Computer technology: robotic milking and interactive mirrors
What have computers got to do with cows? Can a wooden mirror help us understand the computing behind digital image capture?

Professor Christine Griffin inaugural lecture: Identity and belonging in young people’s lives
The lecture focused on Professor Griffin's research about young people's everyday lives and what is important to them. She argued that young people are usually most concerned with fitting in, with where they belong in psychological and social terms - and with having fun.

Art and life in ancient Egypt
Around 1350 BC, the Egyptian grain accountant Nebamun commissioned the walls of his tomb-chapel to be painted with scenes depicting his afterlife, and the world in which he lived.
