Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment Can the historical records in the Bible be considered as accurate/factual records?
@fdb: I fail to see how "Jerusalem is a city" is not a historical fact and how "Jerusalem is under Roman occupation" is not a historical event. They might be trivial but that's beside the point. ^_~

comment The riddle of Marco's Millions
+1. I was expecting to close this question based on the title that reads a little like a conspiracy theory of a lost treasure. However, I am pleasantly surprised by a great question! Well done sir.

comment How did the human capacity to manipulate the physical and social world change in Europe between 1400 to 1700?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about fictional history, is too broad even in a fictional history setting, and cannot be answered with even a modicum of objectivity.

Campaigns of Napoleon: The Mind and Method of History's Greatest Soldier by David Chandler is a good source to start from.
