Light-tree at Sony Center, Potsdamer Platz.

Berlin, Germany – 24 December 2010.

830pm, Christmas Eve.

Typically, I’d come to watch people in this place, the Sony Center. Would it be time for a quick coffee, before heading into Cinestar for a movie in English? If I stopped by at night and looked up, would I see the roof bathed in colour? Or would it be a way to spend time in the Legoland Discovery Centre, and think about whimsy and youth? Well after dark on a cold blustery snowy Christmas Eve, I came for the sparkle, and treated myself to the sight of a light-tree. …

Archbishop of Cologne (1238 - 1261), von Hochstaden wielded great influence in imperial affairs but was a controversial and contentious figure. Ultimately, to generate funds for continuing work on the cathedral, he initiated a tax on hops (thus raising the price of beer), a move that may have influenced the grotesque ornamentation added by stone carvers at the base of his statue

Bulgarian archaeologists have discovered bracelets with snake heads, a tiara with animal motifs and a horse-head piece in a hoard of ancient golden artefacts unearthed during excavations at a Thracian tomb in the north of the country.

The artefacts have been dated to the end of the fourth or the beginning of the third century BCE. They were found in the biggest of 150 ancient tombs of the Getae people, a Thracian tribe that was in contact with the Hellenistic world. The hoard also yielded a golden ring, 44 female figure depictions and 100 golden buttons.

“These are amazing findings from the apogee of the rule of the Getae,” said Diana Gergova, head of the archaeologist team and a researcher of Thracian culture with the Sofia-based National Archaeology Institute. “From what we see up to now, the tomb may be linked with the first known Getic ruler, Cothelas.”

The site is at the ancient Getic burial complex near the village of Sveshtari, about 250 miles north-east of Sofia. One of the tombs there, the Tomb of Sveshtari, is included in the Unesco world heritage list for its unique architectural decor showing half-human, half-plant female figures and painted murals.

The Thracians, ruled by a powerful warrior aristocracy wealthy for their gold treasures, [Ed. Note: Huh?] inhabited an area extending over modern Romania and Bulgaria, northern Greece and the European part of Turkey from 4000BCE. …
