    As part of the continuation of the "Experience Rich Anthropology" (ERA) project a set of lectures on the anthropology of religion have been digitised. The lectures have accompanying notes/suggested readings. They are being made available as mp3, quicktime and real media files (streaming quicktime to follow). The lecture course "Systems of Ritual and Belief" - written and presented by John Kesby - is available via the main ERA web page: era.anthroplogy.ac.uk

    We have done this as an experiment. We would very much welcome feedback about this material in order to assess whether it is worth doing more, or whether to change the form of presentation. yours sincerely davidz
