comment Strange Symbol Painted on Basement Floor
It is similar to Brass symbol in alchemy, it would make sense if it is connected to some material present in there. Here is the symbol itself: feuerschmiedwandshoppe.com/Figures/Metals/Brass-Symbol.gif

comment What was the average height in Classical Greece?
+1 Interesting to see the period of dark ages how average female height dropped significantly, most probably because of poor nutrition and higher stress levels.

comment What was the average height in Classical Greece?
My guess is that since people generally had similar gene pool and also similar living standards - nutrition, stress levels, etc... - so the average height difference between the two eras will be minimal.

So far this seems to be the answer, if nobody brings different records, I will accept this answer in few days. Special thanks for Semaphore.

@Semaphore That was something similar to my thought too when I meant "independence", but didn't find any reference, probably it is a good guess.

comment Why were Soviets so extremely effective snipers in WW2?
@TylerDurden I find the page's claim to be weak that is why I asked the question on the first place, and the second is really the point "why is this list full of soviets except the best of them?"

comment Why were Soviets so extremely effective snipers in WW2?
I gave a +1 for the point 2, I also saw on the list numerous siberians, but I didn't connect this fact to the efficiency, it is a good point
