Today, medieval historian Dr Sophie Page and I began working on a new research project at University College London. This follows on from the major exhibition ‘Spellbound’ at the Ashmolean Museum earlier this year, which Sophie and Marina Wallace co-curated. This new project, will culminate in a symposium and public showing of the artworks produced. I will post further images and information about this as we progress. #magic #ucl #history #medieval #research #art #collaboration #archives

dawnnewbeginning. As part of volunteering for the Natural History Society of Northumbria

As part of volunteering for the Natural History Society of Northumbria, I am putting together a blog post about the role that naturalists played in "exploring" and mapping new regions. I spent my Master's writing about the colonial history of Greenland and the Faroe Islands, so getting to return to my special interest and to 18th and 19th century travel literature and conceptions of "The North" makes this autist one happy lass! ☀️ This particular map isn't in the NHSN's archives; it's from E Bowen's 1747 "A complete system of geography", a copy of which I believe is held in the University of Aberdeen's Special Collections. I'm planning to get to the NHSN's archives next week to make the most of the naturalist travel literature on offer! . . #specialinterest #scandinavia #north #thenorth #maps #cartography #archive #archives #archivist #museum #heritage #actuallyAutistic #neurodiversity #neurodivergent #neurodiverse #autism #autist #autistic #autisticgirl #autisticwoman #autisticwomen

A veiw of Calcutta from fort William C 1807 with Duburgh as engraver along with detailed caption on the Aquatint. Aquatint with a view of Calcutta from Fort William, from a set of prints published by Edward Orme in 1807 and part of King George III's Topographical Collection. The East India Company established a fortified trading station in 1690 along the Hooghly River on the east coast of India. This spot, formerly the site of small villages, then expanded into the city of Calcutta, which by 1773 became the effective capital of British India. The town was originally clustered close to the fort for defence. However in 1757, it was decided to rebuild it in Gobindpore, south of the trading settlement. New arrivals sailing to Calcutta passed the octagonal fort before reaching the city. They were often impressed by the approach. John Prinsep wrote in 1771, 'The Stream seemed to widen as we proceeded and straight before use we beheld a stately forest of masts, vessels, an immense city and the bustle of commercial business'. Source: http://www.bl.uk/onlinegallery/onlineex/kinggeorge/a/003ktop00000115u046a0000.html To explore further on the stories linked with fort william, & commercial expansion of East India Company. The major stakeholders of its time & struggle for the control of subcontinent that was governed from this fortification.

brut_archives. HISTORIC CLOTHING • today we share this crazy pattern from our archive

HISTORIC CLOTHING • today we share this crazy pattern from our archives ! This design is part of hippy history. Made by The East West Musical Instruments Company originally opened as a music shop in the Castro district of San Francisco in 1967. Legend has it that the owner decided to make a leather jacket with an old sewing machine they had on the premises, which wound up being purchased by none other than Janis Joplin. After that, the shop made leather jackets it's main focus, and went on to create amazing designs until it's closure in the early 80s. I love everything about this jacket, all the details are about nature, peace and love ! Did you hear about that brand before ? Do you want to hear more clothing histories ? #brutarchives #vintagemenswear #menswear #menstyle #vintagestyle #sanfrancisco #hippie #design #vintagedesign #design #archives #vintageclothing #ultra #collectibleclothing

Hell Sucks | “Khe Sanh was a very bad place then, but the airstrip there was the worst place in the world. It was what Khe Sanh had instead of a V-ring, the exact, predictable object of the mortars and rockets hidden in the surrounding hills, the sure target of the big Russian and Chinese guns lodged in the side of CoRoc Ridge, eleven kilometers aways across the Laotian border. There was nothing random about the shelling there, and no one wanted anything to do with it. If the wind was right, you could hear the NVA .50-calibers starting far up the valley whenever a plane made its approach to the strip, and the first incoming artillery would precede the landings by seconds. If you were waiting there to be taken out, there was nothing you could do but curl up in the trench and try to make yourself small, and if you were coming in on the plane, there was nothing you could do, nothing at all.” _ Michael Herr’s words are an excellent primer on the conditions faced by the Marines at Khe Sanh Combat Base in 1967 and 1968. The base was a remote outpost, surrounded by hills full of enemy forces and covered in wet fog for most of the year; a detriment to the necessary aerial resupply of the base. Despite its tactical shortcomings, Khe Sanh became the object of fascination for General Westmoreland (then-commander of US Forces in Vietnam). Westmoreland believed Khe Sanh was the primary target for a massive enemy offensive, and thus committed 6,000 US Marines—plus a significant amount of air and fire support—to the defense of the base. 1968 was a bad time. The combat base saw some of the heaviest shelling in the war. In February, there was particularly brutal artillery barrage: “1,500 rounds that night, six rounds a minute for more minutes than anyone could bear to count.” As Herr noted, there’s not much you can do during a strike. Find yourself in the deepest corner of the nearest trench and make yourself small. The indiscriminate nature of artillery is truly terrifying. Shells are fired from many kilometers away, silent as they arc through the sky and preceded only by a high-pitched whistle seconds before impact. As the aphorism states, “There are no atheists in foxholes.”
