5.3 Heritage case studies: Scotland

These case studies introduce various typologies of heritage and the methods used to study them. They help draw attention to the fact that the heritage traditions in England, Scotland and Wales are not the same and are enshrined in slightly different legislation. Every study of heritage requires an understanding of the legal context and the traditions and history governing the object of heritage.

The first case study, by Mary-Catherine Garden, involves public memories of two significant

8.4 The organisation of the mitotic chromosome

In order to prepare the chromosome for mitosis, a process in which DNA molecules become physically separated, an additional stage of compaction occurs to reach the highest level. The processes involved in this final stage of compaction are not clearly understood, but can be represented diagrammatically as in Figure 43. The process probably involves the coiling together of scaffolds into the higher-order structure.

Guido Hülsmann: Inside the Mind of Mises

Why Study the Eucharist in Methodism with David Monkton
Dr David Monkton looks at the place of the Eucharist in Methodism from the time the Wesley’s in the eighteenth century until. He does this by taking us through one of the eucharistic hymns of Charles Wesley: ‘Jesus we thus obey.’ He draws attention to the fact that Methodism, although ‘low church’ in appearances, is ‘high church’ in its theology. Moreover, it expresses its eucharistic theology mainly through its hymns. Other videos you may wish to look at; Why Study the Eucharist

4.2 Simplicity and complexity

As we have already discovered, the concept of ‘simplicity’ is not a simple matter. We saw earlier in the course that the simplicity of folk-song is not the same as classical simplicity, though both influenced the taste of Lieder writers. ‘Heidenröslein’ and ‘Wandrers Nachtlied’ are simple in quite different ways, both in their poetry and in their music. Many other songs by Schubert are much longer, much more complex, and treat the poetry with much greater freedom. This aspect of
