Hundreds of rock carvings - petroglyphs - have been discovered in western Maharashtra, India. . . ‘The way the petroglyphs have been drawn, and their similarity to those found in other parts of the world, have led experts to believe that they were created in prehistoric times and are possibly among the oldest ever discovered’[...] But this begs the question of why some of the petroglyphs depict animals like rhinoceroses and hippos which aren't found in India. Did the people who created them migrate to India from Africa? Or were these animals once found in India?’ . . . #symbol #art #design #architect #culture #ancient #india #history #animals #prehistoric #culture #old #travel #africa #african #animals #bbc #news #ancientoutlook

Romulus founded the city of Rome in 753BC when he became king. Over 700 years later, Octavian formed the Roman Empire and was offered the title ‘Romulus’. While he liked to be associated with the morals and religious characteristics of Romulus, he did not want to be seen to be trying to be a ‘king’ ๐Ÿคด and so rejected it in favour of ‘Augustus’ Caesar. . . . #rome #roman #history #ancient #classics #royal #name #literature #quote #instaquote #ancientoutlook

In AD 832 Pictish King Oengus ll led his army in battle against King Æthelstan’s army of Angels and Saxons. . According to legend, on the day of the battle, a large cross cloud formation was visible against a bright blue sky. . The cross was associated with St Andrew, who had been crucified on a similar style of diagonal cross at the end of the first century.
