Los nativos americanos haban modificado el paisaje antes de la llegada de los europeos
Un nuevo estudio de investigadores, del Departamento de geologa de la Universidad Baylor, demuestra que la utilizacin de
la tierra por los Amerindios tuvo un impacto generalizado en el paisaje del Este Norteamericano; adems el desarrollo de las
llanuras inundables se hizo varios centenares de aos antes de la llegada de las grandes zonas de asentamiento europeos.
Los investigadores asignaron al principio de la colonizacin la utilizacin de las tierras, as como la deforestacin, la labranza y
la construccin de presas. Esto habra influido en los sistemas hidrolgicos actuales en el Este de Norteamrica.
Aunque estudios previos sugeran que la utilizacin de las tierras de los Amerindios en el Este de Norteamrica haba sido la
causa de cambios en los sistemas hidrolgicos, pocas pruebas directas se haban podido proporcionar hasta ahora

15 tombes Byzantines dcouvertes dans le centre de la Rpublique arabe syrienne
Une spulture de l'poque byzantine a t dcouverte dans le village d'al-Ruba Zighreen, 30 km
au nord-est de Hama; il y avait un certain nombre de tombes l'intrieur desquelles on a pu
retrouver des poteries, du mtal, du verre et des pices d'or.
Abdul- Qader Farzat, Chef du Dpartement d'Archologie d'Hama, a prcis que le tombeau
possde une entre de 110 cm de long et 60 cm de large menant une petite pice entoure de
cinq chambres comprenant trois tombes chacune.
Les tombes ont une longueur de 175 cm, une profondeur de 40 cm et elles sont spares par
un espace de 25 cm.
Ce sont donc 15 tombes qui ont t dcouvertes dans la spulture.
Certaines des tombes contenaient plus d'un cercueil recouvert de panneaux de briques, tandis que d'autres taient
recouverts de pierres de basalte non tailles.

Las excavaciones de Marden Henge revelan un edificio ceremonial (Reino Unido)
Arquelogos de English Heritage descubrieron una construccin ceremonial de 4500 aos de antigedad.
Este descubrimiento tuvo lugar durante unas excavaciones recientes, que duraron ms de seis semanas, en Marden Henge,
uno de los monumentos prehistricos ms importantes de Gran Bretaa, pero tambin el peor comprendido.
La estructura se descubri en el emplazamiento de un pequeo henge, desconocido hasta entonces, en los alrededores del
famoso Marden Henge; se trata de uno de los edificios neolticos mejor conservados de Gran Bretaa al margen de los
Orkneys.
En equilibrio precario en la cumbre de un talud, y con una apertura a la derecha sobre la pendiente hacia la zanja interna,
parece ser una eleccin poco probable para un hbitat. Sin embargo, pudo ser un emplazamiento privilegiado para ofrecer
una vista hacia el interior del henge, con el fin de observar las actividades en su centro.

Roman Roads not Roman after all? - Tarmac's Bayston Hill quarry. Shropshire (United Kingdom)
A discovery at Tarmac's Bayston Hill quarry in Shropshire has thrown into question the belief that Roman invaders
introduced roads to Britain.
Excavations carried out by environmental consultants SLR at the site suggest that the Romans may have made use of
existing roads engineered by Iron Age Britons.
The find shows that a metalled and cambered roadway, was constructed in the first century BC - a 100 years before the
Emperor Claudius sent troops to conquer Britain.

COMPETITIONS - Expression of Interest (EOI): Historic Environment: Local Authority Capacity by English
Heritage. Deadline for nomination: 21 April 2011
Reductions to budgets mean that nearly everything local government does is being re-evaluated and historic environment
services, which are non statutory and have often evolved to meet the needs of the local community, are not exempt.
To respond to this key stakeholders have got together to support authorities as they make these difficult decisions, to
explore how to retain a focus on strategic heritage outcomes, reduce unnecessary bureaucracy and process and pool
resources across public bodies and engage civic societies more effectively. HELAC represents a partnership initiative with
English Heritage and the LGA being joined by the Association of Local Government Archaeological Officers, the Institute of
Historic Building Conservation and the Planning Officers Society. The first phase will see the partners working closely with a
number of nominated areas as they adapt services to meet new pressures. That process should see a variety of different
options for delivering a successful service emerge, each with an emphasis on partnership working, reducing unnecessary
process and working more effectively with other bodies...

Los humanos ms modernos procedan del sur de frica, sugiere un
estudio
Un estudio gentico de grupos nmadas africanos sugiere que los humanos ms
modernos evolucionaron desde el sur de frica, en lugar de proceder del este
como sugera un estudio previo, segn han informado cientficos este mes.
El equipo, dirigido por Brenna Henn de la Universidad de Stanford California, ha
llevado a cabo el estudio gentico de mayor envergadura sobre los cazadores
nmadas que vivan en frica hasta el momento. Tambin compararon el ADN con muestras de otras poblaciones africanas y
europeas.
Analizaron polimorfismos de nucleotidos simples (SNP), que constituyen pequeas variaciones de secuencia de ADN entre
grupos de gente. Los SNPs pueden ayudar a enfatizar las relaciones gentica,s la divergencia evolutiva e incluso
enfermedades.
Los resultados revelaron que los bosquimanos de Namibia y Khomani del sur de frica, los pigmeos Biaka de frica central y
los Sandawe del frica oriental, son los que presentan los niveles ms altos de diversidad gentica en el mundo, dice un
equipo.
La diversidad gentica es un indicador de la antigedad de los pueblos. En principio, cuando ms antigua la poblacin, ms
tiempo ha tenido para construir su diversidad.
Utilizando informacin gentica y localizaciones geogrficas de los grupos de cazadores nmadas, el equipo dedujo que el
origen de los humanos modernos, el Homo sapiens, se sita en el frica del Sur.

Artefactos en Tejas precedentes a la cultura Clovis de 2,500 aos, Nuevos estudios. Tejas (EE.
UU.)
Los investigadores en Tejas han descubierto cientos de artefactos humanos en una capa del terreno que se
sita directamente bajo un conjunto de reliquias Clovis, lo cual ampla la evidencia de que otras culturas
precedieron a la cultura Clovies en Norteamrica. Este conjunto de herramientas pre-Clovis parece tener
entre 13.200 y 15.500 aos de antigedad e incluye tecnologa de hojas y bifaces que podran haber sido
adoptados ms tarde, e incluso mejorados, por la cultura Clovis. La poblacin Clovis, cuyas herramientas
eran conocidas por sus distintivas puntas onduladas, ha sido considerada como los primeros pobladores de
Norteamrica alrededor de 13.000 aos atrs. Durante los ltimos aos, las evidencias encontradas de forma repartida han
sealado a culturales anteriores. Pero tal evidencia ha sido rebatida en parte por el hecho de que se han recuperado muy
pocos artefactos.

Power Structure at El Tajin Revealed: City was Not Governed by One Single Person - Mexico
New hypotheses about the last stage and government of El Tajin civilization point out to a rule that was not exclusive of
one person but of several, as announced in a conference series organized by the National Institute of Anthropology and
History (INAH).
According to studies performed at the Veracruz archaeological zone by Dr Arturo Pascual, from the National Autonomous
University of Mexico (UNAM), El Tajin experimented in its last stage intense transformations in its government and ideology
that were captured in its architecture and iconography.

Power Structure at El Tajin Revealed: City was Not Governed by One Single Person
- Mexico
New hypotheses about the last stage and government of El Tajin civilization point out to a
rule that was not exclusive of one person but of several, as announced in a conference series
organized by the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH).
According to studies performed at the Veracruz archaeological zone by Dr Arturo Pascual,
from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), El Tajin experimented in its last
stage intense transformations in its government and ideology that were captured in its
architecture and iconography.
In this sense, near 800-850 AD, the ancient Mesoamerican city suffered a profound change in its government after the
accession of a new group of a lineage linked to the figure of 13 Rabbit, depicted at the Edificio de las Columnas pillars.
At the reliefs, characters with the same calendar name are represented at the western portico (dated between 800-850
AD) and at the eastern one (900-950 AD).

Archaeologists Investigate Iraqi Marshes for Origins of Mesopotamian Cities - Iraq
Three National Science Foundation-supported researchers recently undertook the first non-Iraqi archaeological
investigation of the Tigris-Euphrates delta in nearly 20 years. Archeologists Jennifer Pournelle and Carrie Hritz, with
geologist Jennifer Smith, carried out the study late last year to look for links between wetland resources and the
emergence of Mesopotamian cities.
"Mesopotamia"--Greek for "the land between the rivers"--is an area about 300 miles long and 150 miles wide straddling
the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, which now run through Iraq, northeastern Syria, southeastern Turkey and southwestern
Iran. It is broadly considered a cradle of civilization, because urban societies first developed there, about six thousand
years ago.

Jordan Wants to Retrieve Major Christian Relics
Jordan's archaeology chief says he has a solid legal case to press for the return of 70 ancient lead books stolen and
smuggled into Israel
Ziad al-Saad says the relics could be the earliest Christian writing in existence.
If authenticated, he says they would be the most significant find in Christian archaeology since the discovery of the Dead
Sea Scrolls in 1947.
He says there is strong evidence that the material was excavated in a northern cave by a Jordanian Bedouin five years
ago. But they made their way into the hands of an Israeli Bedouin.
He said Sunday that initial carbon and metallurgy tests performed by British experts date the material, depicting messianic
symbols and written in archaic Hebrew, to the 1st century A.D.

Los americanos prehistricos cambiaban el chocolate por turquesas? Restos

Restos de un componente qumico en el cacao-el ingrediente ms importante del chocolatese encontraron en varios recipientes para beber en varios sitios arqueolgicos de Pueblo

Las antiguas gentes Puebloan levantaron el complejo, el epicentro de una cultura ancestral

Pero el cacao, una fruta tropical que crece en Amrica central y del sur, se cultivaba en la

Los hallazgos sugieren que el complejo en Nuevo Mjico tambin sirvi como una lugar de cambio para las poblaciones de
Mesoamrica y los Puebloans entre los siglos 11 y 14- y que los dos grupos estaban altamente conectados ms de lo que se
haba pensado con anterioridad, afirm un estudio dirigido por Dorothy Washburn.

Online lecture: Ur of the Chaldees Lecture by Penn Museum.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (USA)
Dr. Richard L. Zettler, Co-curator of Iraqs Ancient Past gives a one-hour
lecture about Biblical Ur of the Chaldees, one of the largest and most
important Mesopotamian cities. Drawing on Sir Leonard Woolleys
excavations in the 1920s and 30s, he presents a colorful portrait of the
city that existed circa 2100-1600 BCE, a city with a towering ziggurat and
crowded residential areas. The city that Woolley so painstakingly
uncovered is not only the city he claimed Abraham walked, but also the model for our understanding of ancient
Mesopotamian urbanism today.

Libyan Arab Jamahiriya Archaeological Sites
The Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) and the US Committee of the Blue Shield (USCBS) call on the international
community to protect the ancient sites and antiquities of Libya, which are now facing very real threats of damage and
destruction caused by the civil unrest and military action taking place there.
While our thoughts are primarily for the safety of the people harms way, the cultural heritage and archaeological resources
located in Libya are irreplaceable elements of the worlds shared memory, going back thousands of years. The importance
of guarding these treasures while military operations are underway cannot be overestimated.
In this context information is essential, particularly up to date knowledge of the locations of cultural heritage and
archaeological sites. We have posted this map to provide locations of sites in Libya and to illustrate just how close so many
are to the danger.

Diving Ice Age Mexico - Clues about the earliest Americans emerge from the Yucatn's watery
underworld
Clues about the earliest Americans emerge from the Yucatns watery underworld
Beneath the surface of Mexicos Yucatn peninsula is a massive network of caves that forms a world unto
itself. Until 7,600 years ago, the caves were mostly dry, providing shelter and naturally occurring pools of
drinkable water to people and animals living in a region with few rivers. As the glaciers in North America
melted and sea levels rose, so did the water levels in the caves, preserving the traces of human activity in
place. These water-filled spaces, called cenotes, are largely unexplored, but a dedicated group of
archaeologists and divers are working together to investigate them

Wartime German Bunker Discovered by Workers in Warsaw Laying a New Tram
Line - WARSAW - POLAND
Workers in Warsaw laying a new tram line have uncovered a German bunker dating back to
World War II, officials said Thursday.
The bunker was discovered in recent days at Plac Zbawiciela, or Savior's Square, a major
traffic hub in the Polish capital where tram tracks and the street are undergoing thorough
renovation.
City archaeologist Barbara Piotrowska said it was a surprise that such a massive concrete
and metal structure had remained hidden from view for many decades in the city center. She said it will require specialized
equipment and the shutting down of the tram power line for the bunker to be moved. It will then go to a museum.

Language May Have Helped Early Humans Spread Out of Africa
The story of humanity's prehistoric expansion across the planet is recorded in our genes. And, apparently, the story of the
spread of language is hidden in the sounds of our words. That's the finding of a new study, which concludes that both
people and languages spread out from an African homeland by a similar processand that language may have been the
cultural innovation that fueled our ancestors' momentous migrations

India's Underground Water Temples - GUJARAT - INDIA
Descend into any of Gujarats stepwells, and the first thing you might notice is the
temperature changethough they are bone dry, its nonetheless like stepping into a pool of
cool water. The second sensation is disorientation. They are marvels of proportion and
symmetry, but theyre also recursive, Escher-esque, and vertiginous. The final impression, as
you look up, down, and through the stepwell, is surprise that something as mundane as a
well can be both monumental and intimate

The Sacred Landscape of Ancient Ireland - Evidence from both excavations and
rare manuscripts reveal much about early Ireland's cosmology and its people's
deep connection to the land
Tara near the midpoint of the north-south line connecting Emain Macha and Dn Ailinne. The
significance of this arrangement is still unknown, but it is notable. Archaeological work
shows that early activity at these sites may have had to do with burials, and that these
enclosures were constructed during the Iron Age. Surprisingly, none of them are suitable for
defense. Instead, each seems to mark off an area that only makes sense if viewed as sacred

Sands, Not Lights, Cover Gaza Archaeology Sites - Palestine
Five thousand years of fascinating history lie beneath the sands of the Gaza Strip, from blinded biblical hero Samson to
British general Allenby.
The flat, sandy lands on the Mediterranean's southeastern shore have been ruled by Ancient Egyptians, Philistines,
Romans, Byzantines and Crusaders.
Alexander the Great besieged the city. Emperor Hadrian visited. Mongols raided Gaza, and 1,400 years ago Islamic armies
invaded. Gaza has been part of the Ottoman Empire, a camp for Napoleon and a First World War battleground.

North Korea's Full Moon Tower - A joint project between the two Koreas searches
for their shared history
At the foot of Mount Songak, in the center of the Korean peninsula, sits Manwoldae, a vast
tenth-century royal palace complex built by the Goryeo, one of medieval Koreas least-known
dynasties. There is an ancient explanation for this gap in knowledge about medieval Korean
history: Although the Goryeo ruled for almost 400 years, they left very few records of their
own, and the sparse texts in which they are mentioned were written by historians from the
succeeding Joseon Dynasty. There is also a modern reason why we know so little. Most
Goryeo sites, including Manwoldae, are located in North Korea, which is almost entirely closed to foreign researchers.

Rivista online - Centro Universitario Europeo per i Beni Culturali di Ravello: Territori della
Cultura, n3, 2011
All'inizio degli anni ottanta l'Europa unita, malgrado ricorrenti solenni dichiarazioni, era soltanto il sogno
di pochi idealisti.
Gi da allora per, andava diffondendosi la convinzione della necessit di una formazione europeistica della
nuova classe dirigente: in particolare si riteneva che ai giovani dovessero proporsi le dimensioni e le
prospettive di un'Europa che non fosse solo un compendio di storie, magari gloriose ma particolari, e
neppure un insieme di Stati, ognuno autonomo ed emulo degli altri, ma una Patria comune.
A fondamento di essa si ergeva l'immenso patrimonio di cultura e di storia, prodotto insieme nei millenni. Appunto la
cultura comune sembrava poter dare un contenuto all'utopia.
L'Universit fu quindi giustamente individuata come strumento insostituibile di preparazione e di sostegno dell'Unione
Europea. L'Universit Europea era da pensare daccapo, e comunque da organizzare non ad imitazione di quelle nazionali e
meno ancora come sovrapposizione ad esse, ma piuttosto come complementare e come scuola di perfezionamento.
Il Centro Universitario Europeo per i Beni culturali nacque appunto come sperimentatore e pioniere di quella che dovrebbe
essere l'Universit europea per i beni culturali.

Archaeology and the Anxiety of Loss: Effacing Preservation from the History of Renaissance Rome - Italy
By David Karmon
It is a famous paradox that Renaissance builders, despite their avowed reverence for classical antiquity, caused widespread
archaeological destruction in Rome. As early as the 14th century, humanists criticized the devastation caused by new
construction in the papal capital, and later archaeologists applied the scientific techniques of their new discipline to
substantiate these claims. But the blanket condemnation of Renaissance destruction is both unfair and misleading. This
article investigates how fear for the survival of archaeological artifacts, or the anxiety of loss, has distorted our
understanding of early modern interventions on ancient sites. By drawing on new evidence for preservation practices, it
explores why these were effaced from the historical record and invites us to rethink the history of archaeology in
Renaissance Rome.

Astronomical Evidence for the Timing of the Panathenaia - Acropolis. Athens (Greece)
Article by Efrosyni Boutsikas
For the first time, the role of the night sky in the performance of nocturnal festivals in ancient Greece is considered. This
study presents a reconstruction of the Athenian night sky as it would have been visible from the Acropolis during the
celebration of the Panathenaia. A link is suggested between the timing of the festival, held on the Acropolis, and the
movement of the constellation of Draco, which would have been visible in the night sky during this time. This association is
supported by the half-human half-snake early Athenian kings, the myths associated with the festival, the snake that lived
in the Erechtheion crypt, and the role of Athena in the Giantomachy. The visible surroundings of the Athenian Acropolis
that participants of the nocturnal rites would have seen offer a more nuanced understanding of the relationship between
Greek cosmology, astronomy, and ritual practice.

