|Jacksonville State University's History Club recently went on
a field trip to Atlanta to attend the Scottish Highland Games.
In the two photos at top, clan representatives prepare for the
parade of tartans (a tartan is a plaid garment of Scottish origin
consisting of stripes of varying width and color, usually patterned
to designate a distinctive clan). The clans march at the head
of the parade during the opening ceremonies. In the second photo,
a participant in the caber throwing competition is preparing to
lift the caber onto his shoulder. The cabers used in this event
were 30 feet long. In the third photo, a member of the Atlanta
Pipe and Drum band perform during the band competition. The fourth
photo shows members of the History Club gathering for lunch. Photos
five and six show Greek statues at the Carlos Museum on the campus
of Emory University. They date from 750 - 550 B.C. In photo seven,
Dr. Llewellyn Cook, faculty advisor, examines Latin American artifacts
that date from 300-350 B.C.
