My metal detector gave a loud signal as I swept its coil over the freshly cleared earth. I had just dug up several Civil War bullets a few feet away, but this signal sounded different. It was louder, and registered much higher on my detector's meter than the bullets. Perhaps, I thought, I was about to dig up a Civil War belt buckle? Finding a Civil War buckle is always at the top of my wish list when relic hunting. The year was 1992 and I was scanning a construction site in Centreville, Virginia, which was a busy crossroads during the Civil War. The Battles of First and Second Bull Run, and the Battle of Blackburn's Ford were fought nearby. I was part of small group of "diggers" that chased the bulldozers around Northern Virginia, trying to salvage Civil War artifacts at construction sites before the topsoil was stripped away and the relics lost forever, buried under roads and housing developments.

Evening Standard editor and former Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne has said the influence of the press in Britain’s decision to leave the European Union has been “overstated”.

Stan Honda/AFP/Getty Images It has been a long, long time since New York City's newsstands have been bereft of copies of The Forward. Founded as a Yiddish-language daily in 1897, the newspaper once known as The Jewish Daily Forward endured a host of major changes over its long lifespan — but through them all, the small publication reliably went to press with news that its predominantly American Jewish audience often couldn't find elsewhere. But that will change come springtime. The paper announced Thursday that it is ending its print operation in order to "become a digitally focused publisher," … [Read more...] about ‘The Forward,’ Storied Jewish Paper, Shutters Print Edition After 121 Years
