Chicago: A Shopper's Guide

By Helen Brown

Nobody wants to be seen as materialistic and shallow, right? So before I start writing a materialistic and shallow story about shopping in Chicago, I feel the need to point out that this is a city that has it all -- galleries, museums, shows, fascinating tours, nightlife, culture, history, everything the discerning traveller might be looking for. Serious things. Important things. But this is all about shopping.

AUTUMN IS A TIME OF FABULOUS FESTIVALS IN HONG KONG

By Karisa Lui

"May we live long and share the beauty of the moon together, even if we are hundreds of miles apart," says a romantic Chinese poem, well known in Hong Kong. Yes, here in Canada we are indeed hundreds of miles from Hong Kong, but why not travel those many miles between us on a trip of a lifetime and be in Hong Kong for its special Mid-Autumn Festival this year, or for one of its culinary festivals later in the season? They are always unforgettable events.

Life in Bronze Age Britain

By Historic England

Archaeologists excavating at least five 3,000 year old circular wooden houses on stilts in the East Anglian fens have pieced together the daily lives of a Late Bronze Age (1000 - 800BC) community through a number of extraordinary finds. The 10 month excavation, which is now coming to an end, has revealed how Bronze Age houses were constructed, what household goods they had, what they ate and how their clothes were made.
The specialist team working at the site, known as 'Must Farm' at Whittlesey in Cambridgeshire have uncovered the finest collection of Bronze Age fabrics and one of the largest collections of Bronze Age glass ever found in Britain.
