    The author thanks the Universities of St Andrews and London, the Economic and Social Research Council, the Horniman and Swan Funds, and also the Carnegie Trust. The Pygmy mimic is an extremely persistent colonial trope that continues to inform contemporary anthropological understandings of Africa’s Pygmy populations. Mimicry is now understood as being a key component of the social reproduction of a distinct Pygmy way of being. In this paper I examine the historical accounts of mimicry and try to bring a historical perspective to bear on contemporary ethnographic accounts of its practice. I also set my own research among the Sua Pygmies of Uganda against these other examples. The intention behind this is to acknowledge the common humanity of Africa’s Pygmies and to create new grounds of comparison - such as a shared history of oppression - that are not dependent on a unique foraging mode of thought.

    A rich algal assemblage at the Kozica locality, in the northern foothills of Mt. Biokovo, contains, among other forms, Praturlonella salernitana BARATTOLO. In addition, the descriptions of Clypeina bucuri BARATTOLO & ROMANO and C. lucana BARATTOLO & ROMANO are updated, and the originally described Clypeina teakolarae RADOIČIĆ et al., has been tentatively transferred to the genus Falsolikanella GRANIER; hence Falsolikanella? teakolarae n. comb. Falsolikanella? macropora n. sp. is described, characterized by probable metaspondyle growth of clearly phloiophorous branches, differentiated individually into a narrow stalk and very long, markedly widened, outer part. Based on the algal assemblage as a whole, together with benthic and planktonic foraminifers, the stratigraphic position of the algal-bearing level has been defined as Ypresian (lowermost Eocene).

    Digital tools offer new dimensions and additional contexts both in teaching and in researching Petrarch’s Rerum vulgarium fragmenta, providing users with visual insights into his carefully planned work. This essay investigates interactive and visual representations of material and spatial systems of the Fragmenta and the deep interaction between the digital code created to build the Petrarchive’s visual indexes and the original Medieval forms.

    Oral history may enhance students’ historical content knowledge, historical reasoning competencies, and motivation to learn history. However, little is known regarding the role of oral history in Dutch history education. This study therefore explores the role of oral history in Dutch history education. We developed student and teacher questionnaires to examine secondary school students’ views (n= 280) and history teachers’ views (n=40) on the role of oral history in Dutch history education. In addition, we conducted interviews with three educational experts on the role of oral history in Dutch history education. The results showed that most students, teachers and experts believe that working with oral history is interesting, motivating, and may contribute to significant insights into the past. However, our results indicate that oral history plays only a marginal role in the teaching and learning of history in the Netherlands. Our study may be used by history teachers to implement oral history in their curricula and help teachers develop meaningful oral history tasks.

    The Rosia Montana Project represents a responsible mining project in progress in the Apuseni Mountains, Romania. It is the first mining project developed in Romania according to up-to-date Romanian and international (EU) standards. Besides specific geological and mining aspects, the Project comprises various other aspects concerning the culture and the community. The present paper presents the cultural heritage of Rosia Montana in the framework of the new mining development proposed by Rosia Montana Gold Corporation.
