“That is the end of this broadcast...”

With the ensuing threat of confrontation between the Eastern and Western Powers, the risk of nuclear warfare became of critical concern to UK officials, both governmental and institutional. The BBC has recently published a radio script that was discussed with the Government between 1973 and 1975 to be broadcast in the event of a radioactive attack.
Alcohol and the Agricultural Revolution
2/11/2012 5:06:30 PM

During the early Neolithic Period, over 10,000 years ago, human domestication of plants began in earnest, transforming the way human societies operate and paving the way towards civilisation we know today. This was generally conceived within academic circles and is the commonly held opinion of most people. There is evidence, however, that members of the Natufian culture, a society of the eastern Mediterranean region (Levant) in 13,000 BC, were cultivators of cereal crops many years before the supposed birth of agriculture. The reasoning, according to a paper published in the Journal of Archaeological Method and Theory, is that the ancient Natufians were hankering for a certain intoxicating beverage; beer.

The discovery of seventeen unlabeled wax cylindrical phonograph records at the Thomas Edison National Historical Park found within a hidden cache behind the cot of Thomas Edison in 1957 has revealed that they contain the recordings of personalities and key figures made between 1889 and 1890. Included within the records are the voices of Helmuth von Moltke, the German military strategist, various German and Hungarian singers and pianists and the only known surviving recording of Otto von Bismarck, the first Chancellor of the newly united German Reich.
