This image, modified from John Speed's map of Yorkshire, shows the walled city of York -- the site of the brilliant annual spectacle known to its medieval performers and spectators as the "Corpus Christi Play". Dozens of short plays, mounted on pageant wagons, began with a performance at the Trinity Priory (red dot, lower left) and moved through the city streets, stopping at pre-arranged performance locations known as stations (white dots).

The Electronic Small World Project seeks to map the social connections among people using email. Using the tools of social network analysis, we hope to construct the first images of the social topography (as opposed to the technical or physical topography) of the Internet. This social map will help us understand how information moves through society, how different types of people are connected, and how small the social world in which we live really is.

The Domain Archaea wasn't recognized as a major domain of life until quite recently. Until the 20th century, most biologists considered all living things to be classifiable as either a plant or an animal. But in the 1950s and 1960s, most biologists came to the realization that this system failed to accomodate the fungi, protists, and bacteria. By the 1970s, a system of Five Kingdoms had come to be accepted as the model by which all living things could be classified. At a more fundamental level, a distinction was made between the prokaryotic bacteria and the four eukaryotic kingdoms (plants, animals, fungi, & protists). The distinction recognizes the common traits that eukaryotic organisms share, such as nuclei, cytoskeletons, and internal membranes. The scientific community was understandably shocked in the late 1970s by the discovery of an entirely new group of organisms -- the Archaea. Archaea

Felix Lindsey, Wichita Falls negro, had the dubious honor of being singled out by Geronimo on one occasion. Felix, who is ninety years old, clearly remembers the meeting, which occurred in 1886. This was shortly before Geronimo surrendered to Gen. Nelson A. Miles. Felix recalled this meeting. "I wasn't as dark as I am now, but kind of red like, and when Geronimo saw me he said, 'You ain't no nigger, you're an Indian.' "'My father may have been an Indian, but I'm a nigger because that's the race of my mother and the race I chose,' I said. Felix Lindsey narrative Aframerindian Slave Narratives index

January 24, 1917: In the small churchyard in Rennes-le-Chateau a few people stand watching silently as the coffin of Berenger Sauniere is lowered into his grave. Of these people, how many truly know the secret which this charismatic priest is taking with him in death? This question did not interest anyone very much for the first 50 years after the burial. The story reappeared in the 1960s and awoke the curiosity of many. From then on the phenomenon only increased, and led to the writing of many books (some more reliable than others), but unfortunately no solution has ever been found to explain the mystery of Sauniere's sudden wealth Rennes le Chateau, The mystery

It is, I suppose, common knowledge that Gutenberg's printing press stands as the most intellectually fertile device ever produced by an identifiable person. Its spawn include common knowledge itself, and the modern idea of fame, the type of celebrity that places its inventor on a par with Aristotle, Caesar, Leonardo, Shakespeare, Darwin and Edison. So it does seem remarkably perverse that proven facts about this cultural superhero are scarce enough to fit into a few bare lines of print. [Gutenberg]

HORSHAM - The battle for racial equality in America has been going on for centuries. Some of the warriors who fought for it while simultaneously combating Germans in the skies over Europe gathered to mark Martin Luther King Day at the Willow Grove Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base. The men of the 332nd Fighter Group, popularly known as the Tuskegee Airmen, faced a tremendous challenge just getting into the U.S. Army Air Corps in World War II, said Luther Smith, who flew 133 combat missions with the unit before being shot down over Germany and captured.

Richard Wolin is an intellectual historian with a remarkable gift for upsetting people. His {Richard Wolin] work has annoyed postmodernists, outraged Heideggerians, infuriated scholars of Hannah Arendt, and provoked Jacques Derrida himself into faxing lengthy denunciations and threats of legal action. Such notoriety has its uses: In 2000, after 16 years at Rice University, Mr. Wolin became a distinguished professor of history at the City University of New York's Graduate School and University Center.
