Oaxaca
The Oaxaca Valley is located along the Pacific coast in the southwest corner of Mexico. Oaxaca was first inhabited in prehistory by hunter gatherers making their way down from the north. Since then, it has been the home of many great civilizations. (by Paul)
Nations of the Woodlands: Tribes of the American East
Overview of the most important tribes of the American East, including the Iroquis, Shawnee, and the Ottawa. (by Hope)
Pontiacs Rebellion: The Prince and The King
Pontiac, prince of the Ottawa tribe, clearly stated very early in the process that he expected to be treated like what he really was: a chief and prince of the Ottawas . (By Hope)
Neo Conservatism
Since the economic crises of the 1970s, a great shift in economic policy and ideology has occurred in several Western countries, most notably the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada. This paper endeavors to describe the neo-conservative approach to economic policy in the three mentioned countries, focusing on Canada. (by Decebal)
The Most Damaging Institutions in Chinese History: Eunuchs and Official Harem
While there were certainly other institutions that also caused great damages in various dynasties, two in particular stand out because their inherent nature leads to instability.
In all fairness, there were loyal and upright eunuchs as well as concubines who contributed to the welfare of the country. However, these were far and few... (By Snowybeagle)
How Far Had Lenin Achieved His Aims by the Time of His Death in 1924?
Lenin was the leader of the Bolshevik party and the head figure of the Russian revolution of 1917. During his reign from 1917 to 1924 he ruthlessly  pursued his aims toward the creation of a socialist workers' paradise with the help of his secret police. For this man the end justified the means and his idealism did not blind him from pragmatic solutions. (By Kristian Ola)
What happened with the Nahuatl-Speaking People after the Conquest of Mexico?
Most of us know the story: The Aztecs had a mighty empire, which in 1521 was destroyed by the Spaniards, creating the beginning of New Spain. The Aztecs civilization came abruptly to an end. As a corollary, most of us believe that the Aztecs, as a people and culture, disappeared as well. Suddenly, all Nahuas became Christianized and became Mexican Indians. (By Hugoestr)
Review: Historical Accuracy of Rome Total War
Before the release of the next Total War series, we take another look at the game Rome: Total War. The depiction of history is interesting, with both fine details present as well as blatant and probably purposeful errors. (by Invictus, Rider, Emp. Barbarossa)
This Month In History: October 2006
October 6, 891: Formosus, the Archbishop of Porto, was elected to the Papacy as successor of Stephen V.  Formosus' assumption was something of a surprise. He could look back on a distinguished, but also very checkered, career in the Church. Read on for more events... (by Komnenos)
Text: Adventures in the Unknown Interior of America by lvar Nez Cabeza de Vaca
"We saw three kinds of deer; rabbits and jackrabbits; bears and lions [panthers]; and other wild animals, including one [the opossum] which carries its young in a pouch on its belly until they are big enough to find food by themselves; but, even then, if someone approaches while they are foraging, the mother will not run before the little ones get into her pouch."

From the Editors:

We hope you've enjoyed this month's issue with the theme of Native American history. This edition, like the others, has been made possible due to contribution from our forum readers. We hope that you'll continue to support the magazine. If you are interested in writing for next month's edition, please contact one of the editors listed below.

I'd guess the city in question is Mayan; either Palenque or Tiqal.

Teotihuacan? Looks like the pyramid of Teotihuacan either.

We gave up your happiness
Your hope would be enough;
we couldn't find neither;
we made up sorrows for ourselves;
we couldn't be consoled;

Good articles. This is the thing I enjoy most about AE.

I wish I had patience to write something for this magazine. I got some themes in mind, something about Baltics most likely.

... A particularly informative edition of the magazine....i enjoyed the article by Kristian Ola concerning Lenin....
..once again, the diversity of topics never fails to interest me...
 
...i also think the idea of including primary texts and sources is an excellent move in the right direction....maybe it would be possible to include more of this in future editions??...
 
...as i believe this magazine is one of the best features on this site...and to be bold, maybe we could have even more content!!!....
 
..a very good job by all concerned....well done to everyone..

Well, Act of Oblivion (sorry, but I first wrote off 'Aelgifu'...)

Good to hear it is so.

Well, obviously it was mine [i'm playing the smart guy over here]...

You mean that two or three in one Edition? Defineitily it is possible, but I'd need links...

Wait, do you have an online link to the Chronicle by the Archbishop of Tyre, whatever-his-name-was-and-i-can-not-remember-right-now-guy...

Originally posted by AoO

I understand this as a sidenote showing that you are ready to write something for the Mag? We'd be happy to receive it.

Or the other enterpreteuring way is that we'd work more for you to read it... possible too, yet, we released this Issue so late because of the small amoutn of articles done for it (it seems that few people (exclude Hope from the list) were ready to write something even distantly connected to the Americas...)

But be ready, I have great plans and school is off on next Wednesday, on Thursday and Friday I'll yet hang out in the school and after it write something up...


BTW: A Test:

Guess what the next edition will be of? (you have three chances but we won't tell you the exact one, just if one of the three are correct or all wrong)

...Hello Rider...

 

..Concerning the sources, yes I did mean adding to the number although I do appreciate the extra work and the difficulty obtaining such texts..I just feel that the provision of more primary sources on the site would open up the chance for more members to read what history writing is 'made from'...

 

..My Crusades knowledge off the top of my head is pretty slim pickings, but I think it was William of Tyre you were referring to???.having said that, I just found this link to the online Medieval Source Book referring to William of Tyre.also by hitting the home page brings up a wealth of primary source texts.might of interest for later??Wink

 

http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/source/tyre-cde.html

 

..ha ha!!!.as for promoting my own possible contributions, I was not implying  any such thingEmbarrassed!!!!!!.however, yes I would like to do something more regularly but the addition of a new born baby son has practically made any form of concentred writing a huge task!!!..thats why I generally write at night as he is sound asleep for a couple of hours..!!!LOL

 

..good luck with the next edition, if you think I can contribute, by all means, hang me a carrot or beat me with a stick..Ouch!!!!

I personally don't like the formatting on the Sourcebooks, although I am aware of that. Yes, it was WIlliam of Tyre, anyways, his Chornicles' full version in Enlgish on the net is hard to find. The one on the Medieval Sourcebook is just some paragraphs.

good luck with the next edition, if you think I can contribute, by all means, hang me a carrot or beat me with a stick


What about a pen? Yes, you can contribute, and we really would appreciate it.
