New Technique Reveals Centuries of Secrets in Locked Letters

M.I.T. researchers have devised a virtual-reality technique that lets them read old letters that were mailed not in envelopes but in the writing paper itself after being folded into elaborate enclosures. From a report: In 1587, hours before her beheading, Mary, Queen of Scots, sent a letter to her brother-in-law Henry III, King of France. But she didn't just sign it and send it off. She folded the paper repeatedly, cut out a piece of the page and left it dangling. She used that strand of paper t...

Ruins with a view: plan to turn Scottish castles into enchanting hotels

SNP hopes to emulate Spain’s lucrative paradores in a drive to boost jobs, tourism and heritage preservationJust outside Stonehaven in Aberdeenshire, on the side of a steep cliff overlooking the North Sea, sits Dunnottar castle.

Lamb’s House: A Masterful Restoration of a 17th Century Home (Once Visited by Mary Queen of Scots)

Here are the CliffsNotes version of what you need to know about Lamb’s House, located in Edinburgh’s port of Leith: The home was built in 1610 for a wealthy merchant (Andrew Lamb); Mary Queen of Scots was rumored to have once been a guest there; its restoration more than 400 years later by Groves-Raines Architects has won a load of awards. While those facts communicate the importance of the building, they don’t convey its soul, which had nearly perished due to neglect over the centuries before b...

Stacked-Up Book Thoughts: Late Summer Reading

Happy Monday! It's been a while since I wrote a review post, so this is going to be long on books, but not necessarily long on words. Despite feeling overworked, I've still found time to make a dent in my reading list. Even though it's September, I'm still reading summer books, though I just started listening to the new fall Elin Hiderbrand book. I couldn't wait any longer to read the next installment in her St. Johns trilogy. We watched the movie Mary, Queen of Scots on HBO this past weeke...

Royal family residences in the UK

There’s a lot to keep track of in the British royal family.

The Biggest Beauty Moments You Didn't See At The Oscars

Despite all the drama that ensued prior to this year's 91st Academy Awards, the show did go on — and how. Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga almost made out (that's what happened, right?), Rami Malek professed his love for Queen and Lucy Boynton (then promptly fell off the stage), and Spike Lee won his first Oscar (not counting the honorary statue he received in 2016). Overall, the night end up being something special... or, at the very least, something worth tweeting about.But that only accounts for...
