In 1975, the European Year of Protection of Ancient Monuments, Alsfeld in Upper Hesse acquired model-town status, along with Berlin, Rothenburg ob der Tauber, Xanten and Trier in Germany. In this way the Council of Europe was acknowledging the long tradition of monument protection in a place where an astonishingly large number of historic buildings have survived. There are numerous tightly-packed timber-frame buildings in the medieval ground plan of the town, some built as long ago as the 14th century. The market-place, forming the centre of the town with town hall, Weinhaus (wine house) and Hochzeitshaus (wedding house), is one of the most important complexes of its kind in Germany. The town hall, built in a way that inspired many of its German successors, was to have been pulled down in 1878 by order of the town council. It was not until residents protested that preservation and restoration of what is now the symbol of the town were assured, providing the first example of Alsfeld's tradition in this field. Even today ensembles of unique unity are to be found in its main streets. There is almost nowhere else where one can form such a good impression of a small German medieval town than here. Hesse's Department for the Protection of Monuments was quick to recognize the town's value in terms of architectural history. Art historian Werner Meyer-Barkhausen recorded the historic building stock in the "Alte Stadte" in "Hessen" series as early as 1927. The present volume does not intend to show Alsfeld just as a "timber-frame museum"; an attempt has also been made to show how a town of this kind has changed in the upheavals of the past 100 years by juxtaposing Uwe Rudenburg's photographs with pictures produced around 1880 by Ludwig Bickell, Hesse's first Provincial Conservator. 60pp.

EX LIBRARY.One library stamp,adhesive label to base of spine and front cover.This book examines ways in which beliefs and values interact with science and science teaching. It looks at some of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural contexts within which science has developed and considers how these factors can affect the choice of scientific theory. Various historical sections provide resource material for showing pupils the role of the history of science in the study of science. Interactions between science and religious belief are also analysed to clarify the nature, strengths and limitations of science as well as its place in the total curriculum.

Edited By McGrath, Carmelita; Neis, Barbara and Porter, Marilyn
This anthology presents the most comprehensive collection to date focusing on the lives and experiences of women in Newfoundland and Labrador. From early settlement to late twentieth century life, from working "on the flakes" to the cod moratorium, from the development of women's organizations to political struggle and protest, "Their Lives and Times" examines the cultural, social and historical presence of women in Newfoundland and Labrador. "Their Lives and Times" brings together in one place a lively mix of perspectives, including previously published work and new research, literary and scholarly work. It will be equally at home in an academic setting or on the bookshelf of any reader interested in the diversity of women's experiences and the ways in which these experiences have been explored in new research and literature. 354pp. N.B.
