Artifacts Are Emerging From Melting Alpine Glaciers

‘An Archaeological Emergency’: Artifacts Are Emerging From Melting Alpine Glaciers The group climbed the steep mountainside, clambering across an Alpine glacier, before finding what they were seeking: A crystal vein filled with the precious rocks needed to sculpt their tools. That is what archaeologists have deduced after the discovery of traces of an ancient hunt for crystals by hunters and gatherers in the Mesolithic era, some 9,500 years ago. It is one of many valuable archaeological sites to emerge in recent decades from rapidly melting glacier ice, sparking a brand-new field of research: glacier archaeology. Amid surging temperatures, glaciologists predict that 95 percent of the some 4,000 glaciers dotted throughout the Alps could disappear by the end of this century. While archaeologists lament the devastating toll of climate change, many acknowledge it has created “an opportunity” to dramatically expand understanding of mountain life millennia ago. “We are making very fascinating finds […]

Killing of White Farmer Becomes a Flash Point in S.Africa

Tensions as suspects in S.Africa white farmer murder appear in court Outside a court hearing for two Black suspects in a murder case, white Afrikaners nostalgic for the apartheid era and Black protesters angry that whites still own most farmland squared off. SENEKAL, South Africa — A young white farm manager was found earlier this month strangled and tied to a pole on a farm in the eastern part of the Free State province, police said. Two Black men were accused of the murder. At a packed court hearing on Friday, the police captain investigating the case said that the suspects were part of a ring of livestock thieves operating in the area, and that it appeared that the motive was robbery rather than racial animus. But the killing of the farm manager, Brendin Horner, has become the latest flash point for racial conflict in South Africa, where the segregationist […]

The rise and fall of Ajax Cape Town

The club’s formation was a visionary move, marrying South Africa’s talent with the resources and knowledge of the Netherlands. So how did it all go so horribly wrong? Ajax Amsterdam’s investment in South Africa in the late 1990s was the first deal of its kind in the world. It was supposed to herald a new era of opportunity for players on the African continent, as a direct route to Europe. But to say the results over the past 21 years have been underwhelming would be an understatement. The Dutch club gave a damning indictment of the South African game when it pulled the plug on its failed Cape Town project.  It would be unfair to lay the blame entirely on Ajax Cape Town, according to South African founder Rob Moore, who says the Amsterdam club could have done more. Moore’s unique and visionary blueprint for a global football brand has […]
