A deep autobiographical soul-searching drives Merryl, a despairing mother of four approaching middle age, to delve into the flagging of her striving Christian spirit. Tortured by the bitter memory of her brusque response to her young son ‘s loving gesture during a marriage crisis twenty years in the past, Merryl relives her pain over a twenty-four hour journey back through the intervening years of trauma, 1967 to 1987, searching for the love she so cruelly threw away. Merryl capsulizes her heart-trek in a concluding selection of her poetry.

Overheard on a Saltmarsh

A goblin is happily making salt-crystal "bling" for himself, until he spots the nymph's green glass beads and is overwhelmed by desire for them. He asks for the beads, he demands the beads, he whines and begs for the beads. But the nymph has her own purpose for the beads, using them to do her science-magic ... Marcia Santore's colorful pictures retell the story of Overheard on a Saltmarsh, introducing Harold Monro's beloved poem to a new generation of children, while raising an important question: Just because some guy asks you for something, does that mean you have to give it him? Children (and adults!) will identify with the envy and desire of the tantruming goblin on the one hand, and with the serious-minded work of the gentle but firm nymph. The book also provides an opportunity to talk with children about when sharing is important and when maintaining personal boundaries is important, as well as the difference between "want" and "need." And that sometimes the right answer is "No." Don't miss the salt crystal-making activity in the back!

Excavations on the site of this remarkable fort in northern Bulgaria (1996–2005) formed part of a long-term program of excavation and intensive field survey, aimed at tracing the economic as well as physical changes which mark the transition from the Roman Empire to the Middle Ages, a program that commenced with the excavation and full publication of the early Byzantine fortress/city of Nicopolis ad Istrum. The analysis of well-dated finds and their full publication provides a unique database for the late Roman period in the Balkans; they include metal-work, pottery (local and imported fine ware), glass, copper alloy finds, inscriptions and dipinti (on amphorae), as well as quantified environmental reports on animal, birds, and fish with specialist reports on the archaeobotanical material, glass analysis, and querns. The report also details the results of site-specific intensive survey, a new method developed for use in the rich farmland of the central Balkans. In addition, there is a detailed report on a most remarkable and well-preserved aqueduct, which employed the largest siphon ever discovered in the Roman Empire. This publication will provide a substantial database of material and environmental finds, an invaluable resource for the region and for the Roman Empire: material invaluable for studies, which seeks to place the late Roman urban and military identity within its regional and extra-regional economic setting.

Worldwide research on ancient glass began in the early 20th century. A consensus has been reached in the community of Archaeology that the first manmade or synthetic glasses, based on archaeological findings, originated in the Middle East during the 5000-3000's BC. By contrast, the manufacturing technology of pottery and ceramics were well developed in ancient China. The earliest pottery and ceramics dates back to the Shang Dynasty - the Zhou Dynasty (1700 BC-770 BC), while the earliest ancient glass artifacts unearthed in China dates back to the Western Han Dynasty. Utilizing the state-of-the art analytical and spectroscopic methods, the recent findings demonstrate that China had already developed its own glassmaking technology at latest since 200 BC. There are two schools of viewpoint on the origin of ancient Chinese glass. The more common one believes that ancient Chinese glass originated from the import of glassmaking technology from the West as a result of Sino-West trade exchanges in the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-25 AD). The other scientifically demonstrates that homemade ancient Chinese glass with unique domestic formula containing both PbO and BaO were made as early as in the Pre-Qin Period or even the Warring States Period (770 BC-221 BC), known as Yousha or Faience.This English version of the previously published Chinese book entitled Development History of Ancient Chinese Glass Technology is for universities and research institutes where various research and educational activities of ancient glass and history are conducted. With 18 chapters, the scope of this book covers very detailed information on scientifically based findings of ancient Chinese glass development and imports and influence of foreign glass products as well as influence of the foreign glass manufacturing processes through the trade exchanges along the Silk Road(s).

Excavations at the Ban Wang Hai archaeological site at Muang district, Lamphun province, northern Thailand, revealed numerous graves of adults, infants and newborns, dating back more than 2000 years. Many graves were accompanied by items such as iron tools, bronze ornaments, glass beads, and clay pots, providing fascinating new insights into a little-known period of prehistory in this part of Southeast Asia. The rarity of such finds within this region, and the quality of their condition, mark this site as one of great archaeological interest. The Ban Wang Hai site was studied between 1996 and 1998 as the second part of a cooperative undertaking between the Fine Arts Department of Thailand and the French government represented by the Guimet Museum in Paris, the National Center of Scientific Research, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The first part of the Thai-French Prehistoric Research Project, from 1985-1995, studied the Paleolithic culture at the Ob Luang archaeological site at Hot district, Chiang Mai province. The project was undertaken by a team led by French archaeologists Jean-Pautreau and Patricia Mornais, in association with Tasana Doy-Asa of the Division of Archaeology, Fine Arts Department, Thailand.
