The Egypt Centre, Swansea University Swansea University Egyptology lecturer Dr Ken Griffin has found a depiction of one of the most famous pharaoh’s in history Hatshepsut one of only a handful of female pharaohs on an object in the Egypt Centre stores, which had been chosen for an object handling session. The opportunity to handle genuine Egyptian artefacts is provided by the Egypt Centre to students studying Egyptology at Swansea University. During a recent handling session for an Egyptian Art and Architecture module Dr Kenneth Griffin, from the University’s Department of Classics, Ancient History and Egyptology, noticed that one of the objects chosen was much more interesting than initially thought.
Consisting of two irregularly shaped limestone fragments that have been glued together, the object had been kept in storage for over twenty years and was requested for the handling session based only on an old black and white photograph. The front side depicts the head of a figure whose face is unfortunately missing, with the remains of a fan directly behind.

University chiefs are calling for so-called “essay mills” to be made illegal, amid fears they are undermining the integrity of degree courses. The services, which are illegal in some countries, provide custom essays for students to cheat with. As many as one in seven recent graduates may have cheated by using “essay mills” during the last four years, according to a recent study. Students who get caught face punishment by their university, including possible disqualification, although it is not illegal for a company to offer the service.
The BBC reports that more than 40 vice-chancellors have written to the education secretary calling for those who provide the services, rather than students who use them, to be targeted by new laws. Sam Gyimah said the services could be outlawed. Students work incredibly hard to get a place at university and those who choose to cheat risk throwing it all away, cheating their futures, for the sake of a shortcut. Often the work can be difficult to identify as the essays are tailored for individual subjects and appear original.
A study by Swansea University published in August reviewed questionnaires dating back to where students were asked if they had ever paid for someone else to complete their work.
Researchers who closely monitor the crack cutting across this particular Antarctic ice shelf reported on Thursday that it continued to make rapid progress, expanding another six miles in just the past two weeks. An iceberg the size of Delaware is about to break off Antarctica This means that a collapse may be imminent, at which point, one of the top 10 largest icebergs ever observed will break away into the turbulent seas off the coast of the Antarctic Peninsula.
Scientists affiliated with a group that has been tracking the ice melt in this area, known as Project MIDAS, say the iceberg could measure 5, square kilometers, or 1, square miles. The rift in the Larsen C Ice Shelf, including the 6-mile extension in the past two weeks. Larsen B Ice Shelf prior to the breakup in

Aerodynamics[ edit ] The College of Engineering at Swansea University has been heavily involved in the aerodynamic shape of the vehicle from the start. Professor Oubay Hassan, Professor Ken Morgan their team have used Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD   to provide an understanding of the aerodynamic characteristics of the proposed shape, at all speeds, including predicting the likely vertical, lateral and drag forces on the vehicle and its pitch and yaw stability.
It was this involvement with the previous land speed record that prompted Richard Noble to approach Swansea in April for their help with this latest challenge. Swansea University’s School of the Environment and Society was also enlisted to help determine a new test site for the record as the test site for the ThrustSSC record attempt has become unsuitable. A third engine, a Jaguar supercharged V-8 , will be used as an auxiliary power unit and to drive the oxidizer pump for the rocket.
Publicly disclosed tests were conducted in  and   including a run at Newquay Airport in GB. And although this demonstration was deemed a success at the time, it became clear that considerable sums of money and time would be needed to perfect the design. In order to accelerate the car to mph, the monopropellant rocket will produce around 40kN lbf of thrust and the EJ jet engine will make 90kN 20, lbf in reheat.
For the 1, mph runs, the Nammo hybrid rockets will provide a thrust of

In an extraordinary career spanning six decades, Roy has maintained his belief in cybernetic theory and its continuing relevance to contemporary life. It also informed his revolutionary ‘Groundcourse’, an art foundation course that incorporated cybernetics, behaviourism and play. Roy has been at the vanguard of art using technology during his career, but this use of technology is not the defining feature of his practice.
Rather, it is his sustained interest in the field of human communication that led him to explore the potential of new technologies. Technology, Roy argues, is the product of desire; it is there to fulfil a human drive. In this conversation with Kate Sloan , Roy will discuss his early work in relation to the living, communicative and biological identity of early cybernetics, concentrating on his education and early years, pursuing the interrelationships between cybernetics, biology and sculptural form.

January The principal method for determining the age of historic buildings and wooden artefacts in the UK is dendrochronology tree-ring dating. Across Wales however, conventional dendrochronology often fails to yield a robust date owing to the presence of complacent ring width sequences or the use of short-lived or fast-growing timbers in construction. As a result, it is impossible to assign a precise calendar age to structures of high historic or cultural importance.
This project will aim to assess the suitability of a new precision dating technique developed by the Swansea team to provide calendar dates for houses, living trees and timbers sourced from across Wales. This will help to ascertain the geographic and practical limits of the stable oxygen isotope method for the dating of historic timbers. This project will provide important proof of concept for dating houses in this region and will also inform decision-making in the listing, management and preservation process.
