  15. La Grava: the archaeology and history of a royal manor and alien priory of Fonteveault [Council for British Archaeology, York, 2013]

    Lewis, Carenza
    This publication presents the results of the excavation of La Grava (also known as Grove Priory) in Bedfordshire, conducted in advance of quarrying. Described as ‘perhaps the largest and most complete excavation of a north-west European medieval manorial site in the twentieth century’ (p. 354), this report might be considered a worthy addition to any medievalist’s library for this reason alone. But it also an intensely interesting site, not least because it is so unusual: a manorial site converted to monastic use (and back again, both in the medieval period), using an atypical non-claustral plan, housing the only male establishment...

  16. Retention of early career registered nurses: the influence of self-concept, practice environment and resilience in the first five years post-graduation

    Mckinnon, John
    The topic of retention in nursing is never far from any healthcare professional forum of discussion. Factors which promote or inhibit a positive practice environment together with issues of self-awareness and professional resilience are of profound interest to all of us broadly associated with nursing and its future. So it is refreshing to read a paper that considers not just one but all of these influential areas. The findings are interesting and informative. However, it is important to remember that they arise from a cross-sectional study in which four separate groups of nurses responded within the same time frame. This is...

  18. Victims of Ireland’s Great Famine: the bioarchaeology of mass burials at Kilkenny Union Workhouse

    Fennelly, Katherine
    In the last 20 years, power, control and resistance have emerged as popular themes in archaeological approaches to the modern period. Institutions like workhouses and industrial complexes have been well studied through a Marxist-inspired lens, and archaeologists have written about power relationships and hierarchies, domination and resistance and subaltern narratives. Jonny Geber’s bioarchaeology of the Irish Famine and Sarah Cowie’s intensive study of a former industrial settlement in Michigan contribute appreciably to this wider literature, and each situate themselves clearly within these narratives of power and resistance in historical archaeology. Accessible to scholars of the nineteenth century outside of archaeology,...

  19. Facilitating spiritual reminiscence for people with dementia: a learning guide

    Mathews, Ian
    Facilitating Spiritual Reminiscence for People with Dementia. A Learning Guide E. MacKinlay and C. Trevitt London: Jessica Kingsley, 2015 110 pp. £22.99 (pb), ISBN: 9781849055734 According to the introduction, this thought-provoking and usable guide written by two experienced and well-regarded Australian practitioners, aims to promote reminiscence as a way of communicating that acknowledges the person as a spiritual being and seeks to engage the person in a more meaningful and personal way. As can be seen from this initial assertion, this guide is based on a range of contested assumptions not least the nature of spirituality and the role that spiritual understandings play in understanding life,...

  20. Mindfulness in positive psychology: the science of meditation and wellbeing [Itai Ivtzan and Tim Lomas (eds.): Routledge, London, UK, 2016, 348]

    Bretherton, Roger
    This publication is the latest volume to bring together two prominent themes in contemporary psychological science: mindfulness and positive psychology. The editors, Ivtzan and Lomas 2016, based at the University of East London, are well versed in both. Over the last 10 years, the group of academics associated with the London-based Masters in Applied Positive Psychology have maintained a relentless output of publication. Their expanding list of authored and edited volumes, which now amounts to a small library of leading texts, is governed by two complementary intentions: to disseminate positive psychology through introductory textbooks (Hefferon and Boniwell 2011; Lomas et...
