    Musician Darren Hayman has created this website to document his ‘project about rural life’ in which he visits every one of the 54 Thankful Vilages in England and Wales . A Thankful or Blessed Village, is the name given by writer and educator Arthur Mee to a settlement where every soldier returned alive from the First World War. The films, music and text on the site rarely refer directly to the Great War itself: Hayman’s project is more a way of exploring aspects of life in small rural communities and documenting his own responses to his journey through the music he makes - written and recorded in each village as he travels the country.

    Gastropod looks at food from the perspective of science and history. The podcast is nicely designed and is produced and presented by Cynthia Graber and Nicola Twilley, who are both journalists with an academic background in the sciences. Witty and stimulating in equal measure and with an archive going back to 2014, there are two episodes a month, each one a mixture of short items and longer in-depth reports. Episodes have covered caffeine, fungi, alcohol consumption, the calorie as a unit of energy and snails. Each podcast comes with notes, and is often accompanied by stills and short videos. The podcasts are available on Soundcloud, iTunes and as RSS feeds.

    A series of engaging, lively videos produced for the Royal Society.

Among the objects uncovered are Captain Cook’s quadrant, the letters of H.G. Wells, a very powerful 18th century magnet and some very expensive 19th century photographs.
