{{ event.description }}

Jos is the state capital of Plateau State at the center of Northern Nigeria. Its cool climate, due to its breathtaking system of plateaux, and its colonial importance as the tin mining center of Nigeria made it a favorite tourist destination. However, recent communal and religious violence had put this on hold. most recently Jos has gone clean out of religious and communal crisis, it is now slowly gaining its peace

Understand

Jos is inhabited by various ethnic groups chief of whom are the indigenous Jarawa, Birom, Anarguta, Bugi, Mwagwavul, Angas, Tarok and many more from different other place's in Nigeria, Yoruba and Igbo, Hausa's and many southerners displaced from other northern cities in the aftermath of religious violence. The widely spoken language is Hausa , because of the high literacy rate in Jos almost everyone speaks English.

Jos is a very old city built as one of the most oldest cities in Nigeria during the colonial rule. Jos has always been the home of many cultures and it will always be. because of its old structure Jos has been has been a very hard place for the government to renew. although place's like ray-field and other new settlements have the most recent feeling of leaving in a developed city, but its oldest sites and tourist locations most certainly are very outdated.

Get in

Jos is served by many bus lines, chiefly Cross Country that runs air-conditioned mini-van services from Lagos and Abuja. The state government owned Plateau Line runs station wagon services, but these are mostly uncomfortably crowded trips. Many other state governments operated transport services with terminus's in various Jos motor-parks from surrounding state capitals: Gombe, Lafia, Kaduna, Damaturu and even Yola. Other mini-bus or car services are private arrangements where you sit and wait for the vehicle to fill up, but are best avoided because the drivers tend to have dubious driving skills. you can also get into Jos by having a private driver on a private vehicle, because of the recent Terrorist acts; you may pass through a lot of security check points.

By plane

Arik air runs a once a day domestic flight from Lagos to Jos and back. The Jos airport is located some 30km from the town so it is best to have some money for a taxi fare to town (generally about 2,500 naira)if there will be nobody waiting for you.

By train

The old locomotive trains famed in Cyprian Ekwensi's 'The Passport of Mallam Ilia' no more bring the people in and the tin out.

By car

You can get into Jos by a private Car or a rented vehicle

By bus

you can get into Jos by public bus's that take passengers from particular spots

By boat

Jos has no surrounding big sea's or rivers so the only way may be by Plane,Buses, or cars.

Get around

There are many taxi cabs, and other transport vehicles all over Jos, but they have to be shared with other passengers over defined routes. it is also possible to get a private taxi where you share with no one at all, but it is better to bear with the sharing than to be robed. Some mini-bus routes are also defined but these are difficult to understand. The taxis and buses almost always tend to be rickety. Motorcycle taxis, commonly known as 'achaba' are also a choice but these can be very dangerous as the road network is filled with a lot of potholes and there is a general lack of safe practices. The achaba rides also tend to be more expensive that the taxi or bus rides but are very flexible. but not to worry with the recent change in government (2017) the roads are more safer

See

There are many parks you can see in Jos, examples are the wild life park, the national museum etc

The old tin mines are all on the outskirts of Jos. They have developed into lakes which might have some environmental concerns. The areas are generally safe but it is best to go with a guide. The Jos wildlife park is not very interesting as there is hardly anything interesting to see. There are many waterfalls on the outskirts of Jos.

Do

there is nothing much to do in Jos except you are cooperate. Jos is mostly a very serious place with mostly cooperate place's and not much fun,

Learn

Jos, has more than a thousand high schools most of which are private owned, but the government also owns a large scale of the number, it is mostly better to learn at private schools.

The University of Jos has courses in most fields and has sufficient hostel accommodation. The Nigerian Television Authority (NTA) has its television college also located in Jos where courses in film production and editing are on offer.

many other private institutions also exist.

Buy

The central business district is located around Ahmadu Bello Way in the center of Jos. you can buy virtually everything possible, ranging from mobile phones, sim cards, other devices and peripherals, and many other items including food stuffs snacks There are many banks in the area as well. General merchandise may be purchased around here. For leather products at very good prices, Ferin Gada on Bauchi Road is the best place to go.

Eat

There are many eateries and restaurants that offer a range of cuisines. Local delicacies are also very abundant. many modern restaurants serve International dishes in case you don't feel like eating the local dishes available.

