A pictorial week-in-review posted every Sunday.

1) Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney delivers her concession speech during a primary election party in Jackson, Wyoming, after losing to Trump-backed attorney Harriet Hageman on Tuesday, August 16.

9) An archaeologist is seen excavating the remains of friars buried in the grounds of the former Augustinian friary in central Cambridge. Medieval friars were ‘riddled with parasites’, research suggests. A new analysis of remains from Cambridge suggests local Augustinian friars were almost twice as likely as the city’s general population to be infected by intestinal parasites. This is despite most Augustinian monasteries at the time having toilet blocks and hand-washing facilities, unlike the homes of ordinary people. Photograph: Cambridge Archaeological Unit/PA
