«Though we still think of ancient Greece and Rome in terms of white marble sparkling under a hot Mediterranean sun, the new exhibition shows a Greco-Roman lady as she was meant to be seen – in technicolour.

«Early Historic Scotland has long been thought of as a barbaric and dark time, dominated by blue-painted Picts and marauding Vikings. But Scots academics are set to dispel this notion with research to be published later this year depicting the country during this period as a place of flourishing creative and intellectual work, open to, and trading with, the continent.»

«Earthquakes—several in the range of 5.0 and higher—are still rocking the coast of Japan. But the aftershocks are dropping off, both in strength and frequency.»

«Paleontologists have not found much of Oxalaia quilombensis. A fragment of the snout and a portion of the upper jaw are all that is known of this dinosaur.

«The Anglesey Rock Art Project recently extended their programme to include excavation and re­cording of megalithic rock art on a stone at Llwydiarth Esgob Farm.
