    The first part is about the making of the object, and its 'life ' as a common, practical object used for cooking during the Japanese prehistory. The second part is about the appropriation of the object during the Edo period, and its individualisation and sacralisation as a utensil for the tea ceremony. The third and final part will be focused on how the object was changed when it integrated the British Museum, and how, as Neil MacGregor phrased it, the pot came to be an 'embassador ' for Japanese civilisation throughout the world.5 This pot was made around 7,000 years ago by the Jomon people. The importance of pots for the Jomon civilisation is evident, as Jomon refers to the cord-like impressions on the pots.6 Pots had several uses, but our pot was specifically made for cooking, as there is evidence of remaining carbonised food inside.7 The pot is made of low-fired clay, and the cord-like impressions on the outside were achieved by rotating and pressing cords onto the clay, to make it resemble a basket (Fig. 2).8 The only evidence we have about the function of the pot and how it was made comes from what we know about other pots, and as there are no written records of the Jomon period, it is impossible to know the individual fate of the pot during that period of time. What can be known for sure is that the pot was at one point taken out of circulation and was then seemingly lost for several millennia, before being discovered and excavated between 1700 and 1900.9 At this…

    Fate and Fame in Viking Culture and Religion “Cattle die and kinsmen die,/ thyself too soon must die” (Havamal st. 75). This oft-heard quote from the Old Norse poem Havamal is merely one example of the deep sense of finality that pervades Viking literature and religious beliefs. Unlike many contemporary faiths, chiefly the Abrahamic religions, Norse mythology lacks an eternal afterlife. For most individuals, including both men and gods, death is absolute and immutable. Intrinsically, this…

    “What the world fails to realise is a villain is just a victim whose story hasn’t been told” (Colfer.) This quote comes from Chris Colfer and I think it should be in the back of everyone’s mind when reading or watching a villain’s behavior and actions. Just as our hero can turn out to be wicked, our villain could actually be the most heroic character in a story. You can never take what’s happening for face value right away; you have to think outside of what you’re being presented. Perhaps there…

    “Maybe all we had has always been right Think of all the love you gain when you send it over Think of all the wool I’ve spun to be here tonight” A good intelligence officer should not have any tells. They should never, under any circumstances, endanger the mission by falling for and sleeping with their partner. It was a very good thing, then, that Cassian was currently on furlough because he was failing miserably on both counts. For the first time in many years, a mission—the mission—was…

    Immanuel Kant is most notably known as the man whose ideas on morality have greatly shaped the landscape of Ethics. Perhaps most important is his concept of rational humans having inherent dignity, but is this philosophy still true today and if so is it still relevant in a society that has so many more facets in a world far more complex than the time he lived. By introducing and explaining Kant’s concept of inherent dignity and showing how some people or groups of people have been at the both a…
