Perseus with the head of Medusa by Benvenuto Cellini. 🐍 Dated between 1545-1554. I felt so much joy seeing this in front of me last week. When I was 7 years old my Year 3 teacher buried replica Saxon weapons in a sandpit for us to ‘excavate’. Following that, I really wanted to be an archaeologist, spurring me on to take a greater interest in history. I found solace in mythology, particularly Greek and Roman and watching Time Team mixed with Blackadder (the latter admittedly not being conventionally educational.) #history #mythology #greekmyth #greekgod #gorgon #perseus #perseusandmedusa #medusa #snake #statue #historical #myths #myth #story #imagination #florence #italy #uffizi #art #artwork #firenze #italia #BenvenutoCellini #design #arty #historical

These are the grave markers for the 3 men that were executed at Jward. Andrew Vair, Henry Morgan and Robert Francis Burns. The arrows are carved into the wall to show where the prisoners were buried. Prisoners who were buried on site were buried standing up and facing the wall. That way they could never Rest In Peace and they hold always see their freedom but not experience it. When they buried the bodies they used lime to cover them, thinking it would break down the body faster. It had the opposite affect and actually preserved them. Now in winter the whole ground outside frosts over, except for the areas where the men are buried

This Day in History - King Edward abdicates On 16 November 1936, Edward invited British Prime Minister Stanley Baldwin to Buckingham Palace and expressed his desire to marry Wallis Simpson when she became free to remarry. Baldwin informed him that his subjects would deem the marriage morally unacceptable, largely because remarriage after divorce was opposed by the Church of England, and the people would not tolerate Simpson as queen.As king, Edward was the titular head of the Church of England, and the clergy expected him to support the Church's teachings. Edward proposed an alternative solution of a morganatic marriage, in which he would remain king but Simpson would not become queen. She would enjoy some lesser title instead, and any children they might have would not inherit the throne. This too was rejected by the British Cabinetas well as other Dominion governments, whose views were sought pursuant to the Statute of Westminster 1931, which provided in part that "any alteration in the law touching the Succession to the Throne or the Royal Style and Titles shall hereafter require the assent as well of the Parliaments of all the Dominions as of the Parliament of the United Kingdom." Edward informed Baldwin that he would abdicate if he could not marry Simpson. Baldwin then presented Edward with three choices: give up the idea of marriage; marry against his ministers' wishes; or abdicate. It was clear that Edward was not prepared to give up Simpson, and he knew that if he married against the advice of his ministers, he would cause the government to resign, prompting a constitutional crisis. He chose to abdicate. Officialy abdicating on December 11th 1936, King Edward VIII renounced his claim to the throne and married Wallis. His brother, Albert, became King George VI, his daughter Elizabeth II ascending after his death. #history #historical #england #scotland #wales #uk #britain #britishhistory #1930s #1936 #kingedwardviii #wallissimpson #abdication #kinggeorgevi #thisdayinhistory

The bridge extends between Ortaköy (in Europe) and Beylerbeyi (in Asia). -Designer Sir Gilbert Roberts and William Brown -Construction start 20 February 1970 -Construction end 1 June 1973 -Opened 30 October 1973 It is a gravity-anchored suspension bridge with steel towers and inclined hangers. The aerodynamic deck hangs on zigzag steel cables. It is 1,560 m long with a deck width of 33.40 m (110 ft). The distance between the towers (main span) is 1,074 m (3,524 ft) and the total height of the towers is 165 m (541 ft). The clearance of the bridge from sea level is 64 m (210 ft). Upon its completion in 1973, the Bosphorus Bridge had the fourth-longest suspension bridge span in the world, and the longest outside the United States (only the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge and Mackinac Bridge had a longer span in 1973). The Bosphorus Bridge remained the longest suspension bridge in Europe until the completion of the Humber Bridge in 1981, and the longest suspension bridge in Asia until the completion of the Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge (Second Bosphorus Bridge) in 1988 (which was surpassed by the Minami Bisan-Seto Bridge in 1989). Currently, the Bosphorus Bridge has the 25th-longest suspension bridge span in the world.

#OnTour with #SilverDaggerBookTours ~~••~~ #BookTour ~~••~~ A Choice of Secrets by Barb Hendee Ever since raiders from the north began attacking villages, Lady Nicole Montagna has known that defending her people would come at a cost. The betrothal of her sister Chloe to a neighboring lord seems the perfect solution, forging a powerful alliance. But shortly before the wedding, Nicole is shocked to discover that her sister is with child—and not by her husband-to-be. Now she must make a choice. She has just hours to decide . . . ~Should she tell her soldier brother— who will take swift, ruthless action to ensure the family’s safety? ~Should she hold her tongue, let her sister deceive her husband into believing the child is his— and then hope Chloe can get away with the lie? ~Should she tell her family, hoping they will know the right thing to do? With the help of a magic mirror, Nicole lives out each path, fighting to protect herself and those she loves with the weapons she has: wits, herbs, and fortitude. But no matter her cleverness, neither she nor her family can escape unscathed—for there are repercussions she could never have foreseen, involving her own heart . . . A CHOICE OF SECRETS New York Times bestselling author Barb Hendee spins a tale of intrigue, integrity, and the bonds of love and loyalty as one young woman finds her place in a turbulent world . . . #Historical #Fantasy #NewRelease #DarkGlass #bookstagram #ebookadditsuk

Imiola Church, one of our town’s most historic structures, with its’ glowing Koa interior and a history that reaches into the early 1800s, stands gracefully at the northeast end of Church Row. This holy space and architectural gem, with a name that means “Seeking Life” claims numerous interesting designations including being the oldest Church in Waimea, as well as the home to Reverend Lorenzo Lyons from 1832 to 1886. Imiola began its’ journey through many incarnations in the early 1800s as a grass hale with one window and a humble wooden pulpit. With the arrival of Lorenzo Lyons in 1832, a thatched roof stone church was erected, after it collapsed in 1855, Lyons designed and commissioned the church we see today – making it over 160 years old. When you set foot into the church you are overwhelmed by the glowing Koa walls, ceiling, floors, and details. Unbelievably, this radiant wood spent many years hidden under layers of paint, only to be restored and brought back to its’ intended glory in the 1970s. It continues to stand today as a place of worship, preserved history, devotion & community.

In Shanghai, these hundred year old neighbourhoods are slowly being torn down and redeveloped. There are still remanence of posters from the second sino-Japanese war. I can only imagine what kind of history these buildings and it's occupants endured..sad to see it being replaced with skyscrapers soon. . . . . . . . . #shanghai #上海 #travelphotography #seetheworld #urbanphotography #oldneighborhood #historical #history #decay

Cranmer at traitors gate ~ Frederick Goodall ~ 1856 ~ V&A collection, London. • • • • The moment Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer stepped through traitors gate to await his punishment. Cranmer supported the translation of the bible into English, and contributed to the creation of the common prayer book. But after Edward VI's death, Cranmer supported Lady Jane Grey as successor. Her nine-day 'reign' was followed by the ascension of the Catholic Mary I, who had him tried for treason. After a long trial and imprisonment, he eventually had to proclaim to the public his errors to the crown. A few days later he was burnt at the stake in Oxford, 1556. • • • • • • #art #arthistory #thomascranmer #frederickgoodall #toweroflondon #london #artwork #oilpainting #religion #arte #artist #painting #painter #artagram #artsy #artsagram #igart #instahistory #historical #historypainting #histoire #history #artesanato #gallery #daily #artlover #treason #instagood #oiloncanvas #englishart