FELLOWSHIPS - Global Heritage Fund Preservation Fellowship Program - Supporting Preservation Projects in
the Developing World. Deadline for applications: 30 April 2011
The purpose of the Global Heritage Preservation Fellowship Program is to support cultural heritage conservation and
community development work with the potential for significant contributions to the long-term preservation of endangered
cultural heritage sites in developing countries by international and in-country scholars and students. We feel strongly that
by supporting this generation in their preservation efforts and education we can help to secure endangered sites for future
generations.
Global Heritage Fund (GHF) supports one-year projects in the disciplines of archaeological conservation, historic
preservation, heritage management, conservation science, site management planning, GIS and mapping, and sustainable
tourism and community development. GHF encourages interdisciplinary and collaborative projects, especially those that
combine disciplines in novel and potentially productive ways focused on best practices in preservation of endangered
cultural heritage sites in developing countries.
Other qualifications being equal, preference is given to candidates whose projects have the greatest likelihood of having
long-term conservation and community benefits for endangered global heritage sites in developing countries. Preference is
also given to projects at Inscribed or Tentative List World Heritage Sites, although in exceptional circumstances a site with
a demonstrated potential for World Heritage Site inscription will be considered.
Awards will be approximately $2,000, and grantees will receive half (50%) of the award prior to the field season and half
(50%) upon acceptance of the Final Report.

and/or in the first 10 years of their career - to travel between EU and countries bordering the EU. Since 2003, STEP which stands for Supporting Travel for European Partnerships - Beyond Travel Grants have supported the movement of
hundreds of people across European borders by providing between 250 and 700.
Funding mobility and exchange links closely to ECFs overall objectives and specifically to our European Neighbourhood
programme, which currently works with organisations in Belarus, Moldova, Ukraine and Turkey. Also high on our agenda is
support for people and projects in the Arab-Mediterranean regions. We especially welcome applications for STEP Beyond
Travel Grants from these regions.
STEP Beyond Travel Grants grants are supported by De BankGiroLoterij and De Lotto received through Prins Bernhard
Cultuurfonds. STEP Beyond Travel Grants from/to the countries of South Caucasus (Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia) and
Turkey are jointly funded with the Open Society Foundation (OSF).

COMPETITIONS - Expression of Interest (EOI): Historic Environment: Local Authority Capacity by English
Heritage. Deadline for nomination: 21 April 2011
Reductions to budgets mean that nearly everything local government does is being re-evaluated and historic environment
services, which are non statutory and have often evolved to meet the needs of the local community, are not exempt.
To respond to this key stakeholders have got together to support authorities as they make these difficult decisions, to
explore how to retain a focus on strategic heritage outcomes, reduce unnecessary bureaucracy and process and pool
resources across public bodies and engage civic societies more effectively. HELAC represents a partnership initiative with
English Heritage and the LGA being joined by the Association of Local Government Archaeological Officers, the Institute of
Historic Building Conservation and the Planning Officers Society. The first phase will see the partners working closely with a
number of nominated areas as they adapt services to meet new pressures. That process should see a variety of different
options for delivering a successful service emerge, each with an emphasis on partnership working, reducing unnecessary
process and working more effectively with other bodies...

COMPETITIONS - Competition Entry for Galileum in Solingen / Ren van Zuuk
Architekten (Germany)
The Regional Industrial Heritage Organization of Solingen, Germany has called for a
competition to redevelop the local observation using an old spherical gas container in order to
address the strong industrial character and historical context of the container and the local
architecture. The following project is an entry from Ren van Zuuk Architekten. The site is
located on the edge of a residential area near a railroad, from which the steel spire of the old
gas container is visible. With a diameter of 26 metres the container has a frame of eleven
columns that rest on 3m high concrete foundations. The original design is pragmatic in its approach. A sphere was used as
the most efficient model with the largest surface area available to function at the lowest cost. The staircase was built with
the same functional consideration as the rest of the building and it follows that, to use the existing spherical structure, the
new design would have to be approached with the same rigor.

El proyecto se inici en 1973, y varias reservas de tigres se crearon en el pas
parte de una estrategia de proteccin del centro. Las reas centrales fueron liberadas de todo tipo de actividad humana y las
reas de proteccin se sometieron o dedicaron a un uso orientado a la conservacin del terreno. Se disearon planes de gestin
para cada reserva de tigres, basados en los principios que desarrollamos abajo:
1. La eliminacin de toda forma de explotacin humana y de perturbacin bitica del rea central y la racionalizacin de las
actividades en la zona de proteccin.
2. Restriccin de la gestin del hbitat slo para reparar los daos que se hagan al ecosistema debido a la accin humana o a
otras interferencias, para facilitar la recuperacin del eco-sistema a su estado natural.
3. Monitorizacin de los cambios en la flora y fauna a lo largo del tiempo llevando a cabo investigacin sobre la vida salvaje.

Indian Survey Finds More Tigers, but Some Wonder
A new survey by the Indian government reports a 12% increase in the country's adult tiger
population. But some tiger experts think the numbers don't really add up.
A 2006 survey estimated that the country was home to 1165 to 1657 tigers. The latest
survey counts 1571 to 1875 tigers, almost 60% of the world's wild population, including 70
tigers that were found in the mangroves of the Ganges Delta of the Sundarbans, an area not
covered during the last survey, and another 30 from two other areasthe Orang Wildlife
Sanctuary in eastern India and the Sahyadari protected area in western Indiathat were left
out earlier. However, tigers are now squeezed into 22% less space than 5 years ago, to some 72,000 square kilometers
today.

Invasive species experts call for action in the basin of one of African Great Lakes,
Lake Tanganyika
Threats posed by invasive species and ways to monitor and control them will be discussed at a
meeting in the Republic of Burundi tomorrow, with special focus on invasive species that are
spreading in the basin of one of African Great Lakes, Lake Tanganyika.
Invasive species are species introduced to a new area where they spread causing significant
damage to biodiversity and the productivity of natural and agricultural ecosystems. In the
1990s for example, the invasion of water hyacinth and Nile perch in Lake Victoria caused
hundreds of fish species to disappear or become extinct and some of the ecosystem to collapse.

The Rise of Animal Law : A new area of study
By Greg Miller
Animal law is a relatively new area of study that examinesand often challengeshow the law treats animals. Some of those
who teach animal law courses describe themselves as activists; others shy away from that label. But many take issue with
a legal system that treats animals as property and provides few mechanisms for protecting their interests in court. Some of
these legal scholars have proposed strategies for advancing animal rights through steppingstone cases that erode the
notion of animals as property and grant them some of the same protections people have. Others, drawing inspiration from
the antislavery and civil rights movements, advocate a more direct effort to establish fundamental rights for animalsat
least for more cognitively sophisticated species such as great apes and cetaceans (see sidebar). No one is arguing that
orangutans should be given the right to vote, but some legal scholars see no reason why apes shouldn't have rights similar
to those of a child or a person in a coma. If these efforts succeed, there could be repercussions for everyone who works
with animalsincluding scientists.

Rumbles in the jungle - Naresh Subedi - Nepal
Office? The jungle. Colleagues? Elephants, rhinos and tigers. Naresh Subedi has many
stories to tell. Stories that are not only fascinating and impressive but that can also make
your hair stand on end.
Naresh Subedi works to save Nepals wildlife. He studies and monitors animals such as rhinos
and tigers, and actively involves local communities in conservation.
Naresh is currently involved in carrying out a rhino census in the Chitwan National Park,
which has the second largest population of greater one-horned rhino in the world. He
recently fitted radio collars on eight rhinos living in the park and now conducts regular patrols to monitor their movements.
This often means spending the whole night in the park, which is also home to tigers, elephants and gharials.

Gorilas en la Repblica Democrtica del Congo (DRC) estn muriendo, vctimas del trfico ilegal de animales y de la
prdida del hbitat
Los cientficos sospechan que el nmero de gorilas ha disminuido de forma dramtica en los ltimos 15 aos y han mostrado su
preocupacin designndolos como en peligro de extincin.
El gorila de Grauer, en ocasiones llamado gorila de llanura oriental, es a veces olvidado. No se encuentra a ninguno en los
zoos y puesto que el rea donde vive no es segura desde hace dcadas, es imposible que nos enteremos cada vez que uno
muere. Slo el apoyo de aquellos que realmente estn involucrados y se preocupan ha hecho posible que la Fundacin Fossey
comience a combatir la prdida del hbitat y el trfico de animales en DRC.
Desde el 2000, los donantes comprometidos nos han permitido trabajar con los lderes congoleos locales para crear nueve
reservas naturales a lo largo de las 27.000 millas cuadradas, casi todo el territorio que abarca el gorila de Grauer en
peligro de extincin y que es ligeramente mayor que el territorio de Ruanda. Esta aproximacin innovadora a la conservacinotorgando poderes a los habitantes locales para que gestionen sus propios recursos naturales- es la NICA estrategia de
conservacin que tendr resultados a largo plazo.
GRACE, el Centro de Educacin para la Rehabilitacin y Conservacin del Gorila, se preocupa de los gorilas rescatados y
hurfanos que podran morir si se dejan en la selva. Como miembro fundador de GRACE, nos hemos apoyado en las
donaciones de personas que a lo largo de los aos nos han ofrecido la financiacin necesaria para cuidar de los gorilas
rescatados en centros temporales, mientras que buscbamos el apoyo para construir y poner en marcha un centro
permanente. CADA gorila es importante para la supervivencia de las especies, por lo que estos hurfanos sern devueltos a
la selva en cuanto que hayan aprendido a vivir como un grupo.
Trabajar en DRC es peligroso y caro, pero el precio no es demasiado alto para salvar gorilas, para salvar uno de los
bosques tropicales ms importantes del mundo y muchas de las otras especies que viven en l.

thousand years. My confidence was shattered and my career took a turn for what I thought at the
time was the worst. After this, I decided to work on coastal conservation. This change, which
involved restoring mangroves, was actually a blessing in disguise. It gave me a platform to chart
completely unexplored territory in Pakistan.
Tahir Qureshi is Programme Director of IUCN Pakistans Coastal Ecosystem Unit. He was the first
forest officer to be kidnapped by a notorious gang of dacoits belonging to the renowned Baloch Chandio Tribe. The 60strong gang, armed with the latest weapons, were operating in densely forested areas.

The man who saves turtles - Malaysia
Nick saves sea turtles. In a nutshell thats what he does. But he has to look far beyond their nesting
grounds to make it work.
Nick has a PhD in turtle biology, but he says it did not prepare him for the real-world challenges of
turtle conservation.
After an early career in Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Palau as a marine biologist, Nick settled down in
north Borneo and established his own non- governmental organization, the Marine Research
Foundation (MRF), a non-profit entity geared to saving marine life across various countries and facing
differing threats. MRF, an IUCN Member, now serves as a base from which Nick addresses turtle conservation at various
levels, and with an ever-growing diversity of people.

International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) helps businesses value nature
Today, IUCN and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) released a
Guide to Corporate Ecosystem Valuation (CEV) a new message to enhance business
understanding of the benefits and value of ecosystem services like fresh water, food, fibre and
protection against natural disasters.
The economic value of nature and the services it provides us is enormous, but it is rarely taken
into account in policies, financial systems and markets. The Guide to Corporate Ecosystem
Valuation (CEV) aims to enable companies to better understand the value of natures services
that they affect and depend on. This will improve business decision-making by creating more alignment between
businesses financial, ecological and social objectives.

Virus humanos relacionados con las muertes de gorilas en peligro de
extincin
Un virus que causa una enfermedad respiratoria en los humanos se ha
asociado a la muerte de gorilas salvajes de montaa, segn informa un equipo
de investigadores de Estados Unidos y frica.
El hallazgo confirma que serias enfermedades pueden transmitirse de los
humanos a estos primates en peligro de extincin. Los humanos y los gorilas
comparten aproximadamente el 98 por ciento de su ADN, un hecho gentico
que ha llevado a la preocupacin de que los gorilas sean susceptibles de infectarse con las enfermedades infecciosas que
afectan a los humanos.
Investigadores del proyecto sin nimo de lucro Mountain Gorilla Veterinary; del Wildlife Health Centre en la Universidad de
California, Davis; del Centro for Infection and Immunity en la Universidad de Columbia y la Development Board de Ruanda
han publicado sus hallazgos en la revista Emerging Infectious Diseases, una publicacin de los centros americanos para el

El hielo que se deshace de la Antrtica est haciendo que los pinginos se mueran de hambre
Cada ao, desde 1979, el bilogo marino Wayne Trivelpiece, y su mujer, Susan, ambos pertenecientes a la National
Atmospheric Associations Antartic Ecosystem Research Division en San Diego, California, hacen frente a las glidas
temperaturas y a los veloces vientos de 40 kilmetros e media por hora para rastrear la alimentacin, cra y la migracin de los
pinginos barbejo y adelie. Durante este tiempo, las poblaciones que han estudiado en el Oeste de la pennsula antrtica y en
el cercano mar de Scotia han disminuido drsticamente, y unas cuantas se han extinguido, vctimas del calentamiento del
planeta que las priva de su hbitat helado. Ahora, en una recopilacin de informacin ms de 30 aos procedente de numerosas
bases alrededor de la Antrtica, los investigadores han concluido que los pinginos no slo estn desapareciendo sino que se

Rethinking Palm Oil
It's in our candy bars, soap and peanut butter it even powers some of our cars. Yet it is precisely this high demand that
makes palm oil one of the most controversial commodities on the market today. The rapid expansion of monoculture palm
oil plantations especially in Southeast Asia has led to the continuing destruction of the world's remaining tropical forests.

Luciano Andriamaro: Health and Fresh Water: Ingredients for Success in Madagascar
The crystal-clear waters of Madagascar's Nosivolo River hold more than beauty: they hold life. The river's waters support
19 endemic fish species, four of which are found in the Nosivolo and nowhere else.
So when, in September 2010, the river and its watershed was named a Ramsar site, it marked a milestone for CI and local
communities in a joint mission to create protected areas that ensure the long-term health of the river for the fish and for
the human population living nearby.
And Luciano Andriamaro, Science Support Program Manager for CI-Madagascar, understands well how important a healthy
river ecosystem is for ensuring benefits for both local communities and wildlife.

Online Study - Animals Find Sanctuary With Scientists
In an 85-square-kilometer swath of rainforest in Cte d'Ivoire's Ta National Park, monkeys call to one another, chimps drum
on tree trunks, and tiny antelopes rustle through the underbrush. That's where researchers have been studying primate
communities for more than 3 decades. Step outside the research zone, though, and the animal sounds fall silent. The
forest is noticeably emptier as a result of heavy poaching. Field researchers all over the world have noticed that long-term
research sites double as sanctuaries, but they've never had the numbers to prove it. Now they do

Peticin para salvar la Escuela de Primaria Phillis Wheatley NUEVA ORLEANS- EEUU
En nombre de DOCOMOMO US/ Luisiana les solicito que consideren firmar una peticin en lnea para salvar la histrica

en defensa de su alma mater, Si arrasis mi escuela, una parte de m muere con ella.
Desafortunadamente, nos hemos enterado de que no habr una revisin ante el Consejo Municipal y una peticin de propuesta
se ha puesto en marcha para la demolicin. Aparentemente y puesto que se trata de una demolicin iniciativa de la ciudad
para destruir un edificio que pertenece a la misma ciudad, el Consejo Municipal no tiene por qu revisar la peticin de
demolicin. No obstante, seguimos insistiendo en hacer un llamamiento para conservar la Escuela Wheatley que se incluy en
la lista World Monuments Fund Watch en 2010.
Esperamos obtener ms de 2.000 firmas y presentar la peticin ante el alcalde Landrieu y el Consejo Municipal.

AD Classics: Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University / I.M. Pei 1973 - ITHACA - NEW YORK STATE - USA
With a desire to make a dramatic statement while maintaining an optimal amount of
scenic views, transparent open spaces and windows beautifully contrast the heaviness
and boldness of the rectangular forms of concrete.
Located atop a 1,000-foot slope that overlooks Lake Cayuga in Ithaca, the museum
was designed by I.M. Pei and John L. Sullivan, with additional help from the firm Pei
Cobb Freed & Partners. The museum totals 61,000 square feet, with nine floors
stacked high above the ground, housing the exhibit spaces. One floor rests underground, where additional galleries and
meeting rooms are found. Through stacking the program instead of spreading it out over the lot, the architects were able
to perserve much of the surrounding landscape and views.

Seventy-Two Years After the Nazis Arrived, Restored Renaissance Synagogue to Reopen in ZAMOSC - Poland
One of the most important surviving synagogues in Poland, a Renaissance gem looted by the Nazis and suffering from
decades of neglect, is reopening this week after a meticulous restoration, part of an effort to reclaim the country's
decimated Jewish heritage.
The refurbishing of the synagogue in Zamosc, an eastern Polish town near the border with Ukraine, comes as Poland's tiny
remaining Jewish community is struggling to preserve some of the most important Jewish sites that survived the Holocaust
before they fall into irreversible decay.
But in a sign of how thorough Adolf Hitler's genocide was, there are almost no Jews left in the town. The cream-colored
house of prayer will now serve largely as a place for art exhibitions, concerts and other cultural events in the largely
Catholic area.

Herzog de Meuron's Triangle Tower Design Raises Eyebrows in Paris - France
The 590ft (180m) proposed Herzog de Meuron design labeled Triangle Tower, has been in the
spotlight over recent weeks after the cross-party council approved the towers protocol agreement.
Opposing the recent approval, Green party members are eager to share their thoughts commenting
that the colossal project is yet another office block according to party member Yves Contassot.
The controversy over the 40-story steel and glass building surely was anticipated; the French capital
has had a 30+ year drought of buildings over 121ft. In 1977 a ban was put into place, shortly after
the completion of the 689ft Tour Montparnasse, because Parisians feared that the city center would
lose its existing urban fabric to skyscrapers similar to the Montparnasse.

house next door to the North. We were only allowed 1 metre squared of obscured window on the Southern elevation, no
windows above the top of the wall on the Western elevation and 1 metre squared of window on the Northern elevation. We
had to set the building back from the road, decreasing the usable space on the site even further.

The Shard / Renzo Piano - London - United Kingdom
The 70-story mixed use tower even while under construction is the tallest building in Londons skyline. Adjacent to London
Bridge Station, the building offers increased density to a major public transport node, a key to and suggestive of future
London development. London based architectural photographer Andy Spain shared with us photographs he took a few
weeks ago of The Shard under construction. Be sure to take a look at our previous coverage of The Shard.

Architecture City Guide: Minneapolis - Minnesota - USA
This week our Architecture City Guide is headed to the city stars fall on. With a few
notable exceptions, one can hardly be called a starchitect if s/he hasnt designed
something in Minneapolis. Since 2005 the starchitects that have fallen on this City of
Lakes include Jean Nouvel, Herzog & de Mueron, Csar Pelli, Michael Graves, Steven Holl,
and Frank Gehry. This is a surprising number for a city just north of 380,000 people.
Few cities of this size could boast as much. Whats more our list of 12 is far from
complete. There are many wonderful historic and contemporary buildings mixed in with
the explosion of starchitecture. Please leave comments of buildings one should not miss when visiting Minneapolis.

