TOPIC OF THE WEEK: WORLD CULTURES

" If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a fitting place."
Margaret Mead

JUDI'S CORNER

This week features a commemorative offering from Britain's Parliamentary Archives:

The Gunpowder Plot: Parliament & Treason 1605
http://www.gunpowderplot.parliament.uk
Britain's parliament has created this site to commemorate the 400th anniversary of the "Guy Fawkes plot," a major attempt to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605. The site traces the background of the Plot using original material from the period held in the archives of the Houses of Parliament and in other archives, museums and libraries.
