Following the route of 88 Buddhist temples on the Shikoku Pilgrimage, this rich multimedia story brings you into an ancient landscape.”


You don't have to be there, to be there.


Thank You Beverley!...

Thanks to Beverley Ballin Smith for making her report available - and thanks to Sigurd for posting this…..


To quote Sigurd….

“A Data Structure Report (DSR) is a technical report of excavation – an intermediate summary to define the results, initial interpretation and questions that assist developing in post-excavation analysis and future strategy.”

A different aspect of interpreting the progress/process of the dig at the Ness of Brodgar.  The download has lots of extra information, and images I’ve never come across before.  It’ll take a good few readings!

I’ve followed developments at the Ness with great interest through the years – this piece describes my experience of the early days..…..


Not knowledgably archaeological – just my own observations/thoughts/responses.

And it all started with plans for a wildflower meadow – I think that’s ace.

This week sees the Security and Policing exhibition return to Farnborough: 14th-16th March 2023

Dear friends,

This morning delegates from arms companies and countries all around the world will be visiting Farnborough for Security and Policing 2023, which is taking place on 14th, 15th and 16th March.

CAAT activists, as part of  Greater Rushmoor Action for Peace, are taking action outside the exhibition centre to demand that delegates find peaceful alternatives to security and the real causes of conflict, and to make sure that the delegates know they are not welcome in Farnborough, or anywhere else!

I’m new to CAAT and, until very recently, had no idea of the size of this huge event – there are hundreds of exhibitors AND the whole event is sponsored by the Home Office on behalf of the UK government. 

The highlighted areas of interest on the exhibition’s ‘Who Should Exhibit’ page include: Policing and Counter Terrorism, Border Security, Offender Management, Cyber Security, Major Event Security, and Crowded Places. 

With the Illegal Immigration and Public Order Bills making their way through Parliament, it all makes me wonder what is behind these headings.

Here is a link to CAAT’s details of the exhibition, where you can read all about it and the exhibitors; it’s interesting to see how many household names are involved in this creeping area of control.

If you are able to, please donate today so that we can carry out research and keep up our pressure on the government, the manufacturers and suppliers in this growing area of our work. If you are not able to help at the moment, you can read about other ways to get involved in this work in the new CAAT News magazine, due out shortly. 

CAAT - Donate 

Thank you so much for your support in so many ways, I’m looking forward to getting to know you!
