  • 9 Rare Historic Things You Won't Believe Existed

    From kinky furniture to ancient batteries here are rare historic things you won't believe existed! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #4 The Baghdad Battery In 1938, German archaeologist Wilhelm Konigwhile was on a dig just outside Baghdad in modern day Iraq when he found a five-inch-long clay jar containing a copper cylinder that encased an iron rod. The vessel had clear signs of corrosion. Testing revealed that an acidic agent like vinegar or wine had been inside the cylinder and the rod. The battery-like item has been dated to around 200 B.C., which is known as the Parthian era. The Parthians were a warrior society not noted for scientific achievement. Replicas of the Baghdad batteries can conduct electricity. Some experts think that the early Iraqis were using wine, vinegar,...

    (10 Aug 2016) LEAD IN The Iraqi National Museum has been restored following damage caused by the 2003 invasion and the Islamic State group. With help from the US, Italy and Japan national heritage dating back thousands of years is now back on display. STORY-LINE Dating back between 1800-613 BC, artefacts such as these could have been lost forever after Baghdad fell to U.S. military forces in 2003. The Iraqi Museum was exposed to crime such as theft and looting, but now many of these treasures have been retrieved and restored. "Most of its antiquities, ruins and furniture were smashed," explains Deputy Minister of Culture, Qais Hussein Rasheed. "We worked hard along with other friendly countries, mainly the U.S., Italy and Japan, to rehabilitate the museum.'' Iraqi officials freq...

    Doe-eyed and adorable Kheer Allah lives with his mother, father, two brothers and sister. Their "home" has no furniture and no modern appliances, except for an old television and radio sitting precariously atop a stack of used tires. There's no meat on this family's table. Home-baked pita bread is the staple in this beyond-poor household. School is out of the question too. Young Kheer Allah must work every day to help his family survive. Boy of Baghdad is the heartbreaking, and very real, story of a remarkable boy forced to grow up much too quickly, in a dangerous world gone mad with politics and fanaticism. One that has sadly ignored its most vulnerable citizens, its children.

We couldn't do anything; we couldn't get the children out and we could not find our way. Then, we saw a car explode next to us and the house was damaged."

People standing looking at tyre-made chairs LEADIN: A tyre repairer in Iraq is recycling tyres destined for the rubbish dump and transforming them into colourful pieces of furniture. Not only are Ahmed Hameed Hamza's creations popular with customers, they help avoid the tyres being burned and polluting the environment. STORYLINE: Looking at this pile of abandoned tyres you might thing you were at a rubbish dump or recycling plant. However these thick, grey pieces of rubber will soon be transformed into interesting pieces of furniture thanks to a tyre repairer with a creative eye. Ahmed Hameed Hamza is from the Diwanya province 80 miles (130 km) south of Baghdad, and here at his workshop he turns tyres into everything from chairs and clocks to pots and vases. ''We use outdated and leftover tyres to manufacture numerous kinds of furniture that could be useful for people. Instead of throwing abandoned tyres in the garbage or burning them, which will cause pollution, we decided to manufacture several kinds of furniture such as chairs and vases to make money and help others," explains Hamza. Hamza started making the tyre furniture as a way to make extra money on top of his regular day job fixing punctured tyres. Four chairs plus a small table costs 100,000 Iraqi dinars (USD $90) and a large vase is 15,000 Iraqi dinars (USD $40). Customer Shakir Jassim Oda is a big fan of the creations. ''It is really a nice idea to make different kinds of furniture from abandoned tyres which are in fact regarded trash that and will eventually cause environment contamination in the city. Now he (Hamza) turns them into nice and beautiful items which families could use as furniture. Thus, we come to buy some of them,'' he says. Cheap furniture such as this is particularly welcome in Iraq which is suffering severe financial problems because of plunging oil prices. Oil revenue makes up nearly 95 percent of the national budget. ==== You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/ed3765f585c213037b66cb8758ed1f99 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

