John’s Vikings get the spotlight in BBC documentary

first_imgHuman remains of Vikings discovered under St John’s, thought to have been violently killed in a campaign of ethnic cleansing, will feature in the BBC TV series “Digging for Britain” later this year.As reported by Cherwell last Michaelmas, up to 38 young male bodies were found in 2008 by builders who were laying the foundations for the recently opened Kendrew Quadrangle.Now 360 Production, who are to produce “Digging for Britain”, have announced that they will put the spotlight on Oxford in the second episode of a four-part series to be aired in early September.Titled ‘Invaders’, it will include a segment focusing on the archaeological findings under John’s, and include an interview with Ceri Falys, the osteoarchaeologist leading the research project.An assistant producer of Digging for Britain told Cherwell that the site is crucial, saying, “it is the best evidence archaeology has to offer so far to show that the St Brices Day Massacre (described in various historical sources) actually happened.’ Archaeology and Anthropology students at John’s seem keen on the attention the site is receiving. “[The burial site] reminds us that when we talk about the past, we are talking not only about events but also people and the lives they led as individuals”, said second-year Gideon Freud.Second-year Roberta Allport pointed out that the find offers us a chance to see, free from human bias, the “true scope and implications” of the massacre.last_img read more

Bourda Market vendor shot dead during robbery

first_imgA cheese and sausage vendor at Bourda Market was on Wednesday evening shot and killed by three armed men who relieved him of his cash, a quantity of jewellery and other valuables.Dead is 45-year-old Troy Ramalho, called “Rasta”, of Albouystown, Georgetown and of Lot 11 North Road, Lacytown, Georgetown.Based on reports, the vendor had already packed up his stall which is located between Alexander and Bourda Streets and was awaiting transportation to take him home.It was during this time he was confronted by three gun-toting bandits who held him at gunpoint and demanded that he hand over cash and other valuables.Speaking with Guyana Times, the dead’s man wife, Precious Ramalho, explainedTroy Ramalho, called “Rasta” in happier timesthat her husband refused to comply with the bandits’ demands and in retaliation, one of the armed men discharged a round hitting the vendor once to his chest.As he fell to the ground, she noted that the other two men relieved her husband of three gold chains that were wrapped around his arm.In addition, the perpetrators took away the man’s cellphone along with three gold rings before making good their escape on foot.“After they come and ask him to hand over his gold and money he started talking up and he took the table that was in front of him and hit one ah dem with it. After that one of them was going away and the one with the gun turn and tell him boy do what you have to do and he took the gun and put it to his heart and pull the trigger,” the wife stated.More so, she related that the incident happened right before the eyes of two on-duty City Constables.“When this thing happened, the market Constable was there but couldn’t do any but to watch the bandits walk out of the market and head towards Camp Street. They couldn’t do anything; they don’t have a gun, all this happen in front of everybody,” the woman recalled.She noted that the father of two would normally say to her “anybody coming to take my things (jewellery) would have to kill me before they get it, me ain’t giving up my things just suh”.The vendor was picked up in an unconscious state and rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he died while receiving medical attention.Closed-circuit television (CCTV) footage was reviewed and the Police are currently hunting the suspects.
