Shep Introduction The 1914 Labour Day commemorations in Wellington marked the revival of a time-honoured tradition and were celebrated in style. The event was recorded in the pages of the monthly Australasian Typographical Journal by an unidentified correspondent Culture is transmitted to employees in a number of ways. The most significant are stories, rituals, material symbols, and language. The culture of society also comprises the shared values, understandings, assumptions, and goals that are learned from earlier generations, imposed by present members of society, and passed on to succeeding generations. A sacred language is typically vested with a solemnity and dignity that the vernacular lacks. Consequently, the training of clergy in the use of a sacred language becomes an important cultural investment, and their use of the tongue is perceived to give them access to a body of knowledge that untrained lay people cannot (or should not) access. History of Europe - History of Europe - Rituals, religion, and art: Throughout this period there were vivid and striking manifestations of religious beliefs, ritual behaviour, and artistic activities. One of the most remarkable phenomena was hoarding. Objects, usually in large numbers, were deliberately hidden in the ground or deposited in water in the form of a hoard.

Language, as described above, is species-specific to human beings. Other members of the animal kingdom have the ability to communicate, through vocal noises or by other means, but the most important single feature characterizing human language (that is, every individual language), against every known mode of animal communication, is its infinite productivity and creativity. In an era of significant cultural and religious changes in particular between an Egyptian local tradition and a Greek-Egyptian-Roman "international" culture, a new and dynamic preservation of rituals and knowledge is probably at the origin of the complexity of modes of expression and linguistic codes that make up the distinguishing features of the texts of the PGM....
