Many of these images are of a type that we may feel we know at first glance.

In this edition we follow Robert Taylor Pritchett to India to try and work out why he created the watercolour Ayahs with their Charges in the way that he did.

Rare Find of Boxed Enfield Rifles Rare crate of Civil War rifles yields picture of daring Civil War blockade runners The carefully constructed box of British-made rifles was intended for the hands of Confederate soldiers. A century and a half later, after a failed blockade run, a fire and years resting in the sandy bottom of Charleston Harbor, the weathered container and its contents are instead a time capsule in the hands of conservators and archaeologists.
The rifles are in large aquarium of filtered freshwater that is drawing out salt and other contaminants. Only three intact cases of the single-shot weapon are known, according to a Atlanta Journal-Constitution article. Researchers also found a bullet mold, tools and tampions, or cork and brass plugs inserted into the muzzle to ward off moisture.
An archaeological diver pulled up the crate from the South Carolina shipwreck in the late s. Each weapon weighed about 9 pounds and was approximately 53 inches long. The South Carolina institute did conserve smaller items, but donated the rifle crate to Georgia for extensive conservation treatment and display. A powerful industrial X-ray machine was unable to provide more than faint images through the packed sediment, which Headlee likened to concrete.
Most of the wooden crate is gone, but a lining made of tin and lead remains. One end of the crate was damaged, apparently when the CSS Stono sank. After the level of sodium chloride is stabilized, officials will consider longer-term conservation techniques.

The total production of barrels was in the 77, range. There are also certain M91 barrels that have a B proof where normally the manufactures proof would be found.

The series of conflicts we now call the Irish Revolution raged from to They included a number of discrete episodes with different combatants arrayed against each other in each. The period was a political as much as military contest but it did see , people lose their lives in armed conflict.
