Martial arts are usually learnt and practiced in the traditional akharas.
Indian epics contain the earliest accounts of combat, both armed and bare-handed.
In fact, the term "Jomon" is now used to refer to the entire period of Japanese Stone Age Art.
To see how Jomon ceramic ware fits into the chronology of pottery-making around the world, see: Pottery Timeline (26,000 BCE - 1900).
Where two dialmakers’ names are stamped there, it is often when one maker took over the unused stock of another and a very useful guide indeed for dating a dial.
For a full understanding, read Brian Loomes’ book “Painted Dial Clocks”.
The familiar terms calendar and era (within the meaning of a coherent system of numbered calendar years) concern two complementary fundamental concepts of chronology.
Follow the simple instructions below and you’ll soon get the hang of it. They fall into three distinct types, commonly known as period one(1770-1800), two (1800-1825) and three(1825-1860). Whereas period one corner decoration tends to be simple gold scrollwork OR little flowers, fruit or the occasional bird, period two dials TEND to have either geometric shapes, or shells, or abstract patterns – usually with a little more colour than period one.While they may seem to imply specific disciplines (e.g.archery, armed combat), by Classical times they were used generically for all fighting systems.This dial is typical of about 1800: I can’t stress strongly enough – these people are NOT CLOCKMAKERS , they are the people who made the dials which the clockmakers used.The clockmaker’s name is usually on the dial, but the dialmaker’s name is often stamped on the reverse of the dial or cast into the “falseplate”.
