8th July 1685, the Duke of Monmouth lost the national ‘Hide and Seek’ championships! As punishment they cut his head of at the Tower of London!

Reading the latest issue of BBC History Magazine :)

An evening with Dan Snow. This is well worth attending if he is visiting a Theatre near you. Include a gin and tonic sorbet to complete the evening#dansnow #history #bbchistory #historyhit #ginandtonic #marshfieldfarmicecream #westcliff

So here is the historian in me appearing... (Sorry!) °

Wherever you are, whoever you are, take just a moment to remember that on this day in 1944, many nations came together in one last push to end WW2. On 6th June, D-Day marked the beginning of the end of the war, but over 400,000 men died fighting for their countries during this battle alone. It's hard for younger generations (including me) to gauge how immense this loss is, or to empathise with a bygone era, but we MUST remember. Their sacrifice is our freedom and it will do us good to remember in times like this, when nations are caught up in trade wars and people are more concerned with the filter on their selfie than the world around them, that we once stood side by side and fought for freedom, together, and we must never forget.

New painting, "King Charles II", oil and acrylic on wood. I drew a statue of Charles The Second in the Victoria and Albert museum some time last year and based bits of this painting on that. I'm very interested in his life amongst such a dramatic part of British history, growing up in exile before the Restoration, and during his reign was the Great Fire of London.

A look back in history, this was my mum's autograph book from some of the soldiers from the world war. Amazing to have a look back at some of the poems from them. #army #navy #airforce #royal #autographbook #poems #soldiers #war #worldwar #history #throwback #bbchistory

Such a fascinating series .amazing how the Neanderthals DNA is helping scientists understand the flu virus and maybe develop a cure . Always look to the past for future discoveries #bbc #bbchistory #lovehistory #neanderthals

Mary Beard left Jimmy Nail alone for five minutes repairing the dry stone walls at Housesteads. He is in a terrible sulk because he’s been tricked into volunteering by Sting, who thought it would be a great way to get Nail out of his comfort zone. Nail has been moping so much that he’s managed to dismantle an original section of the UNESCO Heritage protected Roman Wall. Professor Beard’s wrath is terrible to behold. Parallels between this scene and the image of Perseus versus the Medusa are not lost on Beard because she is a classicist and absolutely class. You can just about make out her fantastic and spotless trainers. #handsoutofyourpocketsJimmyman @marybeardofficial @twicebrewedbrewhouse @yhathesill #jimmynail #marybeard #sting #bbchistory #celebrityfourwheeldrivecarwash #hadrianswall #housesteadsromanfort #romanwall #thelastgreatwilderness #thelastship #northumberlandnoir #northumberland #drystonewall #getnorth2018

Мусор в прошлое время
😳
Продолжаю раздумывать над проблемой замусоривания земли... (это еще от прошлого поста и обсуждений меня не отпустило). Я постоянно вспоминала теорию разбитых окон...
🏠
🏠
Но сейчас хочу поговорить не о ней. А о том, как же справлялись с мусором в прошлые века. Понятное дело, тогда у них не было того, что сейчас угрожает в первую очередь живым существам (пакеты, пластик). И я имею ввиду даже не людей, а птиц и животных, которые эти пакеты едят и умирают, или рыб, которые в этом запутываются.... 😢
😢
Так вот, насчет прошлого... Тогда пытались по максимуму использовать все. Потому-что это были деньги и очень большой труд. Чтобы создать 1 метр полотна нужно было очень так славно попахать - вырастить, вымочить, выбить, и потратить еще кучу времени и сил до того, как растение станет тканью. Ну или шерсть с овцы тоже станет тканью... Это если о ткани. Но точно так же требовалось много сил для создания посуды, мебели и т.д. Поэтому к этому относились бережно и аккуратно.. И вытягивали все возможные ресурсы из каждой вещи, даже старой, разбитой или сломанной. У нас же, как мне кажется, утратилась истинная ценность вещей 🤔
А вообще, я очень рекомендую посмотреть серию сериалов с Руфь Гудман: "Ферма Эдвардианской эпохи", "Ферма во времена войны", "Викторианская ферма", Есть еще более ранние периоды, но они слишком далеко от нас, а вот эти чуть ближе. Интересно было бы обсудить с кем-то эти сериалы, а то в моем окружении их никто не видел(((😓
😓
А я очень люблю и уже по 5-му кругу пересматриваю😍