From kinky furniture to ancient batteries here are rare historic things you won't believe existed! Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr #4 The Baghdad Battery In 1938, German archaeologist Wilhelm Konigwhile was on a dig just outside Baghdad in modern day Iraq when he found a five-inch-long clay jar containing a copper cylinder that encased an iron rod. The vessel had clear signs of corrosion. Testing revealed that an acidic agent like vinegar or wine had been inside the cylinder and the rod. The battery-like item has been dated to around 200 B.C., which is known as the Parthian era. The Parthians were a warrior society not noted for scientific achievement. Replicas of the Baghdad batteries can conduct electricity. Some experts think that the early Iraqis were using wine, vinegar, lemon or grape juice as an acidic electrolyte solution that could generate an electric current of about two volts. Whether these artifacts are truly batteries and what they were used for is still up for debate. #3 The Nebra Sky Disc The Nebra Sky Disc is such a spectacular representation of the universe that archeologists were once convinced it had to be a forgery. The Bronze age artifact was discovered in 1999 near the Ziegelroda Forest in Germany by two men who were exploring the forest with metal detectors. They sold the Sky Disc on the black market, where it was traded several times, gaining stature with each purchase. When archeologists finally got a good look at the Disc after a police sting, they were stunned by the Disc's beauty and size. They suspected it was a fake, since Bronze age people were believed to have been violent and brutal, with no understanding of the world around them. The Disc caused them to rethink their beliefs about the sophistication of ancient peoples. The huge disc is one foot across and weighs almost five pounds. The body is made of bronze, with several symbols made of gold. The symbols appear to be a sun, moon and several stars. The angles show the precise journey of the sun between summer and winter for the latitude in Nebra. This shows that Bronze age Europeans were aware of the movement of the stars and how it impacted their world. The Nebra Sky Disc is considered one of the greatest discoveries of the 20th century. #2 The James Ossuary The James Ossuary is a mysterious limestone bone box that bears an Aramaic inscription reading “James, son of Joseph, brother of Jesus.” Its discovery in 2002 shocked the world, but archeologists cannot agree on whether the box is real or fake. If the James Ossuary does contain the bones of James, brother of Jesus, it will be the oldest recorded reference to Jesus Christ. The Ossuary dates from the time period around Jesus' birth and death, as it is believed to have been made sometime between 0 and 70 A.D. First century Jewish people commonly collected the bones of a dead person and placed them inside an ossuary. Two paleographers, who are experts in dating and authenticating inscriptions, have examined the Ossuary and concluded the inscription is authentic. Other evidence suggests the Ossuary is the burial box of James the Just. Professor Camil Fuchs analyzed the box and concluded that of the thousands of ossuaries that have been found, only one refers to a brother. Naming a brother or son was only done when the person who is referred to has achieved great fame or importance. Professor Fuchs also studied the frequency of names in the first century, reporting that statistically there was only 1 person named James with a brother named Jesus and a father named Joseph living in Jerusalem at the time. #1 Antikythera Mechanism The ancient Greek machine known as the Antikythera Mechanism is said to be more valuable to human history than the Mona Lisa. That's because the mechanism turned out to be the world's first analog computer. The Antikythera Mechanism was discovered in 1900 by divers who were exploring a shipwreck off of a Greek island. The machine, which was discovered inside a wooden box, resembles a large clock. It contains 233 teeth and multiple moving gears and 80 fragmented pieces. The amazing machine was carbon-dated to around 150 to 100 B.C. Archeologists believe that the mechanism actually relies on early Babylonian astronomical theories and calculations, meaning that the knowledge it represents dates from far earlier than 150 B.C. This technology appears to have been lost to human knowledge, since it would be thousands of years before a machine of such complexity would appear again. Scientists are amazed by the complexity and accuracy of the Antikythera Mechanism's measurements. By winding a knob on the side of the mechanism, the machine can show the positions of the sun, moon and specific stars and planets on any specific date and time. The device could replicate the movements of the moon caused by its elliptical orbit around the earth. It could also predict the dates of solar and lunar eclipses.

