So ofc, I am still going on with my baking challenge, and here are
my lovely cherry cupcakes from Saturday~
I also went to the Archaeolgical Museum that day, I was allowed to take picuters, at least at one part of it.
The other part was a sepcial exhibition about skulls, so the more interesting part,
but it was forbidden to take photos in there, unfortunately.
I loved this exhibition, idk I have something with skulls, their fascinating.
They had a glass skull (google that, there's interesting myths concerning the end of the world about it) and a crystal skull, asian skulls, african skulls, european skulls, american skulls, adult skulls, phetus skulls, A LOT about different cultures and how they either prayed to skulls for help from the gods or feared them, some cultures build houses for skulls, some decorated huge bottles with them, others tattooed them and used them as sign for victory. Reeeeeally interesting!
But as I said, only pictures of the normal exhibition.
Bones from neanderthals, ans acessories from romans, etc etc!
The text is talking about a volcano that erupted in the Eiffel in 10 966 BC.
Because of that the whole area was covered with a 50meters layer of stone.
There was so much lava that the river Rhein became a lake for some time!
Ashes of a human
This was so small like, probably a pinky fingernail? Not much bigger really.Romans were amazing!
"If the Lions in Africa had their own Storytellers, the Hunters wouldn't always be the Winners."
This was a roman well. After they left their camp they burned it down completely, and threw dead animals, dirt, screws, and all kinds of stuff into the well, which made it unusable for others. It was so their enemies couldn't use it for themselves!
Pet dog skeleton. Found in the park in my town - I can see that park from my window! :D
It's supposed to be pretty old!
Deformed Skull of a European Woman.
When the Huns came to Europe, some kind of beauty ideal came as well - the skull form, a very long skull. Girls skulls were deformed with bandages so they'd become longer!
Part of the laboratory they put up to show how it's all done in archaeology.
They have microscopes and all set up there, and you can try things out yourself, and everything is well explained, for example anthropology or the radiocarbon dating method!
Wrong way around Piece sign?No actually not, this was once a window from a church!
Text: From the 8th Century on, Westphalia had Church windows made of glass.
This one is heavily weathered, therefore barely transparent. The Frame is made of blumb.