November 2010
The guidance has been produced to help prevent conflicts between energy efficiency requirements in Part L
of the Building Regulations and the conservation of historic and traditionally constructed buildings. Much of
the advice will also be relevant where thermal upgrading is planned without the specific need to comply
with these regulations.
This advice also acts as second tier supporting guidance in the interpretation of the Building Regulations

Le Corbusier, Homme de Lettres
Author: M. Christine Boyer
ISBN-13: 978-156-898-980-8
On his French identity card, legendary architect Le Corbusier listed his profession as "Homme de
Lettres" (Man of Letters). Celebrated for his architecture, which numbers fewer than sixty buildings, Le
Corbusier also wrote more than fifty books, hundreds of articles, and thousands of letters. Le Corbusier,
Homme de Lettres is the first in-depth study of Le Corbusier as a writer as well as an architect. Featuring
more than two hundred archival images from Le Corbusier's life and work, this groundbreaking book
examines his many writing projects from 1907 to 1947, as well as his letters written to two mentors: Charles L'Eplattenier
and William Ritter. In Le Corbusier, Homme de Lettres author M. Christine Boyer focuses on the development of his writing
style as it morphed from romantic prose to aphorisms and telegraphic bulletins. For each of his books, Le Corbusier was
meticulous about the design of the page layout, the form of the type, the impact of the ideas, and even the promotional
material. As a man of letters, Le Corbusier expected to contribute to the cultural atmosphere of the twentieth century. Le
Corbusier, Homme de Lettres shows for the first time how his voluminous output books, diaries, letters, sketchbooks,
travel notebooks, lecture transcriptions, exposition catalogs, journal articles reflects not just a compulsion to write, but a
passion for advancing his ideas about the relationship between architecture, urbanism, and society in a new machine age.

Altermondialiste et Architecture
Par Gustave MASSIAH
ISBN: 978-2-7071-6541-1
An alterglobalist strategy In French only. Depuis les annes 1990, le mouvement altermondialiste s'est impos
comme une des principales forces de transformation du monde.
Mais si la crise globale de la mondialisation capitaliste a largement confirm ses analyses, beaucoup
s'interrogent sur les perspectives de ce mouvement, dont certains pensent qu'il doit trouver un nouveau
souffle . D'o l'intrt de ce livre, o Gustave Massiah, l'un de ses acteurs majeurs depuis de longues annes,
montre la fois les multiples facettes, souvent mconnues, d'une nbuleuse particulirement dynamique et propose des axes
stratgiques pour son dveloppement.

By John H. Stubbs
ISBN: 978-0-470-26049-4
February 2009
Imagine the world without the Parthenon, Notre Dame, the Wailing Wall, the Taj Mahal, the Forbidden
City, Machu Picchu, or other iconic buildings, monuments, and places. What if the more impressive historic
buildings and sites we encounter in our everyday lives disappeared? Civilization would simply not exist as
we know it.
Fortunately, awareness of the importance of protecting the worlds cultural patrimonyin particular, its architectural
heritageis at an all-time high and is growing. Time Honored, A Global View of Architectural Conservation explores the
reasons for this phenomenon, explains how international architectural heritage conservation practice operates, and
considers where this firmly rooted global interest may lead

From Bangkok to Durban: Time to act on Cancun deal
The first round of UN climate change negotiations since the Cancun summit in December, being
held in Bangkok from April 3-8, will start on the work plan agreed at Cancun for 2011. The aim
of the meeting is to build on the Cancun agreements and to work towards establishing a new
global climate change regime, to complement or replace the Kyoto Protocol, whose first
commitment period expires in late 2012.

Urgent action needed to protect Earth's blue carbon such as mangroves,
seagrasses and tidal marshes
The destruction of coastal carbon ecosystems, such as mangroves, seagrasses and tidal
marshes, is leading to rapid and long-lasting emissions of CO2 into the ocean and
atmosphere, according to 32 of the worlds leading marine scientists.
That key conclusion highlights a series of warnings and recommendations developed by the
new International Working Group on Coastal Blue Carbon, which convened its first meeting
in Paris last month. The Working Group was created as an initial step in advancing the
scientific, management and policy goals of the Blue Carbon Initiative, whose founding members include Conservation
International (CI), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic
Commission (IOC) of UNESCO.

El objetivo de la Unin Europea de limitar el calentamiento global es casi imposible, afirman los investigadores
Los negociadores internacionales en una conferencia promovida por Naciones Unidas sobre clima y que termina hoy en
Bangkok han subrayado reiteradamente el objetivo de mantener el calentamiento global de este siglo no ms de 2 grados.
Pero los resultados de un estudio sobre el clima del gobierno canadiense y publicado el mes pasado sugieren que es
posible que el calentamiento global se limite al objetivo de 2 grados, afirman los cientficos que realizaron este estudio.
En el estudio, cientficos de Environment Canada, una agencia gubernamental, simularon en su modelo varios escenarios de
concentraciones de gas efecto invernadero hasta el ao 2100. En esta situacin con las mayores concentraciones de carbono,
la concentracin de C02 en la atmsfera subi alarmantemente de su nivel actual, cerca de 390 partes por milln, a 920, y la
temperatura global y terrestre subi 4,9 grados ms que los niveles de 2005. Pero incluso en una situacin en la cual las
reducciones de emisiones hicieron que los niveles de CO2 subieran a 450 ppm en 2050, las temperaturas subieron 2,3
grados centgrados al final del siglo, 2C ms que los marcados en el objetivo.

Degraded coastal wetlands contribute to climate change
Drainage and degradation of coastal wetlands emit significant amounts of carbon dioxide
directly to the atmosphere and lead to decreased carbon sequestration, a new report has found.
The report, written in partnership with the World Bank, International Union for Conservation of
Nature (IUCN) and wetland specialists ESA PWA, calls for coastal wetlands to be protected and
incentives for avoiding their degradation and improving their restoration to be included into
carbon emission reduction strategies and in climate negotiations.

Diminution record d'ozone au ple Nord
Des conditions mtorologiques exceptionnelles conduisent ces dernires semaines une diminution d'ozone sans prcdent en
Arctique. Les observations (sol et satellite) par les chercheurs du Laboratoire atmosphres, milieux, observations spatiales
(LATMOS, CNRS/UVSQ/UPMC) et les modles franais indiquent une diminution qui atteignait environ 40 % la fin du mois de

El hielo que se deshace de la Antrtica est haciendo que los pinginos se mueran de hambre

Atmospheric Associations Antartic Ecosystem Research Division en San Diego, California, hacen frente a las glidas
temperaturas y a los veloces vientos de 40 kilmetros e media por hora para rastrear la alimentacin, cra y la migracin de los
pinginos barbejo y adelie. Durante este tiempo, las poblaciones que han estudiado en el Oeste de la pennsula antrtica y en
el cercano mar de Scotia han disminuido drsticamente, y unas cuantas se han extinguido, vctimas del calentamiento del
planeta que las priva de su hbitat helado. Ahora, en una recopilacin de informacin ms de 30 aos procedente de numerosas
bases alrededor de la Antrtica, los investigadores han concluido que los pinginos no slo estn desapareciendo sino que se
estn tambin muriendo de hambre.

Las excavaciones de Marden Henge revelan un edificio ceremonial (Reino Unido)
Arquelogos de English Heritage descubrieron una construccin ceremonial de 4500 aos de antigedad.
Este descubrimiento tuvo lugar durante unas excavaciones recientes, que duraron ms de seis semanas, en Marden Henge,
uno de los monumentos prehistricos ms importantes de Gran Bretaa, pero tambin el peor comprendido.
La estructura se descubri en el emplazamiento de un pequeo henge, desconocido hasta entonces, en los alrededores del
famoso Marden Henge; se trata de uno de los edificios neolticos mejor conservados de Gran Bretaa al margen de los
Orkneys.
En equilibrio precario en la cumbre de un talud, y con una apertura a la derecha sobre la pendiente hacia la zanja interna,
parece ser una eleccin poco probable para un hbitat. Sin embargo, pudo ser un emplazamiento privilegiado para ofrecer
una vista hacia el interior del henge, con el fin de observar las actividades en su centro.

Une spulture de l'poque byzantine a t dcouverte dans le village d'al-Ruba Zighreen, 30 km
au nord-est de Hama; il y avait un certain nombre de tombes l'intrieur desquelles on a pu
retrouver des poteries, du mtal, du verre et des pices d'or.
Abdul- Qader Farzat, Chef du Dpartement d'Archologie d'Hama, a prcis que le tombeau
possde une entre de 110 cm de long et 60 cm de large menant une petite pice entoure de
cinq chambres comprenant trois tombes chacune.
Les tombes ont une longueur de 175 cm, une profondeur de 40 cm et elles sont spares par
un espace de 25 cm.
Ce sont donc 15 tombes qui ont t dcouvertes dans la spulture.
Certaines des tombes contenaient plus d'un cercueil recouvert de panneaux de briques, tandis que d'autres taient
recouverts de pierres de basalte non tailles.

en defensa de su alma mater, Si arrasis mi escuela, una parte de m muere con ella.
Desafortunadamente, nos hemos enterado de que no habr una revisin ante el Consejo Municipal y una peticin de propuesta
se ha puesto en marcha para la demolicin. Aparentemente y puesto que se trata de una demolicin iniciativa de la ciudad
para destruir un edificio que pertenece a la misma ciudad, el Consejo Municipal no tiene por qu revisar la peticin de
demolicin. No obstante, seguimos insistiendo en hacer un llamamiento para conservar la Escuela Wheatley que se incluy en
la lista World Monuments Fund Watch en 2010.
Esperamos obtener ms de 2.000 firmas y presentar la peticin ante el alcalde Landrieu y el Consejo Municipal.

Los nativos americanos haban modificado el paisaje antes de la llegada de los europeos
Un nuevo estudio de investigadores, del Departamento de geologa de la Universidad Baylor, demuestra que la utilizacin de
la tierra por los Amerindios tuvo un impacto generalizado en el paisaje del Este Norteamericano; adems el desarrollo de las
llanuras inundables se hizo varios centenares de aos antes de la llegada de las grandes zonas de asentamiento europeos.
Los investigadores asignaron al principio de la colonizacin la utilizacin de las tierras, as como la deforestacin, la labranza y
la construccin de presas. Esto habra influido en los sistemas hidrolgicos actuales en el Este de Norteamrica.
Aunque estudios previos sugeran que la utilizacin de las tierras de los Amerindios en el Este de Norteamrica haba sido la
causa de cambios en los sistemas hidrolgicos, pocas pruebas directas se haban podido proporcionar hasta ahora

AD Classics: Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University / I.M. Pei 1973 - ITHACA - NEW YORK STATE - USA
With a desire to make a dramatic statement while maintaining an optimal amount of
scenic views, transparent open spaces and windows beautifully contrast the heaviness
and boldness of the rectangular forms of concrete.
Located atop a 1,000-foot slope that overlooks Lake Cayuga in Ithaca, the museum
was designed by I.M. Pei and John L. Sullivan, with additional help from the firm Pei
Cobb Freed & Partners. The museum totals 61,000 square feet, with nine floors
stacked high above the ground, housing the exhibit spaces. One floor rests underground, where additional galleries and
meeting rooms are found. Through stacking the program instead of spreading it out over the lot, the architects were able
to perserve much of the surrounding landscape and views.

Roman Roads not Roman after all? - Tarmac's Bayston Hill quarry. Shropshire (United Kingdom)
A discovery at Tarmac's Bayston Hill quarry in Shropshire has thrown into question the belief that Roman invaders
introduced roads to Britain.
Excavations carried out by environmental consultants SLR at the site suggest that the Romans may have made use of
existing roads engineered by Iron Age Britons.
The find shows that a metalled and cambered roadway, was constructed in the first century BC - a 100 years before the
Emperor Claudius sent troops to conquer Britain.

English Heritage Survey on Industrial Heritage at Risk
English Heritage is embarking on research which will reveal how much of our industrial heritage is at risk of neglect, decay
or even demolition. We will be revealing the results of this research at our annual Heritage at Risk launch in October.

unique industrial past can be saved for future generations to learn from, value and enjoy.
You can get involved now by posting photographs and comments on the Flickr Group we are running in conjunction with

COMPETITIONS - Expression of Interest (EOI): Historic Environment: Local Authority Capacity by English
Heritage. Deadline for nomination: 21 April 2011
Reductions to budgets mean that nearly everything local government does is being re-evaluated and historic environment
services, which are non statutory and have often evolved to meet the needs of the local community, are not exempt.
To respond to this key stakeholders have got together to support authorities as they make these difficult decisions, to
explore how to retain a focus on strategic heritage outcomes, reduce unnecessary bureaucracy and process and pool
resources across public bodies and engage civic societies more effectively. HELAC represents a partnership initiative with
English Heritage and the LGA being joined by the Association of Local Government Archaeological Officers, the Institute of
Historic Building Conservation and the Planning Officers Society. The first phase will see the partners working closely with a
number of nominated areas as they adapt services to meet new pressures. That process should see a variety of different
options for delivering a successful service emerge, each with an emphasis on partnership working, reducing unnecessary
process and working more effectively with other bodies...

Los humanos ms modernos procedan del sur de frica, sugiere un
estudio
Un estudio gentico de grupos nmadas africanos sugiere que los humanos ms
modernos evolucionaron desde el sur de frica, en lugar de proceder del este
como sugera un estudio previo, segn han informado cientficos este mes.
El equipo, dirigido por Brenna Henn de la Universidad de Stanford California, ha
llevado a cabo el estudio gentico de mayor envergadura sobre los cazadores
nmadas que vivan en frica hasta el momento. Tambin compararon el ADN con
muestras de otras poblaciones africanas y europeas.
Analizaron polimorfismos de nucleotidos simples (SNP), que constituyen pequeas variaciones de secuencia de ADN entre
grupos de gente. Los SNPs pueden ayudar a enfatizar las relaciones gentica,s la divergencia evolutiva e incluso
enfermedades.
Los resultados revelaron que los bosquimanos de Namibia y Khomani del sur de frica, los pigmeos Biaka de frica central y
los Sandawe del frica oriental, son los que presentan los niveles ms altos de diversidad gentica en el mundo, dice un
equipo.
La diversidad gentica es un indicador de la antigedad de los pueblos. En principio, cuando ms antigua la poblacin, ms
tiempo ha tenido para construir su diversidad.
Utilizando informacin gentica y localizaciones geogrficas de los grupos de cazadores nmadas, el equipo dedujo que el
origen de los humanos modernos, el Homo sapiens, se sita en el frica del Sur.

Seventy-Two Years After the Nazis Arrived, Restored Renaissance Synagogue to Reopen in ZAMOSC - Poland
One of the most important surviving synagogues in Poland, a Renaissance gem looted by the Nazis and suffering from
decades of neglect, is reopening this week after a meticulous restoration, part of an effort to reclaim the country's
decimated Jewish heritage.
The refurbishing of the synagogue in Zamosc, an eastern Polish town near the border with Ukraine, comes as Poland's tiny
remaining Jewish community is struggling to preserve some of the most important Jewish sites that survived the Holocaust
before they fall into irreversible decay.
But in a sign of how thorough Adolf Hitler's genocide was, there are almost no Jews left in the town. The cream-colored
house of prayer will now serve largely as a place for art exhibitions, concerts and other cultural events in the largely
Catholic area.

New Australian history and heritage website launched in Adelaide, South Australia (Australia)
Co-editors Brian Dickey and Susan Marsden have great pleasure in announcing a new Australian history website, recently
launched in Adelaide on the 30th anniversary of the formation of the Professional Historians Association (South Australia).
The SA 175/Celebrating South Australia website has been created by the Professional Historians Association (SA) [PHA
(SA)] to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the establishment of South Australia in 2011. It comprises many hundreds of
entries written by members of the PHA (SA) over more than 30 years. Many of these entries and images have never
appeared in public before, while others are reproduced because the original item is now out of print or not otherwise
digitised. Some entries are newly-written. All are focussed on the history and heritage of South Australia. They vary in
length from paragraph entries to substantial essays, chapters and reports, and they include On this day entries for every
day of the year.
This has been a great collaborative undertaking of two years in the making, and further articles and images will be

Malaysia Christians to Preserve Five Thousand Bibles 'Defaced' by Authorities as museum pieces
Five thousand Bibles that were defaced by authorities will be preserved as "museum pieces" at Malaysian churches, a
reminder of problems encountered by Christians in this Muslim-majority country, officials said Thursday.
The announcement is the latest twist in a dispute between Christians and the government over tens of thousands of
imported Bibles seized by Malaysian customs authorities, some since early 2009. The books violate a government ban on
non-Muslim texts that use the word "Allah" as a translation for God.
After Christian leaders voiced anger over the detention of the Bibles, the government agreed earlier this month to release
them, but stamped many with serial numbers and government seals that stated they were meant "for Christians only."

New hypotheses about the last stage and government of El Tajin civilization point out to a

According to studies performed at the Veracruz archaeological zone by Dr Arturo Pascual,

stage intense transformations in its government and ideology that were captured in its
architecture and iconography.
In this sense, near 800-850 AD, the ancient Mesoamerican city suffered a profound change in its government after the
accession of a new group of a lineage linked to the figure of 13 Rabbit, depicted at the Edificio de las Columnas pillars.
At the reliefs, characters with the same calendar name are represented at the western portico (dated between 800-850
AD) and at the eastern one (900-950 AD).

Hundreds of British Arts Organizations Feel the Sting of Government's Funding Cuts - United Kingdom
Hundreds of British arts organizations had their public funding slashed or eliminated Wednesday, the result of government
spending cuts aimed at tackling the country's deficit.
The Arts Council England must cut 15 percent from the amount it gives to art, music, theater, dance, literature and other
groups by 2015 which still leaves it with almost 1 billion pounds ($1.6 billion) to hand out.
The council said that instead of "salami slicing" cutting 15 percent from everyone it wanted to create a smaller but stronger
portfolio of groups. So some have been cut off entirely, while others have seen their funding increase.
"We have taken the brave path of strategic choices, not salami slices, which has meant some painful decisions," said
council chair Liz Forgan.

If authenticated, he says they would be the most significant find in Christian archaeology since the discovery of the Dead
Sea Scrolls in 1947.
He says there is strong evidence that the material was excavated in a northern cave by a Jordanian Bedouin five years
ago. But they made their way into the hands of an Israeli Bedouin.
He said Sunday that initial carbon and metallurgy tests performed by British experts date the material, depicting messianic
symbols and written in archaic Hebrew, to the 1st century A.D.

