10 June 2009, by Daniel Schwen.
This week, we hear of possible confirmation for China’s First Dynasty Great Flood myth, we find out why Atlantic Salmon all but disappeared from Europe, we learn of the Master Plan to Reimagine the Alamo in Texas, we wonder if Camelot, the court of King Arthur, has been found, and we hear chilling excerpts from the Himmler Diaries.
Also: Yes! the White House and the Capitol in Washington were indeed built by slaves, the Smithsonian Institution is looking for a special kind of historian, we commemorate the decolonization of Africa, and we celebrate the 100th anniversary of the US National Park Service.
