Short🧵. As many people know, Laxton, in Nottinghamshire, is one of the few places in England where large-scale #medieval open #fields survive, still collectively organised & managed in the same way that they were 6 and more centuries ago. … /1
The term ‘open fields’ has become shorthand for large (often huge) areas of arable, subdivided into unhedged blocks (‘furlongs’), subdivided in turn into narrow strips (‘selions’). #medieval #landscape. /2
And the strips (selions) in each furlong were shared out, one by one in repetitive order, between the village’s farmers. This 1617 map from Balsham, Cambs., names of the farmer of each strip. By 1617 some had acquired & merged neighbouring strips, others had subdivided theirs. /3

प्रकृति: रक्षति रक्षिता ! Mangrove forest after a cyclone. The line of defense after a cyclone.
#Mangrove; not only home for various species but also a tool against #Disaster. Tropical country like India, with densely populated 7500 km long coastline, will be effected by cyclones more due to #ClimateChange. This salt tolerant species acts as a shield against cyclones. 2/n
So how it works. Reposting my old tweets. Mangroves create a maze & dense habitat. With species which are salt tolerant & special adaptations. They act like buffer & consume the winds & energy. So after passing the storms get dampen. 3/n

They are prop roots. In #mangrove #ecosystem they are adventitious support roots. They Grow down from lateral branches, in a way support trees, with doing other root functions. Additionally roots buffer against damage to coasts & enhance biodiversity & carbon sequestration.

'The 2017 select committee inquiry into #parks got a staggering response from the public', says Clive Betts MP, opening #ParksAndGreenSpacesAPPG meeting reviewing what has happened since its report was published...
Betts points out that the funding of councils is a big element in the success of #parks - as the cost of social care (a statutory service) goes up, there is less ££ for green spaces (which are not statutory)...
Betts: 'We didn't think making #parks a statutory service would help - after all, #libraries are a statutory service, but that didn't protect them from closure...' #ParksAndGreenSpacesAPPG

I lost another ferrule off my hiking stick up on the hills today, but it was worth it!
The snow is still really thick and powdery and the sun was bright.

I wondered why Izzy was lagging behind instead of pushing on in front like she normally does.

Then I realised it was the depth of the snow. She was doing the sensible thing and following in my footsteps!

Once the snow got less deep Izzy was back out in front again with a waggy tail.

There’s no doubt about it, Izzy loves going on walks!

I'd rather stare at a tree than...(insert most other activities) Here's a #timelapse of this painting, the first layers are acrylic so the yellow wouldn't muddy the other colors. There was a masking disaster...how do people ensure a clean masking removal? #process

Well, this is an astonishingly poor effort from @royalsociety; a #DataGovernance "explainer" that tips its hand by its examples (i.e. health data) but not once in 28 pages mentions significant bodies like @HRA_Latest, for #ResearchEthics approval, or #CAG!
royalsociety.org/-/media/policy… Image
While there are a whole bunch of players in what is an increasingly crowded/confused/confusing landscape, to miss out two of the key *statutory* #governance bodies seems more than a little remiss 🤦🏻‍♂️
If you are interested, and want to dig a bit deeper into the (#regulatory, not just #governance) #landscape around #health #data in particular, I recommend @EleHrwch & @claumartinezv's map:

Morning everyone! I’m Katy and I’m going to tweet about #archaeology, #geology and #landscape. But mostly, about #sarsen stone in the county of Wiltshire, UK. Thank you to @lornarichardson and @James__Dixon for organising #PATC5 and for accepting this paper 0/16 The abstract for this Twitter paper: This paper takes one of my recent #DailySarsen tweets and tells a story of the sarsen stone depicted in that previously-tweeted photo. Much of my public archaeology happens out-of-doors. The frightening reality of a serious communicable disease that has no vaccine means it will be some time before I can once more welcome people into Sarsen Country. My small efforts to recover a sense of Sarsen Country digitally, with #DailySarsen, have been welcomed by friends old and new. So here is an elaboration of one of the tweets; I hope people will enjoy the tale.
During CV-19 lockdown and as long as distancing measures apply, my public archaeology landscape walks in #SarsenCountry are suspended. Groups trips for local/regional societies to visit places in Wiltshire (UK) where sarsen stones can be seen are off-limits #PATC5 #DailySarsen 1/ The title of my paper for the Public Archaeology Twitter Conference is ‘#DailySarsen, or, Walking hand-in-hand with human and non-human friends’. Katy Whitaker, University of Reading/Historic England @artefactual_KW
Sarsens are the large grey boulders making the familiar shapes of Stonehenge, and Avebury’s great circles. They’re in medieval church walls. They pave our streets and protect grass verges. Sites in southern England from Dorset to Norfolk make #SarsenCountry #PATC5 #DailySarsen 2/ A photograph of Stonehenge showing some of the tall upright grey sarsen stones capped by horizontal sarsen lintels. Two sarsens lie in the grass in the foreground.

THREAD. The East Anglian #fen basin was one of the richest and most populous areas of #medieval England... this thread explores how local communities managed the #landscape that produced the wealth that built huge parish churches - like this one at Terrington St Clement
2. There were more people making enough in the early 14thC to be liable for tax than almost anywhere else in England, and the average community was among the wealthiest n the country. So where did their money come from?
3. Their money came from the dairy cattle that grazed the fen wetland in huge common herds. Almost every household had 4 or 5 cattle &, even if it had little or no arable land, was often wealthier than an upland farmer with 30 acres of arable. How did they achieve this?
