The Battle of Poitiers 1356

The tale of 1 of the good battles of the Hundred Years struggle, usually neglected in favour of its extra celebrated siblings, Crecy and Agincourt. The victory at Poitiers by means of an English strength outnumbered two-to-one, led via Edward the Black Prince on nineteenth September 1356 was once essentially the most major of the Hundred Years struggle.

Victorian London: The Tale of a City 1840--1870

To Londoners, the years 1840 to 1870 have been years of dramatic swap and fulfillment. As suburbs increased and roads expanded, London used to be ripped aside to construct railway strains and stations and life-saving sewers. The Thames was once contained by means of embankments, and traffic jam used to be eased by means of the 1st underground railway on the planet.

Virtuelle Hochschulen auf dem Bildungsmarkt: Strategische Positionierung unter Berücksichtigung der Situation in Deutschland, Österreich und England

Die Euphorie über die Zukunft virtueller Hochschulen trägt den realen Gegebenheiten nicht Rechnung. Der erhoffte Wandel virtueller Hochschulprojekte von technologieorientierten Informatikprojekten zu marktorientierten Bildungsdienstleistungen ist bislang ausgeblieben. Obgleich über die Potenziale des Internets, die intellektuellen Ressourcen der Hochschulen und den wachsende Bildungsmarkt kaum Zweifel bestehen, hat eine Konsolidierung der Projekte nicht stattgefunden und die likelihood zur Reform der Hochschulen wurde aufgrund strategischer Defizite der Hochschulen und aufgrund der finanziellen Steuerungslogik des Hochschulsystems nicht wahrgenommen.

Bad Queen Bess?: Libellous Politics, Secret Histories and the Politics of Publicity in Elizabethan England

Undesirable Queen Bess? analyses the from side to side among the Elizabethan regime and diverse Catholic critics, who, from the early 1570s to the early 1590s, sought to represent that regime as a conspiracy of evil advice. via a style novel - the libellous mystery background - to English political discourse, a variety of (usually nameless) Catholic authors claimed to bare to the general public what used to be "really taking place" backstage of respectable lies and disinformation with which the clique of evil counsellors on the middle of the Elizabethan kingdom habitually cloaked their sinister maneuvers.

Swein predeceased his father, see note 69 above. Siward’s elder son Osbearn was killed in 1054 and the younger, Waltheof, cannot have been above thirteen, for he was the child of Siward’s second wife Ælfgifu, whom he married in 1041 (ASC, 1041; Symeon, HR, 1072). The ‘E’ text, which is noticeably pro-Godwine, was probably being compiled at St Augustine’s, Canterbury, at this date.
