Been going through an art slump lately, I tried to get out of it by doodling a cute hipster Velma. Because it is around the time when I’m sick of summer and start looking forward to fall and sweaters…
Sooooo….I think I found one of the several Halloween costumes I’ll be doing this year. Who want to be a Hipster Scooby Gang?
A mash up of Fleetwood Mac’s “Rhiannon” and Sia’s “Breathe Me.”
I think C0nur will appreciate this.
real life buried treasure
In April 2010, Dave Crisp was using his metal detector in a field near Frome, Somerset, where he had previously found Roman coins, when he came across a strange signal and uncovered the top of what he thought was a Roman bronze coin hoard in a pot. Being a responsible sort of metal detectorist he immediately contacted his local Finds Liaison Officer who was able to excavate the pot in situ and discovered it contained some 52,500 coins dating from the 3rd century AD - the largest single hoard of Roman coins found anywhere in Britain.
Of the 52,503 coins found, 44,245 have been identified. Of the identifiable coins, 14,788 were minted under the central Roman Empire, 28,377 were minted under the breakaway Gallic Empire, and 766 were minted under the Britannic Empire of Carausius, as shown in the table below. About 5% of the coins identified so far are from the period of Carausius, who ruled Britain from 286 to 293, and the hoard includes five silver denarii issued by Carausius, which were the only type of silver coin to be struck anywhere in the Roman Empire at that time
Why hasn’t this been reblogged a billion times with people going “cool” and “awesome” and stuff? WHY?
