Welcome to When on Google Earth here at A Hot Cup of Joe for the first time! I sneaked in from nowhere and snatched a victory after staring at WOGE 63 as Vix France, major period of occupation around the Hallstat period (5th-6th c. BCE).Â I was a little surprised that the usual participants hadn’t got it yet. I figured they must have been enjoying the summer and not paying attention and so I gave it a go… It was the 3rd clue that cinched it for me: a frieze of a hoplite on a quadriga chariot that had four spokes. I knew it could be as early as the 6th century BCE. Once I realized it was the Vix Krater, it was just a matter of typing Vix, France into Google Earth!
I labored over a couple of sites to use for WOGE 64, but ultimately settled on this one:
My two fears are 1) it’ll be too easy and 2) it’ll be too difficult.
