Peranakan are descendants of Han Chinese men and Malay women

No.12292364 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Peranakan in Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia are descendants of southern Han Chinese men and Malay women. Genetic tests showed May female contribution to Peranakab genomes while Han male genomes predominated.

Tracing the DNA profiles of 177 Chinese Peranakan's reveal a mixed ancestry.

How did the Qing tame the steppenigs so well?

No.12215878 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
They completely decimated the Dzungars, domesticated the Mongols, Uyghurs, and Tuvans, and made the remaining steppenigs their tributaries. Until Russia took over Central Asia, the entire steppe was pretty much kneeling to manchv bvlls.

Stone Hedge first Name "heaven"

Stone Hedge first Name "heaven":

After this I looked, and, behold, a door (avenue) was opened in heaven (stonehenge): and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither (north), and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter. And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne (mishkan) was set in heaven (stonehenge), and one (heelstone) sat on the throne (mishkan). And he (heelstone) that sat was to look upon like a jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow (heelstone ditch) round about the throne (mishkan), in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne (mishkan) were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders (24 fossils) sitting, clothed in white raiment (the chalk); and they had on their heads crowns of gold. And out of the throne (mishkan) proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning (brass altar) before the throne (mishkan), which are the seven Spirits of God (7 gold relics). And before the throne (mishkan) there was a sea of glass (the channel) like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne (mishkan), and round about the throne (mishkan), were four beasts full of eyes (heelstone eyeholes) before and behind. And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle (heelstone pareidolia). And the four beasts had each of them six wings (4 heelstone, 2 mishkan) about him; and they were full of eyes (heelstone eyeholes) within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, LORD God Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. And when those beasts give glory and honour and thanks to him (heelstone) that sat on the throne (mishkan), who liveth for ever and ever, The four and twenty elders (24 fossils) fall down before him (heelstone) that sat on the throne (mishkan),...

Local history thread

No.12232058 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
As i see we mostly discuss about world history ere. But what about YOUR local history? Where do you live? Where you come from? And historically speaking, was your hometown/area interesting?

Let's start with mine: i came from a rural area in eastern Liguria, so my local history is mostly tied with the history of the Republic of Genova

My area was mostly under the control of one of the major families of medieval/early modern Genoa: the Fieschi, a rural aristocratic family, leader of the Genoese Guelf faction (opposed to urban nobility leaded by the Doria family, mostly of the Ghibelline side)
They ruled as Counts of the city of Lavagna, and were busy on costant skirmishes with the city of Chiavari, a small city state located on the other side of the river, a city very loyal to Genoa, so much it was used by the capital as a counter-weight to the ambition of the Fieschis to rule the entire east coast

The Fieschi continued to be a thorn in the side of Genoa, untile in 1548 the house head, LUigi Fieschi, tried a coup against the de facto dictator of Genoa, Andrea Doria (yes, the dude from EUIV)
The coup faile so badly Luigi died in the street clashes, and after that Doria ordered the complete eradication of house Fieschi. All their members were exiled, and all their holdings in my homeland went under direct control of the Republic

Culture War

No.12232642 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
"Women's rights", "abortion", "secularism", "left wing", "conservative", etc.
When did this whole culture war begin? Has it always existed?
When reading about the past, one thing I notice that is seemingly absent are these constant, daily, discussions about every aspect of how we live our lives and our values. Did a Medieval father get into an argument with his young daughter over a woman's place in society? Did they argue over economic redistribution and shit like this? Would friends leave each other over disagreements pertaining to whether they believe in abortion or not?
When did we start defining everything about ourselves like this?
