⭕ Lost cities #3 – Muziris: did black pepper cause the demise of India's ancient port? In the first century BC it was one of India’s most important trading ports, whose exports – especially black pepper – kept even mighty Rome in debt. But have archaeologists really found the site of Muziris, and why did it drop off the map?

"The house built by a righteous man is destroyed by a fool" - A Sumerian proverb written on this tablet by a student scribe around 4000 years ago in Iraq 🖊
Thanks to PhD student in Assyriology @mesopotamiangeorge for this brilliant post, see the rest of the caption here:
You may have seen some of the Sumerian proverbs I've written out, but this is the real deal - a small collection of proverbs written down by a student scribe around 4000 years ago in southern Iraq. The clay tablet that these proverbs are written on is almost exactly the same size as my phone, and the writing carries on over to the other side, where the proverb quoted above is written.
The proverb above in Sumerian is this: "E lu zida mundu'e lu lula mungul." Sumerian is the world's oldest written language, but the diversity of sources that have survived the millennia allow us to understand something of what it may have sounded like all those years ago.
The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge. A little trip to see a very good exhibition inspired by Virginia Woolf. Wonderful paintings by Gwen John, Dame Laura Knight and Cora Carrington, to name but a few. The building itself is glorious and houses fabulous galleries of millions of wonderful antiquities and art. Well worth a visit. The Woolf exhibition is open until 9th December and it’s all FREE!! Brilliant in this day and age. #virginiawoolf#exhibition @fitzmuseum_uk #gallery#museum#antiquities#art#cambridge#brilliant#greatdayout#greatdayoutwithfriends