Budget

You may need to budget a lot if you will need to buy much in Jos, but as a normal person who just wanna have a trip to jos, you may need Just about fifty thousand Naira which is just about two hundred dollars or so

Mid-range

be reminded to always have a local citizen with you so to know what exactly you may need for a day

Splurge

Drink

Shemshak, opposite The University of Jos gates is a local favourite where the price is reasonable. there are many other drink zones where local brewed drinks or international drinks are served

Sleep

Budget

there are many Hotels where you can lay low, and have a quite and interesting sleep. you may need a local citizen to suggest the best place of your description

Connect

Stay safe

Just like the US Nigeria also has a toll-free single emergency number that you can call in case of any trouble, be it fire, or anything. but beware the response time may not be as fast as it is in your country; so you should try and be safe

Cope

you can speak english and Hausa Language to virtually every Jos citizen and they understand but be ware someone who dos'nt understand English may just stare at you as you speak while others may try redirecting you to others who can, notice where they point to, they may be pointing at people with better knowledge of what you are asking for. some may speak a mixture of English and other languages whilst no one will definitely speak the pidgin english mostly spoken among locals

Journey to Portugal: In Pursuit of Portugal's History and Culture

Jos\Xe9 Saramago

When José Saramago decided to write a book about Portugal, his only desire was that it be unlike all other books on the subject, and in this he has certainly succeeded. Recording the events and observations of a journey across the length and breadth of the country he loves dearly, Saramago brings Portugal to life as only a writer of his brilliance can. Forfeiting the usual sources such as tourist guides and road maps, he scours the country with the eyes and ears of an observer fascinated by the ancient myths and history of his people. Whether it be an inaccessible medieval fortress set on a cliff, a wayside chapel thick with cobwebs, or a grand mansion in the city, the extraordinary places of this land come alive. Always meticulously attentive to those elements of ancient Portugal that persist today, he examines the country in its current period of rapid transition and growth. Journey to Portugal is an ode to a country and its rich traditions.

Museums and Higher Education Working Together: Challenges and Opportunities

Jos Boys

Over the last twenty years the educational role of the museum has come to be central to its mission. There are now far more educational opportunities, new spaces, new interfaces - both digital and physical, and a growing number of education and interpretation departments, educational curators and public engagement programmes. Despite these developments, however, higher education has remained a marginal collaborator compared to primary and secondary schools and to other forms of adult learning. This has meant that the possibilities for partnerships between universities, colleges, museums and galleries has remained relatively unexplored, especially in relation to their potential for generating innovative patterns of research and learning. This book addresses the key issues which are preventing such partnerships and examines how to enable more effective and creative connections between museums and higher education. The authors identify conceptual and practical barriers and explore whether current academic models are fit for purpose. They argue that as pressures mount on public educational resources around the world, there needs to be an urgent increase in the exchange of knowledge across these sectors and the forging of world-class scholarly partnerships. Examples of research undertaken internationally offer best practice models for collaboration and integration. This book will be compulsory reading for museum and educational specialists and those interested in engaging in museum/higher education partnerships. It will also be of interest to those involved in policy and decision-making in education, the museum sector and national and local government.

Jos Klein

Excerpt from Der Sibirische Pelzhandel und Seine Bedeutung für die Eroberung Sibiriens: Inaugural-Dissertation zur Erlangung der Doktorwürde der Hohen Philosophischen Fakultät der Rheinischen Friedrich-Wilhelm-Universität zu Bonn

Der Zobel hat die Erschliessung und Er oberung Sibiriens veranlasst; er hat auch einen grossen Teil der Kosten mit seiner Haut bezahlt.

Dieser vielsagende Ausspruch des Grafen F. Berg (balt. Wochenschrift, Dorpat 1905, No. 28, S. Dessen Be gründung einem späteren Abschnitt der vorliegenden Auf gabe angehört, lenkt ungezwungen den Blick auf das heutige britische Nordamerika, den zweiten grossen Pelz lieferanten der Erde. Wie in Sib-iren, so hat auch hier der vor 300 Jahren begonnene P-elzhand-el zur Erforschung und Erschliessung des in die Polarregion sich weit aus dehnenden Gebietes den Haupfanlass gegeben.
