Sydney Morning Herald February 10, 2012 page 3
The city of Pavlopetri, underwater off the coast of southern Laconia in Greece, is about 5,000 years old, and is the oldest submerged archeological town site. It is unique in having an almost complete town plan, including streets, buildings, and tombs. It lies on the mainland, directly across the sea, from Kythera.

Photograph - Shot in the dark: two pistols, one encrusted with fragments of wine bottles, were among recovered items.
In 1802, one of the ships charted by Lord Elgin to transport the Parthenon Marbles to England sank off the coast of the southern Peloponnese. Most of its cargo was recovered but a Greek Australian foundation and the Hellenic Ministry of Culture have joined in a new salvage mission they hope will yield vital information about the ship as well as its cargo.

The late Alan Davidson (who sadly died at the end of 2003) had a distinguished career as a writer and publisher of books on food and cookery. His greatest achievement was 'The Oxford Companion to Food' (1999), but this was anticipated by his trio of books on seafood, of which this was the first (published in 1972), as well as studies of the fish cookery of Laos; an edition and translation, with his wife, Jane Davidson, of the 'Grande Dictionaire' of Alexandre Dumas, and even a novel, 'Something Quite ...

Scutigera is a centipede with a compact body fringed with fine, long limbs that resemble eyelashes. This particular example is missing several legs, poor thing. Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004
submitted by Robin Tzannes on 26.10.2004
This shy millipede has a dark, glossy body that stretches and curls along the wall to form amusing shapes, transforming itself from a straight line into a question mark, a half-circle, or an ess-curve, then curling up into a little spiral when disturbed. Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004
The vromopapadia is a harmless millipede whose names translates as 'stinking priest's wife.' That’s because, when prodded, the vromopapadia emits an oily, sickly, lingering stench. In dry weather, the vromopapadia hides outdoors, under leaves and rocks. Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004
Even in death, when its body segments turn into a dry little heap of tiny white hoops, the vromopapadia can put out a repulsive smell. If you find it necessary to remove a vromopapadia, dead or alive, do so gingerly and respectfully. A piece of adhesive tape comes in handy. Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004
The truly terrifying Scolopendra, who slithers around with a sinister, rippling movement on forty legs that all end in needle-sharp spikes. Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004
This small Scolopendra has blue-green legs. Perhaps this coloration is typical of immatures, or maybe this creature belongs to a subspecies of the larger, yellow-legged variety.
Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004
Like all centipedes, the Scolopendra has a painful, poisonous bite. Just look at those jaws! Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2004
The Soil Centipede is a snakelike, red-yellow, eyeless creature that wiggles violently. And he is fast! Photograph by Peter B Tzannes, 2003

In July, the artichoke blossoms open, attracting swarms of rose beetles. The shining emerald beetles against the pale purple flowers has got to be one of Nature's most wonderful color combinations.
