British Museum - Conservation and Scientific Research The Department of Conservation and Scientific Research works alongside other departments in the Museum to conserve (to care for and preserve) and investigate the collection for the benefit of present and future generations.

Myths And Folk-Tales Of The Russians, Western Slavs, And Magyars | by Jeremiah Curtin A Few tens of years ago it was all-important to understand and explain the brotherhood and blood-bond of Aryan nations, and their relation to the Semitic race; to discover and set forth the meaning of that which in mental work, historic strivings, and spiritual ideals ties the historic nations to one another. At the present time this work is done, if not completely, at least measurably well, and a new work awaits us, to demonstrate that there is a higher and a mightier bond, - the relationship of created things with one another, and their inseverable connection with That which some men reverence as God, but which other men call the Unknowable, the Unseen.
