of #history is a total lie, designed by people wanting to infer meaning of historical events in a modern context, as a means to elicit a response from you which suits their needs.

This is a story about the #rothschilds from the early 20th century.

#QAnon #GreatAwakening
2) Even within this tweetstorm are probably a lot of missing nuances. Do tell your stories.

I will start after #WWI and the Treaty of Versailles. It never made sense. Why divide #Germany in these pieces and leave it's people impoverished? Isn't this a recipe for resentment?
3) Why did the #Germans, even though a foreign boot never shot a boot on their soil, make overtures of peace to end the #war, while they were poised to win?

Their objectives were met.

Why was the #USA brought into WWI? Why were large payments sent to #communist #Russia? #QAnon
