Henry A. Otero (Hanko9)131,174The HISTORY® original series Vikings transports us to the brutal and mysterious world of Ragnar Lothbrok _(Travis Fimmel)_, a Viking warrior and farmer who yearns to explore—and raid—the distant shores across the ocean. His ambition puts him at odds with local chieftain Earl Haraldson _(Gabriel Byrne)_, who insists on sending his raiders to the impoverished east rather than the uncharted west. When Ragnar teams up with his boat builder friend Floki _(Gustaf Skarsgard)_ to craft a new generation of intrepid ships capable of conquering the rough northern seas, the stage is set for conflict. But for all its warfare and bloodshed, Vikings is also a story of family and brotherhood, capturing the love and affection between Ragnar and his wife, Lagertha _(Katheryn Winnick)_, a respected warrior in her own right. It is the tale of Ragnar’s brother Rollo _(Clive Standen)_, a fierce fighter who simmers with jealously; of Earl Haraldson’s wife Siggy _(Jessalyn Gilsig)_, a dutiful beauty who may be less than loyal; and of the monk Athelstan _(George Blagden)_, whose Christian morals clash with the Vikings’ pagan society. As ambition and innovation rattle a civilization, these characters will be put to the test—and their way of life will never be the same again. Vikings was created and written by Michael Hirst _(Elizabeth, The Tudors)_. Vikings, HISTORY's first scripted series, premieres Sunday 3.3.13 at 10/9c. http://history.com/vikings Add the +Vikings Circle Page to your TV Show circles for show updates and...

"The development of new technologies and techniques, combined with the increasingly interdisciplinary approach of archaeological investigation, are producing results that, for the archaeologist of 20 years ago, might have been the stuff of science fiction. Who would have known then that scientists would resurrect in startling detail an entire ancient Roman town after only fractional excavation? And who would have known that thousands of people from nearly every corner of the world would be able to 'walk' through that town without ever physically setting foot within?"

Europe during the ice age

According to a new simulation, the population of Europe dropped from 330 thousand to just 130 thousand during the last ice age.

These pictures show the population density at various times, starting 27,000 years ago - that's why it says "27 ky", meaning "27 kiloyears".

As it got colder, the population dropped, reaching its minimum 23,000 years ago.  Things started warming up around then, and the population soared to 410 thousand near the end of the ice age, around 13,000 years ago.

You can see the coast of Spain, Italy and Greece continued to have 23 to 20 people per hundred square kilometers.  But the population got pushed out of northern Europe, and even dropped in places like central Spain.  The black dots are archaeological sites where we know there were people.

Europe during the ice age

According to a new simulation, the population of Europe dropped from 330 thousand to just 130 thousand during the last ice age.

These pictures show the population density at various times, starting 27,000 years ago - that's why it says "27 ky", meaning "27 kiloyears".

As it got colder, the population dropped, reaching its minimum 23,000 years ago.  Things started warming up around then, and the population soared to 410 thousand near the end of the ice age, around 13,000 years ago.

You can see the coast of Spain, Italy and Greece continued to have 23 to 20 people per hundred square kilometers.  But the population got pushed out of northern Europe, and even dropped in places like central Spain.  The black dots are archaeological sites where we know there were people.

By comparison, there are now roughly 25,000 people per hundred square kilometers in England or Germany, though just half as many in France.  So, by modern standards, Europe was empty back in those hunter-gatherer days.  Even today the cold keeps people away: there are just 2,000 people per hundred square kilometers in Sweden.

If you're having trouble seeing the British isles in these pictures, that's because they weren't islands back then! - they were connected to continental Europe.

Of course these simulations are insanely hard to do, so I wouldn't trust them too much.  But it's still cool to think about.  

The paper is not free, but the "supporting information" is, and that has a lot of good stuff:

• Miikka Tallavaara, Miska Luoto, Natalia Korhonen, Heikki Järvinen and Heikki Seppä, Human population dynamics in Europe over the Last Glacial Maximum, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, http://www.pnas.org/content/early/2015/06/17/1503784112.abstract

Abstract: The severe cooling and the expansion of the ice sheets during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM), 27,000–19,000 y ago (27–19 ky ago) had a major impact on plant and animal populations, including humans. Changes in human population size and range have affected our genetic evolution, and recent modeling efforts have reaffirmed the importance of population dynamics in cultural and linguistic evolution, as well. However, in the absence of historical records, estimating past population levels has remained difficult. Here we show that it is possible to model spatially explicit human population dynamics from the pre-LGM at 30 ky ago through the LGM to the Late Glacial in Europe by using climate envelope modeling tools and modern ethnographic datasets to construct a population calibration model. The simulated range and size of the human population correspond significantly with spatiotemporal patterns in the archaeological data, suggesting that climate was a major driver of population dynamics 30–13 ky ago. The simulated population size declined from about 330,000 people at 30 ky ago to a minimum of 130,000 people at 23 ky ago. The Late Glacial population growth was fastest during Greenland interstadial 1, and by 13 ky ago, there were almost 410,000 people in Europe. Even during the coldest part of the LGM, the climatically suitable area for human habitation remained unfragmented and covered 36% of Europe.

