Each type of animal on Earth has evolved a range of senses and skills which allow it to live successfully in its environment. Many of these adaptations are very different from how humans have evolved, and compared to humans some of these adaptations feel like they belong in a superhero comic. Senses such as ultraviolet vision, extra color receptors, and echolocation are very hard for humans to imagine, yet are part of the everyday life of hundreds of species of animals.

By 1903, pig iron was being smelted in six blast furnaces and processed to steel. The mid 1960s saw over 17,000 people working at the ironworks. The steel crisis of the 1970s, however, led to the closure of the blast furnace works. In 1994, UNESCO declared the disused ironworks a World Cultural Heritage Site. It is the only so well-preserved ironworks in this size.

ScotlandThe Outer Hebrides is a chain of islands off the west coast of Scotland. The biggest islands are Lewis and Harris, which technically is 1 big island that is separated into 2 territories. Unlike much of mainland United Kingdom, Roman influence was not felt much in these remote parts. A greater influence was the Vikings, who are thought to have landed here towards the end of the 8th century. There are several large artefacts from that time, from standing stones to statues. But the land itself also plays a huge role in the island’s history, economy, and culture.

Joshua Tree, CaliforniaThe word desert may bring to mind an image of a flat landscape of endless sand, barren of living things. In fact, deserts—which cover over one-fifth of Earth’s land surface—come in a wide variety of types and are home to thousands of plant and animal species. The frozen plains of Antarctica, the wind-shaped dunes of North Africa, the salt flats of southwestern Bolivia, and the volcanic fields of northeastern Ethiopia are all deserts. What these regions have in common is a climate marked by aridity, a lack of rainfall combined with a high rate of water loss from the ground: deserts are dry. The southwestern region of the United States is predominantly low-lying desert comprising 4 distinct desert systems, each with its own characteristics: the Great Basin, the Mojave Desert, the Sonoran Desert, and the Chihuahuan Desert. In southern California, about 130 miles west of Los Angeles, the Mojave meets the Colorado Desert, part of the Sonoran Desert system, at a place called Joshua Tree.

the vicinity of modern day Toulon-sur-Arroux, France in order to secure grain. The Helvetti interpreted this move as fear and sought to engage

Caesar struggled to find a Gallic weakness and launched a failed assault up the steep slopes of Gergovia. The battle of Gergovia marked one of Julius Caesar’s few military defeats in his long career as a commander.

The Japanese also value the wider natural world and have created national parks and monuments to protect local landscapes. Shiraito Falls, in Shizuoka Prefecture, southwest of Mount Fuji, presents one such landscape.

Preceding the rise of the Aztecs by more than 1,000 years, the Teotihuacan civilization was a melting pot of Maya, Miztec, and Zapotec peoples. It exerted great cultural influence throughout central Mexico, the Yucatan Peninsula, and as far south as modern-day Guatemala. In around 650 A.D., an unknown event brought an end to the civilization at Teotihuacan. Excavation of the city’s ruins began in 1884 and continues today.

The World Ocean is the interconnected body of water that covers about 70 percent of Earth’s surface. Although we recognize 5 separate oceans—the Pacific, Atlantic, Indian, Arctic, and Southern Oceans—they are really part of one global system. On this expedition, you will explore coral reefs, visit islands, swim with a humpback whale, and drop by an underwater research laboratory to learn about the World Ocean.

Charlottesville, VirginaMonticello was the home of Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence and 3rd president of the United States of America. The revolutionary ideas of this man of the Enlightenment were instrumental in the creation of the United States. His home in Charlottesville, Virginia, is an architectural icon, with its neoclassical design drafted by Jefferson himself. But Monticello was also a working plantation, and the home to hundreds of enslaved people. The Founding Father who wrote “all men are created equal” was also a lifelong slave owner. On this field trip, students will learn about Thomas Jefferson’s world, including his political accomplishments, Monticello - the house and plantation, and the enslaved men, women, and children, who made his lifestyle possible.
