Archaeology of CERN

Professor David Jenkins (Department of Physics, University of York)
Professor John Schofield (Department of Archaeology, University of York)
Archaeology is more than mummies and digging in the ground. It can also consider the use of landscapes by humans. Some of the most dramatic uses of landscapes are scientific laboratories. In a unique collaboration an archaeologist and a nuclear physicist visited CERN. A photo essay on the use of landscape and the human features of CERN will be presented.

The Invisible Universe

Dr Celine Boehm (Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology, Durham University)
Most of the matter in our Universe is invisible and consequently we do not know what it is made of. Yet this "dark" matter plays an essential role in the shaping of the large-scale-structures of the Universe. Here, I will discuss how observations of galaxies and their environment could help to elucidate the nature of the dark matter and perhaps reveal new physical laws.
