SEBASTION CABOT-reknowned navigator and contemporary of columbus. son of a venetian merchant, b in bristol, england. no certain dates of b or d. no history before he was 20.
discoveries by columbus, infused sebastion to follow his achievements. henry VIII wished to enter maritime discovery. the cabots got a patent 1496 which empowered them to seek out, subdue, and occupy at their own charges any regions which before had 'been unknown to all christians.' set w/ royal banner + possess the territories they found as kings.
S and pa sailed from ristol in 1497 and returned after 1st discovery. 9/10/1497- "to him that found new isle, £10."
not new foundland as thought, but probably american mainland.
the most precise account of the disc. is from a map drawn by SC and engraved in 1549 by clement Adams. which hung in Queen elizabeth's gallery.
on SC's map of 1544, nothing is above the 16th parallel. island st. juan(st edward) within a gulf. st laurence. a 2nd patentto John Cabot(pa) 2/3/1498, authorized him to take 6 ships, but before the expedition, j died and SC w/ a fleet of 5 ships sailed in 1498. on this voyage, upon landing(prob hudson bay) he sought to find passage to india(why didn't anybody go south/west?. until fear of icebergs, crew mutinied, compelling him to turn around. going far south as 38º along coast. returned to E. took 300 men for colony, but landed too far north and most died. took 3 american native w/ him.
nothing of SC til 1512, where he was living in seville, engaged in map editing, death of ferdinand put end of search for NW passage to cathay and he returned to E. 1517 sailed again for A. 1518 revisited spain, appointed pilot-major, 1526 sailed again, but for south america to paraguay, forced to return to spain, back to E and maybe bristol. edward VI in 1549 granted the aged seaman a pension of 250 marks. Hakluyt(?) states that office of grand pilot of E created for him. at this time SC explained to the king the phenomenon of the variation of the needle, active in promoting the expedition of 1553 to russia, the success which gave him the life appointment to gov of muscovy Co. SB supposedly died in London in 1557, 61 years after his 1st commision from henry VIII and close to 80 yrs. place of burial unknown.
CAUL/KABUL-capital of Afghanistan, believed to be the Ortospanum or Ortospana of alexander's geographies on his march, maybe corruption of urddhasthana. 'highplace'
CACHAO/KACHO/KECHO/HECHO/KESHO-formerly Donk-king and now BACTHIAN or BAL-KING largest city of ANAM(vietnam?)
CACONGO-small kingdom of west africa, seperate from congo by river Zaire. capital Kinguela.
CADIZ-latin Gades and formerly called Cales in east spain. very scenic. commercial greatness in 17th + 18th C when a major port between spain and their colonies. Cadiz is identical w/ ancient Agadir, Gadir, or Gadir, which was a flourishing phoenician colony before classical history and continued in cathaginian hands til after punic wars when romans too it.

