History, types and materials[ edit ] Early history and traditional dolls[ edit ] A typical Egyptian paddle doll from — BC The earliest dolls were made from available materials such as clay , stone, wood , bone , ivory , leather , or wax. Archaeological evidence places dolls as the foremost candidate for the oldest known toy.
Wooden paddle dolls have been found in Egyptian tombs dating to as early as the 21st century BC. Archaeologists have discovered Greek dolls made of clay and articulated at the hips and shoulders. Dolls have been found in the graves of Roman children. Like children today, the younger members of Roman civilization would have dressed their dolls according to the latest fashions. In Greece and Rome, it was customary for boys to dedicate their toys to the gods when they reached puberty and for girls to dedicate their toys to the goddesses when they married.
There is no defined line between spiritual dolls and toys. In some cultures dolls that had been used in rituals were given to children. They were also used in children’s education and as carriers of cultural heritage. In other cultures dolls were considered too laden with magical powers to allow children to play with them.

The conversion of the building into a new department store, hotel or serviced apartments has been all but ruled out following months-of-behind the scenes talks. The same firm is spearheading plans for a major extension of the Edinburgh Park business hub which would create more than jobs and new homes if it wins permission from the city council. They say the Frasers building is not suitable to meet the demands of modern-day retail when a vast new shopping centre is being created at the east end of the city centre.
The planned overhaul of the building is expected to help address a shortage of high-quality office accommodation in the city centre due to the lack of new developments coming out of the ground. It was also touted as the possible site for a new hotel — echoing its short-lived use in , when it operated as the Osborne Hotel, before becoming home to the Scottish Liberal Club.

The Queensland senator’s time in Federal Parliament has been tumultuous, with him leaving One Nation just hours before being sworn in to the Upper House after a spat with leader Pauline Hanson. He joined KAP after a short stint as an independent and was criticised for using the term “final solution” during his first speech on migration. But on Thursday, Mr Katter said the party’s executive decided only “99 per cent” of it was solid gold, and that the rest was “totally unacceptable”.
Mr Katter said he had repeatedly warned Senator Anning not to use racially charged language or call for a European immigration program. This is a far more important issue, and it’s one the Australian people, I’m sure, would like to have a say in,” Senator Anning told reporters last week. Senator Anning said his plebiscite would also ask whether “Muslim immigration” should be stopped.
He denied this was bigoted, saying it was not “bigoted at all to give Australians a say in who comes here”. Mr Katter on Thursday said he would have voted against the bill if it ever came to Parliament.

Share shares ‘Each universe is sort of like a soap bubble embedded in the cosmic void of the multiverse, expanding from its own Big Bang. Our galaxy, the Milky Way pictured is just one of billion galaxies in the universe, and one theory suggests our universe could be only one of a vast number of universes, popping up like soap bubbles. Much of what scientists know about the relative contributions of dark matter and dark energy comes from the relic radiation left behind from the Big Bang, called the cosmic microwave background CMB.
We can measure the CMB by looking far into the distant universe. Information can only travel at the speed of light, meaning that if we look far enough away we can see events that happened in the past. Looking at the sun, you see it as it was eight minutes ago because the light takes eight minutes to reach us.
