Thousands of Irish people were subjected to years of abuse and cruelty after being sold as slaves during the 17th and 18th centuries. That is the claim made by London based historians and authors Don Jordan and Michael Walsh.
"Candelabra" of Paracas Peninsula, Peru. Carved into a coastal cliff, this geoglyph is 650' high x 200' wide. Although similar to the Nazca Lines that lie 125 miles southeast, it was made by an earlier civilization, the Paracas, who lived about 650 BCE. Visible from far out at sea, the Candelabra was a navigational landmark, as it still is today. Photo by Y.A. Bertrand.
