Why built the Great wall of China?

Why built the Great wall of China?

Semeiko was Vladimir, chief of staff of the FSA, honorary doctorate Brussels University, 07.11.2006

Says the President of the Academy of fundamental Sciences Andrey tyunyaev:

As you know, North of the territory of modern China, there was another, much more ancient civilization. This is repeatedly confirmed by archeological discoveries made in particular, in Eastern Siberia. Impressive evidence of this civilization, comparable to the Arkaim in the Urals, not only is still not well studied and understood world history, but never received a proper evaluation in Russia itself. As for the so-called “Chinese” walls, then talk about it as about the achievements of ancient Chinese civilization is not quite legitimate. Here to confirm our scientific correctness it is enough to cite only one fact. LOOPHOLES in large parts of the wall are NOT DIRECTED TO the NORTH AND SOUTH! And this is clearly evident not only in the most ancient, the reconstructed sections of the wall, but even on recent photosgrafik and in the works of Chinese figure.

Earlier by the Chinese themselves was a discovery about the ancient Chinese writing another nation. There is already published work showing that these people were Slavs Aryans.

So, who built the great wall, which today is called the Chinese? Whom and who was she protecting?

And my collection of photos on this topic.

Myths and facts

The Dzong is situated at an altitude of 1200 meters above sea level in a valley where two main rivers of Bhutan, the Pho Chu and Mo Chu. Punakha is built on a hilly promontory. The rock rises above the river to a height of 10-storey building and stretched a length of 300 meters. The building looks like a big ship.

To the monastery are two of a number of steep steps. On both sides of the huge gate, studded with steel rivets, are little tunnels pierced in the wall of the colon. Above them are seen the narrow holes through which the monitored surroundings. Nestled in a mountain valley, cut off from all sides by winter snows and summer floods, Punakha looks absolutely impregnable. For all history of existence of this jonga no one could win. The Bhutanese, having sat behind the walls of this citadel, was challenged throughout Tibet and other invaders.

In 1907 there was crowned Ugyen wangchuck Continue reading

Notre Dame de Paris

Notre Dame de Paris

The history of the Cathedral

The term “Gothic” (from the name of the Germanic tribe is ready) emerged in the Renaissance. Gothic called any art which did not conform to classical antiquity forms. In art history it is customary to distinguish early, Mature (high) and late(“flamboyant”) Gothic.

Among the cathedrals of early Gothic architecture the most majestic and, of course, the famous Notre Dame de Paris (Notre Dame Cathedral). The construction of the Cathedral on île de La Cité was begun in the XII century on the initiative of the Paris Bishop Maurice de Sully. and lasted nearly 170 years. The first stone was laid by the king Louis VII in 1163 G.

During this period the Romanesque style gradually gave way to Gothic. It is the synthesis of two architectural styles, the Notre-Dame de Paris owes its unique appearance. This is not a squat Romanesque Church, but not yet soaring Gothic Church.

But still new style prevails: in the contours of the Cathedral reign of vertical and pointed forms. Thanks to tapering upwards wall niches and narrow Windows with tracery columns, Cathedral “flows”.

Especially plastic nature of the architecture of Notre Dame expressive in Eastern Continue reading
