What is happening at LivingHistorySites this summer?

Several new and exciting things! We are looking forward to exploring history on our summer 2014 trip to South Carolina where we will be reviewing various sites in Columbia, the capital of South Carolina and coastal Charleston.....

We are also switching LivingHistorySites.com to a WordPress site that will allow you to search our content easier. Recategorizing information for historical sites, great dining locations and all the cool things to do in a particular location. We will have lists by city and by state, with suggested "things to do" and "things to see" packed with interesting tidbits and a realistic timeline!

Tutankhamun was one of the last kings of Egypt’s 18th Dynasty and ruled during a crucial, turmoil-filled period of Egyptian
history.  The boy king died under mysterious circumstances around age 18 or 19, in the ninth year of his reign (1323 B.C.).

 

Exploring Southwest Virginia

Southwest VA

LivingHistorySites.com is busy exploring Southwest Virginia, bringing the best historical reviews to our readers!

Wise County Virginia, Appalachian Mountains

LivingHistorySites.com found the Southwest Virginia Museum to be a jewel in the Appalachian and a great place to explore the history of coal mining in Virginia along with the history of Wise county. Just a few blocks from the Harry W. Meador Jr. Coal Museum, so be sure to visit both. 

Just up the road in Wise, stop by Mosby's Restaurant for a great meal in a Civil War setting. Dedicated to Colonel John Singleton Mosby, one of Jeb Stuart's scouts, the restaurant has Civil War artifacts everywhere and has been voted Best of Wise County in many categories!

As always, be sure and tell them that Living History Sites sent you!

Farmer builds model of Biblical temple

Biblical Temple Model in EnglandIn England, a retired farmer from Norfolk has spent more than 30 years building an enormous scale model of a Biblical temple, that will not be done in his lifetime!

The pensioner has hand-baked and painted every clay brick and tile and even sculpted 4,000 tiny human figures to populate the courtyards.

Historical experts believe the model is the best representation in the world of what the Jewish temple actually looked like and it has attracted thousands of visitors from all over the globe.

Read the entire article here. If we ever go to the Norfolk area of England, be sure that LivingHistorySites.com will check this model of the Bibilcal temple out and report from the field!
