22nd October 2016, 0 comments Countless “Woldmanndli” (men of the forest) have emerged from the Gurschen Forest, canton Uri, and noisily entered the village of Andermatt, ringing cowbells and blowing goat horns.The 600-year-old tradition has nothing to do with evil spirits or terrifying fertility rituals but, perhaps surprisingly, with avalanche protection. In the Middle Ages Andermatt, in central Switzerland, was covered in trees, but as the local population worked their way through these – to build houses and to keep warm – the threat from landslides and avalanches increased.In 1397, the valley dwellers declared what is now the Gurschen Forest to be a Bannwald (avalanche protection forest). According to Andermatt Tourism, the declarati...

Traversing a field in North Yorkshire, Lee Rossiter’s metal detector made the noise that makes all treasure seekers sweat with anxiety, but when he unearthed a ring, his friend identified it as “costume jewelry,” and suggested he “just throw it away.” Rossiter’s daughter, for whom the metal detector was initially intended, rejected treasure hunting pursuits, and this moment, a moment that far too many treasure hunters are familiar with, seemed to retroactively validate her decision. Or it would have, had the heaviness of the ring not prompted Rossiter to seek out another opinion.Rossiter’s band of treasure seekers, the Yorkshire Searchers Metal Detecting Club, was being headed by dig organizer, Stuart Littlewood.

    WITTENBERG, GERMANY — Dead 470 years, Martin Luther's light has yet to go out in Germany. Indeed, the onetime monk who taught 37 years at the University of Wittenberg and preached more than 2,000 sermons in this small German city promises to beam his light across the nation, across Europe and the world as ceremonies begin this month to mark the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. For Catholics who did not grow up hearing much about Luther -- at least not much that was edifying -- the year ahead promises not a revisionist history so much as a fresh look at the man who altered history by defying both the pope and the Holy Roman emperor in the early 16th century. Ahead of his time by centuries, critics concede, Luther fough...
