Sheaf-like arrangement of lamellae in a blend of polyethylenes
A replica of a 3:1 blend of linear with lightly branched polyethylenes (BPE has 26 branched per 1000 backbone carbon atoms) after isothermal crystallisation at a temperature at which the LPE but not the BPE can crystallise. This sample crystallised from a phase separated melt. There are clearly two lamellar types (The isothermal crystallisation makes the distinction clearer). The thick, LPE rich, lamellae crystallised in sheaf-like groups, from LPE rich droplets contained in a BPE rich matrix. T

Archaeology of Medieval and Tudor Britain
The aim of this course is to provide a broad understanding of the archaeology of Britain in the period c. 1066-1600. Although the bulk of the material will relate to England and Wales, occasional reference will be made to Scotland and Ireland. The course takes a necessarily broad approach to the archaeology of the period. Although the treatment of excavated data will form an important component of the syllabus, other types of evidence will also be considered. For instance, the course will examin

Town and Country in Roman Britain
This course aims to look at the archaeology of various types of urban centres in the province of Britannia Roman Britain and the settlements in the rural areas around them. In particular we will examine the inter-dependence and possible relationships of towns and countryside. We cannot ignore the fact that Britain was only one small province of an Empire which stretched from Asia Minor to Scotland and the Sahara Desert to the rivers Rhine and Danube. We may therefore occasionally have to conside

Muscles
This topic starts with a basic introduction to muscles and an image illustrating the possible locations of the different muscle tissues. The three types of muscle tissue are described in more detail. Along with the features of muscle tissue (e.g. contractibility), the functions of these tissues (e.g. support) are discussed.

Chris Difford Guest Lecture "Cool for Cats..."
On Thursday 19 November, double Ivor Novello Award winner Chris Difford delivered on song writing to a full lecture theatre. It was a moment to remember for all in attendance, with one member of staff commenting, "I've worked here for sixteen years and that was the best hour yet". Chris' anecdotes and advice were especially appreciated by the song writers and music production students in the audience. With over 25 years of experience, and a single-minded attitude, Chris has become one of the mos

Cell Differentials
Cell Differentials offers a visual dataset of white blood cells that gives students practice in developing strategies and techniques for the recognition of these blood cell types. Over 100 different cell images are randomly presented with feedback on successful identification. In traditional labs, the recognition of white blood cell types can be compromised by several factors. Developmental changes can make recognition difficult and some cell types exhibit similar features. Microscopy can be a

BeeVisit
BeeVisit enables students to evaluate the relative contributions of different pollinator species to a plant's reproductive success through an interactive model of pollen transfer. The model tracks a plant's presentation of pollen through time; pollen may be presented gradually or all at once, and the program lets you choose from a family of power curves to model the shape of the cumulative pollen presentation curve over a set number of time intervals (usually 100). Then, 'bees' of 1, 2, or 3 ty

The Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs
This is an introduction to programming and computer science. This course exposes students to techniques of abstraction at several levels: (a) within a programming language, using higher-order functions, manifest types, data-directed programming, and message-passing; (b) between programming languages, using functional and rule-based languages as examples. It also relates these techniques to the practical problems of implementation of languages and algorithms on a von Neumann machine. There are se