FELLOWSHIPS - Global Heritage Fund Preservation Fellowship Program - Supporting Preservation Projects in
the Developing World. Deadline for applications: 30 April 2011
The purpose of the Global Heritage Preservation Fellowship Program is to support cultural heritage conservation and
community development work with the potential for significant contributions to the long-term preservation of endangered
cultural heritage sites in developing countries by international and in-country scholars and students. We feel strongly that
by supporting this generation in their preservation efforts and education we can help to secure endangered sites for future
generations.
Global Heritage Fund (GHF) supports one-year projects in the disciplines of archaeological conservation, historic
preservation, heritage management, conservation science, site management planning, GIS and mapping, and sustainable
tourism and community development. GHF encourages interdisciplinary and collaborative projects, especially those that
combine disciplines in novel and potentially productive ways focused on best practices in preservation of endangered
cultural heritage sites in developing countries.
Other qualifications being equal, preference is given to candidates whose projects have the greatest likelihood of having
long-term conservation and community benefits for endangered global heritage sites in developing countries. Preference is
also given to projects at Inscribed or Tentative List World Heritage Sites, although in exceptional circumstances a site with
a demonstrated potential for World Heritage Site inscription will be considered.
Awards will be approximately $2,000, and grantees will receive half (50%) of the award prior to the field season and half
(50%) upon acceptance of the Final Report.

FELLOWSHIPS - American Council of Learned Societies(ACLS) Public Fellows - USA (various locations)
Deadline for application: 16 May 2011
ACLS invites applications for the inaugural competition of its Public Fellows program. The program will place eight recent
Ph.D.s in staff positions at partnering agencies in government and the non-profit sector for two years, beginning in some
cases as early as September 2011. Fellows will participate in the substantive work of these agencies and receive
professional mentoring. Compensation will be commensurate with experience and at the same level as new professional
employees of the hosting agency and will include health insurance.
This program, made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, aims to demonstrate that the capacities
developed in the advanced study of the humanities have wide application, both within and beyond the academy.
ACLS seeks applications from recent Ph.D.s who wish to begin careers in administration, management, and public service
by choice rather than circumstance. Competitive applicants will have been successful in both academic and extra-academic
experiences.

Online lecture: Ur of the Chaldees Lecture by Penn Museum.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (USA)
Dr. Richard L. Zettler, Co-curator of Iraqs Ancient Past gives a one-hour
lecture about Biblical Ur of the Chaldees, one of the largest and most
important Mesopotamian cities. Drawing on Sir Leonard Woolleys
excavations in the 1920s and 30s, he presents a colorful portrait of the
city that existed circa 2100-1600 BCE, a city with a towering ziggurat and
crowded residential areas. The city that Woolley so painstakingly
uncovered is not only the city he claimed Abraham walked, but also the model for our understanding of ancient
Mesopotamian urbanism today.

Historic Abbey of San Clemente a Casauria Damaged in 2009 Abruzzo Earthquake Reopens - Italy
Two years after a devastating earthquake hit the Abruzzo region of Italy, an important historic structure damaged in the
tremor has been returned to its community fully restored.
Following the earthquake, Bertrand du Vignaud, President of World Monuments Fund Europe, in coordination with the
Italian Ministry of Culture, identified the twelfth-century Abbey of San Clemente a Casauria as a priority project. World
Monuments Fund (WMF), the foremost independent, nonprofit historic preservation organization, and the Fondazione
Pescarabruzzo, the most important local benefactor, agreed to cover the total cost of the conservation program. WMF
supported this project through the Robert W. Wilson Challenge to Conserve Our Heritage and the Rudolf-August Oetker

Aomori Museum of Art / Jun Aoki & Associates - 2006 - Aomori - Japan
Aomori Museum of Art is situated next to an excavation site of the Sannai Maruyama ruins. These ruins are widely
respected as an important heritage of the Jomon period (10,000 300 BC), not only since the established theory, agriculture
had not yet been developed was abandoned because planned cultivation, such as chestnut, was revealed. But also because
the community already systematized their agricultural methods which could be seen by the hugeness of the colony scale.
Using this cultural heritage as the core element, Aomori Prefecture decided to forge a basis of art culture and determined
its beginning in building an art museum on the spot which directly adjoins the ruins.

Paradise Preserved: Updated list of cemeteries included in English Heritage's Register of Parks
and Gardens of Special Historic Interest (January 2011) and the register criteria
Since the publication of Paradise Preserved in 2007, English Heritage has reviewed the grades of the
registered cemeteries and also added several more cemeteries to the Register of Parks and Gardens of
Special Historic Interest in England. An updated list of registered cemeteries and the registration criteria is
provided in this leaflet.
The purpose of the Register is to celebrate designed landscapes of note and encourage appropriate
protection. It is hoped that, by drawing attention to cemeteries in this way, there will be greater
awareness of their value and that these very special places will be treated with care.

ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND HISTORIC BUILDINGS - English Heritage
Application of part L of the Building Regulations to historic and traditionally constructed buildings.
November 2010
The guidance has been produced to help prevent conflicts between energy efficiency requirements in Part L
of the Building Regulations and the conservation of historic and traditionally constructed buildings. Much of
the advice will also be relevant where thermal upgrading is planned without the specific need to comply
with these regulations.
This advice also acts as second tier supporting guidance in the interpretation of the Building Regulations
(referred to in paragraph 3.10 of the Approved Documents) that should be taken into account when determining
appropriate energy performance standards for works to historic buildings.
This guidance supersedes English Heritages previous publication Building Regulations and Historic Buildings an interim
guidance note on the application of part L which was prepared in support of the 2002 Regulations (revised in 2004).

Rivista online - Centro Universitario Europeo per i Beni Culturali di Ravello: Territori della
Cultura, n3, 2011
All'inizio degli anni ottanta l'Europa unita, malgrado ricorrenti solenni dichiarazioni, era soltanto il sogno
di pochi idealisti.
Gi da allora per, andava diffondendosi la convinzione della necessit di una formazione europeistica della
nuova classe dirigente: in particolare si riteneva che ai giovani dovessero proporsi le dimensioni e le
prospettive di un'Europa che non fosse solo un compendio di storie, magari gloriose ma particolari, e
neppure un insieme di Stati, ognuno autonomo ed emulo degli altri, ma una Patria comune.
A fondamento di essa si ergeva l'immenso patrimonio di cultura e di storia, prodotto insieme nei millenni. Appunto la
cultura comune sembrava poter dare un contenuto all'utopia.
L'Universit fu quindi giustamente individuata come strumento insostituibile di preparazione e di sostegno dell'Unione
Europea. L'Universit Europea era da pensare daccapo, e comunque da organizzare non ad imitazione di quelle nazionali e
meno ancora come sovrapposizione ad esse, ma piuttosto come complementare e come scuola di perfezionamento.
Il Centro Universitario Europeo per i Beni culturali nacque appunto come sperimentatore e pioniere di quella che dovrebbe
essere l'Universit europea per i beni culturali.

The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) - Assessment Report on Shuxiang Temple, Chengde,
rev. Sept. 2009
The assessment of Shuxiang Temple was undertaken by the Chengde Cultural Heritage Bureau, Hebei
Cultural Heritage Bureau, and the Getty Conservation Institute in 2003-04, resulting in a preliminary
report.
The report was reviewed and discussed at an Expert Committee meeting held in Chengde in November
2004. Based on the recommendations of the Expert Committee and the need for additional information,
the report was revised in 2005 and prepared for printing in early 2006.
In the collaboration with the site of Chengde, it was felt important to focus on conservation of traditional Chinese
architecture as a different cultural heritage category to wall painting conservation being undertaken at the Mogao Grottoes
of Dunhuang. The purpose of this diversity of heritage conservation work is to demonstrate the universal applicability of
the China Principles methodology, a new approach in the history of conservation and management of cultural sites in
China.

Le Corbusier, Homme de Lettres
Author: M. Christine Boyer
ISBN-13: 978-156-898-980-8
On his French identity card, legendary architect Le Corbusier listed his profession as "Homme de
Lettres" (Man of Letters). Celebrated for his architecture, which numbers fewer than sixty buildings, Le
Corbusier also wrote more than fifty books, hundreds of articles, and thousands of letters. Le Corbusier,
Homme de Lettres is the first in-depth study of Le Corbusier as a writer as well as an architect. Featuring
more than two hundred archival images from Le Corbusier's life and work, this groundbreaking book
examines his many writing projects from 1907 to 1947, as well as his letters written to two mentors: Charles L'Eplattenier
and William Ritter. In Le Corbusier, Homme de Lettres author M. Christine Boyer focuses on the development of his writing
style as it morphed from romantic prose to aphorisms and telegraphic bulletins. For each of his books, Le Corbusier was
meticulous about the design of the page layout, the form of the type, the impact of the ideas, and even the promotional
material. As a man of letters, Le Corbusier expected to contribute to the cultural atmosphere of the twentieth century. Le
Corbusier, Homme de Lettres shows for the first time how his voluminous output books, diaries, letters, sketchbooks,
travel notebooks, lecture transcriptions, exposition catalogs, journal articles reflects not just a compulsion to write, but a
passion for advancing his ideas about the relationship between architecture, urbanism, and society in a new machine age.

Transforming Landscapes Exposition / Reiulf Ramstad Architects - Oslo - Norway
(15 April 2011)
Reiulf Ramstad Architects will be hosting an exhibition that aims to explore the questions of
this century that deal with the tension between local and global conditions of the natural and
the artificial, between cyberspace and realspace, and between stillness and change. Their
ambition is to create a contemporary architecture-based analysis of the site, from which
emerges a sensitive interpretation of these conditions, paving the way for architectural design.
Based on the uniqueness of each context, RRA hopes to establish a carefully chosen set of
materials and spatial distribution characterized by each place and the intervention. Their projects are characterized by
forms and innovative tectonic stress of a spatial continuity between exterior and interior landscapes.

The Sacred Landscape of Ancient Ireland - Evidence from both excavations and
rare manuscripts reveal much about early Ireland's cosmology and its people's
deep connection to the land
Tara near the midpoint of the north-south line connecting Emain Macha and Dn Ailinne. The
significance of this arrangement is still unknown, but it is notable. Archaeological work
shows that early activity at these sites may have had to do with burials, and that these
enclosures were constructed during the Iron Age. Surprisingly, none of them are suitable for
defense. Instead, each seems to mark off an area that only makes sense if viewed as sacred

Presentazione "Memorieincammino.it" - Un progetto di memorie digitali - MUSEO CERVI - GATTATICO - Reggio
Emilia (Italia) 31 marzo 2011
prevista per gioved 31 marzo presso il Museo Cervi la presentazione di memorieincammino.it, progetto che vede
nuovamente impegnato l'Istituto Alcide Cervi nella tutela e nella divulgazione della memoria storica e della cultura
democratica e antifascista.
Il progetto, che vanta le collaborazioni con la BCC Cassa Padana, la Fondazione Dominato Leonense e il Consorzio
Cooperativo Finanziario per lo Sviluppo CCFS, intende realizzare una piattaforma digitale che rappresenti per la base
sociale dell'Istituto un canale privilegiato per esporre il proprio patrimonio memoriale e metterlo a disposizione di un pi
ampio pubblico: testimonianze, mediateche e gallerie iconografiche, documenti e collezioni di memorie organizzate sul web
in maniera tale da consentire agli utenti di navigare tra le risorse come se si camminasse in un museo tra i membri e le
esperienze di una comunit estesa.
La fase pilota del progetto prevede il coinvolgimento di circa 12 dei 150 soci complessivi dell'Istituto e, data la complessit
tecnica e la mole dei contenuti che memorieincammino.it si propone di sistematizzare, il rilascio online del portale previsto
per settembre/ottobre di quest'anno.
Il sito in costruzione, gli aggiornamenti, i contatti e il trailer-video del progetto sono gi disponibili su www.
memorieincammino.it, mentre gioved 31 marzo sar possibile vedere in anteprima la versione sperimentale del portale nel
corso della presentazione del progetto: un incontro dedicato a tutti i soci, e non solo, nel quale interverranno i principali
enti, da Rossella Cantoni (Presidente dell'Istituto A. Cervi), a Luigi Pettinati (Direttore BCC Cassa Padana), a Vittorio
Biemmi (Presidente Fondazione Dominato Leonense).
In conclusione, il video-messaggio di saluto di Moni Ovadia, testimonial d'eccezione del progetto. Per informazioni: Istituto

Malaysia Christians to Preserve Five Thousand Bibles 'Defaced' by Authorities as museum pieces
Five thousand Bibles that were defaced by authorities will be preserved as "museum pieces" at Malaysian churches, a
reminder of problems encountered by Christians in this Muslim-majority country, officials said Thursday.
The announcement is the latest twist in a dispute between Christians and the government over tens of thousands of
imported Bibles seized by Malaysian customs authorities, some since early 2009. The books violate a government ban on
non-Muslim texts that use the word "Allah" as a translation for God.
After Christian leaders voiced anger over the detention of the Bibles, the government agreed earlier this month to release
them, but stamped many with serial numbers and government seals that stated they were meant "for Christians only."

Audio of Dwight D. Eisenhower Speech Found - Metropolitan Museum. New York,
New York State (USA)
As commander of Allied forces in Europe during World War II, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower
explicitly ordered his troops to safeguard objects of cultural and historical importance
whenever possible even while fighting a war of devastating destructiveness. Now, historians
can hear the reasoning behind Eisenhower's order, in his own words, thanks to the recent
recovery of a recording of a speech he gave on April 2, 1946, at New York's Metropolitan
Museum of Art.
Digging through museum archives, Robert Edsel, founder of an arts preservation organization based in Dallas, discovered
the recording of Eisenhower's speech that the general delivered when he was honored with a life fellowship from the
museum.
Transcripts of the speech have long been available. But, "when you have Gen. Eisenhower saying it and when you hear his
words, it's electrifying," said Edsel, whose nonprofit, the Monuments Men Foundation, honors those who helped protect the
cultural treasures in Europe during World War II.

Recently Rediscovered Books Plundered by the Nazis Returned to Jewish
Community - Berlin, Germany
Recently rediscovered books plundered by the Nazis more than six decades ago were
returned to Berlin's Jewish community on Wednesday in a ceremony at the city's landmark
synagogue.
The Berlin Central and Regional Library formally handed over 10 books and three journal
volumes discovered among more than 200,000 volumes being examined by researchers as
part of a project to establish their origin, with a focus on restitution.
One of the books is from noted author Gotthold Ephraim Lessing and dates back to 1890. There is also a travel guide to
Palestine from 1934 and a book on Jewish history "from the destruction of the First Temple to the present," that was
published in 1913. All are in German.
Though experts say none of the books have significant monetary value, they offer a sobering glimpse of the country's
history.

First Batch of Korean Royal Books Looted by French Military 145 Years Ago Return
Home from Bibliothque nationale de France (BNF)
The first batch of Korean royal books looted by the French military 145 years ago returned
home Thursday.
French troops took away hundreds of Korean manuscripts and set fire to 5,000 more when
they raided a royal library in 1866 on an island off Korea's west coast. After about 20 years
of negotiations, France agreed last year to return the books on a "renewable lease" in line
with French law, South Korean officials say.
The books detail protocol for royal funerals, weddings and other ceremonies during the Joseon Dynasty, which ruled Korea
from 1392 to 1910.
The lease means the books' "virtual return" to South Korea as French law allows cultural assets taken out of the country
only temporarily, South Korea's Culture Ministry said in a statement.

The Man Who Broke into Auschwitz
Authors: Denis Avey and Rob Broomby
ISBN-13: 978-1444714166
This book is the extraordinary true story of a British soldier who marched willingly into BunaMonowitz, the concentration camp known as Auschwitz III.
In the summer of 1944, Denis Avey was being held in a POW labour camp, E715, near Auschwitz III.
He had heard of the brutality meted out to the prisoners there and he was determined to witness
what he could.
He hatched a plan to swap places with a Jewish inmate and smuggled himself into his sector of the camp. He spent the
night there on two occasions and experienced at first-hand the cruelty of a place where slave workers, had been sentenced
to death through labour.
Astonishingly, he survived to witness the aftermath of the Death March where thousands of prisoners were murdered by
the Nazis as the Soviet Army advanced. After his own long trek right across central Europe he was repatriated to Britain.
For decades he couldn't bring himself to revisit the past that haunted his dreams, but now Denis Avey feels able to tell the
full story - a tale as gripping as it is moving - which offers us a unique insight into the mind of an ordinary man whose
moral and physical courage are almost beyond belief.

Program of Excellence for Education and Research in South countries (PEERS)
The Programme of Excellence for Education and Research in South countries (PEERS) is one of the capacity building
programs implemented by the IRD - in his dual role as an operator for research and as an agency (Inter-Establishment
Agency for Research for Development - IARD).
As part of its mission of building individual and collective research, training and innovation in developing countries, IARD
supports the scientific communities of developing countries in their request for independence and international recognition,
and in the development of collaborative networks and synergies among North and South scientific communities. In this
context, the PEERS program - former program 'Chaires Croises- was launched by the IRD in 2007 to support the set up or
the strengthening of partnership projects between two high level professors (and / or researchers), one from the North,
one from the South in the field of research for development, training and / or innovation and dissemination. The PEERS
program particularly encourages the involvement of French and European research professors in research activities and
training in the developing countries.

Development in the Donau-Auen National Park? - Austria
One of the two free-flowing sections of the river in Austria is between Vienna and the
Austrian border with Slovakia. The largest connected floodplain forest on the upper Danube
is located here. Decisions made here in the planning of navigation projects could have a
"domino effect" on the entire Danube.
The project is located on the Danube section between the Freudeneu hydropower station
next to Vienna and the Austrian-Slovakian border, amounting to 48 km in length. It is within
the boundaries of the Donau-Auen National Park, which is also a biosphere reserve, a
designated Natura 2000 site, and a Ramsar site.

A blessing in disguise - Pakistan
In 1984, when I was a Divisional Forest Officer, I was kidnapped in the thick forest of Dadu, in
southern Pakistan. The armed gang kept me in captivity for two nights but it seemed like a
thousand years. My confidence was shattered and my career took a turn for what I thought at the
time was the worst. After this, I decided to work on coastal conservation. This change, which
involved restoring mangroves, was actually a blessing in disguise. It gave me a platform to chart
completely unexplored territory in Pakistan.
Tahir Qureshi is Programme Director of IUCN Pakistans Coastal Ecosystem Unit. He was the first
forest officer to be kidnapped by a notorious gang of dacoits belonging to the renowned Baloch Chandio Tribe. The 60strong gang, armed with the latest weapons, were operating in densely forested areas.

i-Tree Outils d'inventaire et de valorisation des forts urbaines - USFS (United States Forest Service)
Le US Forest Service - USFS - propose une suite logicielle gratuite aux responsables territoriaux pour valuer la valeur des
forts urbaines et des arbres. Quand vient le temps aux lus municipaux de dcider dinvestir, le poids des chiffres peut faire
pencher la balance favorablement du cot des arbres quand on peut dmontrer leur valeur.
En termes conomiques cela se traduit en valeur de la matire ligneuse videmment mais aussi en tonnes de CO2 absorbes,
en polluants neutraliss, en eau retenue, en rafrachissement atmosphrique, en impact olien, etc.
En fait, les forts urbaines peuvent tre considres comme faisant partie des infrastructures de la collectivit aussi bien que les
routes, les aqueducs ou les rseaux de transport d'nergie. Et comme toute infrastructure de valeur, il convient de la
connatre et de la grer positivement.

