Museum collections are often perceived as static entities hidden away in storerooms or trapped behind glass cases. By focusing on the dynamic histories of museum collections, new research reveals their pivotal role in shaping a wide range of social relations. Over time and across space the interactions between these artefacts and the people and institutions who made, traded, collected, researched and exhibited them have generated complex networks of material and social agency. In this innovative volume, the contributors draw on a broad range of source materials to explore the cross-cultural interactions which have created museum collections. These case studies contribute significantly to the development of new theoretical frameworks to examine broader questions of materiality, agency, and identity in the past and present. Grounded in case studies from individual objects and museum collections from North America, Europe, Africa, the Pacific Islands, and Australia, this truly international volume juxtaposes historical, geographical, and cross-cultural studies. This work will be of great interest to archaeologists and anthropologists studying material culture, as well as researchers in museum studies and cultural heritage management.

When an attempt is made to restart the particle accelerator at Geneva during August of 2015, a major disaster occurs. Scientists, who had gathered in Dublin, found they were being called upon to solve a potential catastrophe. While six personnel were the process of repairing the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) a void of accelerated mass is created, trapping the team inside. There seems little hope of survival. In fact, they have not gone anywhere. They now existed in a massless light spectrum beyond which normal vision is not possible. By rights they all should be dead, crushed by the repressurisation of the LHC. They soon realise changes are affecting their personalities as they are bombarded by an onslaught of highly charged protons, causing actual places and events from the past come to life. Bryce, our hero, recognises that Ellen, Bryces love interest, can successfully use Mind Travel techniques to move through time and space. The team, using this same power, focus on a particular element from the periodic table, to literally move from place to place. The team move from place to place until they end up in nineteenth century New Zealand and discover a Maori warrior chief with a recognisable pendant around his neck. It indicates the various experiments being conducted in Geneva in 2015. Upon retrieving the pendant they set off on their mission to regain the other remaining symbols indicated on the pendant. The next item is an electrum necklace located near Queen Hatshepsuts Mortuary Temple. Bryce manages to steal this whilst Hatshepsut and Senenmut make love in his tomb. In the skirmish that follows Jason, Bryces best friend, is wounded by an Egyptian spear. They manage to escape by casting Senenmuts monetary offerings into the air of the Temple of Amun. The team travel to the Rome of Augustus, where they collect the original Res Gestae divi Augustae from the Temple of Vesta. This is to fulfil the next experiment on the Maori pendant. This collection goes relatively smoothly, despite a confrontation Ellen has with some Praetorian Guards. The collection of the death mask of the first wanax (King) from beneath the Lions Gate at Mycenae becomes problematic. John defeats the king, but they now bay for his blood. He manages to escape with the wounded Ellen only to be picked up by a shuttle from Fermilab in California. After a fortunate earthquake at Mycenae, the original team are given the job of reconstructing the damaged Cyclopean wall. The Fermilab shuttle reappears with John aboard. The original team find out from him that three years have elapsed within the period of the day he was absent. With the death mask collected and on aboard the Fermilab rescue team departs but, in doing so, Jason is wounded once again. In the process of collecting the original gold Phaistos disc from Crete, Bryce has a sexual encounter with a princess. Despite his shyness and lack of experience, it was a necessary price to pay to retrieve the last item on the pendant. The collecting process is becoming more of a test of survival. John, Affan and Babette, are all seriously wounded during their time at Pozieres and their Fermilab shuttle is also damaged. They are helped by Ray Palmer, but it is only the beginning of their problems. With LHC and Fermilab now working together they discover that an international espionage group is operating out of the Fermilab site. There has been a security breech and a serious infiltration at the highest levels of the Fermilab management. Billions of dollars in contributions had already been syphoned off. This group had also replaced key personnel with doubles as they are systematically eliminated. It is up to Bryce to put an end to their plan.

For author David P. Cresap, writing poetry began by accident, or rather, it was a guided experience, since he truly believes almost nothing happens by accident. In The Collection, he shares a volume of poetry revolving around the trials and experiences of his life. Cresap aims to teach and provide understanding in order to ease the burdens caused by some of life’s uncomfortable situations. The included poems were written as a result of thoughts, situations, and emotions Cresap has personally experienced. Some came in dreams or spiritual lessons regarding the foundations and principals in the teachings of God. Others grew out of the author’s love of the written word—playing with words, sounds, patterns, and silliness. Universal in nature, the works in this anthology solidify the purpose, goals, understanding, and meaning of one’s life on earth. Cresap shares this collection to help others understand their unique situation and apply the teachings relayed in the poems to enhance their own lives.

The four plays in this collection are unique in many ways. All founded on true experiences, the plays show the complexities of human behaviour and the choices people make. They remind us that our decision and actions can rarely, if ever, be classified in simple terms of black and white. These creative works challenge us to look inside and question ourselves, no matter how difficult the answers may be. And behind every word is the realisation that not only do these things happen, they specifically did occur to the many brave individuals who gave up their stories as a means of educating, entertaining, exploring and challenging. Described by audiences as ?life changing, ? ?brave, ? ?shocking, ? ?self-reflective, ? ?raw, ? ?unlike any other theatre experience, ? ?challenging, ? and ?I didn't know theatre could do this.' Hartley puts all her cards on the table with her writing and is not afraid to tackle the topics others avoid, yet she does so with an honesty, even brutality, that never loses its sensitivity or humour, albeit black humour. Her compassion and respect for those she writes about is clear in ever page of he
