Puritan settlers chose to settle in this area over others they considered like Salem and Charlestown because of its access to fresh water, acquiring the land from English settler William Blackstone. Since then, water has played a crucial role in shaping the region and state. Towns were created and destroyed for water.

In , 11 Australian commandos , all white, disguised themselves as Malay fishermen by dyeing their skin brown and boarding a fishing boat. They sailed through 2, miles of Japanese-controlled ocean from Australia to Singapore. At one point they even traveled right alongside a Japanese warship without them noticing anything strange which was good, because none of the commandos could speak Malay.

They then took canoes right into Singapore Harbor, where they blew up seven Japanese ships before escaping. So racism is OK as long as you have plenty of bombs and canoes. Somehow, this totally worked, and she snagged the plans to a fort and the identities of some Confederate spies before ” escaping ” back to Union lines. Yet neither of her identities were allowed to vote. He found it in two Iraqi troops who were holding up the offensive.

Hughes was ordered to take them out.

Tourism was slow coming to this southern city but on the edge of the Sahara and a base for centuries to the nomadic Mrazig tribe many now come here to experience the Bedoin cultures of the Sahara which are generally hard to pin down and which have few examples of their history in terms of food and architecture.

An Ancient Metal Humans Meet Metal Between seven and ten thousand years ago, our early ancestors discovered that copper is malleable, holds a sharp edge, and could be fashioned into tools, ornaments, and weapons more easily than stone, a discovery that would change humanity forever. This meeting of humans and metals would be the first step out of the Stone Age and into the ages of metals: Thus began the increased movement of elements and minerals out of their parent geological formations and into the air, soil, water, and living organisms by way of smelters, furnaces and mine tailings.

The first several thousand years of copper production contributed little to global or even local pollution. Copper is not very toxic in comparison to other metals and early humans used too little of it to begin concentrating it in soil, air, or water to the extent that it would affect human health or ecosystems. It appears that during the first few thousand years of its use, humans experiment with and learned techniques to utilize copper.

As they got better at working with it, civilizations became more complex, which in turn often enabled better copper-working technology. With this came expanded use of copper and a greater movement of copper into our everyday environment. Gold and copper’s distinct colors and existence in pure form made it easy for our early ancestors to distinguish the two metals from other minerals and stones they came across.

There is disagreement among archaeologists about the exact date and location of the first utilization of copper by humans. Archaeological evidence suggests that copper was first used between 8, and 5, B. Archeologists have also found evidence of mining and annealing of the abundant native copper in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan in the United States dating back to 5, B. Native copper was likely used first, as it did not require any process to purify it.

It could have been hammered into shapes although it would have been very brittle.

Archaeologists analyze multiple clues to date and identify the pipe maker including a careful combination of archaeological site context, bowl style and form, pipe stem bore diameter, style and placement of the mark itself, and place of manufacture. We ask that if you have a nearly complete bowl from which a type can be determined, to use the Oswald typology, but there is also a field to record reference to another typology, should you prefer.

Marks also appear on pipe stems. Marks were produced by molds that left incuse negative or relief raised impressions Oswald

Etymology[ edit ] There are several legends explaining how Bellary got its name. The first is that a few devout travelling merchants halting in Bellary, could not find a Shiva Linga for their worship. They then installed a balla a measuring cup or seru used to measure grain upside down as a Shiva Linga and worshiped it. Eventually, that place was turned into a temple dedicated to Balleshwara or Shiva, which became distorted to Malleshwara, and thus Bellary derives its name from this temple.