Los nativos americanos haban modificado el paisaje antes de la llegada de los europeos
Un nuevo estudio de investigadores, del Departamento de geologa de la Universidad Baylor, demuestra que la utilizacin de
la tierra por los Amerindios tuvo un impacto generalizado en el paisaje del Este Norteamericano; adems el desarrollo de las
llanuras inundables se hizo varios centenares de aos antes de la llegada de las grandes zonas de asentamiento europeos.
Los investigadores asignaron al principio de la colonizacin la utilizacin de las tierras, as como la deforestacin, la labranza y
la construccin de presas. Esto habra influido en los sistemas hidrolgicos actuales en el Este de Norteamrica.
Aunque estudios previos sugeran que la utilizacin de las tierras de los Amerindios en el Este de Norteamrica haba sido la
causa de cambios en los sistemas hidrolgicos, pocas pruebas directas se haban podido proporcionar hasta ahora

Bureau de recherches gologiques et minires - France) : le point sur le Sisme du 11 mars 2011 au Japon
Un sisme de magnitude 9.1 est survenu l'Est des ctes de l'le principale du Japon, vendredi 11 mars 2011, 14h46 heure
locale (6h46 heure franaise - 5h46 TU). Retrouvez sur cette page les points de situation dits par le BRGM.
Le sisme survenu le 11 mars est le plus fort jamais enregistr au Japon. Il a t prcd d'une squence de sismes dont le
principal a eu une magnitude de 7.2 (le 9 mars), et suivi par un tsunami.
Ces vnements se sont produits dans un contexte tectonique complexe et trs actif : une zone de subduction. Dans un tel
contexte, cause du plongement d'une plaque ocanique sous une autre plaque tectonique (ici portant l'le d'Honshu), un
certain nombre de failles peuvent induire des sismes. Les plus importants, tel que celui du 11 mars, se produisent au
niveau de la zone de contact entre les deux plaques.
L'USGS estime que le long de la faille rompue, la plaque Pacifique a plong localement de 17m sous l'le d'Honshu.

Une nouvelle zone de subduction pourrait natre en Mditerrane
Selon les gologues, la plaque tectonique europenne a commenc passer sous la plaque africaine. Un
phnomne qui pourrait conduire la naissance d'une nouvelle zone de subduction en Mditerrane.
Depuis des millions d'annes, le front nord de la plaque tectonique africaine descendait sous celle de
l'Europe. Mais le phnomne pourrait bien tre en train de s'inverser. C'est ce qu'ont annonc la semaine
dernire des gologues au meeting de l'European Geoscience Union (EGU). Alors que les continents
poursuivent leur convergence, il semblerait ainsi que ce soit cette fois-ci au tour de l'Europe de glisser
sous la plaque africaine. Un phnomne qui donnerait naissance un vnement gologique rare, la naissance
d'une nouvelle zone de subduction dans la rgion mditerranenne.

Surprising Discovery of Sharp-Toothed Fossil Links Old and New Dinosaurs - Smithsonian National Museum of
Natural History - Washington D.C. (USA)
The surprising discovery of a fossil of a sharp-toothed beast that lurked in what is now the western U.S. more than 200
million years ago is filling a gap in dinosaur evolution.
The short snout and slanting front teeth of the find Daemonosaurus chauliodus had never before been seen in a Triassic
era dinosaur, said Hans-Dieter Sues of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. Sues and colleagues report
the discovery in Wednesday's edition of the British journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
Sues, curator of vertebrate paleontology at the museum, said the discovery helps fill the evolutionary gap between the
dinosaurs that lived in what is now Argentina and Brazil about 230 million years ago and the later theropods like the
famous Tyrannosaurus rex.

Forer au plus profond la crote du Pacifique : une mission co-dirige par le CNRS au
printemps 2011
Une quipe internationale, laquelle participent quatre chercheurs franais notamment du CNRS et de
l'Universit Paul Sabatier Toulouse , met le cap vers le Pacifique Est pour mener, du 13 avril au 3 juin
prochain, au large du Costa-Rica, une campagne de forage ocanique. Objectif de cette expdition :
atteindre, pour la premire fois, proximit d'une dorsale expansion ultra-rapide, les niveaux de gabbros
situs une profondeur d'environ 2 km sous le plancher ocanique. Disposer d'chantillons de ces roches
magmatiques, issues d'un refroidissement plus lent que les basaltes des fonds ocaniques, permettra
aux scientifiques de mieux connatre la structure de la crote et d'en tester les modles de formation dans ce contexte
spcifique de dorsale rapide. Ces chantillons claireront aussi le rle de l'eau de mer dans l'volution de la crote ocanique ainsi
que la contribution de la partie infrieure de cette corce aux anomalies magntiques marines. Fait remarquable : le dpart de
cette mission concide avec le 50me anniversaire du premier forage de la crote ocanique en avril 1961.

Getty Museum to Return Looted Painting Previously Owned by Jacques Goudstikker
- Los Angeles - California - USA
The J. Paul Getty Museum has agreed to return a 370-year-old painting that once belonged
to an art dealer who fled Holland when the Nazis invaded in 1940.
Jacques Goudstikker was the Netherlands' biggest art dealer in the 1930s. He was fleeing
the Nazis with his wife and young son at the beginning of World War II when he fell through
a trap door on an outbound ship and died.
His collection was looted, with some works claimed by Adolf Hitler chief deputy Hermann
Goering.
Goudstikker's daughter-in-law, Marei von Saher, has spent years trying to track down the works. Her successes have been
on tour around the country in an exhibition that ends Tuesday in San Francisco and featured 45 recovered pieces from the
collection.
The Getty bought the 1640 Pieter Molijn painting titled "Landscape With Cottage and Figures" in good faith at a 1972
auction, the museum said. The museum did not disclose the purchase price and has never displayed the painting.

The Rise of Animal Law : A new area of study
By Greg Miller
Animal law is a relatively new area of study that examinesand often challengeshow the law treats animals. Some of those
who teach animal law courses describe themselves as activists; others shy away from that label. But many take issue with
a legal system that treats animals as property and provides few mechanisms for protecting their interests in court. Some of
these legal scholars have proposed strategies for advancing animal rights through steppingstone cases that erode the
notion of animals as property and grant them some of the same protections people have. Others, drawing inspiration from
the antislavery and civil rights movements, advocate a more direct effort to establish fundamental rights for animalsat
least for more cognitively sophisticated species such as great apes and cetaceans (see sidebar). No one is arguing that
orangutans should be given the right to vote, but some legal scholars see no reason why apes shouldn't have rights similar
to those of a child or a person in a coma. If these efforts succeed, there could be repercussions for everyone who works
with animalsincluding scientists.

Marc-Andr Renold, Professeur lUniversit de Genve, Avocat au Barreau de Genve
Les moyens alternatifs de rsolution de conflits en matire de biens culturels constituent une ressource importante pour
traiter des questions de restitution, de retour ou encore de rapatriement de biens culturels. Le prsent article a pour objectif
danalyser quelles sont les situations pouvant mener lutilisation de tels moyens plutt que des instruments judiciaires
classiques et dtudier les problmes qui peuvent se poser.
Ltude suit deux axes : le premier a pour objet lidentification des protagonistes ainsi que les techniques actuellement
mobilises dans la restitution ou le retour de biens culturels. Le second axe permet, dune part, de mettre en vidence la
nature des biens pouvant faire lobjet des types de rsolution de conflit dits alternatifs et, dautre part, de dresser une liste
des solutions, souvent originales, ayant dj t retenues en pratique.
Les modes alternatifs de rsolution de conflits permettent de prendre en considration nombre dlments extra-juridiques, de
nature parfois motionnelle ou relevant dun sentiment de lobligatoire qui accompagnent les parties sur le chemin du
consensus.

(en italiano) Genus Bononiae. Musei nella Citt. Bologne (Italia)
Spesso si parla della museificazione dei centri storici, della loro ipertrofizzazione in
reperto del passato che dato in pasto ai turisti, cartolina vivente per il consumo visivo.
E perch non sfruttare in modo creativo questa metafora? Perch non cogliere la
dimensione esplorativa del museo per rendere vivo e presente il patrimonio cittadino?
In questa prospettiva possiamo visitare Genus Bononiae. Musei nella Citt, ossia come
una strategia attraverso la quale il centro storico di Bologna, presente nella World
Heritage List dellUNESCO per i suoi quaranta chilometri di portici, si pensa e si racconta
come un museo della storia civica e architettonica.

Herzog de Meuron's Triangle Tower Design Raises Eyebrows in Paris - France
The 590ft (180m) proposed Herzog de Meuron design labeled Triangle Tower, has been in the
spotlight over recent weeks after the cross-party council approved the towers protocol agreement.
Opposing the recent approval, Green party members are eager to share their thoughts commenting
that the colossal project is yet another office block according to party member Yves Contassot.
The controversy over the 40-story steel and glass building surely was anticipated; the French capital
has had a 30+ year drought of buildings over 121ft. In 1977 a ban was put into place, shortly after
the completion of the 689ft Tour Montparnasse, because Parisians feared that the city center would
lose its existing urban fabric to skyscrapers similar to the Montparnasse.

Squares In Puigcerd / Pepe Gascn - 2008-2009 - Girona, Spain
Remodelling of the most central and relevant public space in Puigcerd, originally very much deteriorated,
with an excessive amount of traffic that diminished the civic and integrating potential of the space.
Traffic is eliminated, concentrating road and service communication on one side, freeing up a large central
space. Two large linear flowerbeds protect the pacified area from the bustle of traffic working as filters
between the two. A number of elements of street furniture simultaneously emphasise the physical and
visual limit of the squares themselves.

The Shard / Renzo Piano - London - United Kingdom
The 70-story mixed use tower even while under construction is the tallest building in Londons skyline. Adjacent to London
Bridge Station, the building offers increased density to a major public transport node, a key to and suggestive of future
London development. London based architectural photographer Andy Spain shared with us photographs he took a few
weeks ago of The Shard under construction. Be sure to take a look at our previous coverage of The Shard.

i-Tree Outils d'inventaire et de valorisation des forts urbaines - USFS (United States Forest Service)
Le US Forest Service - USFS - propose une suite logicielle gratuite aux responsables territoriaux pour valuer la valeur des
forts urbaines et des arbres. Quand vient le temps aux lus municipaux de dcider dinvestir, le poids des chiffres peut faire
pencher la balance favorablement du cot des arbres quand on peut dmontrer leur valeur.
En termes conomiques cela se traduit en valeur de la matire ligneuse videmment mais aussi en tonnes de CO2 absorbes,
en polluants neutraliss, en eau retenue, en rafrachissement atmosphrique, en impact olien, etc.
En fait, les forts urbaines peuvent tre considres comme faisant partie des infrastructures de la collectivit aussi bien que les
routes, les aqueducs ou les rseaux de transport d'nergie. Et comme toute infrastructure de valeur, il convient de la
connatre et de la grer positivement.

English Heritage Survey on Industrial Heritage at Risk
English Heritage is embarking on research which will reveal how much of our industrial heritage is at risk of neglect, decay
or even demolition. We will be revealing the results of this research at our annual Heritage at Risk launch in October.
We will also be finding out what the public think about industrial heritage and proposing ways in which the best of our
unique industrial past can be saved for future generations to learn from, value and enjoy.
You can get involved now by posting photographs and comments on the Flickr Group we are running in conjunction with
the Council for British Archaeology and the Association for Industrial Archaeology.

COMPETITIONS - Competition Entry for Galileum in Solingen / Ren van Zuuk
Architekten (Germany)
The Regional Industrial Heritage Organization of Solingen, Germany has called for a
competition to redevelop the local observation using an old spherical gas container in order to
address the strong industrial character and historical context of the container and the local
architecture. The following project is an entry from Ren van Zuuk Architekten. The site is
located on the edge of a residential area near a railroad, from which the steel spire of the old
gas container is visible. With a diameter of 26 metres the container has a frame of eleven
columns that rest on 3m high concrete foundations. The original design is pragmatic in its approach. A sphere was used as
the most efficient model with the largest surface area available to function at the lowest cost. The staircase was built with
the same functional consideration as the rest of the building and it follows that, to use the existing spherical structure, the
new design would have to be approached with the same rigor.

Astronomical Evidence for the Timing of the Panathenaia - Acropolis. Athens (Greece)
Article by Efrosyni Boutsikas
For the first time, the role of the night sky in the performance of nocturnal festivals in ancient Greece is considered. This
study presents a reconstruction of the Athenian night sky as it would have been visible from the Acropolis during the
celebration of the Panathenaia. A link is suggested between the timing of the festival, held on the Acropolis, and the
movement of the constellation of Draco, which would have been visible in the night sky during this time. This association is
supported by the half-human half-snake early Athenian kings, the myths associated with the festival, the snake that lived
in the Erechtheion crypt, and the role of Athena in the Giantomachy. The visible surroundings of the Athenian Acropolis
that participants of the nocturnal rites would have seen offer a more nuanced understanding of the relationship between
Greek cosmology, astronomy, and ritual practice.

parfois rotiques, ce genre est aujourdhui considr comme lun des trsors de la mmoire collective.

Savoirs des femmes: mdecine traditionnelle et nature; Maurice, Runion, Rodrigues
Author: Pourchez, Laurence
ISBN: 978-92-3-204197-5
La Runion, Maurice et Rodrigues prsentent des traditions mdicinales uniques. Fruits d'un processus de
crolisation dont les origines sont multiples, ces usages sont indissociables de la nature dans laquelle ils
puisent. Ils constituent une cl privilgie pour comprendre des socits qui se situent dans une dialectique
constante entre tradition et modernit.
Ces les, initialement dsertes, ont t peuples partir de la fin du XVIIe sicle par des populations originaires
d'Europe, de Madagascar, d'Afrique, d'Inde et de Chine, voire de Polynsie ou d'Australie. Le dialogue entre les savoirs
mdicinaux propres chacune d'elles a permis la naissance d'un savoir commun, transmis en grande partie par les femmes.
Cet ouvrage met en lumire la connaissance qu'ont ces femmes des plantes mdicinales et des gestes mdicaux, notamment
ceux qui accompagnent la naissance. Il interroge galement la place des savoirs mdicinaux dans ces socits insulaires lheure
dune occidentalisation croissante et de certains replis identitaires.

Valorisation du Patrimoine Culturel: Commercialisation Touristique de l'Artisanat d'art en
Turquie
Auteur : ter Zafer
ISBN : 9786131567148
Le tourisme mondial s'accrot malgr toutes les menaces politiques et conomiques. Tous les pays, pauvres ou
riches, sont comptitifs pour acqurir les touristes qu'ils prfrent. Aprs les annes du tourisme de masse, le
secteur du tourisme dcouvre les niches dans ses efforts de mercatique. La culture semble de plus en plus
favorable la prolifration des produits touristiques dans les destinations. Prservation, restauration,
dveloppement durable, tourisme plus responsable, commerce quitable sont des thmes d'importance au dbut du 21e sicle.
Ce livre essaie de questionner la situation de la valorisation du patrimoine culturel en Turquie. La valorisation du
patrimoine n'est plus limite la restauration des btiments historiques ou des uvres artistiques. Car, le patrimoine immatriel
ne cesse de gagner du terrain dans les rflexions et les actions. Cependant, la valorisation et la commercialisation des biens
culturels restent en mme temps un sujet contest. Les opinions des artisans d'art turcs et les commerants de l'artisanat
d'art en Turquie relient les thmes de valorisation et de commerce touristique dans cet tude.

Language May Have Helped Early Humans Spread Out of Africa
The story of humanity's prehistoric expansion across the planet is recorded in our genes. And,
apparently, the story of the spread of language is hidden in the sounds of our words. That's
the finding of a new study, which concludes that both people and languages spread out from an African homeland by a
similar processand that language may have been the cultural innovation that fueled our ancestors' momentous migrations

Archaeologists Investigate Iraqi Marshes for Origins of Mesopotamian Cities - Iraq
Three National Science Foundation-supported researchers recently undertook the first non-Iraqi archaeological
investigation of the Tigris-Euphrates delta in nearly 20 years. Archeologists Jennifer Pournelle and Carrie Hritz, with
geologist Jennifer Smith, carried out the study late last year to look for links between wetland resources and the
emergence of Mesopotamian cities.
"Mesopotamia"--Greek for "the land between the rivers"--is an area about 300 miles long and 150 miles wide straddling
the Tigris and Euphrates rivers, which now run through Iraq, northeastern Syria, southeastern Turkey and southwestern
Iran. It is broadly considered a cradle of civilization, because urban societies first developed there, about six thousand
years ago.

1st South Atlantic Biodiversity Meeting:Understanding deep-water biodiversity in the South Atlantic: options
for conservation and sustainable use of resources in the high-seas - Paris - France (7 -8 April 2011 )
The international expert meeting Understanding deep-water biodiversity in the South Atlantic: options for conservation and
sustainable use of resources in the high-seas will consolidate the main scientific findings collected during the South Atlantic
MAR-ECO field expedition, a collaborative effort involving scientists from Russia, Brazil, Uruguay and New Zealand. During
this 34-day expedition, a team of scientists acquired numerous pelagic and benthic samples over areas of the southern MidAtlantic Ridge and the Walvis Ridge. Scientific results emerging from preliminary analyses are already substantial and
expected to reveal significant results regarding deep water biodiversity of such poorly studied area.

Urgent action needed to protect Earth's blue carbon such as mangroves,
seagrasses and tidal marshes
The destruction of coastal carbon ecosystems, such as mangroves, seagrasses and tidal
marshes, is leading to rapid and long-lasting emissions of CO2 into the ocean and
atmosphere, according to 32 of the worlds leading marine scientists.
That key conclusion highlights a series of warnings and recommendations developed by the
new International Working Group on Coastal Blue Carbon, which convened its first meeting
in Paris last month. The Working Group was created as an initial step in advancing the
scientific, management and policy goals of the Blue Carbon Initiative, whose founding members include Conservation
International (CI), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic
Commission (IOC) of UNESCO.

