HISTORICAL THURSDAY Old Oyo in southwest Nigeria is a said to be the former city of Oyo (known as Oyo-Ile ), which was deserted in the 18th century after a war with Hausa/Fulani raiders. The site lies within the confines of Old Oyo National Park, and on it are the ruins of buildings built by people who lived there in the past, such as the old palace compound, outer walls with ditches and a water reservoir. There are also wells, cisterns, and grinding hollows which are proof of an extensive past settlement. Within the park is also the famous Agbaku Cave, which served as shelter for the ancient warriors of the Oyo-Alaafin Kingdom during times of war. #tbt #history #OyoHistory #monuments #AfricanHeritage #Ibadan #Ibadanhistory #wearedexterityfm

HISTORICAL THURSDAY The Colosseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre is an oval amphitheatre in the centre of the city of Rome, Italy. Built of travetine limestone, tuff (volcanic rock ), and brick-faced concrete, it was the largest amphitheatre ever built at the time and held 50,000 to 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum is just east of the Roman Forum. Construction began under the emperor Vespasian in AD 72 and was completed in AD 80 under his successor and heir, Titus. Further modifications were made during the reign of Domitian (81–96 ). These three emperors are known as the Flavian dynasty, and the amphitheatre was named in Latin for its association with their family name (Flavius ). Although substantially ruined because of earthquakes and stone-robbers, the Colosseum is still an iconic symbol of Imperial Rome and is listed as one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. It is one of Rome's most popular tourist attractions and also has links to the Roman Catholic Church, as each Good Friday the Pope leads a torchlit "Way of the Cross" procession that starts in the area around the Colosseum. The exhibitions of exotic animals, execution of prisoners, recreations of battles and gladiator fights at the Colosseum kept the Roman people entertained for years. #tbt #history #monuments #colosseum #colosseumrome #learning #dexterityschool

HISTORICAL THURSDAY The Statue of Liberty is a colossal neoclassical sculpture on Liberty Island in New York Harbor within New York City, in the United States. The copper statue, a gift from the people of France to the people of the United States, was designed by French sculptor - Frédéric Auguste Bartholdi and its metal framework was built by Gustave Eiffel. The statue was dedicated on October 28, 1886. The statue is a figure of Libertas, a robed Roman liberty goddess. She holds a torch above her head with her right hand, and in her left hand carries a tabula ansata inscribed JULY IV MDCCLXXVI (July 4, 1776 in Roman numerals ), the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. A broken shackle and chain lie at her feet as she walks forward, commemorating the recent national abolition of slavery. After its dedication, the statue became an icon of freedom and of the United States, seen as a symbol of welcome to immigrants arriving by sea. Before being mounted on its current pedestal, the statue stood over 151 feet (46 metres ) tall and weighed 225 tons. #tbt #history #monuments #momumentsinUSA #historicalmonuments #onlineschool #learning #dexterityglobalacademy

La Capilla Mayor de la #mezquitadecordoba es una maravilla circunscrita a la belleza del resto del templo. ✨✨ Fue construida en 1523 y en ella intervinieron Hernán Ruiz el Viejo y su hijo del mismo nombre. ✨✨ Se edificó en un espacio triangular resultante de la demolición de bóvedas y arquería califal. ✨✨ Hoy en día es un impresionante lugar en el que se combinan elemento #góticos y del #renacimiento y que si no fuera por la maravilla que lo rodea nos admiraría por sí mismo. ✨✨ #córdoba cuenta con tantas maravillas que no es de extrañar que pertenezca al @grupocphe ✨✨ • • • #arte #art #artinspiration #arthistorian #be_one_spain #be_one_sacro #churchmypassion #igers_monumental_word #monuments #gothicart #artlovers #travelgram #andalucia_monumental
