Isny sz Die archäologischen Grabungen in der südlichen Altstadt in Isny sind beendet. Grabungsleiter . Jonathan Scheschkewitz stellt die Ergebnisse am 8. Dezember der Öffentlichkeit vor.Dass ein ganzes Altstadtquartier, wie in Isny, neu bebaut wird, ist eine Herausforderung aber auch ein Glücksfall für die Mittelalter-Archäologie. So großflächig kann innerhalb von Altstädten selten gegraben werden. Das Grabungsareal im Sanierungsgebiet Südliche Altstadt habe sich als sehr ergiebig erwiesen. Das betroffene Stadtviertel war nach einem verheerenden Stadtbrand 1631 nie wieder vollständig bebaut worden, unter dem Brandschutt sind viele Fundstücke und wertvolle Spuren erhalten geblieben.Seit Juli 2012 wurde in dem Areal gegraben, seit Oktober ...

Body: 
Last month Gloucestershire based Mypower began the historic installation of 150 solar panels on the Nave roof of the 1,000 year old Gloucester Cathedral. It is the building of its type in the world to have Solar PV. The 38kw solar array will help the cathedral cut its electricity bills by 25 per cent which is about the same amount of power used by 7 family houses. This solar PV is a small but hugely important part of Project Pilgrim at Gloucester Cathedral which is a ten-year programme developing the cathedral and its grounds. The solar PV system will help the Church of England achieve is ambitious “Shrinking the Footprint” campaign which aims to reduce its carbon emissions by 80 per cent by 2050.

Body: 
Falstaff had the girth and beard to make for a decent Santa, but Shakespeare never wrote anything close to a Christmas play. Which might pose a problem for Folger Shakespeare Library hoping to present some holiday fare. But they've gotten hold of another text from the middle ages that involves the shepherds who followed the star of Bethlehem to come upon the nativity scene of the first Christmas. But the first thing to happen in "The Second Shepherds' Play" is a much more comic caper about a missing sheep investigation that takes them to another cradle, where a couple are hiding the animal in its own swaddling clothes and pretending it's a baby. How to meld these two stories of vastly different tones? What could be better than music? And...

New Delhi :   A 1000-year-old Viking toolbox has been discovered by scientists inside a mysterious, ring-shaped fortress in Denmark. A set of extraordinary iron tools has been found inside the toolbox. It appears the tools may have been used in making ships, jewellery and houses. The 10th-century Danish king Harald Bluetooth is believed to have ordered the construction of the fortress. Researchers said now only traces of the wooden chest that once held the tools have remained. At least 14 iron tools from a gatehouse building of the fortress were excavated by archaeologists. A craftsman lived in a workroom in the gatehouse until it collapsed in the late 10th century, said researchers, adding, the tools may have belonged to him. Several so...

Scientists have discovered a 1,000-year-old Viking toolbox in a mysterious, ring-shaped fortress in Denmark, containing a set of extraordinary iron tools that may have been used to make ships, houses, and jewellery.
