Buried alive: Aquatic plants survive in ‘ghost ponds’ under agricultural fields
Aquatic plants in ‘ghost ponds' are able to survive more than 100 years buried beneath cropped agricultural fields, according to new UCL research. Ghost ponds are abundant across many agricultural regions, often visible as damp depressions, areas of poor crop cover, or changes in soil colour. Many UK ponds were filled-in during agricultural land intensification that took place after the 1950s.

Fear of crime is contagious, even in low crime communities
Fear of crime is perpetuated by the opinion of others, and often doesn't correlate to the actual likelihood of experiencing crime, according to new UCL research. The findings of the study, published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A , help to explain how a generalised fear of crime exists in cities and countries in which crime rates are low.† ‘The fear of crime can be considered contagious, because social interaction is the mechanism through which fear is shared and chronically worried populations are created.

St Columba‘s Iona ’hut? radiocarbon dated
Archaeologists from the University of Glasgow have uncovered conclusive radiocarbon evidence of a wooden hut on Iona dating back to the late 6 th Century AD, believed to be that of St Columba when he worked at the monastery. Radiocarbon tests show samples of charcoaled hazel unearthed from a site excavation 60 years ago, where it is believed Columba's wooden hut was situated, date back to the exact period it is claimed Columba lived and worked at the monastery.
