In the earlier age of gunpowder, let's just roughly define this as late 16th to early 19th centuries for the sake of argument, how widespread across cultures was the civilian ownership of firearms? It seems kind of a unique part to America, and to a lesser extent colonial Africa.

How did different cultures adapt and react to the adoption of guns in daily life?

>have an arranged marriage
>still openly fuck prostitutes/concubines even if your wife knows

can someone explain why the nobility and aristocrats of the past used to do this? whats the point of the arranged marriage if you're going to be unfaithful anyway?

England In the HYW

No.4160587 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
How did England do so well for most of the HYW? They were smaller than France, poorer than France and had a lower population than France.
Yet for most of the war, England held considerable territory In France without France holding anywhere In England.
Why weren't the English counter-invaded successfully?
I know they lost In the end, but they did pretty well all things considered.
Also please refrain from turning this thread into a nationalistic debate between Englishmen and French

Hello /his/. Can we have a thread where we talk about Neolithic scripts in western europe?

The whole no europeans had writing before the romans stick always rang false to me and so I decided to do a little research. I found that, contrary to popular opinion, there are infact numerous instances of symbols, pictographs and proto-writing across a number of different sites dating back at least 5000 years. However time and time again they are dismissed as "doodles".

Why is there no serious research into this and what does /his/ think about the possibility of early writing in neolithic europe?

Why are countries with warm climates generally less successful than ones with a colder climate? Surely it should be the other way around.
