This 14th Century Door At Exeter Cathedral, UK, Is Thought To Be The Oldest Existing Cat Flap

This 14th Century Door At Exeter Cathedral, UK, Is Thought To Be The Oldest Existing Cat Flap

A cat was paid a penny each week, to keep down the rats and mice in the north tower, and a cat flap was cut into the door below the astronomical clock to allow the cat to carry out its duties.
Records of payments were entered in the Cathedral archives from 1305 to 1467, the penny a week being enough to buy food to supplement a heavy diet of rodents

Bazaar Of Kashan Is An Old Bazaar In The Center Of The City Of Kashan, Iran

It is thought to have been built in the Seljuk era with renovations during the Safavid period. The bazaar has an interesting spatial structure, especially at its Timche-ye Amin od-Dowleh section, where a grand light well was built in the 19th century. The bazaar is still in use and is a few miles in total length. In the bazaar’s complex, there are several mosques, tombs, caravanserais, arcades, baths, and water reservoirs, everything built up in a different periods.

As we mentioned before, Pandas, human artistry, and talent know no bounds at all. I mean take a look at a single Roman coin, minutely etched with the proud countenance of Caesar, surviving through centuries, roughened by time but with the essence of its creator's craft still apparent. Just as a poet weaves stories through his words, ancient craftsmen told their tales through the etchings or the masterpieces that they built, allowing us a glimpse into their world, their society, and their lives.

The whole entire structure looks incredible, with incredible history behind it too. Glad it’s still standing as is and has held up well over the years. And to think, as with everything else featured in this article, all man made, perhaps the most incredible part of all.

Moving on to larger structures, we could perhaps think of the labyrinthine layout of the Colosseum's Basement in Rome, a marvel of engineering and a testament to the grandeur of the Roman Empire. Each of its complex designs and carvings exudes a feeling of seeing something grand, something bearing the weight of countless gladiatorial fights and public spectacles.

The little stream of Stock Beck meanders its way through the quaint town of Ambleside. Towering above it stand a whole array of houses dating from various periods; Victorian, Georgian and earlier are all represented in the slates and stones that make the region’s architecture so famous, and ever so iconic.

According to legend, the original bridge was built by the very Devil himself, as it was too difficult for mortals to build. The Devil agreed to build the bridge in exchange for the soul of the first being to cross the bridge. However he was tricked of his prize by a canny old woman, who threw bread across the bridge, which her dog ran after, thus becoming the first ‘being’ to cross the new bridge. In Switzerland there is a devil's brigde too, with a similar legend. The only difference was that the townfolk rushed a goat to cross the bridge, it's located in the Schöllenen.

Megalithic = Prehistoric civilizations. This crystal did not come from the area and is not unique to the region. It was buried with someone. When it was found between 2007-2010…there were 25 bodies buried there along with several crystal arrowheads. Archeologists believe that because if it’s rarity, someone very elite and wealthy sources and paid a craftsman handsomely to create this. For its time, it is considered technologically advanced.
