10 Must-Visit Sites in Cappadocia

The Cappadocia region in central Turkey has one of the most spectacular landscapes in the world. The deep valleys and soaring rock formations are dotted with numerous archaeological wonders. There are homes, chapels, tombs, temples, and entire subterranean cities harmoniously carved into the natural landforms and just waiting to be explored.

Derinkuyu is Cappadocia’s most thoroughly excavated and explored underground city. Visitors can explore eight levels of rooms, tunnels, and passageways, reaching depths of over 280 feet (85.34 meters). Guided walking tours of Derinkuyu allow visitors to explore the remains of underground stables, cellars, storage rooms, churches, kitchens, wineries, wells, a prisoner holding area, and living areas, as well as peeking into the gigantic ventilation shafts left behind by the original creators centuries ago.

Defacing of Cerne Abbas Giant by Amazon Provokes National Trust Wrath

By | October 25, 2020
Defacing of Cerne Abbas Giant

A movie PR team at Amazon have defaced a British monument to increase box-office takings for their new Borat film. The National Trust claims they willfully “defaced” the iconic English monument. The Cerne Abbas Giant is a 55-meter-high (180 ft) scheduled monument, a chalk hill figure located near the village of Cerne Abbas in Dorset, England. Depicting a nude male figure with an erection, and another large club in its right hand, the giant’s outline is formed by shallow trenches cut into the hill side which are backfilled with light chalk rubble.

Managed by the National Trust, English folktales suggest the giant is a deeply-ancient Celtic fertility god with the power to make childless women pregnant. However, historians and archaeologists say the first written reference to the giant only dates to 1694 AD, and that the Giant must have been created in the seventeenth-century. Either way, the figure is an iconic monument of British heritage and this is why Amazon’s defacing of the monument has caused outrage within the National Trust.

“Let food be thy medicine.” – Hippocrates

You’d be surprised how your knowledge of natural healing medicines can benefit from the wisdom of our ancient ancestors. Herbal medicine has been in use since at least the Paleolithic period. Archaeologists working in northern Iraq, for example, found a selection of plant pollen from mallows, grape hyacinth, ephedra, yarrow, groundsel and knapweed, plants they believe were used 60,000 years ago by Neanderthals for medicinal purposes. But herbal medicine continued to evolve.

Much later, about 3000-5000 years ago, some of the first written records related to herbal medicine came into existence. These early medicinal herbal records were created by Sumerians and carefully describe the names of 250 plants and 12 recipes for remedies. One example suggests aloe leaf can be used as a laxative.
