anthropology-of-time

Marc Bloch coined a memorable phrase to sum up the attitude supposedly held by medieval men towards time: ‘a vast indifference to time’. Chroniclers, who were sparing with dates, supposedly expressed this indifference in vague terms: 'at the time then’, 'meanwhile’, and 'a little after’. Above all, at the level of the collective mentality, past, present, and future were mixed together in a fundamental confusion. This confusion was particularly obvious in the persistence of collective responsibilities, which were a clear expression of primitivism. All living men bore equal responsibility with Adam and Eve for the Fall, all contemporary Jews bore equal responsibility for the Passion of Christ, and all the Muslims bore equal responsibility for Mahomet’s heresy. As has been observed, the crusaders at the end of the eleventh century did not think that they were going to punish the descendants of Christ’s executioners, but the executioners themselves.
—  Jacques Le Goff - Medieval Civilization

Shave your vagina you fucking disgusting ugly hippie. You're not cute at all, you're probably a virgin, you're hideous, anthropology is a waste of time. Go make out with your pillow, the only love you'll ever find.

I’m sorry for whatever happened to you that made you so filled with hate, or that made you think it was a good idea to send such an ugly message to a stranger. I’m sending you love in the hopes that you can turn all of this negativity into something much more positive. If you are struggling with anything you can always message me instead of spreading your misery like this

IRON AGE BRITAIN

The British Iron Age is the conventional name used in the archaeology of Great Britain, when referring to the main island and its smaller islands. This Age lasted from the first significant use of iron for tools and weapons in Britain, to the Romanisation of the southern half of Britain, ie- 1200 BC to 100 AD.

Though life was peaceful, there was a warrior culture that protected tribal lands.

Metalworking an textiles had progressed to a state of finely crafted practicality.

People lived a rural life, including some who lived beside rivers, lakes an the sea

Tribal warfare occurred, and 3 roman invasions, with the first one being repelled.

This is a wild boar that was made by British Celts over 2000 years ago.

The Brythonic language was spoken in Britain by its native Celtic tribes, although there were tribal variations of this, with those in south-west Britain speaking Cornish up to 500 AD, where after Old English came to replace.
