Remarking in Preface to the Twelth Edition that: "It thereby appears that Our Lord and His next-of-kin of the flesh possessed a not generally realised legitimate connection with the high priesthood as fully implied in Heb. iii, 1; iv, 14; v. 5; ix, 11. The implications of this connection, if valid, are of the highest significance, for accordingly, and appropriately, there has appeared out of the Tudors a line of sovereigns who are head of both church and state, and who have in that capacity endeavoured, with no small measure of success, to join kinship with Christian righteousness."

Mumford died in 1990 and believed that modern cities (worth living in) had been created by the civilising of technology in the name of society. Mumford defined a city as, "a structure specially equipped to store and transmit the goods of civilisation, sufficiently condensed to afford the maximum amount of facilities in a minimum of space, but also capable of structural enlargement to enable it to find a place for the changing needs and the more complex forms of a growing society and its cumulative social heritage". - in his book The City in History.

A perennial problem from Australia...

"Nowhere else is the record for modern human origins so deeply, utterly entangled as it is in Australasia. At the heart of the knot is a weird duality in the fossil record itself. While some of the early modern humans from Australia look much like people today, others bear all the markings of a more robust kind of human, with thick skull bones, swollen browridges, and huge teeth, even bigger than those of Homo erectus in some specimens." ... Australia poses special problems for the Out-of-Africa scenario..."
