  1. Title Authors and affiliations The King's Manor, one of historic York's most attractive and unusual sites, is enjoying a renaissance which is both physical and intellectual. As home to University of York staff and students, its buildings and grounds epitomise the sensitive and appropriate use of historic structures. Introduction Results The King's Manor, one of historic York's most attractive and unusual sites, is enjoying a renaissance which is both physical and intellectual. As home to University of York staff and students, its buildings and grounds epitomise the sensitive and appropriate use of historic structures. In 1995 the Department of Archaeology (incorporating the former Institute of Advanced Architectural Studies) joined the Centre for Medieval Studies in the complex of buildings that form the King's Manor. They were joined in 1998 by the Centre for Eighteenth Century Studies. The conjunction of these major areas of scholarship has been the spur to flourishing inter-disciplinary projects. As the city-centre premises of the University of York, the King's Manor has a sure place in the future. The staff of Archaeology, Medieval Studies and Eighteenth Century Studies have built up unparalleled reputations through innovative teaching and world-leading research, characteristics which have become the hallmark of the University.

As the city-centre premises of the University of York, the King's Manor has a sure place in the future. The staff of Archaeology, Medieval Studies and Eighteenth Century Studies have built up unparalleled reputations through innovative teaching and world-leading research, characteristics which have become the hallmark of the University. And this group of largely Grade I medieval buildings is a vivid evocation of the past. Originally the Abbot's House of St Mary's Abbey, the King's Manor served the Tudors and Stuarts as a seat of government, becoming a school and residences in the 18th century. The history of the King's Manor weaves a continuous thread in the history of York since medieval times. Conclusions • There's no place like Bayou Segnette, Cher. It's a steamy, primordial world rich in Cajun Heritage, bathed in the brilliant colors of south Louisiana, and stirred only by the sounds of the thousands of wild creatures that make the swamp their home. • Alligators rule here, sliding confidently through the murky water. Great Blue Herons and Egrets fish silently off the banks. • Snakes and turtles bask lazily in the sun and Cypress trees loom mysteriously on the horizon as Cajun shrimp boats idle by with their nets strung high • Bayou Segnette's legends are just a fraction of what makes the Cypress Experience fun and interesting. The swamp is an incredible ecosystem blooming with life, and generations of native Cajuns have lived in fascinating harmony within nature's delicate balance.Some of the things you'll learn on a Cypress Swamp Tour will amaze you. For example, did you know that ... • An alligator can stay underwater for up to three hours? • Green-backed Herons "fish" by placing small floating objects on the water's surface to attract their prey? • Cypress trees get oxygen from their knees? • Spanish Moss is a flowering plant related to pineapples? • Cajuns used processed Spanish Moss to stuff their mattresses? • The word "bayou" comes from the Houma Indian word "bayuk" meaning slow moving river? • Bayou Segnette's legends are just a fraction of what makes the Cypress Experience fun and interesting. The swamp is an incredible ecosystem blooming with life, and generations of native Cajuns have lived in fascinating harmony within nature's delicate balance.