(10 Aug 2016) LEAD IN The Iraqi National Museum has been restored following damage caused by the 2003 invasion and the Islamic State group. With help from the US, Italy and Japan national heritage dating back thousands of years is now back on display. STORY-LINE Dating back between 1800-613 BC, artefacts such as these could have been lost forever after Baghdad fell to U.S. military forces in 2003. The Iraqi Museum was exposed to crime such as theft and looting, but now many of these treasures have been retrieved and restored. "Most of its antiquities, ruins and furniture were smashed," explains Deputy Minister of Culture, Qais Hussein Rasheed. "We worked hard along with other friendly countries, mainly the U.S., Italy and Japan, to rehabilitate the museum.'' Iraqi officials frequently caution the world that Iraqi ancient antiquities are under threat, especially in more recent years when the Islamic State group took over vast territories in the north and west of Iraq. "Recently, we are facing a new problem which is that the enemy (the extremists) bulldozed and torpedoed the archaeological sites. So we lost more than 150 archaeological sites, temples monasteries and churches dated to the Ottoman reign," says Rasheed. The Islamic state group looted and destroyed several ancient sites in Iraq and Syria as part of its campaign to cleanse the territory it controlled of items the extremists deem as non-Islamic. The militants "bulldozed" the renowned archaeological site of the ancient city of Nimrud in northern Iraq. Nimrud was the second capital of Assyria, an ancient kingdom that began in about 900 B.C. But thanks to recent restoration Assyrian and other Iraqi artifacts are now once again proudly on display at the Iraqi National Museum.

Close up of forced door lock STORYLINE: Three American soldiers were killed on Thursday when their convoy was hit by gunfire and rocket-propelled grenades in northern Iraq, a US military spokeswoman said. It was the second attack in two days that killed members of the 101st Airborne Division, which led the intense but sporadic fiery assault in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul that killed Udai and Qusai Hussein on Tuesday. A spokesman for the Coalition Joint Task Force 7 said he did not believe there was any link between Thursday's attack and the killing of Udai and Qusai Hussein. The soldiers were traveling in a convoy toward Qayyarah, 300 kilometers (186 miles) north of the capital, when they were attacked at about 02:30 local time (2330 GMT), according to a military spokeswoman. No other soldiers in the convoy near Mosul were wounded. Footage from the scene showed dried brown bloodstains on the dry grass verge beside the road and tyre marks in the field beside the road. It is not clear whether the tyre marks were from the ambushed American vehicle or a car used by the attackers. The deaths brought to 158 the number of American servicemen killed in action since the war began 20 March this year, surpassing by 11 the death toll in the 1991 Gulf War. In Baghdad, a US army convoy was attacked by insurgents with rocket propelled grenades as it was making its way through the southern suburbs of the city on Thursday. At least one soldier was injured in the attack that occurred in Saiddiya. APTN saw a destroyed humvee and debris from the blasts strewn across the road where the attack occurred. Meanwhile, in Baquba, an angry crowd gathered on Thursday after the US military raided a house overnight in the Iraqi town. The house of former Iraqi colonel Abdul Karim was stormed an searched in the early hours of Wednesday after a US tank smashed the front gates and a raiding party of US soldiers charged in, according to neighbours. The only people in the house at the time were the colonel's wife and five daughters.

They have historical values. But you can remove the extra copies, unnecessary copies. These are important for our scholars, for Western students to study them to understand a long period, a long, black period of our history." 11. Sign reading (in Arabic) "Paper (Document) Restoration Hall" 12. Various of equipment in Paper (Document) Restoration Hall 13. Exterior of National Library LEAD IN : Despite regular bombings, kidnappings and death threats the Iraqi National Library is still open to the people of the capital Baghdad. And, for the first time since 2003, the library is now fully accessible to the public. STORYLINE: The Iraqi National Library was badly damaged in the past four years since the former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein was overthrown by coalition and US forces. But recently the structure of the three-story building has been restored, new furniture replaced what was looted after the invasion, a new IT department has been set up and some 100 young university graduates have been hired to inject new blood into the organisation. The library also has a document and book restoration facility. All this has taken place in the three years since Saad Eskander took over Iraq's National Library. Since then the British-educated Kurd has had to undo the work of looters and arsonists, play detective, advise his employees on security, fight red tape and talk up his library to potential donors. Eskander says despite everything the library has stayed open during the months and years of conflict. The library is located in one of the city's most dangerous spots, caught between three Sunni insurgent strongholds in a part of Baghdad that's notorious for sectarian kidnappings and killings. Hardly a week goes by without one or more of Eskander's 450-strong staff or members of their immediate families receiving a death threat, being kidnapped, killed or wounded. Beside the five employees who have so far been killed, workers have lost nearly 70 close relatives, suffered two kidnappings and received 58 death threats. A total of 51 fled their homes as part of the sectarian cleansing taking place in Baghdad. For the first time since 2003, the library is now fully accessible to the public.

