BBC - Travel - The Israeli park with a valuable secret
Walk — and crawl — through El Castillo cave to see the 40,year-old painting that has scientists questioning the origins of human creativity. I gasped at my first glimpse of a cave painting: a crude red outline of a deer with one wild circle for an eye. Its iron pigments blazed under the lamplight. The illusion of a breastbone emerged, ingeniously, out of a hump in the limestone wall. After a while, a cave becomes a long black tunnel of sensory deprivation; the sight of this tender image jolted my breath back to life. When Homo sapiens first began their northward migration from Africa to Europe around 40, years ago, some joined the Neanderthals here in Cantabria, a region that is home to at least 40 painted caves, including El Castillo.
The Israeli park with a valuable secret
We can only speculate why these ancient humans — whose perfectly preserved bodies have been discovered in bogs, mires and moors across Northern Europe — were violently murdered. As my train from Hamburg to Denmark chugged past soggy green fields and sun-dappled birch forests, we passed yet another willow-shrouded bog topped with blue green algae or tidy duckweed. My train had entered bog body country. Bog bodies are 2,year old humans discovered in the bogs, mires and moors across Northern Europe, from Ireland to Poland.
The Church of England has published a letter to the Prime Minister signed by 84 of its bishops calling for the Government to increase the number of Syrian refugees being resettled in the UK "to a minimum of 50," over the next five years. We also hear the experiences of families of minority faith traditions living in the UK. In a frank assessment of the future of Church of England buildings, a panel led by the Bishop of Worcester, the Right Reverend John Inge, recommends the closure of rural churches where there is low attendance and a much more imaginative use of existing church buildings. He discusses the finding with William Crawley.
