The city of Pompeii uniquely captures the public's imagination - in AD79 a legendary volcanic disaster left its citizens preserved in ashes to this very day. Yet no-one has been able to unravel the full story that is at the heart of our fascination - how did those bodies become frozen in time?For the first time, the BBC has been granted unique access to these strange, ghost-like body casts that populate the ruins and, using the latest forensic te...

“In early times, no spiritual ceremonies would have been performed on the ground. The Pharaoh of Egypt and the Emperor of China were always carried – as the Pope used to be. The feet of holy people were not allowed to touch the ground. We’ve been looking at Stonehenge from a modern, earth-bound perspective.”

“All the great raised altars of the past suggest that the people who built Stonehenge would never have performed celestial ceremonies on the lowly earth,” he went on. “That would have been unimaginably insulting to the immortal beings, for it would have brought them down from heaven to bite the dust and tread in the dung.”

Spalding’s theory has not met with universal approval. Prof Vincent Gaffney, principal investigator on the Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes Project at Bradford University, said he held “a fair degree of scepticism” and Sir Barry Cunliffe, a prehistorian and emeritus professor of European archaeology at Oxford University, said: “He could be right, but I know of no evidence to support it”.


Wiltshire monument may have been the equivalent of an ‘ancient Mecca on stilts’ according to an idea put forward by former museum director Julian Spalding

Chris Boardman says he doesn’t believe any of the three main political parties is providing the kind of top-down leadership on cycling that would transform it into an everyday activity carried out by “normal people in normal clothes.”

Boardman, the former world and Olympic champion turned policy advisor at British Cycling, was speaking to road.cc following a debate hosted by The Times newspaper in its offices at London Bridge.

Chaired by broadcaster John Humphrys, the debate involved Conservative transport minister Robert Goodwill, shadow counterpart Lilian Greenwood of Labour, and Cambridge MP Dr Julian Huppert for the Liberal Democrats.

The small-scale, DIY nature of Izmir’s modular docks won the project a silver medal in our World Cities Day Challenge. But will they float in big bad Istanbul?

I went in two days ago to get some advice prior to viewing a second hand Genesis bike. Oodles of detailed advice and chat about the bike, what to look at, how it might suit me. Very open, very genuine and very enthusiastic. I bought the bike, I love it and I'll be back to this shop for accessories and servicing! Thank you!

First went a few years ago to get tyres following a friend's recommendation, but since have taken two cars here for MOTs and service. Good service, fair prices, timely repairs.

Great, friendly, welcoming local pub with three important qualities. First, if you're quick, it is possible to get off a train and be at the bar before the train doors shut. Second, if you're heading from the station to Frome Road or Trowbridge Road, it's a shorter distance through the inside of the pub past the bar than around the outside of the building. And, third, it's got a pub garden.

Scrupulously clean, great location, friendly accommodating hosts who've thought of everything, and if they haven't they'll do their best to help.
