Here’s an awesome little piece of history:
Archaeologists in the Burnt City have discovered what appears to be an ancient prosthetic eye. What makes this discovery exceptionally awesome is the striking description of how the owner and her false eye would have appeared while she was still alive and blinking:

[The eye] has a hemispherical form and a diameter of just over 2.5 cm (1 inch). It consists of very light material, probably bitumen paste. The surface of the artificial eye is covered with a thin layer of gold, engraved with a central circle (representing the iris) and gold lines patterned like sun rays. The female remains found with the artificial eye was 1.82 m tall (6 feet), much taller than ordinary women of her time. On both sides of the eye are drilled tiny holes, through which a golden thread could hold the eyeball in place. Since microscopic research has shown that the eye socket showed clear imprints of the golden thread, the eyeball must have been worn during her lifetime. The woman’s skeleton has been dated to between 2900 and 2800 BCE. 

So she was an extraordinarily tall woman walking around wearing an engraved golden eye patterned with rays like a tiny sun. What an awesome sight that must have been.

In 1808, Napoleon, running out of scenic holiday destinations to  invade, somehow totally forgot about his neighbor to the south, Spain.  So that year he dispatched his troops, kicking off the Peninsular War.
Only 20 years old and working as a barmaid in the town of Valdepenas, Juana Galan was  not expecting a surge of French soldiers to come storming through her  village. But on June 6, that’s exactly what happened. At that time, most  of the men were fighting Napoleon’s forces elsewhere in the nation.  Juana, unfazed by things like rifles and Frenchmen and French riflemen,  began organizing the women in her village to form a trap for the  approaching army.
When the army arrived, Juana and her friends were ready. They dumped  boiling water and oil on the French troops, which by all accounts will  instantly take the fight out of pretty much anyone. Then Juana, armed  with only a batan, beat back the heavily armed French cavalry with her  squad of village women, almost none of whom were armed with guns.
The French retreated, giving up on capturing not just Juana’s town  but the entire province of La Mancha, leading to ultimate Spanish  victory. Today, she is seen in Spain as a national hero, a symbol of  resistance, strength, patriotism, feminism and hitting shit with a  stick.