A blessing in disguise - Pakistan
In 1984, when I was a Divisional Forest Officer, I was kidnapped in the thick forest of Dadu, in
southern Pakistan. The armed gang kept me in captivity for two nights but it seemed like a
thousand years. My confidence was shattered and my career took a turn for what I thought at the
time was the worst. After this, I decided to work on coastal conservation. This change, which
involved restoring mangroves, was actually a blessing in disguise. It gave me a platform to chart
completely unexplored territory in Pakistan.
Tahir Qureshi is Programme Director of IUCN Pakistans Coastal Ecosystem Unit. He was the first
forest officer to be kidnapped by a notorious gang of dacoits belonging to the renowned Baloch Chandio Tribe. The 60strong gang, armed with the latest weapons, were operating in densely forested areas.

Degraded coastal wetlands contribute to climate change
Drainage and degradation of coastal wetlands emit significant amounts of carbon dioxide
directly to the atmosphere and lead to decreased carbon sequestration, a new report has found.
The report, written in partnership with the World Bank, International Union for Conservation of
Nature (IUCN) and wetland specialists ESA PWA, calls for coastal wetlands to be protected and
incentives for avoiding their degradation and improving their restoration to be included into
carbon emission reduction strategies and in climate negotiations.

Hoy en da los ocanos estn amenazados por el creciente nivel de contaminacin, por la poblacin y el desarrollo costero en
tierra firme. El cambio climtico global tambin est contribuyendo a una subida del nivel del mar, al calentamiento y a la
acidificacin. La biodiversidad marina est bajando, mientras que estn aumentando los casos de ciclones y las oleadas de
tormentas. Dada la profunda influencia de los ocanos en las vidas de los hombres, es esencial que entendamos y seamos
capaces de predecir las condiciones globales y regionales de los ocanos y la interaccin con la atmsfera, la biosfera y la
tierra. Este conocimiento tiene que surgir de la investigacin marina cientfica, de observaciones y servicios.

Nazi Warplane, Thought to Be World's Last Known Example, Lying Off United Kingdom Coast is Intact
A World War Two era German Dornier 17 bomber is seen using high-tech sonar equipment, showing it to be largely intact
and well-preserved on the sea floor, in an undated photo off the Kent coast. A rare World War II German bomber shot
down over the English Channel, hidden for years by shifting sands at the bottom of the sea, is so well preserved a British
museum wants to raise it for its collection. The Dornier 17 warplane -- thought to be world's last known example -- was hit
on 26 August 1940 as it took part on a massive attack that became known as the Battle of Britain

Wartime German Bunker Discovered by Workers in Warsaw Laying a New Tram
Line - WARSAW - POLAND
Workers in Warsaw laying a new tram line have uncovered a German bunker dating back to
World War II, officials said Thursday.
The bunker was discovered in recent days at Plac Zbawiciela, or Savior's Square, a major
traffic hub in the Polish capital where tram tracks and the street are undergoing thorough
renovation.
City archaeologist Barbara Piotrowska said it was a surprise that such a massive concrete
and metal structure had remained hidden from view for many decades in the city center. She said it will require specialized
equipment and the shutting down of the tram power line for the bunker to be moved. It will then go to a museum.

Peticin para salvar la Escuela de Primaria Phillis Wheatley NUEVA ORLEANS- EEUU
En nombre de DOCOMOMO US/ Luisiana les solicito que consideren firmar una peticin en lnea para salvar la histrica
moderna Escuela Elemental Philips Wheatley la cual amenaza ser demolida. Esta peticin fue iniciada por Phyllis MontanaLeblanc,, PML quin habl de forma apasionada en una vista pblica el viernes ante la Historic District Landmarks Commission
en defensa de su alma mater, Si arrasis mi escuela, una parte de m muere con ella.
Desafortunadamente, nos hemos enterado de que no habr una revisin ante el Consejo Municipal y una peticin de propuesta
se ha puesto en marcha para la demolicin. Aparentemente y puesto que se trata de una demolicin iniciativa de la ciudad
para destruir un edificio que pertenece a la misma ciudad, el Consejo Municipal no tiene por qu revisar la peticin de
demolicin. No obstante, seguimos insistiendo en hacer un llamamiento para conservar la Escuela Wheatley que se incluy en
la lista World Monuments Fund Watch en 2010.
Esperamos obtener ms de 2.000 firmas y presentar la peticin ante el alcalde Landrieu y el Consejo Municipal.

AD Classics: Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University / I.M. Pei 1973 - ITHACA - NEW YORK STATE - USA
With a desire to make a dramatic statement while maintaining an optimal amount of
scenic views, transparent open spaces and windows beautifully contrast the heaviness
and boldness of the rectangular forms of concrete.
Located atop a 1,000-foot slope that overlooks Lake Cayuga in Ithaca, the museum
was designed by I.M. Pei and John L. Sullivan, with additional help from the firm Pei
Cobb Freed & Partners. The museum totals 61,000 square feet, with nine floors
stacked high above the ground, housing the exhibit spaces. One floor rests underground, where additional galleries and
meeting rooms are found. Through stacking the program instead of spreading it out over the lot, the architects were able
to perserve much of the surrounding landscape and views.

La casa Turkel de Frank Lloyd Wright es obtiene una segunda vida - 1955 - Detroit - Michigan - EE.UU.
Cuando Dale Morgan y Norman Silk vieron un cartel de "Se Vende" en frente de una casa contempornea en la zona de
Palmer Woods de Detroit era justo lo que buscaban, as que lo compraron.. Poco saban que haba tropezado solo en la
compra de un verdadero ejemplo de Frank Lloyd Wright diseador de la casa, conocida como la Casa Turkel.
Para responder a la pregunta que todos han hecho, Cmo no lo han sabido , resulta que 25 aos de deterioro, los largos
perodos de abandono y el cambio de manos propietarios combinado con aos de mantenimiento diferido y cubierto de
vegetacin puede ocultar un diseo FLW bastante bien.

Slovenia
DOCOMOMO is an acronym for DOcumentation and COnservation of the MOdern MOvement. Docomomo International is an
international not-for-profit organisation that documents and preserves architecture of the Modern Movement. It strives to
raise awareness regarding Modernist architecture by running an international register, organising campaigns, conferences,
exhibitions, education and publicity. It brings together experts from diverse professions: architects, art historians,
conservationists, sociologists, urban planners, landscape architects and others involved in preservation. The organisation is
composed of four specialised groups: Register, Technology, Urbanism and Landscape Architecture, and Education and
Theory. It was founded by architects Hubert-Jan Henket and Wessel de Jonge from the Department of Architecture at the
Eindhoven University of Technology in 1990. The Netherlands is also home to the present assembly centre of the Modernist
architecture register in NAi. The two architects ran the organisation until 2002, when its seat was transferred to Paris, and
the management taken over by Italian architect and professor Maristella Casciato. In 2010, the seat was once again
moved, this time to Barcelona, where the organisation is now run by Portuguese architect and professor Ana Tstoes.
Docomomo is under the patronage of the Mies van der Rohe Foundation. Today, it consists of over 50 satellite units across

Video: Architecture Tour of Frank Lloyd Wright's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum - New York - New York
State - USA
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum was the last major project designed and built by Frank Lloyd Wright between 1943
until it opened to the public in 1959, six months after his death, making it one of his longest works in creation along with
one of his most popular projects. Completely contrasting the strict Manhattan city grid, the organic curves of the museum

AD Round Up: Classics Part III - A selection
AD Classics: MIT Baker House Dormitory / Alvar Aalto
Alvar Aalto designed the Baker House in 1946 while he was a professor at the Massachussets Institute of Technology,
where the dormitory is located. It received its name in 1950, after the MITs Dean of Students Everett Moore Baker was
killed in an airplane crash that year. The dormitory is a curving snake slithering on its site and reflects many of Aaltos
ideas of formal strategy, making it a dormitory that is both inhabited and studied by students from all over the world (read

Herzog de Meuron's Triangle Tower Design Raises Eyebrows in Paris - France
The 590ft (180m) proposed Herzog de Meuron design labeled Triangle Tower, has been in the
spotlight over recent weeks after the cross-party council approved the towers protocol agreement.
Opposing the recent approval, Green party members are eager to share their thoughts commenting
that the colossal project is yet another office block according to party member Yves Contassot.
The controversy over the 40-story steel and glass building surely was anticipated; the French capital
has had a 30+ year drought of buildings over 121ft. In 1977 a ban was put into place, shortly after
the completion of the 689ft Tour Montparnasse, because Parisians feared that the city center would
lose its existing urban fabric to skyscrapers similar to the Montparnasse.

Germany Relaxes Restrictions on Reichstag Visits - BERLIN - GERMANY
Germany's parliament says restrictions on visits to the cupola of its Reichstag building long a
Berlin tourist magnet will be relaxed later this month, but sightseers will have to register in
advance.
The Reichstag's glass cupola, British architect Norman Foster's popular 1990s addition to the
historic building, was closed to visitors last November after the Interior Ministry warned of
an increased terrorism threat in Germany and raised security levels.
It was subsequently reopened only to people on full tours of the parliament building or with
reservations at its rooftop restaurant.
Parliament's lower house said Wednesday that, starting April 21, visitors who only want to visit the cupola will be admitted
again. They will have to register at least two working days in advance.

Aomori Museum of Art / Jun Aoki & Associates - 2006 - Aomori - Japan
Aomori Museum of Art is situated next to an excavation site of the Sannai Maruyama ruins. These ruins are widely
respected as an important heritage of the Jomon period (10,000 300 BC), not only since the established theory, agriculture
had not yet been developed was abandoned because planned cultivation, such as chestnut, was revealed. But also because
the community already systematized their agricultural methods which could be seen by the hugeness of the colony scale.
Using this cultural heritage as the core element, Aomori Prefecture decided to forge a basis of art culture and determined
its beginning in building an art museum on the spot which directly adjoins the ruins.

Architecture City Guide: Minneapolis - Minnesota - USA
This week our Architecture City Guide is headed to the city stars fall on. With a few
notable exceptions, one can hardly be called a starchitect if s/he hasnt designed
something in Minneapolis. Since 2005 the starchitects that have fallen on this City of
Lakes include Jean Nouvel, Herzog & de Mueron, Csar Pelli, Michael Graves, Steven Holl,
and Frank Gehry. This is a surprising number for a city just north of 380,000 people.
Few cities of this size could boast as much. Whats more our list of 12 is far from
complete. There are many wonderful historic and contemporary buildings mixed in with
the explosion of starchitecture. Please leave comments of buildings one should not miss when visiting Minneapolis.

Le Corbusier, Homme de Lettres
Author: M. Christine Boyer
ISBN-13: 978-156-898-980-8
On his French identity card, legendary architect Le Corbusier listed his profession as "Homme de
Lettres" (Man of Letters). Celebrated for his architecture, which numbers fewer than sixty buildings, Le
Corbusier also wrote more than fifty books, hundreds of articles, and thousands of letters. Le Corbusier,
Homme de Lettres is the first in-depth study of Le Corbusier as a writer as well as an architect. Featuring
more than two hundred archival images from Le Corbusier's life and work, this groundbreaking book
examines his many writing projects from 1907 to 1947, as well as his letters written to two mentors: Charles L'Eplattenier
and William Ritter. In Le Corbusier, Homme de Lettres author M. Christine Boyer focuses on the development of his writing
style as it morphed from romantic prose to aphorisms and telegraphic bulletins. For each of his books, Le Corbusier was
meticulous about the design of the page layout, the form of the type, the impact of the ideas, and even the promotional
material. As a man of letters, Le Corbusier expected to contribute to the cultural atmosphere of the twentieth century. Le
Corbusier, Homme de Lettres shows for the first time how his voluminous output books, diaries, letters, sketchbooks,
travel notebooks, lecture transcriptions, exposition catalogs, journal articles reflects not just a compulsion to write, but a
passion for advancing his ideas about the relationship between architecture, urbanism, and society in a new machine age.

A Teaching resource kit for mountain countries: a creative approach to environmental education
Une approche crative de lducation lenvironnement
Collection L'homme et la biosphre
2010, 978-92-3-204159-3
This environmental education kit is intended primarily for secondary (and late primary) school teachers
and their pupils living in countries in mountain areas, where climate and environmental conditions are
harsh, often varying between extremes, and which are subject to the problems of erosion.
With a view to fostering a better understanding of mountain ecosystems, the kit offers a creative approach
to environmental education and is designed to arouse pupils' curiosity, to appeal to their artistic sensibilities and to serve
as a tool for a more effective transmission of scientific information and environmental knowledge.

Presentazione "Memorieincammino.it" - Un progetto di memorie digitali - MUSEO CERVI - GATTATICO - Reggio
Emilia (Italia) 31 marzo 2011
prevista per gioved 31 marzo presso il Museo Cervi la presentazione di memorieincammino.it, progetto che vede
nuovamente impegnato l'Istituto Alcide Cervi nella tutela e nella divulgazione della memoria storica e della cultura
democratica e antifascista.
Il progetto, che vanta le collaborazioni con la BCC Cassa Padana, la Fondazione Dominato Leonense e il Consorzio
Cooperativo Finanziario per lo Sviluppo CCFS, intende realizzare una piattaforma digitale che rappresenti per la base
sociale dell'Istituto un canale privilegiato per esporre il proprio patrimonio memoriale e metterlo a disposizione di un pi
ampio pubblico: testimonianze, mediateche e gallerie iconografiche, documenti e collezioni di memorie organizzate sul web
in maniera tale da consentire agli utenti di navigare tra le risorse come se si camminasse in un museo tra i membri e le
esperienze di una comunit estesa.
La fase pilota del progetto prevede il coinvolgimento di circa 12 dei 150 soci complessivi dell'Istituto e, data la complessit
tecnica e la mole dei contenuti che memorieincammino.it si propone di sistematizzare, il rilascio online del portale previsto
per settembre/ottobre di quest'anno.
Il sito in costruzione, gli aggiornamenti, i contatti e il trailer-video del progetto sono gi disponibili su www.
memorieincammino.it, mentre gioved 31 marzo sar possibile vedere in anteprima la versione sperimentale del portale nel
corso della presentazione del progetto: un incontro dedicato a tutti i soci, e non solo, nel quale interverranno i principali
enti, da Rossella Cantoni (Presidente dell'Istituto A. Cervi), a Luigi Pettinati (Direttore BCC Cassa Padana), a Vittorio
Biemmi (Presidente Fondazione Dominato Leonense).
In conclusione, il video-messaggio di saluto di Moni Ovadia, testimonial d'eccezione del progetto. Per informazioni: Istituto

AD Classics: Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, Cornell University / I.M. Pei 1973 - ITHACA - NEW YORK STATE - USA
With a desire to make a dramatic statement while maintaining an optimal amount of
scenic views, transparent open spaces and windows beautifully contrast the heaviness
and boldness of the rectangular forms of concrete.
Located atop a 1,000-foot slope that overlooks Lake Cayuga in Ithaca, the museum
was designed by I.M. Pei and John L. Sullivan, with additional help from the firm Pei
Cobb Freed & Partners. The museum totals 61,000 square feet, with nine floors
stacked high above the ground, housing the exhibit spaces. One floor rests underground, where additional galleries and
meeting rooms are found. Through stacking the program instead of spreading it out over the lot, the architects were able
to perserve much of the surrounding landscape and views.

ICCROM is saddened to hear of the recent passing of Dr Donny George Youkhanna, Iraqi archaeologist and
teacher, and former Director of the Iraq National Museum.
Dr George was educated at the University of Baghdad, receiving his BA, MA, and PhD in prehistoric
archaeology. In 1976, he joined the staff of the Iraq National Museum and became Director from 2003 to
2005. He was instrumental in saving the museum after the fall of Saddam Hussein in 2003, leading efforts
in the recovery of stolen cultural objects that were looted. During this time, he kept in regular contact with
UNESCO, which was organizing emergency efforts in the aftermath of the looting. As Director, he led
projects to repair damage to the museum and created an Assyrian hall thanks to aid obtained from Italy. Additionally, he
helped establish a conservation training programme.

(en italiano) Genus Bononiae. Musei nella Citt. Bologne (Italia)
Spesso si parla della museificazione dei centri storici, della loro ipertrofizzazione in
reperto del passato che dato in pasto ai turisti, cartolina vivente per il consumo visivo.
E perch non sfruttare in modo creativo questa metafora? Perch non cogliere la
dimensione esplorativa del museo per rendere vivo e presente il patrimonio cittadino?
In questa prospettiva possiamo visitare Genus Bononiae. Musei nella Citt, ossia come
una strategia attraverso la quale il centro storico di Bologna, presente nella World
Heritage List dellUNESCO per i suoi quaranta chilometri di portici, si pensa e si racconta
come un museo della storia civica e architettonica.

Alte Pinakothek Celebrates 175th Anniversary with a Series of Blockbuster Exhibitions - Munich - Germany 17 March 2011 - 15 January 2012
In 2011 the Bayerische Staatsgemldesammlungen is marking the Alte Pinakotheks 175th anniversary with a wide range of
events. Opened to the public on 16 October, 1836, Leo von Klenzes seminal museum building today still provides the
architectural framework for collections of paintings assembled in Munich around 1800 by various branches of the
Wittelsbach dynasty, together with King Ludwig Is later acquisitions.
A series of exhibitions during the jubilee year focuses on the history of the museum and its collection which is among the
most important in the world. To launch this series, from mid March the Bayerische Staatsgemldesammlungen welcomed a
hugely important guest, Johannes Vermeers Woman Holding a Balance. This masterpiece, now held in the National Gallery
of Art in Washington, once formed part of the exquisite private collection amassed by the first king of Bavaria, Max I
Joseph, who awaits rediscovery as a collector of Dutch paintings from the Golden Age. At the same time, the exhibition
Treasures from the Depot is being held in the North Cabinet Rooms where paintings that are seldom or have never been
displayed before can be seen throughout the whole anniversary year

Hundreds of British Arts Organizations Feel the Sting of Government's Funding Cuts - United Kingdom
Hundreds of British arts organizations had their public funding slashed or eliminated Wednesday, the result of government
spending cuts aimed at tackling the country's deficit.
The Arts Council England must cut 15 percent from the amount it gives to art, music, theater, dance, literature and other
groups by 2015 which still leaves it with almost 1 billion pounds ($1.6 billion) to hand out.
The council said that instead of "salami slicing" cutting 15 percent from everyone it wanted to create a smaller but stronger
portfolio of groups. So some have been cut off entirely, while others have seen their funding increase.
"We have taken the brave path of strategic choices, not salami slices, which has meant some painful decisions," said
council chair Liz Forgan.

