A Treasure for 350 Years - Good things were happening in New France in 1665. The New World colony had been under the tight control of the Company of One Hundred Associates since 1627.

How Humans Reshaped the Horse Through Millennia - When horses became domesticated in Kazakhstan and neighbouring regions some 5,500 years ago, it was a game changer for the human race.
