Adventure, danger and mystery from the award-winning Ted Dawe. 'The year mum died and Dad went mad I was packed off to a farm for a while.' The first sentence sets the scene for this tender and dramatic story. But this is no ordinary farm: our narrator's Aunt Lorna, Uncle Frank and five cousins belong to the Jerusalem League, a William Blake cult. Their house is unusual, in that the rooms are hexagons - six-sided - as are the doors and windows, the dinner table and plates. And you guessed it; they're bee-keepers. Our young narrator takes us through his initiation to farm life: chores and more chores, which he doesn't mind really, starting a new school and coping with the local bully, Noel Cudby, finding the perfect place: a swimming hole hidden in the bush, and making friends with Pimpernickle, the resident pig. It's here with Pimpernickle when we become aware of his loneliness: 'That pig is sure smart. I reckon he can tell my moods. When I'm feeling depressed, which is quite often to tell the truth, he comes over and stands next to me real close.' But when our storyteller goes off to school camp things turn from wet to wetter. Noah's flood is served up with a good serving of wind: the river rises and floods and the sorry lot of wet kids and a few parents are forced to head for higher ground. How will they cross the river and reach safe ground? Just what happens when they're rescued? A tender story told with humour and insight.

Many folklore stories over time are slowly transformed into myth and legend, permeating the national psyche, eventually becoming part of the way that we think and view ourselves as a nation. This incisive quest attempts to unravel and find answers to many of the still unanswered questions that present themselves when enquiring into some of these myths and legends. This quest offers definitive answers to such questions as: • What is the relationship between the Neolithic works dotted around the British landscape, and those who built the many churches on pre-exiting pagan sites? • Who was St. Michael and why is it that his name is inextricably linked with the phenomenon of the longest ley line in Britain? What does this system of ley lines constructed upon the British landscape portend for future generations? • Who was Joseph of Arimathea and where is he buried? • Where exactly is the fabled Island of Ictis; can we establish a relationship between this island, renowned in the ancient world as an exporter of tin, with Joseph of Arimathea? • What exactly is the prophetic tradition? Do the biblical prophets have any relevance today? Was the prophecy of Melkin that tells of the whereabouts of Jesus’ tomb, of that same prophetic tradition? • Was King Arthur’s body actually found in Glastonbury, or was it an elaborate hoax? If not, where is he buried? What is the connection between the Templar treasure and the Isle of Avalon and what has this to do with Leonardo da Vinci? • What is the meaning of the Grail stories? What is the Grail and who does it serve? Where is the Island of Sarras and why is it so named. • What has the Grail tradition to do with the Turin Shroud? How was it that Science was unable to say how the image on the Turin Shroud was formed? Why can no one explain the shrouds provenance or history prior to 1353 AD? These topics initially seem to be so disparate and unconnected that any relation between them appears scant and impossible to establish with any degree of certainty. However, it is the aim of this enquiry to show how inextricably linked these diverse questions are. It shows how the many pieces of a puzzle that have hitherto been unconnected, hidden, deliberately obscured, ignored, misunderstood, or even inadvertently lost over time, can be resolved into one conclusive body of evidence.

The landscape of the British Isles is filled with history, much of which we miss as it flashes past the car window. Do we even realise that we're following the same path as the Tolpuddle Martyrs, or that we're driving past the exact spot where King Harold was killed, shot through the eye with an arrow? As a lover of both history and the British countryside, Charlie Connelly decided to rectify this, and set out on a series of walks that recreate famous historical journeys. En route he retells the story of the original trip while discovering who and what now inhabit these iconic routes. Walking in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, Charlie journeys alongside Boudicca's ghost in Norfolk, relives Bonnie Prince Charlie's flight to Skye disguised as Flora MacDonald's maid and takes the same 32-mile round trip as the starving Louisburgh famine walkers. He suffers broken toes, becomes trapped in the Scottish Parliament and encounters dead poets and a surprisingly high number of mad old women in woolly hats. Told with Charlie's customary charm and wit, And Did Those Feet will reveal the historical secrets hidden in the much-loved coastal, country and urban landscapes of Britain.

Judging by general repute, it is among Wesley's finest: "justly famous and beloved, better known than almost any other hymn of Charles Wesley." Judging by its distribution, it is also among his most successful: by the end of the 19th century, it is found in 15 of the 17 hymn books consulted by the authors of Lyric Studies. . On a larger scale, it is found almost universally in general collections of the past century, including not only Methodist and Anglican hymn books and commercial and ecumenical collections, but also hymnals associated with Reformed, Presbyterian, Baptist, Brethren, Lutheran, Congregationalist, Pentecostal, and Roman Catholic traditions, among others; specifically, it ap...

The present volume, number VIII in the series Groningen Studies in Cultural Change, offers a selection of papers presented at a workshop organised by Amanda Gilroy and Wil Verhoeven entitled Green and Pleasant Land: English Culture and the Romantic Countryside. The contributions in this volume illuminate the ideological investments of particular ways of experiencing the English countryside of the Romantic era. While their analyses of cultural change are historically specific, they explore, too, the conflicted present-day legacies of romantic landscapes.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 46. Chapters: God Save the Queen, Lion, And did those feet in ancient time, Royal Arms of England, English Mastiff, Flag of England, Royal Supporters of England, Royal Standards of England, National anthem of England, Tudor rose. Excerpt: The lion (Panthera leo) is one of the four big cats in the genus Panthera, and a member of the family Felidae. With some males exceeding 250 kg (550 lb) in weight, it is the second-largest living cat after the tiger. Wild lions currently exist in Sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia with an endangered remnant population in Gir Forest National Park in India, having disappeared from North Africa and Southwest Asia in historic times. Until the late Pleistocene, about 10,000 years ago, the lion was the most widespread large land mammal after humans. They were found in most of Africa, across Eurasia from western Europe to India, and in the Americas from the Yukon to Peru. The lion is a vulnerable species, having seen a possibly irreversible population decline of thirty to fifty percent over the past two decades in its African range. Lion populations are untenable outside designated reserves and national parks. Although the cause of the decline is not fully understood, habitat loss and conflicts with humans are currently the greatest causes of concern. Lions live for ten to fourteen years in the wild, while in captivity they can live longer than twenty years. In the wild, males seldom live longer than ten years, as injuries sustained from continual fighting with rival males greatly reduce their longevity. They typically inhabit savanna and grassland, although they may take to bush and forest. Lions are unusually social compared to other cats. A pride of lions consists of related females and offspring and a small number of adult males. Groups of female lions typically hunt together, preying mostly on large u...