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Returns Tapestry Room to Its Original Glory and Configuration - Boston Massachussetts - USA
For the first time since it opened in 1914, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum's 4,000-square-foot Tapestry Room is
being restored to its original glory and will once again take its place as one of the nation's great tapestry halls. The
restoration of this beloved space will return the Tapestry Room to its original configuration for the first time since a
temporary stage, chairs, and other modern elements were added to accommodate formal concerts in the early 1970s.
Historically, the Tapestry Room has been both a gallery and home to many of the museum's programs, including the
popular Sunday Concert Series. Now, as part of the Gardner Museum's Extension and Preservation Project, the museum's
world-class concerts will be relocated to an intimate new performance hall in the Renzo Piano-designed addition, and the
Gardner will be able to restore the space to its historic appearance, enabling visitors to see and enjoy the Tapestry Room
for the first time in nearly 40 years. No event programming is scheduled for 2011 in the Tapestry Room; programming will
resume in 2012 in the new wing and the gallery will remain open until then so that visitors can view the conservation and
preservation work taking place. The reinstalled Tapestry Room will be highlighted as part of the museum's Grand Opening
for its new wing in January 2012.

Getty Museum to Return Looted Painting Previously Owned by Jacques Goudstikker
- Los Angeles - California - USA
The J. Paul Getty Museum has agreed to return a 370-year-old painting that once belonged
to an art dealer who fled Holland when the Nazis invaded in 1940.
Jacques Goudstikker was the Netherlands' biggest art dealer in the 1930s. He was fleeing
the Nazis with his wife and young son at the beginning of World War II when he fell through
a trap door on an outbound ship and died.
His collection was looted, with some works claimed by Adolf Hitler chief deputy Hermann
Goering.
Goudstikker's daughter-in-law, Marei von Saher, has spent years trying to track down the works. Her successes have been
on tour around the country in an exhibition that ends Tuesday in San Francisco and featured 45 recovered pieces from the
collection.
The Getty bought the 1640 Pieter Molijn painting titled "Landscape With Cottage and Figures" in good faith at a 1972
auction, the museum said. The museum did not disclose the purchase price and has never displayed the painting.

Malaysia Christians to Preserve Five Thousand Bibles 'Defaced' by Authorities as museum pieces
Five thousand Bibles that were defaced by authorities will be preserved as "museum pieces" at Malaysian churches, a
reminder of problems encountered by Christians in this Muslim-majority country, officials said Thursday.
The announcement is the latest twist in a dispute between Christians and the government over tens of thousands of
imported Bibles seized by Malaysian customs authorities, some since early 2009. The books violate a government ban on
non-Muslim texts that use the word "Allah" as a translation for God.
After Christian leaders voiced anger over the detention of the Bibles, the government agreed earlier this month to release
them, but stamped many with serial numbers and government seals that stated they were meant "for Christians only."

Online lecture: Ur of the Chaldees Lecture by Penn Museum.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (USA)
Dr. Richard L. Zettler, Co-curator of Iraqs Ancient Past gives a one-hour
lecture about Biblical Ur of the Chaldees, one of the largest and most
important Mesopotamian cities. Drawing on Sir Leonard Woolleys
excavations in the 1920s and 30s, he presents a colorful portrait of the
city that existed circa 2100-1600 BCE, a city with a towering ziggurat and
crowded residential areas. The city that Woolley so painstakingly

Audio of Dwight D. Eisenhower Speech Found - Metropolitan Museum. New York,
New York State (USA)
As commander of Allied forces in Europe during World War II, Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower
explicitly ordered his troops to safeguard objects of cultural and historical importance
whenever possible even while fighting a war of devastating destructiveness. Now, historians
can hear the reasoning behind Eisenhower's order, in his own words, thanks to the recent
recovery of a recording of a speech he gave on April 2, 1946, at New York's Metropolitan
Museum of Art.
Digging through museum archives, Robert Edsel, founder of an arts preservation organization based in Dallas, discovered
the recording of Eisenhower's speech that the general delivered when he was honored with a life fellowship from the
museum.
Transcripts of the speech have long been available. But, "when you have Gen. Eisenhower saying it and when you hear his
words, it's electrifying," said Edsel, whose nonprofit, the Monuments Men Foundation, honors those who helped protect the
cultural treasures in Europe during World War II.

Aomori Museum of Art / Jun Aoki & Associates - 2006 - Aomori - Japan
Aomori Museum of Art is situated next to an excavation site of the Sannai Maruyama ruins. These ruins are widely
respected as an important heritage of the Jomon period (10,000 300 BC), not only since the established theory, agriculture
had not yet been developed was abandoned because planned cultivation, such as chestnut, was revealed. But also because
the community already systematized their agricultural methods which could be seen by the hugeness of the colony scale.
Using this cultural heritage as the core element, Aomori Prefecture decided to forge a basis of art culture and determined
its beginning in building an art museum on the spot which directly adjoins the ruins.

Surprising Discovery of Sharp-Toothed Fossil Links Old and New Dinosaurs - Smithsonian National Museum of
Natural History - Washington D.C. (USA)
The surprising discovery of a fossil of a sharp-toothed beast that lurked in what is now the western U.S. more than 200
million years ago is filling a gap in dinosaur evolution.
The short snout and slanting front teeth of the find Daemonosaurus chauliodus had never before been seen in a Triassic
era dinosaur, said Hans-Dieter Sues of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. Sues and colleagues report
the discovery in Wednesday's edition of the British journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B.
Sues, curator of vertebrate paleontology at the museum, said the discovery helps fill the evolutionary gap between the
dinosaurs that lived in what is now Argentina and Brazil about 230 million years ago and the later theropods like the
famous Tyrannosaurus rex.

Sands, Not Lights, Cover Gaza Archaeology Sites - Palestine
Five thousand years of fascinating history lie beneath the sands of the Gaza Strip, from blinded biblical hero Samson to
British general Allenby.
The flat, sandy lands on the Mediterranean's southeastern shore have been ruled by Ancient Egyptians, Philistines,
Romans, Byzantines and Crusaders.
Alexander the Great besieged the city. Emperor Hadrian visited. Mongols raided Gaza, and 1,400 years ago Islamic armies
invaded. Gaza has been part of the Ottoman Empire, a camp for Napoleon and a First World War battleground.

First Batch of Korean Royal Books Looted by French Military 145 Years Ago Return
Home from Bibliothque nationale de France (BNF)
The first batch of Korean royal books looted by the French military 145 years ago returned
home Thursday.
French troops took away hundreds of Korean manuscripts and set fire to 5,000 more when
they raided a royal library in 1866 on an island off Korea's west coast. After about 20 years
of negotiations, France agreed last year to return the books on a "renewable lease" in line
with French law, South Korean officials say.
The books detail protocol for royal funerals, weddings and other ceremonies during the Joseon Dynasty, which ruled Korea
from 1392 to 1910.
The lease means the books' "virtual return" to South Korea as French law allows cultural assets taken out of the country
only temporarily, South Korea's Culture Ministry said in a statement.

Semiotica dei nuovi musei
Pare che nel mondo aprano al pubblico almeno 100 nuovi musei ogni anno. Con questo enunciato Isabella
Pezzini, professoressa di Scienze Semiotiche alla Sapienza di Roma, apre il suo libro dedicato alla semiotica
dei musei, al loro significato intrinseco contestualizzato nella societ moderna.
Lungi dallessere mero contenitore di opere darte, il museo oggi dialoga con gli artisti, con lo spazio che lo
accoglie e con la citt, divenendo spesso simbolo incontrastato del territorio in maniera pi potente rispetto
alle collezioni in esso contenute.

Reintroduccin progresiva del castor en el Pas de Gales - Reino Unido
Reino Unido - Una asociacin ecologista del Pas de Gales soltar este verano, en semilibertad, una pareja
de castores. El seguimiento cientfico de estos dos pioneros podra desembocar en una reintroduccin a
mayor escala en medio enteramente natural.
La ONG Wales Wild Land Foundation va a crear en Artist' s Valley, cerca de Machynlleth, en el Pas de
Gales, un hbitat cerrado destinado a acoger a una pareja de castores europeos - un macho y una
hembra -, incluyendo un observatorio para los visitantes. Se llevarn a cabo tambin una vigilancia e
investigaciones con el fin de evaluar si el roedor puede ser introducido en varios lugares cerrados, o en
la naturaleza.

PROYECTO TIGRE: PASADO, PRESENTE Y FUTURO
El proyecto Tigre, puesto en marcha en 1973-74, es uno de los proyectos de
conservacin de mayor xito en tiempos recientes. El proyecto tiene como objetivo
la conservacin del tigre en particular en reservas para tigres, que sean
representativas de varias regiones bio-geogrficas dentro del territorio de nuestro
pas. Se esfuerza por mantener una poblacin de tigres viables en el entorno
natural.
El proyecto se inici en 1973, y varias reservas de tigres se crearon en el pas
parte de una estrategia de proteccin del centro. Las reas centrales fueron liberadas de todo tipo de actividad humana y las
reas de proteccin se sometieron o dedicaron a un uso orientado a la conservacin del terreno. Se disearon planes de gestin
para cada reserva de tigres, basados en los principios que desarrollamos abajo:
1. La eliminacin de toda forma de explotacin humana y de perturbacin bitica del rea central y la racionalizacin de las
actividades en la zona de proteccin.
2. Restriccin de la gestin del hbitat slo para reparar los daos que se hagan al ecosistema debido a la accin humana o a
otras interferencias, para facilitar la recuperacin del eco-sistema a su estado natural.
3. Monitorizacin de los cambios en la flora y fauna a lo largo del tiempo llevando a cabo investigacin sobre la vida salvaje.

Las Negras Waterfront / Jess Torres Garca - Nijar - Spain
The landscape of this Almeria area has been used as scenery for forty years: from the birth of a genre such as the
Spaghetti Western with Sergio Leone taking the lead with The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and A Fistful of Dollars, to
modest productions such as How I won the war by Richard Lester. The fact that such an abundance of artists agrees in the
choice of this enclave as a backdrop for their creations gives us an idea of its scenic quality. The isolation and the lack of
development of this region have also helped.

Urgent action needed to protect Earth's blue carbon such as mangroves,
seagrasses and tidal marshes
The destruction of coastal carbon ecosystems, such as mangroves, seagrasses and tidal
marshes, is leading to rapid and long-lasting emissions of CO2 into the ocean and
atmosphere, according to 32 of the worlds leading marine scientists.
That key conclusion highlights a series of warnings and recommendations developed by the
new International Working Group on Coastal Blue Carbon, which convened its first meeting
in Paris last month. The Working Group was created as an initial step in advancing the
scientific, management and policy goals of the Blue Carbon Initiative, whose founding members include Conservation
International (CI), the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic
Commission (IOC) of UNESCO.

Invasive species experts call for action in the basin of one of African Great Lakes,
Lake Tanganyika
Threats posed by invasive species and ways to monitor and control them will be discussed at a
meeting in the Republic of Burundi tomorrow, with special focus on invasive species that are
spreading in the basin of one of African Great Lakes, Lake Tanganyika.
Invasive species are species introduced to a new area where they spread causing significant
damage to biodiversity and the productivity of natural and agricultural ecosystems. In the
1990s for example, the invasion of water hyacinth and Nile perch in Lake Victoria caused
hundreds of fish species to disappear or become extinct and some of the ecosystem to collapse.

Indian Survey Finds More Tigers, but Some Wonder
A new survey by the Indian government reports a 12% increase in the country's adult tiger
population. But some tiger experts think the numbers don't really add up.
A 2006 survey estimated that the country was home to 1165 to 1657 tigers. The latest
survey counts 1571 to 1875 tigers, almost 60% of the world's wild population, including 70
tigers that were found in the mangroves of the Ganges Delta of the Sundarbans, an area not
covered during the last survey, and another 30 from two other areasthe Orang Wildlife
Sanctuary in eastern India and the Sahyadari protected area in western Indiathat were left
out earlier. However, tigers are now squeezed into 22% less space than 5 years ago, to some 72,000 square kilometers
today.

The Rise of Animal Law : A new area of study
By Greg Miller
Animal law is a relatively new area of study that examinesand often challengeshow the law treats animals. Some of those
who teach animal law courses describe themselves as activists; others shy away from that label. But many take issue with
a legal system that treats animals as property and provides few mechanisms for protecting their interests in court. Some of
these legal scholars have proposed strategies for advancing animal rights through steppingstone cases that erode the
notion of animals as property and grant them some of the same protections people have. Others, drawing inspiration from
the antislavery and civil rights movements, advocate a more direct effort to establish fundamental rights for animalsat
least for more cognitively sophisticated species such as great apes and cetaceans (see sidebar). No one is arguing that
orangutans should be given the right to vote, but some legal scholars see no reason why apes shouldn't have rights similar
to those of a child or a person in a coma. If these efforts succeed, there could be repercussions for everyone who works
with animalsincluding scientists.

Un mecanismo de respuesta pronta tras la recuperacin posterior al tsunami en las
Galpagos- Ecuador
El terremoto devastador que azot la costa de Japn el 11 de marzo dio lugar a un poderoso
tsunami que arras la costa y que tio de tragedia a miles de personas. No se vieron afectados
sitos Patrimono Mundial en Japn y el tsunami se extendi rpidamente a lo largo del Pacfico
durante ese mismo da. La gente de las Galpagos (a 13.000 kilmetros de Japn), las cuales
haban sido avisadas con antelacin, se dirigieron a suelo firme cuando una serie de altas olas,

la ciudad de Puerto Avora, las mareas subieron hasta 1,7 metros por encima de sus niveles normales e inundaron las
zonas costeras, causando un dao considerable a los edificios situados cerca de la orilla, y en aquellos ms al interior.

Development in the Donau-Auen National Park? - Austria
One of the two free-flowing sections of the river in Austria is between Vienna and the
Austrian border with Slovakia. The largest connected floodplain forest on the upper Danube
is located here. Decisions made here in the planning of navigation projects could have a
"domino effect" on the entire Danube.
The project is located on the Danube section between the Freudeneu hydropower station
next to Vienna and the Austrian-Slovakian border, amounting to 48 km in length. It is within
the boundaries of the Donau-Auen National Park, which is also a biosphere reserve, a
designated Natura 2000 site, and a Ramsar site.

10th anniversary of the establishment of the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park - Scotland (United
Kingdom)
2011 marks the 10th anniversary of the establishment of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park - Scotland's first
national park. Over the years many people have worked to create national parks for Scotland but there is one man who
can be credited with actually making it happen: John McFall. John was the Member of Parliament in Dunbartonshire and
some years before the General Election of 1997, he started promoting the need for a a national park there. He managed to
pursuade his senior colleagues to act regarding national parks if they won the election. They did - and within 6 months the
scottish national parks act was passed in 2000. Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park was created the following
year.

Hungary runs out of cash to tackle pollution disaster, WWF (WORLD WILDLIFE
FUND) claims
Despite holding the current presidency of the European Union, Hungary has been accused
of failing to act on the mud pollution disaster that swept a toxic tide of chemical waste
along hundreds of miles of countryside.
Six months after being deluged by the deathly red sludge, towns downstream of the failed
alumina tailings dam near Ajka remain ruined and largely deserted, with residents and
former residents still waiting for authorities to deliver on much of the promised assistance.
Elsewhere in Eastern Europe, residents of other towns threatened by tailings dams are noting that little has been done to
reduce the risks hanging over their communities.

A blessing in disguise - Pakistan
In 1984, when I was a Divisional Forest Officer, I was kidnapped in the thick forest of Dadu, in
southern Pakistan. The armed gang kept me in captivity for two nights but it seemed like a
thousand years. My confidence was shattered and my career took a turn for what I thought at the
time was the worst. After this, I decided to work on coastal conservation. This change, which
involved restoring mangroves, was actually a blessing in disguise. It gave me a platform to chart
completely unexplored territory in Pakistan.
Tahir Qureshi is Programme Director of IUCN Pakistans Coastal Ecosystem Unit. He was the first
forest officer to be kidnapped by a notorious gang of dacoits belonging to the renowned Baloch Chandio Tribe. The 60strong gang, armed with the latest weapons, were operating in densely forested areas.

Rumbles in the jungle - Naresh Subedi - Nepal
Office? The jungle. Colleagues? Elephants, rhinos and tigers. Naresh Subedi has many
stories to tell. Stories that are not only fascinating and impressive but that can also make
your hair stand on end.
Naresh Subedi works to save Nepals wildlife. He studies and monitors animals such as rhinos
and tigers, and actively involves local communities in conservation.
Naresh is currently involved in carrying out a rhino census in the Chitwan National Park,
which has the second largest population of greater one-horned rhino in the world. He
recently fitted radio collars on eight rhinos living in the park and now conducts regular patrols to monitor their movements.
This often means spending the whole night in the park, which is also home to tigers, elephants and gharials.

The man who saves turtles - Malaysia
Nick saves sea turtles. In a nutshell thats what he does. But he has to look far beyond their nesting
grounds to make it work.
Nick has a PhD in turtle biology, but he says it did not prepare him for the real-world challenges of
turtle conservation.
After an early career in Saudi Arabia, Malaysia and Palau as a marine biologist, Nick settled down in
north Borneo and established his own non- governmental organization, the Marine Research
Foundation (MRF), a non-profit entity geared to saving marine life across various countries and facing
differing threats. MRF, an IUCN Member, now serves as a base from which Nick addresses turtle conservation at various
levels, and with an ever-growing diversity of people.

International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) helps businesses value nature
Today, IUCN and the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) released a
Guide to Corporate Ecosystem Valuation (CEV) a new message to enhance business
understanding of the benefits and value of ecosystem services like fresh water, food, fibre and
protection against natural disasters.
The economic value of nature and the services it provides us is enormous, but it is rarely taken
into account in policies, financial systems and markets. The Guide to Corporate Ecosystem
Valuation (CEV) aims to enable companies to better understand the value of natures services
that they affect and depend on. This will improve business decision-making by creating more alignment between
businesses financial, ecological and social objectives.

Degraded coastal wetlands contribute to climate change
Drainage and degradation of coastal wetlands emit significant amounts of carbon dioxide
directly to the atmosphere and lead to decreased carbon sequestration, a new report has found.
The report, written in partnership with the World Bank, International Union for Conservation of
Nature (IUCN) and wetland specialists ESA PWA, calls for coastal wetlands to be protected and
incentives for avoiding their degradation and improving their restoration to be included into
carbon emission reduction strategies and in climate negotiations.

en rocas de silicato lquido y fluidos salados calientes, tal y como afirman los investigadores en el siguiente nmero de

Yellowstone, sugiere el nuevo informe. En la ltima dcada ms o menos, otros equipos de geocientficos, incluyendo uno con
uno de los cientficos que han elaborado el informe, haban avistado la nube de humo mediante el empleo de ondas ssmicas.
La imagen electromagntica de la columna de humo es mayor que la que obtena de la informacin ssmica pero no se
extiende de forma tan profunda, en parte debido a que las ondas electromagnticas que el estudio analiz slo pueden
penetrar alrededor de 300 kilmetros del centro de la tierra.

