The blog will be taking a temporary change of direction the next several weeks in an attempt to maintain a daily schedule. During this time a single factoid will be presented on the theme of the day. In the future I will return to the more in depth entries I enjoy working on.
The daily themes are as follows:
Tuesday: Ancient Egypt
Wednesday: American Civil War
Friday: Templar Knights
Saturday: Seven Wonders of the Ancient World
Sunday: Natural Disasters
To get things back on track I will be making two entries today. One covering pirates for yesterday and one today on ancient Egypt.
