comment How did ancient mystery religions impact Christianity?
@JustinY sorry I can't give more specific examples than the one mentioned. I think Caleb is on the right track with the Gnostic beliefs.

I don't think this answers OP's question. How? Yes.

comment What English company founded in the 1200s filed for bankruptcy in the 2000s?
Via the above link I found this list of oldest companies. Nothing stands out as what you're looking for but maybe you will see something familiar.

comment Did any of the US States ever attempt to secede, aside from American Civil War times?
Up until Texas v White in 1869 secession was not explicitly unconstitutional, and that ruling forbids unilateral secession. Presumably a state could still legally secede with the consent of the union, and to that end a lot of modern movements present themselves as petitions to the federal government to consider secession.

comment Why aren't the Americas named after Christopher Columbus
I read a very interesting article, published around Columbus Day I think, about why the name America was used on the first popular map of the New World and how it stuck as a result. I can't seem to find it now though.

@DVK I've rewritten the question to be more specific. And I don't happen to have a copy of the book you mention.

comment To what extent did Native American cultures develop metalworking for tools and weapons?
I'm thinking specifically of copper/bronze and iron for tools and weapons. I'm aware that some cultures used precious metals.