Luciano Andriamaro: Health and Fresh Water: Ingredients for Success in Madagascar
The crystal-clear waters of Madagascar's Nosivolo River hold more than beauty: they hold life. The river's waters support
19 endemic fish species, four of which are found in the Nosivolo and nowhere else.
So when, in September 2010, the river and its watershed was named a Ramsar site, it marked a milestone for CI and local
communities in a joint mission to create protected areas that ensure the long-term health of the river for the fish and for
the human population living nearby.
And Luciano Andriamaro, Science Support Program Manager for CI-Madagascar, understands well how important a healthy
river ecosystem is for ensuring benefits for both local communities and wildlife.

Report: Clean Water, Better Health in Madagascar
When Conservation International (CI) and partners first arrived in the village of Miarinarivo in eastern Madagascar in 2002,
the community did not have an adequate supply of potable water. Local taboos discouraged people from using communal
latrines; instead they used the nearby river as a toilet and as a source of drinking water. Waterborne diseases such as
diarrhea were prevalent, especially among young children.
After several years of health education outreach and the implementation of community projects such as latrine
construction in the village, the "Healthy Families, Healthy Forests" project was completed in 2008. Last month, staff from
CI-Madagascar returned to Miarinarivo to find out if the information and services we'd provided had stuck with community
members or been discarded in favor of long-standing traditions.

JUSTIN WARD: HELPING COMPANIES WORK FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
A growing environmental movement was spreading across America in the 1970s. As it gained
traction in the small, vibrant college town of Ft. Collins, Colo. home to Colorado State
University it helped influence a generation of budding conservationists, including Justin Ward,
Vice President of Business Practices in CI's Center for Environmental Leadership in Business
(CELB).
Justin recalls the era as "a dynamic time for environmental policy, with landmark debates on
wilderness preservation, clean air, clean water, energy and other key issues." This early
influence, Justin says, "reinforced my interest in public affairs and the environment and probably influenced my career

Marine mammal distribution, abundance and population biologyand ecology will be investigated using
airplane and ves sel based surveys and by studying samples from animals bycaught in fishing gear. The
hypothesis that marine mammal distribution and abundance in the region is conducive to eco-tourism will
be tested. The sustainability of the dolphin tourism will be investigated by testing the hypothesis that the
tourism practices adversely impact dolphin populations. Information from behavioural research of dolphins in relation to
tourism will be used to address this

Online Study - Animals Find Sanctuary With Scientists
In an 85-square-kilometer swath of rainforest in Cte d'Ivoire's Ta National Park, monkeys call to one another, chimps drum
on tree trunks, and tiny antelopes rustle through the underbrush. That's where researchers have been studying primate
communities for more than 3 decades. Step outside the research zone, though, and the animal sounds fall silent. The
forest is noticeably emptier as a result of heavy poaching. Field researchers all over the world have noticed that long-term
research sites double as sanctuaries, but they've never had the numbers to prove it. Now they do

La casa Turkel de Frank Lloyd Wright es obtiene una segunda vida - 1955 - Detroit - Michigan - EE.UU.
Cuando Dale Morgan y Norman Silk vieron un cartel de "Se Vende" en frente de una casa contempornea en la zona de

Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Returns Tapestry Room to Its Original Glory and Configuration - Boston Massachussetts - USA
For the first time since it opened in 1914, the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum's 4,000-square-foot Tapestry Room is
being restored to its original glory and will once again take its place as one of the nation's great tapestry halls. The
restoration of this beloved space will return the Tapestry Room to its original configuration for the first time since a
temporary stage, chairs, and other modern elements were added to accommodate formal concerts in the early 1970s.
Historically, the Tapestry Room has been both a gallery and home to many of the museum's programs, including the
popular Sunday Concert Series. Now, as part of the Gardner Museum's Extension and Preservation Project, the museum's
world-class concerts will be relocated to an intimate new performance hall in the Renzo Piano-designed addition, and the
Gardner will be able to restore the space to its historic appearance, enabling visitors to see and enjoy the Tapestry Room
for the first time in nearly 40 years. No event programming is scheduled for 2011 in the Tapestry Room; programming will
resume in 2012 in the new wing and the gallery will remain open until then so that visitors can view the conservation and
preservation work taking place. The reinstalled Tapestry Room will be highlighted as part of the museum's Grand Opening
for its new wing in January 2012.

house next door to the North. We were only allowed 1 metre squared of obscured window on the Southern elevation, no
windows above the top of the wall on the Western elevation and 1 metre squared of window on the Northern elevation. We
had to set the building back from the road, decreasing the usable space on the site even further.

County Cork Painter's Studio / LOCAL - 2006 - Country Cork - Ireland
A repeat client from New York approached LOCAL to turn an old stone barn on his wifes family farm compound in Ireland
into a painters studio and vacation cottage. Because she is a landscape painter, she wanted a view and lots of light. At the
same time, they wanted to retain the rustic character of the old stone barn. LOCAL decided to keep the faade facing the
other buildings on the compound virtually untouched, and instead break out the entire faade facing the best view of the
hills beyond the farm. Two skylights, invisible from the street, bring in light into the rear part of the house.

Rivista online - Centro Universitario Europeo per i Beni Culturali di Ravello:
Territori della Cultura, n3, 2011
All'inizio degli anni ottanta l'Europa unita, malgrado ricorrenti solenni dichiarazioni, era
soltanto il sogno di pochi idealisti.
Gi da allora per, andava diffondendosi la convinzione della necessit di una formazione
europeistica della nuova classe dirigente: in particolare si riteneva che ai giovani
dovessero proporsi le dimensioni e le prospettive di un'Europa che non fosse solo un
compendio di storie, magari gloriose ma particolari, e neppure un insieme di Stati,
ognuno autonomo ed emulo degli altri, ma una Patria comune.
A fondamento di essa si ergeva l'immenso patrimonio di cultura e di storia, prodotto insieme nei millenni. Appunto la
cultura comune sembrava poter dare un contenuto all'utopia.
L'Universit fu quindi giustamente individuata come strumento insostituibile di preparazione e di sostegno dell'Unione
Europea. L'Universit Europea era da pensare daccapo, e comunque da organizzare non ad imitazione di quelle nazionali e
meno ancora come sovrapposizione ad esse, ma piuttosto come complementare e come scuola di perfezionamento.
Il Centro Universitario Europeo per i Beni culturali nacque appunto come sperimentatore e pioniere di quella che dovrebbe
essere l'Universit europea per i beni culturali.

Author: Edited by Miguel Angel Corzo and Nieves Valentn
ISBN: 978-0-89236-492-3
Year: 1998
In this Spanish-language volume, twenty international authorities in stained-glass conservation and related
fields address the history, aesthetics, and conservation of stained glass. The book presents the results of
an international seminar on the conservation of stained glass, held in Spain in July 1994. Among the
subjects discussed are the weathering of medieval stained glass, its chemical structure, the effects of
corrosion, and techniques used for analysis of this historic material.
Miguel Angel Corzo is the former director of the Getty Conservation Institute. Nieves Valentn is researcher at the Instituto
del Patrimonio Histrico Espaol in Madrid.

The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) - Assessment Report on Shuxiang Temple, Chengde,
rev. Sept. 2009
The assessment of Shuxiang Temple was undertaken by the Chengde Cultural Heritage Bureau, Hebei
Cultural Heritage Bureau, and the Getty Conservation Institute in 2003-04, resulting in a preliminary
report.
The report was reviewed and discussed at an Expert Committee meeting held in Chengde in November
2004. Based on the recommendations of the Expert Committee and the need for additional information,
the report was revised in 2005 and prepared for printing in early 2006.
In the collaboration with the site of Chengde, it was felt important to focus on conservation of traditional Chinese
architecture as a different cultural heritage category to wall painting conservation being undertaken at the Mogao Grottoes
of Dunhuang. The purpose of this diversity of heritage conservation work is to demonstrate the universal applicability of
the China Principles methodology, a new approach in the history of conservation and management of cultural sites in
China.

Time Honored, A Global View of Architectural Conservation; Parameters, Theory & Evolution of
an Ethos
By John H. Stubbs
ISBN: 978-0-470-26049-4
February 2009
Imagine the world without the Parthenon, Notre Dame, the Wailing Wall, the Taj Mahal, the Forbidden
City, Machu Picchu, or other iconic buildings, monuments, and places. What if the more impressive historic
buildings and sites we encounter in our everyday lives disappeared? Civilization would simply not exist as
we know it.
Fortunately, awareness of the importance of protecting the worlds cultural patrimonyin particular, its architectural
heritageis at an all-time high and is growing. Time Honored, A Global View of Architectural Conservation explores the
reasons for this phenomenon, explains how international architectural heritage conservation practice operates, and
considers where this firmly rooted global interest may lead

Germany Relaxes Restrictions on Reichstag Visits - BERLIN - GERMANY
Germany's parliament says restrictions on visits to the cupola of its Reichstag building long a
Berlin tourist magnet will be relaxed later this month, but sightseers will have to register in
advance.
The Reichstag's glass cupola, British architect Norman Foster's popular 1990s addition to the
historic building, was closed to visitors last November after the Interior Ministry warned of
an increased terrorism threat in Germany and raised security levels.
It was subsequently reopened only to people on full tours of the parliament building or with
reservations at its rooftop restaurant.
Parliament's lower house said Wednesday that, starting April 21, visitors who only want to visit the cupola will be admitted
again. They will have to register at least two working days in advance.

Simposio Imaginario Turstico (Berkeley, California, EE.UU., 18-20 febrero 2011)

INTERDISCIPLINARY GROUP OF TOURISM STUDIES (EIREST), INSTITUTE OF ADVANCED STUDIES AND RESEARCH ON
TOURISM(IREST), University of Paris 1 Pantheon-Sorbonne
Imaginaries of place, destination, and travel are increasingly produced/consumed by diverse populations around the globe
through expanding forms of media and opportunities for travel. A range of players collaboratively produces spatial
imaginaries (the potential power of place as a tourist destination) in touristic systems.
The tourist imaginary, as a nexus of social practices through which individuals and groups intersect to establish a place as
a credible destination, has yet to be fully explored or defined. When they are negative, they f oster avoidance of the
places. They intervene not on at the moment of choice, but also on the spot, deciding for or against certain practices. We
have organized this conference with the goal of a deepening of knowledge of and advancing research methods and
scholarship, towards a more complete understanding of the tourist imaginary.

Le tourisme mondial s'accrot malgr toutes les menaces politiques et conomiques. Tous les pays, pauvres ou

secteur du tourisme dcouvre les niches dans ses efforts de mercatique. La culture semble de plus en plus

dveloppement durable, tourisme plus responsable, commerce quitable sont des thmes d'importance au dbut du 21e sicle.
Ce livre essaie de questionner la situation de la valorisation du patrimoine culturel en Turquie. La valorisation du
patrimoine n'est plus limite la restauration des btiments historiques ou des uvres artistiques. Car, le patrimoine immatriel
ne cesse de gagner du terrain dans les rflexions et les actions. Cependant, la valorisation et la commercialisation des biens
culturels restent en mme temps un sujet contest. Les opinions des artisans d'art turcs et les commerants de l'artisanat
d'art en Turquie relient les thmes de valorisation et de commerce touristique dans cet tude.

Nazi Warplane, Thought to Be World's Last Known Example, Lying Off United Kingdom Coast is Intact
A World War Two era German Dornier 17 bomber is seen using high-tech sonar equipment, showing it to be largely intact
and well-preserved on the sea floor, in an undated photo off the Kent coast. A rare World War II German bomber shot
down over the English Channel, hidden for years by shifting sands at the bottom of the sea, is so well preserved a British
museum wants to raise it for its collection. The Dornier 17 warplane -- thought to be world's last known example -- was hit
on 26 August 1940 as it took part on a massive attack that became known as the Battle of Britain

Diving Ice Age Mexico - Clues about the earliest Americans emerge from the Yucatn's watery
underworld
Clues about the earliest Americans emerge from the Yucatns watery underworld
Beneath the surface of Mexicos Yucatn peninsula is a massive network of caves that forms a world unto
itself. Until 7,600 years ago, the caves were mostly dry, providing shelter and naturally occurring pools of
drinkable water to people and animals living in a region with few rivers. As the glaciers in North America
melted and sea levels rose, so did the water levels in the caves, preserving the traces of human activity in
place. These water-filled spaces, called cenotes, are largely unexplored, but a dedicated group of
archaeologists and divers are working together to investigate them

County Cork Painter's Studio / LOCAL - 2006 - Country Cork - Ireland
A repeat client from New York approached LOCAL to turn an old stone barn on his wifes family farm compound in Ireland
into a painters studio and vacation cottage. Because she is a landscape painter, she wanted a view and lots of light. At the
same time, they wanted to retain the rustic character of the old stone barn. LOCAL decided to keep the faade facing the
other buildings on the compound virtually untouched, and instead break out the entire faade facing the best view of the
hills beyond the farm. Two skylights, invisible from the street, bring in light into the rear part of the house.

(en italiano) Genus Bononiae. Musei nella Citt. Bologne (Italia)
Spesso si parla della museificazione dei centri storici, della loro ipertrofizzazione in
reperto del passato che dato in pasto ai turisti, cartolina vivente per il consumo visivo.
E perch non sfruttare in modo creativo questa metafora? Perch non cogliere la
dimensione esplorativa del museo per rendere vivo e presente il patrimonio cittadino?
In questa prospettiva possiamo visitare Genus Bononiae. Musei nella Citt, ossia come
una strategia attraverso la quale il centro storico di Bologna, presente nella World
Heritage List dellUNESCO per i suoi quaranta chilometri di portici, si pensa e si racconta
come un museo della storia civica e architettonica.

Seventy-Two Years After the Nazis Arrived, Restored Renaissance Synagogue to Reopen in ZAMOSC - Poland
One of the most important surviving synagogues in Poland, a Renaissance gem looted by the Nazis and suffering from
decades of neglect, is reopening this week after a meticulous restoration, part of an effort to reclaim the country's
decimated Jewish heritage.
The refurbishing of the synagogue in Zamosc, an eastern Polish town near the border with Ukraine, comes as Poland's tiny
remaining Jewish community is struggling to preserve some of the most important Jewish sites that survived the Holocaust
before they fall into irreversible decay.
But in a sign of how thorough Adolf Hitler's genocide was, there are almost no Jews left in the town. The cream-colored
house of prayer will now serve largely as a place for art exhibitions, concerts and other cultural events in the largely
Catholic area.

Instituto Getty de Conservacin (GCI)- La Conservacin del Mosaico de la Transiguracin
en el Monasterio de Santa Catalina en Sinai (Egipto) 14 de abril 2011
El Monasterio Santo de Santa Catalina es el monasterio ms antiguo de la Cristiandad que sigue
en funcionamiento. Mandado construir por el emperador bizantino Justiniano en el siglo sexto,
contiene obras de arte y documentos histricos de una belleza increble y de gran importancia,
incluyendo iconos, pinturas en las paredes, y mosaicos. Uno de los ms famosos es el mosaico
de la Transfiguracin, una joya de la poca bizantina temprana, situado en el bside de encima del
altar mayor en la baslica del monasterio.
A lo largo de los siglos, la Transfiguracin ha sufrido graves daos causados por terremotos y por las numerosas visitas de

ScienceShot: Yellowstone consigue un escner CT (tomografa computarizada) Parque Nacional Yellowstone
EEUU
El parque nacional Yellowstone es de hecho un lugar electrizante. Los investigadores han utilizado observaciones del campo
electromagntico de la Tierra recogidas en ms de 100 lugares que rodean el parque para crear una imagen parecida a un CT
escner de la columna de humo de roca caliente responsable de los geiseres y aguas calientes (imagen principal) de hoy en
da as como de la actividad volcnica pasada en la regin. Variaciones en la conductividad de la roca que subyace en la reginque conduce la electricidad en algunos lugares al igual que lo hace bajo el mar (rojo oscuro, insercin)- revela zonas ricas
en rocas de silicato lquido y fluidos salados calientes, tal y como afirman los investigadores en el siguiente nmero de
Geophysical Research Letters. La columna de humo podra extenderse ms de 600 kilmetros al este de la cuenca del
Yellowstone, sugiere el nuevo informe. En la ltima dcada ms o menos, otros equipos de geocientficos, incluyendo uno con
uno de los cientficos que han elaborado el informe, haban avistado la nube de humo mediante el empleo de ondas ssmicas.
La imagen electromagntica de la columna de humo es mayor que la que obtena de la informacin ssmica pero no se
extiende de forma tan profunda, en parte debido a que las ondas electromagnticas que el estudio analiz slo pueden
penetrar alrededor de 300 kilmetros del centro de la tierra.

The Man Who Broke into Auschwitz
Authors: Denis Avey and Rob Broomby
ISBN-13: 978-1444714166
This book is the extraordinary true story of a British soldier who marched willingly into BunaMonowitz, the concentration camp known as Auschwitz III.
In the summer of 1944, Denis Avey was being held in a POW labour camp, E715, near Auschwitz III.
He had heard of the brutality meted out to the prisoners there and he was determined to witness
what he could.
He hatched a plan to swap places with a Jewish inmate and smuggled himself into his sector of the camp. He spent the
night there on two occasions and experienced at first-hand the cruelty of a place where slave workers, had been sentenced
to death through labour.
Astonishingly, he survived to witness the aftermath of the Death March where thousands of prisoners were murdered by
the Nazis as the Soviet Army advanced. After his own long trek right across central Europe he was repatriated to Britain.
For decades he couldn't bring himself to revisit the past that haunted his dreams, but now Denis Avey feels able to tell the
full story - a tale as gripping as it is moving - which offers us a unique insight into the mind of an ordinary man whose
moral and physical courage are almost beyond belief.

Astronomical Evidence for the Timing of the Panathenaia - Acropolis. Athens (Greece)
Article by Efrosyni Boutsikas
For the first time, the role of the night sky in the performance of nocturnal festivals in ancient Greece is considered. This
study presents a reconstruction of the Athenian night sky as it would have been visible from the Acropolis during the
celebration of the Panathenaia. A link is suggested between the timing of the festival, held on the Acropolis, and the
movement of the constellation of Draco, which would have been visible in the night sky during this time. This association is
supported by the half-human half-snake early Athenian kings, the myths associated with the festival, the snake that lived
in the Erechtheion crypt, and the role of Athena in the Giantomachy. The visible surroundings of the Athenian Acropolis
that participants of the nocturnal rites would have seen offer a more nuanced understanding of the relationship between
Greek cosmology, astronomy, and ritual practice.
