appreciation of bravery

Veronika would like to thank all brave listeners. She enjoys researching and finding interesting information about events in the deep past. Especially she is passionate about ancient times because they are not crystal clear. They are wrapped in a mist of mystery. And so we use our imagination and creativity putting clues together into a readable picture.
Not everything we see or read is real nowadays, how can we be sure about the truthfulness of old texts? Crossreferences, of course. And yet, it is not every time possible when we speak about era 1000 or 100 BC.
On the other side, Veronika is not a historian. She relates to materials published by encyclopedias, universities, etc.
Hope you are able and willing to digest her findings.
