Northern Ireland's own 'little Pompeii'

Northern Ireland's own 'little Pompeii' | Social Sciences Topics | Scoop.it

Initial funding has been secured for an ambitious archaeological project to uncover a lost 17th century town in Northern Ireland

 

The site beside Dunluce Castle on the scenic Causeway Coast has been hailed as potentially the region's own "little Pompeii".

 

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has now provided more than £300,000 for an excavation project and signalled the potential for a total package of £4 million.

The ruins of the castle have stood on the rocky coastal outcrop near Bushmills in north Antrim for centuries but it was only four years ago that archaeologists re-discovered a lost settlement beside the landmark.

 

Established in 1608 by the first Earl of Antrim, Randal MacDonnell, the town was destroyed in the uprising of 1641 and was eventually abandoned in 1680.

Penis size does matter | Humans | Science News

Penis size does matter | Humans | Science News | Social Sciences Topics | Scoop.it
A perennial topic of locker room banter and sex columns has caught the attention of scientists: Do women find bigger penises more attractive? The answer, it turns out, is yes. But it's not a purely bigger-is-better relationship.
Jessica E 's insight:

A perfect example of selection. :) Male humans have generally bigger penises for their body size than other animals tend to have.
