Photo Album: Malbork Castle, overlooking the Nogat River, is the largest castle (by surface area) in the world and the largest red brick castle in Europe. It served as the headquarters of the Teutonic Order in Eastern Europe and is a classic example of the brick gothic Ordensburg fortress. It was completed by the Order in 1308. In 1945 during a World War II combat in the area, more than 50% of the castle was destroyed. Most of the castle as seen nowadays has been reconstructed and renovated during an ongoing restoration process that had started in 1960s, with focus on bringing the castle back to its original medieval shape. The Malbork Castle remains the largest brick building by area in Europe.

New street signs put Toronto's Indigenous history front and centre

The signs on some of Toronto’s best-known streets are getting a makeover, but the names they bear aren’t new — in fact, they’re thousands of years old. 

It’s a movement begun at the height of the Idle No More movement in 2013 by artists and activists Hayden King and Susan Blight through a project called Ogimaa Mikana. As part of an effort to reclaim Toronto’s Indigenous history, the two made stickers with Indigenous translations of Toronto street names, plastering them over the English signs. 

Now, three years later, “official” signs are cropping up across the city, with four of Toronto’s major streets now bearing signs with their Anishinaabe names. ​

The signs officially went up Friday as part of a joint initiative by Ogimaa Mikana and the Dupont by the Castle Business Improvement Area (BIA). 

Stuart Grant, chair of the BIA, told CBC News the group was inspired to bring the signs to their area after seeing the hand-made ones by Ogimaa Mikana online. After taking the idea to the city, Grant says, the group started work on the signs’ designs.

“These were the names thousands of years ago when the First Nations people were here,” Grant told CBC News.

“By doing this, it shows that the First Nations people are still here. We’re still on their land. We share it but we’re still on their land,” Grant said. 

On its website, Ogimaa Mikana says it hopes “to restore Anishinaabemowin place-names to  the streets, avenues, roads, paths and trails of Gichi Kiiwenging (Toronto).”

The group hopes the signs will expand throughout the city, “transforming a landscape that often obscures or makes invisible the presence of Indigenous peoples.”

Figured I’d upload a few gifs of some of my favourite things in the game so far. The “card sprite” is one of the first enemies the player will encounter in Casino Castle Capers, the first area of the game, they don’t really want to hurt you, they just sort of walk around. The players walking sprites took a long time for me to do, so I’m pretty proud of it. The pirate slime, Captain No Beards most used monster minion, he’ll send tons of them to attack you! Up at the top is the (as of right now) finalised title screen, it took me a very long time to get that title screen looking like that and I love the way it turned out! It’s modelled after “yoshis island” and “sonic mania”’s main menus.

Medieval Castle Ruins Discovered under Gloucester Prison

Remains of a Norman castle were found buried under the basketball court of a prison in Gloucester, UK. The foundations were unearthed by archaeologists during a investigative survey of the area.

The castle, which dates to c. 1110, was the first castle built in Gloucester. The castle housed three chapels, two drawbridges and a royal chamber for both the King and Queen, and the architecture is thought to have resembled Canterbury Cathedral and the Tower of London. 

The castle was used as a city jail for two centuries before being demolished 1780 in order to build the prison complex which currently stands.