An interstadial is a warmer period - and by the way, what I'm calling an "ice age" should really be called a glacial.  I did this just to see how many people correct me without reading my whole post.  (Actually I'm doing it in a feeble attempt to sound like a normal person.)___

Scientist announces we have entered the Sixth Mass Extinction Event

"There is no longer any doubt: We are entering a mass extinction that threatens humanity's existence.

That is the bad news at the center of a new study by a group of scientists including Paul Ehrlich, the Bing Professor of Population Studies in biology and a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment. Ehrlich and his co-authors call for fast action to conserve threatened species, populations and habitat, but warn that the window of opportunity is rapidly closing.

Scientist announces we have entered the Sixth Mass Extinction Event

"There is no longer any doubt: We are entering a mass extinction that threatens humanity's existence.

That is the bad news at the center of a new study by a group of scientists including Paul Ehrlich, the Bing Professor of Population Studies in biology and a senior fellow at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment. Ehrlich and his co-authors call for fast action to conserve threatened species, populations and habitat, but warn that the window of opportunity is rapidly closing.

"[The study] shows without any significant doubt that we are now entering the sixth great mass extinction event," Ehrlich said.

Although most well known for his positions on human population, Ehrlich has done extensive work on extinctions going back to his 1981 book, Extinction: The Causes and Consequences of the Disappearance of Species. He has long tied his work on coevolution, on racial, gender and economic justice, and on nuclear winter with the issue of wildlife populations and species loss.

There is general agreement among scientists that extinction rates have reached levels unparalleled since the dinosaurs died out 66 million years ago. However, some have challenged the theory, believing earlier estimates rested on assumptions that overestimated the crisis.

The new study, published in the journal Science Advances, shows that even with extremely conservative estimates, species are disappearing up to about 100 times faster than the normal rate between mass extinctions, known as the background rate.

"If it is allowed to continue, life would take many millions of years to recover, and our species itself would likely disappear early on," said lead author Gerardo Ceballos of the Universidad Autónoma de México."

[...]

"Hope for the future

Despite the gloomy outlook, there is a meaningful way forward, according to Ehrlich and his colleagues. "Avoiding a true sixth mass extinction will require rapid, greatly intensified efforts to conserve already threatened species, and to alleviate pressures on their populations - notably habitat loss, over-exploitation for economic gain and climate change," the study's authors write.

In the meantime, the researchers hope their work will inform conservation efforts, the maintenance of ecosystem services and public policy."

Thanks as always +Dirk Puehl!

#onthisday  in 1815, 200 years ago, the Battle of Waterloo was fought 9 miles south of Brussels in present-day Belgium, ending the Age of Napoleon and the Napoleonic Wars.

The Tiger was out of his den, gathered his veterans and marched into Belgium and of the armies of the Seventh Coalition to oppose him, only two were available on the spot. Blücher, already defeated at Ligny two days before and Wellington’s ragtag assembly of Dutch, Belgians, a variety of Germans, Scottish and probably more Irish than English Redcoats. And then all hell broke lose in a spot on the ridge south of Mont-Saint-Jean and the morne plaine below that now holds more myths and “what ifs” for a single day event than any other place on Earth. But read more on:

http://wunderkammertales.blogspot.de/2015/06/a-damn-close-run-thing-on-200th.html

Depicted below is arguably the most quoted painting of the Battle of Waterloo, Lady Butler’s vivid imagination of the charge of the Royal Scots Greys, “Scotland Forever!” from 1881.

If today’s food writers were reviewing it they’d probably call it “fusion”. The recipes show how cooking techniques and tastes had been profoundly influenced by eastern Mediterranean practices."

Out for a quick hike looking for some material for a custom shift knob. This guy was no help. Unless I happened to need every chipmunk in the forest chased down.

The Indus Script is the writing system developed by the Indus Valley Civilization and it is the earliest form of writing known in the Indian subcontinent. The origin of this script is poorly understood: this writing system remains undeciphered, there is no agreement on the language it represents, no bilingual texts have been found thus far and its connection with Indian writing systems proper (e.g. Brahmi, Devanagari and Bengali script) is uncertain. This is the main reason why the Indus Valley Civilization is one of the least known of the important early civilizations of antiquity.

The major gateway for modern humans out of Africa may have been Egypt, a new genetic analysis suggests. This finding may help scientists reconstruct how humans evolved as they wandered across the globe.
