Bosnia and herzegovina / Bosna i Hercegovina / Босна и Херцеговина / Bósnia-Herzegovina

Is a country in South-East Europe, on the Balkan Peninsula. Bordered by Croatia to the north, west and south, Serbia to the east, and Montenegro to the southeast, Bosnia and Herzegovina (also: Bosnia-Herzegovina/Bosnia and Hercegovina) is almost landlocked, except for 26 kilometres of Adriatic Sea coastline, centered on the town of Neum. The interior of the country is mountainous centrally and to the south, hilly in the northwest, and flatland in the northeast. Inland is the larger geographic region with a moderate continental climate, marked by hot summers and cold, snowy winters. The southern tip of the country has a Mediterranean climate and plane topography.
The country is home to three ethnic groups so-called "constituent peoples", a term unique for Bosnia-Herzegovina. These are: Bosniaks, the largest population group of three, with Bosnian Serbs in second and Bosnian Croats in third. Regardless of ethnicity, a citizen of Bosnia and Herzegovina is often identified in English as a Bosnian. The term Herzegovinian is maintained as a regional rather than ethnic distinction, while Herzegovina has no precisely defined borders of its own. The country is politically decentralized and comprises two governing entities, the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Republika Srpska, with District Brcko.
Formerly one of the six federal units constituting the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Bosnia and Herzegovina gained its independence during the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s. Bosnia and Herzegovina can be described as a Parliamentary democracy that is transforming its economy into a market-oriented system, and it is a potential candidate for membership in the European Union and NATO. Additionally, the nation has been a member of the Council of Europe since 24 April 2002 and a founding member of the Mediterranean Union upon its establishment on 13 July 2008.

Pre-Slavic Period (until 958)
Bosnia has been inhabited since at least the Neolithic age. The earliest Neolithic population became known in the Antiquity as the Illyrians. Celtic migrations in the fourth century BC were also notable. Concrete historical evidence for this period is scarce, but overall it appears that the region was populated by a number of different peoples speaking distinct languages. Conflict between the Illyrians and Romans started in 229 BC, but Rome would not complete its annexation of the region until AD 9.
It was precisely in what is now Bosnia and Herzegovina that Rome fought one of the most difficult battles in its history since the Punic Wars, as described by the Roman historian Seutonius. This was the Roman campaign against the revolt of indigenous communities from Illyricum, known in history as the Great Illyrian Revolt, known also as Pannonian revolt, or Bellum Batonianum, the latter named after the name of two leaders of the revolting Illyrian communities, Bato/Baton of the Daesitiates, and Bato of the Breuci. The Great Illyrian revolt was a revolt of Illyrians against the Romans, more specifically Illyrian revolt against Tiberius' attempt to recruit Illyrians for his war against the Germans. The Illyrians put up a fierce resistance to the most powerful army on earth at the time (the Roman Army) for four years (AD 6 to AD 9). The revolting Illyrians were finally subdued by Rome in AD 9, with Roman side suffering heavy losses. The last Illyrian stronghold, in which Illyrian defence caused admiration of Roman historians is said to have been Arduba. Bato of Daesitiates was captured and taken to Italy. It is alleged that when Tiberius asked Bato and the Daesitiates why they had rebelled, Baton was reputed to have answered: "You Romans are to blame for this; for you send as guardians of your flocks, not dogs or shepherds, but wolves." Bato spent the rest of his life in the Italian town of Ravenna.
In the Roman period, Latin-speaking settlers from all over the Roman Empire settled among the Illyrians, and Roman soldiers were encouraged to retire in the region.
The land was originally part of the Illyria up until the Roman occupation. Following the split of the Roman Empire between 337 and 395, Dalmatia and Pannonia became parts of the Western Roman Empire. Some claim that the region was conquered by the Ostrogoths in 455. It subsequently changed hands between the Alans and Huns. By the sixth century, Emperor Justinian had reconquered the area for the Byzantine Empire. The Illyrians were conquered by the Avars in the sixth century

Medieval Bosnia (958–1463)
Modern knowledge of the political situation in the west Balkans during the Early Middle Ages is patchy and confusing. Upon their arrival, the Slavs brought with them a tribal social structure which probably fell apart and gave way to Feudalism only with Frankish penetration into the region in the late ninth century. It was also around this time that the Illyrians were Christianized. Bosnia and Herzegovina, because of its geographic position and ter

Gordon Scott (1926 - 2007)

Lifeguard cast as a 'husky' Tarzan

Gordon Scott was the 11th actor to portray Edgar Rice Burroughs' character Tarzan on the screen, following such stars as the Olympic athletes Herman Brix and Buster Crabbe, and, the quintessential ape-man, the swimmer Johnny Weissmuller.

