However, it seems that earlier in his reign Edward had also promised the throne to his cousin, William, who ruled the Duchy of Normandy across the English Channel. When Edward died and Harold assumed the role of king, William chose to fight for the crown. At the Battle of Hastings, which took place in October 1066, Harold was defeated. William was crowned two months later, on Christmas Day, in Westminster Abbey. Later, as an act of penance for the bloodshed caused by his conquest of England, William built Battle Abbey on the site of the Battle of Hastings in East Sussex. In this Expedition, we’ll explore both the battlefield and what remains of the abbey.

Her family’s home, Clear Comfort, now the museum, shaped Alice Austen’s experiences, served as her first studio space and darkroom, and opened up to her a world of subjects beyond her comfortable, upper-middle class suburban existence.

Baghdad, IraqAfter the destruction heaped upon archaeological sites by the Islamic State group, the collections at the National Museum of Iraq in Baghdad have taken on greater significance. It's now one of the only places you can find relics from the ancient cities that fell into the extremists' hands. As many as 4,000 archaeological sites are still under the domination of the Islamic State group and around 100 sites have been destroyed, according to Iraqi Culture Minister Firyad Rwandzi. The sites in their grip show the multiple civilizations that rose and fell during Iraq's long history, ranging from mosques, churches and small shrines to large sites of old cities. Fortunately, some of the artifacts from the sites in northern Iraq had been moved long ago to the National Museum.

Museum collections have three broad functions: they are used for education, research and as a permanent store for specimens of great historical and scientific importance. These include specimens of extinct species, as well as “type specimens” – the first specimen used to describe and name a new species. The collections provide a reference to the fauna, geology and cultural heritage of Australia and the region.

BhutanThe Kingdom of Bhutan is the only country in the world in which Vajrayana Buddhism is the state religion. Buddhist practice and scholarship is focused in 8 major monasteries and approximately 200 smaller monasteries and nunneries, where over 12,000 monks and 5,000 nuns in training meditate, chant, study, and work under the guidance and tutelage of ordained monks and nuns, and lay monks called gomchen. In this Expedition, we’ll visit a small monastery in central Bhutan that has been active for over 500 years.
