Mary Seacole was a Jamaican nurse who risked her own life to treat the wounded in the Crimean War. As Mary was black, Florence Nightingale turned her away several times, so she set up her own 'British Hotel'  and worked round the clock to nurse the soldiers.  Often she would go out into the field to treat them too.  A remarkable woman who is, at last, getting some recognition for her hard and dangerous work.

Prehistoric spiral carving, Cornwall, England. Labyrinths and mazes have a history that can be traced back over 4000 years. The earliest examples are found carved on rocks in various parts of the world. Labyrinths have been a potent symbol in many cultures for thousands of years but mazes are of more recent origin, evolving from the earlier labyrinths around five hundred years ago
