This is a special book from the early Middle Ages (France, 9th century). Not only does it contain a high volume of very attractive images, but these images are also not what you would expect: they are drawn, as it were, with words. They illustrate Cicero’s Aratea, a work of astronomy. Each animal represents a constellation and the written words in them are taken from an explanatory text by Hyginus (his Astronomica) by jean

A Clochán is a dry-stone hut with a corbelled roof, dating from the early Middle Ages or earlier. Most archaeologists think these structures were built on the southwestern coast of Ireland since the Bronze Age. They are most commonly round beehive huts, but rectangular plans are known as well. by jean

The ancient text has no known title, no known author, and is written in no known language: what does it say and why does it have many astronomy illustrations? The mysterious book was once bought by an emperor, forgotten on a library shelf, sold for thousands of dollars, and later donated to Yale. Possibly written in the 15th century, the over 200-page volume is known most recently as the Voynich Manuscript, after its (re-)discoverer in 1912. by henrietta

This is a decent web design. The simple color scheme makes it seem sleek and stylish, but the links and the text relating to each link are kind of randomly scattered throughout the page.

Henry Cavill in Tristan + Isolde (2006). maybe the movie is not so historically accurate but the leather coat and the cloath are clearly medieval-inspired and they look much realistic for the early middle-ages style. and, Henry Cavill is so cool in this movie! #medieval by sandy

The Syrian sculptor Nizar Ali Badr is a discreet man. Words are not his thing. It is the stones. We know nothing of him, nor exactly where he comes from and where he is right now. You may find traces of him on two, three online sites, moved by his compositions on the Syrian refugees where they present Nizar Ali as a “migrant”.

#HelixNebula | ESO's Visible and Infrared Survey Telescope for Astronomy (VISTA) has captured this unusual view of the Helix Nebula (NGC 7293), a planetary nebula located 700 light-years away. The coloured picture was created from images taken through Y, J and K infrared filters. While bringing to light a rich background of stars and galaxies, the telescope's infrared vision also reveals strands of cold nebular gas that are mostly obscured in visible images of the Helix. #ad by sandy
