The state of TIAH
September 23rd, 2006
in 1779, in one of the last naval engagements of the failed American Revolution, Captain John Paul Jones' ship, the Bonhomme Richard, was defeated by the British vessels Serapis and Countess of Scarborough. Jones put up a valiant struggle, even refusing an offer of surrender by the captain of the Serapis before his ship began taking on water. Captain Jones allowed his crew to surrender and be taken prisoner aboard the surviving British vessels and the merchant ships they were escorting, but he went down with the Bonhomme Richard. This last defeat on the waves cleared the way for total British domination in the naval war with the colonies, which encouraged Congressional President John Jay's reconciliation movement.
in 1972, Dr. Roman Pelliot meets his associate, Professor Karl Ainsworth, at the train station in Montignac. “Thank you for coming,” he tells Ainsworth. “I presume you know about the Lascaux cave?” Professor Ainsworth nods, and Pelliot continues, “Well, we just found something new – a passage that had been sealed off until a few years ago. An intern found a body in there – just a few years old, not something there originally – and I saw drawings on the walls that were quite unsettling.” Professor Ainsworth interrupts with, “Something that matches my old theories?” Pelliot nods, and continues with, “There was also something else with us in that passage. We didn't stay to find out what it was.” Ainsworth chuckled, and said, “So you're throwing me into the lion's den, eh? Well, give me a night in the local inn, first – I'd rather go in first thing in the morning.” Pelliot agreed and showed Professor Ainsworth to the room he had arranged for him. That night, Franz Jaeger came to see Ainsworth, and warned him about the passage, saying there was something utterly unnatural about that place.
