The project explores how prehistoric people dressed and expressed creativity and identity through pottery, metalwork and textiles during the period 1800-500 BC. University of Southampton archaeologist Dr Jo Sofaer, who is leading CinBA, says:  “I’m interested in finding out what drove Bronze Age people to make the leap from clothing which was purely functional – to using clothes, along with metalwork and accessories, as a form of expression.

The ‘choosy uterus’: new insight into why embryos do not implant.  Led by Nick Macklon, Professor of Gynaecology and Obstetrics at the University of Southampton and Professor Jan Brosens at the University of Warwick, the research has shown that if the embryo quality is poor, the endometrium will subdue a large number of the genes involved in determining whether the embryo is accepted.

Fertility experts at the University of Southampton and University of Warwick have found new insights into why some fertilized eggs can embed in a uterus and why some do not.

A University of Southampton researcher is helping to track an iceberg the size of Manhattan, which has recently broken off the Pine Island Glacier in Antarctica and could threaten shipping lanes in the Southern Ocean.  The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has just agreed to fund an urgency grant that will let researchers track and predict the iceberg's path, preventing it from becoming a maritime hazard: University of Southampton press release

5D ‘Superman memory’ crystal could lead to unlimited lifetime data storage.  Using nanostructured glass, scientists at the University of Southampton have, for the first time, experimentally demonstrated the recording and retrieval processes of five dimensional digital data by femtosecond laser writing. The storage allows unprecedented parameters including 360 TB/disc data capacity, thermal stability up to 1000°C and practically unlimited lifetime.
