These winds deposit sand in coppice dunes that are critical habitat for several species, including the state and federally listed threatened species Uma inornata, a lizard. Although wind directions are generally defined in this valley, the wind field has complex interactions with local topography and becomes more variable with distance from the pass. Local, dominant wind directions are preserved by growth patterns of Larrea tridentata creosote bush , a shrub characteristic of the hot North American deserts, and ventifacts. Exceptionally long-lived, Larrea has the potential to preserve wind direction over centuries to millennia, shaped by the abrasive pruning of windward branches and the persistent training of leeward branches. Wind direction preserved in Larrea individuals and clones was mapped at locations. Compared with wind data from three weather stations, Larrea vectors effectively reflect annual prevailing winds. Based on detailed mapping of local wind directions as preserved in Larrea, only the northern half of the Mission-Morongo Creek floodplain is likely to supply sand to protected U.

In our creative writing session at the National Library we focused on writing heroes and villains and the work produced was truly extraordinary. The next day the grand final took place at St Kents and it was a nail biter right down to the wire as the Australians who were in Ninth place at the end of the first half surged back to win it!
Then on to the grand gala dinner that night where representatives from each team talked about their favourite books — such a great night! A huge thanks to the Wright Family Foundation and Wayne Mills and his team Julie, and Gerri, who make this such a fantastic world-wide event! Workshopping heroes and villains at the National Library Sep It is always so exciting to be able to finally hold a copy of my new book in my hands.

Oct This is Moby the Ohaupo School cat who greeted me in the staff room when I arrived with a baby rabbit in her mouth that she had just caught!

Information provided by the Brecon Castle Hotel web site. The Brecon Beacons and the Brecon area have a long history of human habitation. Early settlements were mainly on the hill tops as the valleys would have been regularly flooded and covered in dense forest. Evidence has been found of the manufacture of flint tools on the castle site, dating back to years.
North West of the hotel is the remains of Pen-y-crug, an Iron Age hill fort. It may well have been occupied when the Romans arrived – Two miles to the west of Brecon lies Y-Gaer. The first regiment in occupation probably came from North West Spain. Brecon was a Roman cross-roads and some roman roads remain visible on the Beacons even today. In the fifth Century the local ruler is said to have sent his daughter to Ireland in search of a husband. Many of her retinue of guards died on the journey.
She found her Irish Prince their son, Brychan, was sent to Wales to grow up at the Court of his grandfather. It is from the name ‘Brychan’ that the old country name of Brysheiniog and later ‘Brecon’ was derived. One of his daughters, called Tudful was killed by Barbarians.

As always the catalogue produced in this season is packed with reviews of the previous year and this year is no exception. For steam reviews we have: How’s that for a choice! Of course, a new year means two new guide books and I’m pleased to announce that both the London Underground and UK Light Rail guides are back, fully updated and hot off the press in March.

This is the largest map of its kind to have survived in tact and in good condition from such an early period of cartography. It has been preserved in the Hereford Cathedral England for almost years, and, besides its antiquity, it is notable for the quality of its workmanship and for the variety of the drawings that adorn it. For this map the entire skin of a calf had to be properly treated to make writing and coloring possible.
Calfskin prepared in this manner is called vellum from the Latin word vitulus, a calf. The vellum, measuring 1. There is a reference unusual for any medieval map to its authorship, in a note in the bottom left-hand corner in translation: Let all who have this history, Or shall hear or read or see it, Pray to Jesus in His Divinity, To have pity on Richard of Haldingham and Lafford, Who has made and planned it, To whom joy in heaven be granted.
These place names are in Lincolnshire Holdingham and Sleaford are the modern forms , and this Richard has been identified as one Richard de Bello, prebend of Lafford in Lincoln Cathedral about the year , who later became an official of the Bishop of Hereford, and in was appointed prebend of Norton in Hereford Cathedral. Nothing certain is known of his activities after , and it is probable that he died soon after , bequeathing his map to the cathedral.
While the map was compiled in England, names and descriptions were written in Latin, with the Norman dialect of old French used for special entries. The circle of the world is set in a somewhat rectangular frame background with a pointed top, and an ornamented border of a zig-zag pattern often found in psalter-maps of the period At the head of the frame is a representation of the Day of Judgment, with the figure of Christ displaying the scars of His crucifixion in the center.
Standing on the right of Christ an angel holds a cross in one hand and three nails in the other.
