Images Redacted

I am not making available the images I use with these slides in the classroom. This is because UK law does not sufficiently exclude photographic reproductions from copyright. All images may be accessed via the link on the next slide. I am leaving image links in place; instead of the actual images, you will see the alt text containing a brief description and sourcing information.