Scott made five films as Tarzan, including one of the outstanding films in the series, Tarzan's Greatest Adventure (1959), which had a formidable array of villains, including Anthony Quayle and, in a pre-Bond role, Sean Connery. He later made films in Italy, including spaghetti westerns and "sword and sandal" epics, notably Romolo e Remo (Duel of the Titans, 1961), in which he was Remus to Steve Reeves's Romulus.

Born Gordon M. Werschkull in Portland, Oregon, in 1926, Scott attended the University of Oregon, where he majored in physical education. Drafted into the US Army in 1944, he served as a drill sergeant and military policeman until 1947, after which his jobs included fireman, cowboy and salesman of farm machinery.

He was working as a lifeguard at the Sahara Hotel in Las Vegas when he was spotted by a talent agent. "He and his bride were honeymooning there," Scott said, and they saw me working out. He told me the producer Sol Lesser was looking for a new Tarzan, and that he would arrange a test. I tested on a Thursday, and was signed on Saturday.

Lesser, who had already tested nearly 200 hopefuls, was impressed by Scott's 6ft 3in physique, his 19in biceps, handsome looks and fluid movements. "I was a swimmer, diver and gymnast," said Scott, "and while in the Army I became involved in weight training. Tarzan was ideal for me because I didn't have too much dialogue."

Scott made his screen debut in Tarzan's Hidden Jungle (1955). Despite a suitably menacing villain (Jack Elam), it proved a pedestrian affair. The Hollywood Reporter said, "The only noteworthy feature is the introduction of a new Tarzan, a good-looking lad with a husky physique that would make the ordinary male cut his own throat in pure frustration." Playing the nurse heroine was the actress Vera Miles, who began a romance with her leading man. Scott and Miles were married in 1956, and had a son, Mike, but divorced in 1959. Tarzan and the Lost Safari (1957) was the first Tarzan film in colour, and was partly filmed on location. "Lesser had sold the rights to Sy Weintraub, and he was the one who really turned things around," Scott said. "He filmed the movies in colour and shot them in Africa."

Though its UK-shot studio scenes were markedly less convincing than the location footage, the film established Scott, who was allowed to do his own stunts, "except for a 120ft dive", as a superior Tarzan. Burroughs's grandson, Danton, said,

Scott was a wonderful Tarzan who played the character as an intelligent and nice man, who carried himself well, much as my grandfather had originally written him. He also gave a wonderful rendition of Tarzan's call, which didn't have so much yodel in it.

The character of Jane had been missing from Scott's first two Tarzan films, but she returned for Tarzan's Fight for Life (1958), played by Eve Brent. "But they only used her twice," recalled Scott. "Then they dropped the chimp and Jane and the boy." Tarzan and the Trappers, released in 1958, was something of an oddity - not really a feature film, it consisted of three television pilots that Lesser had been unable to sell to the networks and had then edited together. It had a limited release and is rarely seen.

Tarzan's Greatest Adventure (1959), directed by John Guillermin, is regarded as the best of the later Tarzan movies. Filmed in Kenya, the tense and suspenseful adventure has well-drawn characters, beautiful photography and a strong script. Tarzan the Magnificent (1960) was a poor successor, and was the last Tarzan film made by Scott, who settled in Rome, where he appeared in over 20 films, including Maciste contro il vampiro (Maciste against the Vampire, 1961), Ercole contro Mylock (Conquest of Mycene, 1963), Buffalo Bill, l'eroe de far west (Buffalo Bill, Hero of the Far West, 1965) and Gli Uomini del passo pasante (The Tramplers, 1966), a violent "spaghetti western" in which he played a Civil War veteran who returns home to find that his father (Joseph Cotten) is ruthlessly burning out settlers and instigating lynchings.

In later years, Scott liked to appear at conventions to meet fans and sign autographs, and spoke wistfully of film fame, stating, "I never thought about acting, but once you're in it, it spoils you for anything else. The money's so easy, you meet beautiful people and it's a kind of fantasy world."
