The legend of Lady Carcas (French: Dame Carcas) is an etiological story about the origin of Carcassonne's name.

The legend takes place in the 8th century, during the wars between Christians and Muslims in the southwest of Europe. At the time, Carcassonne was under Saracen rule and Charlemagne's army was at the gates to reconquer the city for the Franks. A Saracen princess named Carcas ruled the Knights of the City after the death of her husband.

The siege lasted for five years. Early in the sixth year, food and water were running out. Lady Carcas made an inventory of all remaining reserves. The villagers brought her a pig and a sack of wheat. She then had the idea to feed the wheat to the pig and then throw it from the highest tower of the city walls.

Charlemagne lifted the siege, believing that the city had enough food to the point of wasting pigs fed with wheat. Overjoyed by the success of her plan, Lady Carcas decided to sound all the bells in the city. One of Charlemagne's men then exclaimed: "Carcas sonne!" (which means “Carcas sounds”). Hence the name of the city.

I’m going to try and share one picture for each day of my trip! Yesterday, I arrived in Berlin and took an incredible tour of the city. Of the many, many things I learned - one is how the Germans have a unique way of commemorating historic events. 📸 This piece of the wall is one of the last standing in all of Berlin. It is not celebrated, but remembered for the time in history it represents.

One of my favorite authors is #mariadoriarussell and in particular, A Thread of Grace is one of my favorite books ever. I love WWII books, biographies and fiction, and I love when an author explores a piece of important history with great storytelling, imagery and prose. Set in northern Italy, the book is about a network of the Italian resistance as they help Jewish people escape German persecution by hiding them in the mountains and countryside along a smuggling route. Literature at its best. The kind of book to snuggle down with, cup of hot chocolate or a pot of tea within reach!
Today I am updating my website which is kind of novel because most of the time I'm doing that for clients. I'm excited actually, feel my creative juices beginning to flow. Writing or digital, it all works for me!

"ЧЕЧЕНСКИЕ ГОРЫ" (@mountains_of_chechnya)

Селение Кезеной расположено к югу от озера, в нескольких километрах от него. Главной его достопримечательностью является крепость, возвышающаяся над селением – это крепость Алдам-Гези (Г1ези-Алдаман ков), развалины которой и сейчас видны на высокой скале.

Крепость состоит из цитадели, группы полуразрушенных зданий и жилой башни. Башня прямоугольная,  почти квадратная, высота ее сохранившихся стен – около семи метров.
Крепость Алдам-Гези расположена на высокой скальной площадке и обнесена каменной стеной. Внутри цитадели сохранился фундамент боевой башни. Комплекс, по всей вероятности, построен в XVI веке, а мечеть – в более позднее время. Это подтверждается и особенностями архитектурного стиля строений.  Если жилая башня построена в чисто вайнахском стиле: центральный опорный столб, угловые камни, связывающие стены, использование раствора, то архитектура мечети является чисто дагестанской.  Она, по всей вероятности,  была построена  после XVII века, то есть после распространения ислама в Чеберлое.

Жители Чеберлоя одними из первых среди чеченцев приняли ислам.

North America 158 years ago today: Raid on Harpers Ferry (18 Oct 1859) http://omniatlas.com/maps/northamerica/18591018/ The 1850s conflict in the US over slavery was not limited to Kansas. In 1859, the abolitionist John Brown and his followers attempted to start a slave revolt in Virginia by seizing the arsenal at Harpers Ferry. Although he was defeated, Brown's raid and his subsequent execution further polarized the nation. #northamerica #history #welovemaps #1850s #1859 #americanhistory #belize #canada #canadianhistory #confederacy #france #greatbritain #guatemala #kansas #maps #mexicanempire #mexicanhistory #mexico #october #october18 #oregon #unitedstates #vancouverisland #virginia #washington
