What happened to the Romano-British after the Anglo-Saxon invasions? Were they genocided, forced to migrate to Brittany or assimilated?
They assimilated quite quickly. Remarkably quickly. I have a theory that they were so used to Roman rule that they were actually eager to just be ruled by the Saxons and stop being independent.
Leaving the options open for graduate school and work/studying abroad, what are the kinds of careers in Anthropology of Religion?
1) Training further Anthropologists of Religion at a top tier research University.
2) Teaching at a community college (requires the same level of effort as 1, and you only discover you're this shit after 10 years of Doctoral work).
3) Dying for the church / the revolution in central America.
>If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use was the rule?
I'm not implying that. I'm actually saying we don't get to choose anything. It doesn't matter if you follow rules or if you think you're above them. We're all stuck in the same game
Why was Joseph so shit at everything?
/his/ I need songs that reference historical events, or has ideas that match a historical issue, or people/figures from history, but these songs can't be written specifically about the item.
Why do we humans keep going on even though we all will eventually succumb to death?
I'm sick of this

How common was the use of firearms in Sengoku era Japan?
Thousands upon thousands of them were made. Nobunaga made them one of the most crucial parts of his army. He was however very wise to directly control the factories that produced them so his enemies could never get a hold of more than he had.
The Shimazu were also pretty famous for using guns by luring their opponents into crossfire. Satsuma became one of the leading gun manufacturers in Japan in the late Sengoku Jidai.
A fuck ton of firearms were used in the battle of Sekigahara. Also pretty sure it saw the first usage of cannons in Japan.
We all know how by 1600's Japan was closed to all but even so, they used guns a lot, even though they made improvements on design (for example, lacquer boxes for hiding the wick from wind or rain), they never made/used/discovered flash powder they had trouble firing under humid conditions very up to the 1700's so many commanders didnt want them for being non practical.
Also the love for tradition played a major part in keeping traditional weapons over modern stuff
What does /his/ think about Distributism? It's an obscure economic ideology that was created in the late 19th and early 20th century by the Catholic Church which aimed to be a third alternative to Capitalism and Socialism
Based on the tiny amount of study I've done it seems really incomplete. The Church was its primary driver, along with GK Chesterton and a variety of other Catholic intellectuals. It certainly doesn't seem to have the robust thought behind it that communism and capitalism have.
That said, as a Catholic myself I'm naturally intrigued. I think it's still sort of lying there waiting for someone with the right intellectual rigor to more thoroughly flesh it out. Maybe that will happen now in the age of Francis.
Utopianism of the anarchist variety and one that could only be introduced and maintained in our time with great violence - which is why given its origins is more a curiosity rather than a serious proposal.
Whats more our globalized and technolgical advanced economy has destroyed the standards and expecations that could allow such a system to be viable
Anyone can help me identify this? Got it cheap today on a garage sale, I don't think the owner realised how valuable such things are and just dumped it with the rest of old stuff.
Why is Mary Tudor known as "Bloody Mary" for ordering the execution of 283 people, when Elizabeth I ordered the execution of 300+ and isn't given the same moniker?
Which of his documentaries is your favorite, /his/? Excited for his upcoming Vietnam War series?
I think my favorite has to either be the Prohibition one, or the Civil War. Still need to finish Jazz & the West.
>Which of his documentaries is your favorite, /his/?
None. His sentimentalising is ahistorical.
>Excited for his upcoming Vietnam War series?
God no. It will further the ignorance of RVN/DRVN/PRG/NFL politics, and ensure a complete ignorance of the PLAF, PAVN and ARVN's engagements.
If I wanted to watch "Americana, the it ain't me edition" I would put on some creedence while masturbating to Rambo 1.
Well knowing Ken Burns he'll start in 1944 with the "OSS was democratising Vietnam from within and we betrayed them, therefore we started the Vietnam war before there was a Vietnam war, Ho Chi Minh was a democrat" bullshit.
One episode for the advisors.
So at least Episode 3.
Prepare for the deliberate and political misuse of highly political sectarian songs in order to inculcate sentimentality in US viewers who have no conception of social history.
I cry everytime
It's worse than that. The U.S. at one point (re: for like 3 years) backed him and told the British to accept and agreement and move on.
But Mossedegh fucked around on the issue continuously, rescinding offers he made, so he could hold onto power.
Mossadegh recieves the most underserved admiration of the 20th century, except for Maybe Hallie Selasie.
What lessons are there to be learned from the Prussian military that still apply today? Is there anything they did better than we do now?
Have you ever been spooked before?
When I realized the only true deity is death and life is meaningless and devoid of inherent compassion
it's called growing up
