    Popular Archaeology ^ | Wednesday, September 2, 2015 | Durham University/Scottish Soldiers Project
    In November 2013, during construction of a new café for the University's Palace Green Library, on the City's UNESCO World Heritage Site, human remains were uncovered by Durham University archaeologists who were present throughout the building work. The jumbled skeletons of at least 17 and up to 28 individuals were subsequently excavated from two burial pits (a 29th individual was not exhumed). Since then the researchers have been carrying out a wide range of tests to establish their identities. Experts initially considered that most of the evidence was consistent with the bodies being those of the Scottish soldiers but could...

    Ann Coulter's heckler (here, here, here, and here) may have been a kook, but he was right about one thing: many whites came to this country as slaves. With copious help from sources, I will recount a famous episode of Scots enslavement by the British. On September 3, 1650, the British, under Oliver Cromwell, defeated the Scots, under David Leslie, at the Battle of Dunbar. (See 1892 Gardiner's Atlas - Battle of Dunbar September 3rd 1650 for a nice picture of the British and Scots positions.) The British took some 10,000 Scots prisoners, several of whom were, on September 6,...

    An interesting thing is happening in Iowa and New Hampshire, where the early polls matter the most. Carly Fiorina is in third place, and rising. In Iowa, she leads every current and former Republican officeholder and trails only the other insurgent candidates, Donald Trump and Ben Carson. In New Hampshire, she trails Trump and a surprising John Kasich. Thatís bad news for Republican officeholders, good news for the political insurgents, and great news for Fiorina. In all likelihood, she will be the last outsider standing. Political campaigns are long and brutal, with external events often dictating the topics and media...

    Tea Party hero's roadmap to the presidency borrows from the failed presidential runs of Ron Paul and Rudy Giuliani.Itís sometimes easy to forget that Ted Cruz is running for president. While other 2016 Republican candidates are out giving big speeches and attaching themselves to causes and making trips to Europe, Cruz has stayed relatively quiet, which is strange given that his animating purpose up to this point has been to loudly remind you that Ted Cruz exists. The biggest headlines Cruz has earned for himself lately were for a dumb joke he told about Joe Biden just after the vice...

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump warned fellow candidate Carly Fiorina ďBe careful CarlyĒ in a speech in New Hampshire on Friday. After arguing that fellow candidates South Carolina Senator Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC)and former Texas Governor Rick Perry fell in the polls after attacking him, Trump said, ďCarly was a little nasty to me. Be careful Carly. Be careful. But I canít say anything to her, because sheís a woman, and I donít want to be accused of being tough on women. I canít do that, right? Can I do that? Women, am I allowed to fight back? Am I...

    HAMPTON, N.H. óGOP presidential candidate Donald Trump called Boston Mayor Marty Walsh a clown after he was called out to accept the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge Friday. Related "He's a clown, Marty Walsh," Trump said at a rally in New Hampshire Friday night. "This guy Marty Walsh. He spends all this time and effort and money on an Olympic bid, and then he goes out and he's talking about ice bucket challenges. Get a real mayor." Trump did take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge in 2014, though. He also took a jab at Gov. Charlie Baker. "Gov. Baker should...

    So Bernie Sanders is leading in New Hampshire. That cheers me ó though not because he's my ideal candidate, and certainly not because I think he could win in the general election. I'm convinced he would almost certainly lose against all but the loopiest or scariest Republican opponent. Then why am I ó someone almost certain to vote for a Democrat, and hoping to vote for a woman, in 2016 ó so pleased by Sanders' ascent? Because it helps to puncture the aura of inevitability around Hillary Clinton. Yes, she continues to lead in every national poll by a large...

    From Katie Glueck writing at Politico: Six in 10 Republican insiders in the early states say Donald Trump canít win Iowa or New Hampshire. Thatís the assessment of this weekís POLITICO Caucus, our weekly bipartisan survey of the top operatives, strategists and activists in Iowa and New Hampshire. Their conclusion comes on the heels of the latest national poll, from CNN/ORC, that reports the controversial real estate mogul is leading the GOP presidential field even after crudely attacking Fox News host Megyn Kelly last week following the first GOP debate, which she co-moderated.
  • Why New Hampshire Is Ground Zero for the Planned Parenthood Debate

    08/13/2015 4:24:00 PM PDT · by Morgana · 5 replies ^ | August 13, 2015 | Karyn Bruggeman
    The debate over federal funding for Planned Parenthood is boiling over in Washington. But the strongest political consequences in 2016 might come in New Hampshire. Last week New Hampshire became the third state, along with Alabama and Louisiana, to cut back state funding for Planned Parenthood in response to controversial videos documenting the group's participation in fetal-tissue-donation programs. While the dozens of presidential candidates visiting the state have all eagerly chimed in on the issue, New Hampshire will also host competitive races for Senate and governor next year. In an important state where women's health has been a central political...

    In a 1992 study, Carson and his colleagues from Johns Hopkins used fetal tissue to better understand how the human brain develops. But in the wake of the Planned Parenthood videos, the presidential candidate has called fetal tissue research ďdisturbing.Ē Ben Carson, a Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon and Republican presidential candidate, previously did research using human fetal tissue. In the wake of the hidden-camera videos showing Planned Parenthood doctors discussing how to provide aborted fetuses to scientific researchers, Carson has told Fox News that the benefits of this research have been ďoverpromisedĒ and ďunder-delivered.Ē Late on Wednesday, an OB/GYN and science...

    Ben Carson defended the use of fetal tissue for medical research Thursday, after a blog published excerpts of a 1992 paper describing work the neurosurgeon-turned-presidential candidate carried out using aborted fetuses. In an interview with the Washington Post, Carson called the revelation "desperate," and ignorant of the way medical research was carried out. "You have to look at the intent," Carson said before beginning a campaign swing through New Hampshire. "To willfully ignore evidence that you have for some ideological reason is wrong. If youíre killing babies and taking the tissue, thatís a very different thing than taking a dead...
