Die Frau, die den Himmel bezwang
Aufgewachsen als Tochter eines Lords im afrikanischen Busch, interessiert sich die junge Beryl nicht für Seidenkleider und Etikette. Dafür ist sie stark und mutig wie ein Kipsigis-Junge und hat von ihrem Vater alles über Rassepferde gelernt. Doch im britischen Protektorat – dem späteren Kenia – der vorigen Jahrhundertwende ist kein Platz für solch ein ungezähmtes Mädchen. Bis sie in Karen Blixen eine Seelenverwandte findet – und in deren Geliebtem, dem Flieger und Großwildjäger Denys Finch Hutton, das Abenteuer ihres Lebens.
Die Autorin des internationalen Bestsellers „Madame Hemingway“ erzählt in diesem großen Afrika-Epos die wahre Geschichte der Flugpionierin Beryl Markham, die als erste Frau den Atlantik überquerte.
New dating techniques developed by Oxford University and British Museum researchers have pinpointed the age of the ‚Red Lady‘ burial site in Wales, previously thought to be 25,000 years old, to 29,000 years old. Despite the name, the bones are actually those of a man, aged approximately 21 years old. Finds in the Paviland Caves include over 4000 worked flints, necklace bones, stone needles and mammoth-ivory bracelets. Also found buried with the young man were perforated seashell necklaces identical to the 75,000 year old shells discovered at the Blombos site in South Africa. According to the researchers at Oxford University and the British Museum, the finding suggests that the origins of human burial may be found in Western Europe, and perhaps Britain, rather than elsewhere, although further dating work is required. And the larger question it raises is, what did Prehistoric cultures do with their dead? Surely they would have treated the remains of bodies with great reverence.
For example, the women of the Unambal tribe of northern Kimberley, Australia, carried the bones of their dead until they could leave them at the ’spirit waterhole‘ of the deceased.

The basilica is not to be confused with a cathedral. Guinness World Records lists it as the largest „church“ in the world, having surpassed the previous record holder, St.
While designing it after the Vatican Basilica, Lebanese architect Pierre Fakhoury constructed the dome to be slightly lower than the Basilica of Saint Peter, but ornamented with a larger cross on top. There is enough space to seat 7,000 people in the nave, with standing room for an additional 11,000 people. The wood chosen for the 7000 pews in the Our Lady of Peace Basilica is Iroko wood. The Basilica was built by Dumez, the French construction company. The cost of the basilica was met with some controversy globally when construction began, especially as the Côte d’Ivoire was going through an economic and fiscal crisis at the time. Pope John Paul II agreed to consecrate the basilica on the condition that a hospital also be built nearby.
It was claimed that the final cost of the Basilica doubled Côte d’Ivoire’s national debt. Côte d’Ivoire President Houphouët-Boigny chose his birthplace of Yamoussoukro to be the future site of the new capital city of his country in 1983. As part of the plan of the city, the president wanted to memorialize himself with the construction of what he called the greatest church in the world. He is even pictured beside Jesus in one stained-glass panel ascending to heaven. Basilica of Our Lady of Peace, Ivory Coast“.
