Links to events and people – That I stumbled across:
- Did you ever hear about Timur? His armies were […] feared throughout Asia, Africa, and Europe, sizable parts of which his campaigns laid to waste. […] his military campaigns caused the deaths of 17 million people, amounting to about 5% of the world population at the time. Amir Timur, Tamerlane, “Timur the Lame”, founder of Samarkand.
- List of apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic fiction. Alas my books Two Journeys and Fields of Fire are still missing – feel free to add them to the list! (As the author I won’t do it myself; to modest!) Wikipedia
- Finally, often mentioned, but what is a burqa ? A burqa is an outer garment worn by women in some Islamic traditions to cover themselves in public, which covers the body and the face.