We immediately went down, we saw thick smoke billowing.'' 15. Wide of men at furniture shop STORYLINE: Residents of the New Baghdad neighbourhood of the Iraqi capital took stock of the damage to their businesses and homes on Sunday, after two separate car bombs exploded in the area. The attacks tore through bustling commercial streets on Saturday night in Shiite areas of Baghdad, part of a relentless wave of violence that killed at least 46 inside and outside the capital. One woman living in the neighbourhood, Um Abas, said two of here daughters had been injured in the attack. ''Broken glass fell on our heads. One of my daughters was wounded. Another was severely injured," she said, as one of her daughters stood with a bandaged head alongside her. "Blood started pouring from her ears. We immediately went down, we saw thick smoke billowing.'' The car bombs were detonated after the iftar meal that breaks the daily fast of the holy month of Ramadan, when many people head out to the shops or relax in coffee houses in the evening after fasting ends. Bombings and other attacks have now killed more than 250 people since the start of Ramadan on 10 July, according to an Associated Press count. Although there was no immediate claim of responsibility, coordinated bombings against Shiites are a favourite tactic of al-Qaida's Iraq branch. A senior Iraqi intelligence official, who is not allowed to speak publicly to journalists, said the coordinated nature of the car bombings strongly indicates al-Qaida is responsible. The violence is a continuation of a surge of bloodshed that has rocked Iraq for months, reviving fears of a return to the widespread sectarian killings that pushed the country to the brink of civil war after the 2003 US-led invasion.

Doe-eyed and adorable Kheer Allah lives with his mother, father, two brothers and sister. Their "home" has no furniture and no modern appliances, except for an old television and radio sitting precariously atop a stack of used tires. There's no meat on this family's table. Home-baked pita bread is the staple in this beyond-poor household. School is out of the question too. Young Kheer Allah must work every day to help his family survive. Boy of Baghdad is the heartbreaking, and very real, story of a remarkable boy forced to grow up much too quickly, in a dangerous world gone mad with politics and fanaticism. One that has sadly ignored its most vulnerable citizens, its children.

Various of cleaner sweeping debris Baghdad's Karrada neighbourhood 13. Various exteriors of Ibn al-Nafis Teaching Hospital 14. People entering hospital emergency ward 15. Various of injured people 16. Ambulance driving out of hospital STORYLINE: At least eight people were killed and 21 wounded after bombs hidden in plastic bags near a falafel stand exploded at a market in a mainly Shiite area in Baghdad on Sunday, Iraqi officials said. It was the latest in a series of bombings targeting Shiites and minorities in the capital and northern Iraq. The bags packed with explosives were left among a pile of rubbish and exploded shortly before 8 p.m. on Sunday (1700 GMT Sunday) as the district was crowded with people enjoying the evening. Several nearby stores were also damaged, according to police and hospital officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorised to release the information. Five children were among the wounded, they said. The injured people were taken to Ibn al-Nafis hospital for treatment. On Monday, broken glass littered the ground where one of the explosions occurred in Baghdad's al-Jidida neighbourhood Outside another cafe, broken furniture and bloodstains soiled the ground from the explosions. Medics on Monday were treating the wounded at Ibn al-Nafis Teaching Hospital in Baghdad's Karrada neighbourhood. The spike in violence follows the June 30 withdrawal of American troops from urban areas, heightening concerns about the ability of Iraqi forces to protect the people. Political tensions have also risen further as the country prepares for national elections scheduled for January. Violence has fluctuated throughout the year, but the intense period of bombings in recent days has indicated a more sustained effort, with nearly 160 people killed in blasts since August 7. Mindful of the fears, the Iraqi government announced on Sunday that it had indefinitely postponed a nationwide census after warnings that it could stoke ethnic and political tension.