Balla-ari means ‘enemy of Balla’ ari — enemy in Sanskrit. History of Bellary Core area of Western Chalukya monuments, roughly corresponding to Sindavadi Numerous neolithic archaeological sites have been discovered around Bellary, such as the ash mounds at Sanganakallu, Budhihal, Kudithini, Tekkalakote, Hiregudda and Kupgal. The Sanganakallu settlement, spread over an area of 1, acres 4. Bellary was ruled in succession by the Mauryas , the Satavahanas , the Pallavas , the Kadambas , the Badami Chalukyas , the Rashtrakutas , the Kalyani Chalukyas , the Southern Kalachuryas , the Sevuna Yadavas , and the Hoysalas , and also ruled briefly by the Cholas during the wars between Kalyani Chalukyas and the Cholas.

Bellary itself was ruled by the family of Hande Hanumappa Nayaka , a Palayagara of the Vijayanagara rulers.

Colonial American beverages Hot, non-alcoholic Coffee, tea and chocolate were popular non-alcoholic hot beverages during American Colonial times. These imports were expensive, but not beyond the reach of the average person. Folks too poor to afford the real thing brewed hot beverages from herbs, flowers, bark, roots, and woody stems.

White Salt-Glazed Stoneware Defining Attributes A salt-glazed, thinly potted, gray, tan or white-bodied non-porous stoneware that is generally identifiable by its characteristic pitted “orange peel” surface. The tan or gray pasted wares are white slipped dipped to make them appear whiter and often have a characteristic brown oxide coating on hollow form rims, handles, and spouts—areas where the slip did not adhere very well. Chronology White salt glaze stoneware was manufactured for a hundred year period between circa , although it was most popular from circa Edwards and Hampson The versatility and durability of white salt-glazed stoneware allowed it to quickly replace tin glazed earthenware and to serve as an affordable substitute for porcelain.

This pottery was the most common dining and tea ware used in England during the mid th century, only to be replaced in popularity by creamware in the s. Manufacturing and decorative techniques, used in combination with vessel form, can be used to narrow the production range for any given vessel or sherd Tables 1 and 2.

Richmond, Virginia, has played a prominent role in the history of tobacco dating back to Colonial times. From its famed “Tobacco Row” where massive brick tobacco warehouses and factories once dotted the city landscape to being the manufacturing home of many once beloved household pipe blends like “J. G. Dill’s Best” and “Edgeworth Ready-Rubbed”, the city is steeped in the tobacco tradition.

Artifacts as time markers Pipe stem dating The clay pipe industry expanded rapidly as tobacco smoking gained popularity in both England and America. Historical archeologists excavating English colonial sites often find pieces of white clay smoking pipes on their sites. In the s J. Harrington studied the thousands of pipe stems excavated at Jamestown and other colonial Virginia sites, noticing a definite relationship between the diameter of the pipe stem bore—or hole—and the age of the pipe of which it had been part.

This change in diameter may have occurred because pipe stems became longer through time, requiring a smaller bore. Louis Binford later devised a mathematical formula to refine Harrington’s method Deetz This dating technique only applies to pipe stems manufactured in England between approximately and Historical archeologists do not rely on pipe stem fragments as the only source for determining a site’s history.

They also consider historical documents and other material culture recovered from the site—such as ceramics, glass, metal artifacts, faunal and botanical samples, and features—to determine its occupation and use.

In , the company became the Imperial Schrade Corporation. In , Imperial Schrade’s New York manufacturing plant closed, and all production shifted overseas. Dating the American Imperial knives produced between and is relatively simple. After , the Imperial tang stamps were discontinued and replaced by the Schrade name. Open the main blade of the pocket knife completely, and take note of the stamping marked at the base of the blade where it connects with the handle. Imperial used a number of different stampings between and , but the tangs were always stamped.

Check the identification guide. Knives produced between and bore tang stamps that read “Imperial Knife Co. Identify Imperial knives produced under the “Hammer brand” by the tang stamp that bears the name as well as the image of a muscled arm bearing a hammer. These knives were produced between and From till , there were only minor changes in tang script design, making the later knives more difficult to distinguish between decades.

Consult the guidebook to determine handle materials. Imperial knives were made with a number of different handle materials including bone, celluloid and black composition.
