Is the Islamic State committing genocide?

Description

Recently I had a chance to visit the Christian community of Tur Abdin in Eastern Turkey, a long standing community. The monasteries where I stayed dated to the 5th century AD. The people are generous and welcoming, but there is certainly a feeling of isolation and anger in the community as well. You can see Syria stretching out in the distance from the Mor Hananyo Monastery. The people have family and friends in Syria and Iraq. These are the Christians who have been subjected to the brutality of the Islamic State (IS) along with the Yazidi, Shabak and Shia people of the region. Yet, this is nothing new to the people of Tur Abdin. The monasteries, with their austere beauty and clockwork way of life, give the impression of tranquility.

Archaeology of Medieval and Tudor Britain

Description

The aim of this course is to provide a broad understanding of the archaeology of Britain in the period c. 1066-1600. Although the bulk of the material will relate to England and Wales, occasional reference will be made to Scotland and Ireland. The course takes a necessarily broad approach to the archaeology of the period. Although the treatment of excavated data will form an important component of the syllabus, other types of evidence will also be considered. For instance, the course will examine the architecture of monasteries and parish churches, consider the Bayeaux Tapestry as a critical source for the interpretation of Norman castles, and stress the importance of the English landscape as an historical document.

The Viking Age Scotland and the Irish Sea Provinces

Description

Viking warriors from Scandinavia began to attack the coasts of western Europe towards the end of the eighth century. Christian writers registered their shock and horror at these raids by pagans upon monasteries, churches and royal sites. The raiders were mobile, using highly manoeuvrable light-weight sailing ships, which could also be rowed. They caught te armies of the Christian kingdoms unprepared, lacking the organisation to deal with them effectively. But there was much more to the Vikings than mere raiding for portable wealth, which in any case had been a regular activity in European societies for sometime. It was Norwegian Vikings who first travelled to Scotland and into the Irish Sea, exploring and raiding. It was an easy journey from the west coast of Norway to the Northern Isles o

Cistercian Monks as Metallurgists - Iron Technology at Rievalx Abbey c. 1130-1600 AD (24 Feb 2011)

Description

Gerry McDonnell gives a talk for the Ian Ramsay Seminar Series on 24th February 2011. Iron was fundamental to the construction and operation of any large scale building in medieval Europe, whether castle or abbey. The long-standing interpretation of the development of iron smelting technology in England argued for a step change in technology in the late 15th Century when small scale bloomery iron production was replaced by blast furnaces producing a tonne of cast iron per day. This model has been undermined by the recent evidence of 'blast-furnaces' in Scandinavia in the 10/11th centuries AD. Therefore the Cistercians monasteries with their strong European network could play a major role in the evolution of iron technology in Europe spanning the critical period of technological develop Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/
