Learn the history of Stonehenge with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Five thousand years ago, at the same time as the pyramids were being constructed in Egypt, another monolithic structure was being built in the English county now known as Wiltshire. This structure, a complex series of earthworks and towering standing stones, is one of Europe´s most famous prehistoric sites. But while we know quite a lot about who built the pyramids, and how and why they were constructed, we know very little about Stonehenge. Was it an astronomical observatory? A place of magic and ritual? A burial ground? A place of healing? The debate still rages. Part of the reason why Stonehenge remains such a mystery, is that it was constructed by people who had no form of written language, so there are no records, other than the stones themselves. So who were these mysterious stonemasons?

Learn about the story of the infamous Guy Fawkes with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. ´´Remember, remember the fifth of November, gunpowder, treason and plot.”Guy Fawkes has been called the most famous terrorist in history for his involvement in the failed Gunpowder Plot of 1605. His influence is still felt today in United Kingdom where ‘Guy Fawkes Night’ is still celebrated on 5 November. Guy Fawkes was born in York in 1570 when Queen Elizabeth I was on the English throne. It was an age where the only accepted form of Christianity was Protestantism. Catholics were greatly marginalized and often persecuted. Fawkes was the only son of Edward Fawkes and Edith Blake, both of whom were Protestants. Guy’s father died when he was just seven and his mother remained a widow for nine years before marrying Dennis Bainbridge, who was a Catholic. Whether it was due to the influence of his teacher or perhaps his step-father, Guy converted to Catholicism in his mid-teens, around the time Queen Elizabeth and Parliament were enacting a brutal repression of English Catholics.

Learn about the Seven Wonders of the World with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.2,500 years ago, people began to talk about the wondrous structures they had seen in their travels around the Mediterranean. In 222 B.C., Philo of Byzantium wrote an essay called ´´On the Seven Wonders”. The historian Herodotus had made his list a few hundred years before. But it was Antipater of Sidon, a Greek poet, who brought the Seven Wonders to life in 120 B.C. Antipater lived during the Hellenistic age, when the culture of the ancient Greeks had spread throughout the Mediterranean. Seven was a mystical number to people of this era. And Antipater’s Seven Wonders soon became tourist shrines, much like the Statue of Liberty and Eiffel Tower are today. The various lists which survived mentioned other wonders. This created confusion around the sixteenth century when there was a renewed interest in the ancient world. While the writers of that time generally agreed on six of them, the seventh Wonder was in dispute. It was entirely by chance that the list was finalized in the middle of the sixteenth century. A Dutch artist, Maerten van Heemskerck, made a series of engravings depicting the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. As he had never visited these Wonders, he could only use his imagination to create the images but they remained the general opinion of what the Wonders looked like. This changed more recently, when modern science was able to shed further light on all seven.

Learn about The Plantagenets with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.The House of Plantagenet was a royal house of 15 monarchs who ruled England from 1154-1485. The Plantagenets originally came from France, where they ruled a county called Anjou. They were a strange and powerful family, complex and prone to insanity. Their founder, Count Fulk III (known as ´´The Black”), had his wife burned at the stake in her wedding dress when he discovered she was sleeping with a goatherd. His great grandson, Geoffrey V gave the dynasty its name. The word Plantagenet comes from the name of a flower: plante genêt in French, or ´´common broom”. Geoffrey V was said to have worn a sprig of the golden flower in his battle helmet. Geoffrey married the Empress Matilda, daughter of Henry I of England, and their son, Henry II, became king on 19 December 1154, after a brief civil war known as ´´The Anarchy”.

Learn about Route 66 with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series. Route 66 is arguably the most famous road in the United States of America. Stretching 2,448 miles across much of the country, from Chicago in the East to Los Angeles in the West, it was also America´s longest road. As it wound its way across the remarkable scenery of America, Route 66 originally passed through the states of Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. In the early 1920s, entrepreneurs Cyrus Avery and John Woodruff conceived the idea of building a massive highway that linked Chicago to Los Angeles. Their inspiration sprung from the changing needs of the American people. The nation needed to be more accessible to its inhabitants. While there were already highways in America at the time, none were as big, and most excluded rural communities. Also known as ´´Highway 66´´, building of the road began in 1926.

Learn about Joan of Arc with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.It is said that when Joan of Arc was born on 6 January in 1412, the roosters in her village all crowed, even though it was midnight. When Joan was 13 years old, something happened to change her life. She was working in the garden when she thought she saw a bright light coming from the church, and heard someone speaking French in a sweet, low, beautiful voice. The voice told her it was the angel Saint Michael, and that he had a message from God. He told her she had a great mission to fulfill, and that she would be the one to save France. France had been at war with England for 92 years - what would later be known as the Hundred Years War. The English were trying to conquer France, and were succeeding. But the conflict had been raging for so long that there were barely any soldiers left, and both sides had to rely on mercenaries from Spain and Italy. Both countries were poor and exhausted, but there was no end in sight.
