- ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming': Was the Washington Monument Actually Built by Slaves?

Homecoming, Peter Parker’s snarky, woke classmate Michelle (played memorably by Zendaya), refuses to join her academic decathlon teammates on an elevator ride to the top of the Washington Monument, which, as it turns out, spares her from a horrifying situation and a deadly rescue mission for Spider-Man.The reason why didn’t Michelle join them on the doomed elevator ride?Because she didn’t feel like entering a monument built by slaves.According to the U.S. Geologic Survey, three quarries supplied the marble that makes up the majority of the Monument: two from Maryland and one from Massachusetts.According to a study by the National Park Service, 92 of those stones were set into place during pre-Civil War construction, with a number of them coming from states and organizations where slave labor was used for all goods, including mining.

- Unearthing the mystical past in misty Wales
By John Flinn - Thursday Aug 10, 2017
[...] they seem quite happy to be out of sync with modern times. Flanked by mysterious hills dotted with druid stones, Celtic crosses and more than a few King Arthur legends, this corner of Pembrokeshire exudes the aura of timelessness and myth for which Wales is renowned. If you come here it will likely be to walk the resplendent Pembrokeshire Coast Path, which, justifiably, has become one of the area’s biggest draws. Walk through the front door of the Dryffryn Arms pub in the village of Pontfaen — known locally as “Bessie’s” — and you’ll feel you’ve instantly stepped back 75 years in time. The pub, sparsely furnished with benches and a quarry-tiled floor, is the front room of the home of proprietor Bessie Davies, 87, who’s been serving thirsty customers here since King George VI sat on the British throne. The only libation here is Bass ale — the flat, room-temperature version — poured from jugs filled directly from the barrel. Above Cwm Gwaun, the brooding Preseli Hills are the setting for many of the ancient Welsh tales collected in a book called the Mabinogion, which calls the region “the Land of Mystery and Magic.” Amid the heath and wild moorland are druid temples, burial chambers — and, at a semicircle of imposing stones called Beddarthur, the purported final resting place of King Arthur himself. Some have been pressed into service as fence posts, others fitted with top pieces to resemble a Spinal Tap-sized Stonehenge. Standing beneath the outcrop of natural pillars of dolerite and rhyolite, it certainly looks the part. [...] it leaves you scratching your head why the ancient builders didn’t just assemble the monument here, rather than dragging the 2-ton slabs more than 150 miles over hill and dale to the Salisbury Plain. Trace your finger along the A40 highway across the peninsula, and you’ll notice that the place names to the north are clearly Welsh (such as Llanddewi Belfry) and those to the south are distinctly English (Redstone Bank, Princes Gate). Oxford scientists tracing DNA in Pembrokeshire recently reported “unexpectedly stark differences” on either side of the line, with those to the north exhibiting classic Celtic markers and those to the south Anglo-Saxon versions.
