William the Conqueror's March on London

William the Conqueror (r. 1066-1087 CE) was victorious at the Battle of Hastings in October 1066 CE, and Harold Godwinson, King Harold II of England (r. Jan - Oct 1066 CE) was dead. The English throne and kingdom were there for the taking but there was still much work to be done before the Normans could claim the rights of conquest. Taking Romney, Dover Castle, Canterbury, and Winchester, amongst others, William’s army captured and subdued towns and fortifications throughout the south-east of England until, finally, the Conqueror turned south and marched on London in November 1066 CE. The city, then the focal point of Anglo-Saxon resistance, surrendered without a fight so that William was able to be crowned in Westminster Abbey on Christmas Day of 1066 CE. The conquest of England was by no means complete but it was clear that the Normans were here to stay.

Bauhaus in pictures: The architects exiled by Nazis

Established in 1919, in the wake of World War One, Germany's Bauhaus art school brought a radical new approach to design and aesthetics which would eventually go on to help inform modernist architecture around the world. Now in its centenary year, we look at a selection of some of the buildings shaped by the influential art school.
The Bauhaus was founded in Weimar by Prussian architect Walter Gropius (1883-1969). While Bauhaus translates as "building house", Gropius didn't want to build only houses; instead, he wanted to create artists who could turn their hands to anything. Students were taught pottery, printmaking, bookbinding, carpentry, typography and advertising. They were encouraged to look at the world around them in a new way, studying in hands-on workshops that were the opposite of the stuffy and elitist lectures of many contemporary design schools.
In 1925, the Bauhaus relocated to the city of Dessau, where Gropius designed a new base for the school. With a steel frame structure and large walls of glass, the building featured many characteristics of modernist architecture.

The Bell inn Kilburn my local Pub.

Just a bit of personal history

In the older of the two pictures of the  Bell Inn you can see down the road the old Tollgate for which the area is still known and just behind the sign of the inn is a gibbit where a criminals head hangs. Its all set in 1750 not that long ago when you think about it. Thankfully when you have a beer in the inn today you don't see any severed heads now.

Trade in Medieval Europe

Trade and commerce in the medieval world developed to such an extent that even relatively small communities had access to weekly markets and, perhaps a day’s travel away, larger but less frequent fairs, where the full range of consumer goods of the period was set out to tempt the shopper and small retailer. Markets and fairs were organised by large estate owners, town councils, and some churches and monasteries, who, granted a license to do so by their sovereign, hoped to gain revenue from stall holder fees and boost the local economy as shoppers used peripheral services. International trade had been present since Roman times but improvements in transportation and banking, as well as the economic development of northern Europe, caused a boom from the 9th century CE. English wool, for example, was sent in huge quantities to manufacturers in Flanders; the Venetians, thanks to the Crusades, expanded their trade interests to the Byzantine Empire and the Levant, and new financial instruments evolved which allowed even small investors to fund the trade expeditions which criss-crossed Europe by sea and land.

Museum of Scotland in row over authenticity of Great Pyramid stone

The Museum of Scotland has been caught up in a row about whether it has permission to exhibit a casing stone from an Egyptian pyramid.
It was announced last week that a block of limestone from the Great Pyramid of Giza was to go on display in Edinburgh.
Egypt's Antiquities Repatriation Department has since cast doubt over its authenticity and documentation.
However, the museum has insisted that a British engineer was given permission to take the stone in 1872.
The pyramid stone is due to go on public display for the first time next month as the centrepiece of an exhibition on ancient Egypt in Edinburgh.
But Shabaan Abdel Gawwad, supervisor-general of Egypt's Antiquities Repatriation Department, has said he wants an official team to visit Scotland, asking for a certificate of possession and export documents.