RANDOM HOARD-EBAY POST
i planned on hoarding this. found it at a real neat estate sale. 50¢. wanted to give it to keith. but...too big really to keep and i don't smoke. i didn't even know about allen-braley's architecture division or ceramics. pretty damn cool. got $9.99 for it.
back to eivind. ever since the fucktard georgie stole the white house. i have lost somebody in fall. grandma F, in 2001, grandpa F 2002, who went in 03'? grandma A? or was that 04' beulah and keith in 06'. my grandpa F's cousin bill gumm just died. 1 of 4 brothers. and now i learn eivind. who am i missing. auntie next fall? i think 04' was the only year without death. except democracy.
fuck bush. fuck getting old.
full being alone.
not that i am lonely. just wish....
wish i had keith.
i also got a Xmas card from Jeannette Lillehoj. i will post more about her and eivind. but eivind passed away in feb this year. i stayed with them about a week around 1999 with bendicte on one of her road trips. i spent a lot of time with 80 year old eivind. good old danish liberal. we would talk politics and history. he was a retired professor. he loved jazz. i was listed to NPR and told him that John(mind blank-senator who wore a sweater vest on the senate floor, repulican i liked, gonna come to me i know it will) CHAFFEE died. and that golfer was flying overhead dead in a plane.
he was really sweet. i have to send jeannette a letter.
well, almost 1/2 thru. americans are finally in the trenches. the first amercan artilary shot has been flown. and he gives the names of the gunmanners. and much discussion about the first american to give his life. much discussion about the western front of the french towns.
and he talks of a special commander. a man who seems to take relish no matter how hard the endeavor. Major griffiths had fought in the philippine insurrection as a sergeant in the tennessee naional guar, rose to major, then joined the aussies and fought at gallipoli in 1914. wounded, sent to britain to recover. promoted to a british major and sent to france in command of a the sherwood forresters. wounded twice, ypres and loos. but when the americans joined, rejoined the american army, rushing his convalescence. his right hand still not 100%, but thrilled to fight for the US again. he died 3 months later at catigny.
i guess back then you couldn't thrill seek by climbing mountains and sky gliding.
BYZANTIUM- ancient city. 'modern constantinople' (cue They Might Be Giants-ISTANBUL!) has been built there. founded by Megarians 667 bc. war war war mixed racially and fought over by each side CIVIL WAR.
in 196ad besieged and taken by Severus, who destroyed the city, and demolished the faous wall, which built of massive stones, so closely rivetted together to appear one block.
severus rebuilt and named it Augustia Antonina
constantine found the area perfect and established Constantinople in 330 ad.
byzantines, by historians, considered profligate, lazy, pleasure seeking. LOS ANGELES! was there surfing?
this ends B. and here begins C.
CABBAGE-the parent form of the variety of useful culinary vegies. wild cabbage insignificant plant, 1 to 2 ft high.
a channel island cabbage forms usually 8ft, but known to grow double that height. the cabbage that ate scotland!
'drumhead' cabbage in germany converted into sauerkraut by placing in a tub with layers of salt and cabbage and fermented. kohlrabi is a peculiar and exceptional variety of cabbage. cultivated in certain districts as cattle food(denmark, i saw this-you don't eat it?). has anti-scorbutic properties, but unless eeaten when very fresh and tender, they are difficult to digest and have very decided tedency to produce flatulence(REALLY?!?)
CABIRI-mythology. identified w/ the DIOSCURI, (castor + pollux), in common w/ whom they were styled and had the power of protecting life against storms at sea, the symbol of their presence st. elmo fire. worship local and peculiar to islands of lemnos, imbros and samothrace, there extending to troy.

BYZANTINE HISTORIANS- covering eastern greek or byzantine empire for millineum between theodosus and the turkish conquest of constantinople. classed together due to the # and fragments they produced. except procopius, the polybius of his time. (is this where the word procopius comes from?)
1-AGATHIAS of Myrina. 536 ad.died under Tiberius II 580ish-epigramist and poety editor 6 years 553-550. important narritive-goths and narses. war + 2 earthquakes 554 and 557, plague, and belisarius in bulgaria.
2-Menander protector-lived under Mauricius-581.
3- Theophylactus of Simocalta-sophist and of egyptian extraction. history of emperor Maurricius(582-602). 8 books. lived til 68. accurate but trivial and frigid. ? huh?
4-Joannes of Epiphaneia- contemporary of theophylactus. wrte history of wars of greeks and persians under latter part of justinians reign until restoration of chosroes II by mauricius 591. never printed, but said to exist in MS at heidelburg.
5- Emperor Constantine Porphyrogenitus 911-959. wrote history of grandfather, Basil, the Macedonian emp 867-886.
6- Gonesius, lived in time of guy above. wrote history of Basil II and 4 predeccessors. 813-886

9- Nicephorus Bryennius- son in law of emperor Alexius Comnenus and 1 of the 1st statesmen and generals of his time. 4 books of history of the empire and coments from 1057-1081.
10-ANNA COMENA, daughter of emperor Alexius and marvel of her sex at thattime of extremely low female education. wrote(1148) the history of her father in 15 books. the period of alexius interesting as that the barrier of byzantine isolation was broken down and the east and west came in contact by the encroachment of the normands on the east and by the crusades.
11-her history continued by Joannes Cinnamus, one of the most emminent of them all, in the imperial court of Manuel Comnenus 1143-1180. in position to write history, covers death of Alexius Comnenus(1118) to siege of Iconium by manuel Comnenus in 1176, who died in 1180, so the last part lost.
12- Nicetas Acominatus of choniates. patrician and held prominant positions under Isaac Angelus in bginning of the 1200's. covered same history as cinnims to 1206. described the taking of constantinople by latins in 4th crusade(1204). own palace destroyed. escaped to niceaea, where he wrote his history under theodore lascarus.

17-Joannes Cananus, wrote an account of the siege of constantinople by Amurath II in 1422(i read amurath)
18-Michael Ducas-chief historian of the fall of the greek empire, escaped the sack of constantinople to lesbos where he wrote his history after the turks to lesbos in 1462. the most dificult and barbarous, but alsointelligent, impartial, and sagacious. the fall also written by
20 georgius phrantzes +21 laonicus 1259-1477.
