With archaeology, we are able to take a peek into the past. Ancient texts, though revealing, often times are subjective, written by conquerors and victors, skewing the facts to make themselves appear in a more positive light. But ancient relics, buried deep in the ground by time or people, tell a more complete story of what happened hundreds, if not thousands of years ago.

TopTenz Simon, this video was truly interesting! I had never heard of most of these discoveries, so I learned something new, whilst enjoying your video, as well!
Of course, if I were to be truly honest, I should admit that I could listen to you all day long! I rather enjoy your accent (it’s not an accent that’s ever heard where I live in America).
So, thank you for giving me the opportunity to not only learn new things, but to enjoy your absolutely awesome voice, as well!! 😁
People really like to say that a wide open mouth on a corpse/skeleton indicates a horrible death because "obviously they were screaming". However, sometimes because of decomposition and gravity, the jaw naturally becomes open.
I'm not saying violence isn't sometimes involved. I'm just saying that a wide open jaw doesn't necessarily mean anything at all.
You know it sucks so bad listening to you talk so fast. It's so stressful I can't watch your videos, though I've tried because your topics are interesting. Not just yours, but others that have British accents and talk very quickly as well on YouTube so I guess for me it's a bad combination. Sorry. Mabey you can slow your Pace?
+Furious Fajita if he was scottish were all related we scots are just irish with a smaller gene pool lol. alot of my ancestors woulda ship off to colonys iv family in north America few people acknowledge the gaelic slave trade u must be a smart cookie cuz. tiocfaidh ar la
Those 3 janissaries killed in Romania... I'm guessing they were so viciously killed and without a Christian burial because they were considered traitors. They weren't Turks, but Slavs who were made soldiers who fought for the Turks. The name "janissary" in the Ukraine and Romania today is synonymous with traitor kind of like Benedict Arnold in the US. I'm sure they were killed with extreme prejudice.
Thank you SO SO MUCH for using a real live narrator instead of a robot. The robots are so hard to listen to and seem to be everywhere in all the low quality videos. Thank you VERY much for using a human being.
But I do find your guy talks WAY TOO FAST, and lacks "color." His affect is much too flat, but the excessive speed is the real problem. I have to race my mind to hear all the words so have no time to understand them. It just sounds a torrent of words all sounding the same. I'm sure if I had time to research I could find science to back this concept up and prove it to you, but people's opinions should be enough. Please just get him to slow down. But don't ever go to computerized voice. Thanks!
Waiting for a biograph of the legend himself Simon Whistler 😂 but ey, loving the videos, so in depth and interesting.... Always thought I was a history nerd but I learn so much new stuff everyday thanks to this channel, loveeee it (even though I'm driving my girlfriend crazy by constantly playing new videos 😂)
_"Violence is a pretty ubiquitous part of the human behavioural repertoire . . ."_ - true, too true . . . _"Having said that, so too is altruism, cooperating and caring."_ . . . well, that's true as well, but only in a highly selective manner - the human species is basically sociopathic with the ability to be selectively empathetic or altruistic (altruism, like utopia, doesn't exist, btw).
Sorry Simon Whistler, a wide open mouth, sometimes found in the mummies of Egypt and other places of course, does not necessarily mean a gruesome death. It may look like the victim was in other pain or was screaming or something when they died, but that quite often was just the fact that they did not glue the mouth shut like they do today. So, sorry Simon Whistler, do your research man.
Hello Simon, can you please address the theory that extraterrestrial aliens influence events on Earth and that they have been involved and manipulated many cultures throughout our history and still are even today? The alien races I've read and heard about are the Anunnaki, Acturians, Pleiadians, Reptilian Drako's, the Tall Whites, the and ubiquitous Grey's. Its hard to believe that theory as legitimate but there seems to be a lot of circumstantial evidence that points to it might being true. I love your YouTube channel and I thought you would be the perfect guy to address this!!
Just a note... The terms Aboriginal and Aborigine are used differently. Eg. When referring to someone it's either 'He/She is Aboriginal' or 'He/She is an Aborigine', also 'Aboriginal culture and history' or 'The history and culture of the Aborigines', 'The Aboriginal people' or 'The Aborigines'. Referring to Aborigines as Aboriginals is not correct.
drunkensailor112 Moloch was just as well known to the Romans. They were revolt by the Phoenicians because of their child sacrifice. The Romans exterminated Moloch worship in their empire. These were the murdered babies of Roman prostitute slaves. Only Jewish-derived religions have historically forbidden infanticide.
Naive. There are never less than 5 major conflicts going on at any one time TODAY,
and yet, whenever a body is found to show signs of violence, archeologists are AMAZED that it might just be evidence of ancient warfare.
