Parachute cord, which is now universally known as paracord, is a lightweight nylon rope originally used by paratroopers during World War II. It is now employed as a general purpose utility cord by military personnel and civilians alike. Paracord is an ideal material for making whips, for example, due to its durability and flexibility. Hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts have made “survival bracelets” from paracord, which are meant to be unraveled when needed to secure cargo, lash together poles, and fix broken straps and laces. As more colors become available, crafters are discovering that paracord makes an excellent material for fun and stylish friendship bracelets, lanyards, belts, dog leases, key chains, and more.

Excavations made necessary by coastal erosion have revealed probably the best preserved Bronze Age settlement sequence in Southern Britain. Five metres of deposits contained five prehistoric occupation phases separated by blown sand and eroded soil. The two lowest horizons, containing Beaker pottery, were followed by a layer with biconical urns and an oval stone structure; then came a rich middle Bronze Age layer with two round houses superseded by a late Bronze Age midden type deposit which produced two gold bracelets. At the top was a sub-Roman cemetery. The Bronze Age layers contained an abundance of pottery and other artefacts, including fired clay objects which represent one of the earliest salt extraction sites in Atlantic Europe. Environmental evidence was also prolific and contributions are included on soil thin sections, chemistry, magnetic properties, pollen, diatoms, ostracods, charred plant remains, animal bones, coprolites, and molluscs. The site seems to have been an island in the Bronze Age, with a considerable expanse of infrequently inundated saltmarsh to its south. The causes of the alternating sequence of sand deposition and stabilisation are considered in the context of environmental change generally in the Severn Estuary and the Somerset Levels.

The large amount of cemetery data available from the Upper Seine Basin is exploited here in this study of regionality, gender and social differentiation, and cultural behaviour in the Iron Age. Analysing evidence such as body positioning and artefact placement, rather than the objects and human remains themselves, Thomas Evans looks for patterns in cultural behaviour and examines the ways in which people represented their identity in death. He concludes that a single cultural identity can be discerned from the evidence. This identity shows a lack of clear gender division, a growing emphasis on warfare and all its accoutrements (whether for real or symbolic purposes) through time, and that a system of prestige exchange was operating during the final Hallstatt and ealy La Tene periods.
