The Global Heritage Fund has named 2012 "The Year of the Maya," -- the Maya calendar points to December 2012 as the dawn of a new age. La Danta pyramid, at El Mirador in Guatemala, is one of the sites which the Global Heritage Fund is fighting to protect.
The 5,000-year-old Neolithic carvings of concentric circles, interlocking rings and hollowed cups were uncovered as part of a four-year English Heritage-funded initiative, in partnership with Northumberland and Durham County Councils
Little Collingwood Street, Bethnal Green 1900, by John Galt. Galt worked as a missionary for the methodist London City Mission. He took photographs in the East End to illustrate lectures which he gave up and down the country to raise funds for the mission’s work. The photographs were taken primarily to show that those whom the mission sought to help, though poor, were nevertheless worthy of salvation.
