Archaeologists announce new discoveries at the necropolis of Porta Nola, Pompeii

As the first season of a three-year project at the site of Porta Nola, Pompeii draws to a close, The British School at Rome reported some of the preliminary results from this year’s excavations. The international multidisciplinary project (British School at Rome; Ilustre Colegio Oficial de Doctores y Licenciados en Letras y Ciencias de Valencia y Castellòn, Departamento de Arqueologia; Museo de Prehistoria e Historia de La Diputación De Valencia; with the support of the Ministero dei Beni e delle attività culturali e del turismo – Soprintendenza Speciale per i Beni Archeologici di Pompei, Ercolano e Stabia) studying the necropolis of Porta Nola (Pompeii) has as its objective the investigation of the population of Pompeii, and more generally the Roman population, using new archaeological data and techniques. The study of the necropolis permits the study of the physical characteristics of the

British Library rejects world's biggest collection of Taliban-related documents fearing terror laws

Academics have criticised the British government for creating a "climate of fear" after the national library declined to store the world's biggest collection of Taliban-related documents over concerns it could be prosecuted under terrorism laws. A group of international researchers spent years putting together a trove of documents related to the Afghan Taliban, including official newspapers from their time in power, poems, maps, radio broadcasts, and several volumes of laws and edicts -- digitising the estimated two to three million words and translating everything into English. It was hoped the project, which was launched in 2012 and included members of the British Library on its advisory board, would prove an unprecedented resource for academics and officials trying to understand the movement and the ongoing insurgency in Afghanistan. But despite hopes that the library would host a master copy of the digital collection, it got cold feet at the last

Sotheby's Hong Kong to offer The Cowdray Pearls - one of the finest & rarest grey pearl necklaces known

Polish deputy culture minister Piotr Zuchowski 99 percent sure Nazi train exists

Poland's deputy culture minister said Friday he saw a ground-penetrating radar image of the alleged Nazi train that has set off a gold rush, adding that he is 99 percent sure it exists. Local media have for days been abuzz with old lore of trains full of gold and jewels stolen by the Nazis after two men -- a German and a Pole -- claimed to have found an armoured train car in the southwestern city of Walbrzych. "I saw a good quality ground-penetrating radar image showing what the train looks like," Deputy Culture Minister Piotr Zuchowski told reporters, adding that he could make out platforms and gun positions on the photo. "I'm more than 99 percent sure such a train exists, but the nature of its contents is unverifiable at the moment," added Zuchowski, who is also the national heritage conservation officer. Friday's revelations elicited a response from the World Jewish Congress (WJC) regarding the mystery contents of

Exhibition at Bankside Gallery offers a new insight into the life of Agatha Christie

The Agatha Christie: Unfinished Portrait photography exhibition offers a new insight into the life of Agatha Christie and opened at Bankside Gallery in London this summer, as part of the 125th anniversary celebrations of the Queen of Crime. Featuring never before seen photographs from the author's private collection, the exhibition illustrates the life behind the works of the most widely published author of all time. Each image is accompanied by a quote in Christie's own words, drawn from both published works and unpublished personal correspondence, beautifully capturing her thoughts and feelings from early childhood, through both marriages and her international adventures, to her years as a world famous author. A timeline sits alongside the pictures and mark the key milestones in Christie's life. The jewel in the crown of the exhibition is a portrait of Agatha Christie by expressionist painter Oscar Kokoschka, painted in 1969