They entered the complex on the banks of the Shatt Al-Arab waterway at first light in the culmination of a massive operation to take control of Basra. US fighter planes had softened up the target by bombing watchtowers overnight. Also on Monday, in Baghdad, U.S. soldiers from the 3rd Infantry Division captured one of Saddam Hussein's presidential palaces that lies between the airport and the centre of Baghdad. Reporters at the scene said resistance by Iraqi defenders was limited.

But the the city's Fedayeen militia had abandoned the building - or been bombed into retreat. 00:32 The palace looked like it hadn't been lived in for months - 00:36 although the commandos did find some men who they thought may have been looting. 00:41 Inside the palace - how the regime used to live: a large marble floor and ornate ceiling. 00:52 In Baghdad, U.S. soldiers from the 3rd Infantry Division have taken hold of an even grander palace. 00:59 In the south-west of the capital, it was often used by President Saddam Hussein - and as a residence, rather than just an administrative headquarters. 01:08 But for now it's proved a comfortable place for U.S. soldiers to take a break. 01:14 Some rooms have spectacular river views and the palace provides an insight into Saddam's lifestyle before the war.

Wide shot of soldiers and fallen Saddam statue STORYLINE: Dead bodies and destroyed vehicles lined a road to the Iraqi capital Baghdad on Friday, as US troops sought to secure control of the city and civilian looters carried away what they could from the wreckage of Saddam Hussein's regime. At Doura, about 20 kilometres outside Baghdad, the bodies of dead Iraqis were still lying in the street among the wreckage of cars and trucks, destroyed in recent heavy fighting with US-led forces. In Baghdad itself, official buildings that were once at the heart of the regime were being looted of almost everything except the official portraits of Saddam. At the now-unguarded Foreign Ministry offices and the Ba'ath party headquarters, civilians filled cars with looted equipment, office furniture and fittings, or seized as much as they could carry away. One group of US soldiers took their own souvenirs -- chiselling fragments from a fallen statue of Saddam Hussein lying in a Baghdad square.

Various of Iraqis cleaning up the streets after looting, shovelling waste onto pyre and into dumper STORYLINE: Civilian casualties of the US-led airstrikes on Baghdad were exhumed from their makeshift graves on Sunday for a more fitting reburial with observance of religious rites. The bodies were hastily buried alongside Baghdad Children's hospital, as doctors say that was the only solution at the time. Having been kept in the hospital morgue for more than a week - with no electricity for refrigeration - the bodies had begun to decompose. The risk of infection to other patients had increased significantly. They were interred temporarily in a garden on the hospital grounds that could be sealed off. Relatives have since begun exhuming the bodies for proper burial. Elsewhere in Baghdad, an Iraqi flight technician surrendered to US marines. After being searched by the American troops, the man was escorted away saying "Down, down Saddam Hussein, high, high USA". Meantime, local Shi'ite and Sunnis rallied in Baghdad in a joint show of unity. During the march they called for an end to sectarianism across the country following the fall of the regime of Saddam Hussein. After prayers, Imam al Malaki, told journalists that armed militias were now protecting "food stores and hospitals, they will prevent all kind of looting and terrorism". Iraqis gathered outside the Intelligence Ministry in the hope of finding out what happened to loved ones that were imprisoned during Saddam's rule and have not been seen since. Inside the ministry there was little left following the bombing campaign and looting that followed.

Baghdad: Roadside Bomb Aimed at Convoy The city of Baghdad witnessed another horror this week, when a roadside bomb exploded in the city center -- wounding at least seven people and damaging a French embassy convoy on June 20th. It has been reported that one of the cars was badly damaged by the blast, along with a residential building and two other civilian vehicles, which were found nearby in the area. Ahmed Sabah, a local witness, narrated the tragic event to Al Arabiya. "It was a big bang, we felt nothing but glass and furniture falling over our heads. We couldn't do anything; we couldn't get the children out and we could not find our way. Then, we saw a car explode next to us and the house was damaged." Whilst roadside bombings and street shootouts are still common sights in Baghdad, it must not be forgotten that violence has reduced since its peak in 2006. This is largely due to the commitment and effort of the United States, whose troops are scheduled to leave Iraq at the end of this year.
