The York Helmet at The Yorkshire Museum is the most outstanding object of the Anglo-Saxon period to survive in Europe. It dates to approximately 750 to 775. This iron and brass helmet was discovered when struck by the claw of a mechanical digger in 1982 – luckily the operator stopped to check what had been hit. by lilian

The Dutch captured the British colony of Suriname during the Second Anglo-Dutch War(1667), and it was developed as a plantation slave society. It was a primary destination for the Dutch slave trade, yet unusually it never experienced a general slave rebellion. The regime was one of extreme and deliberate brutality, even by the standards of the time. by minerva

Incunabula is a book that was printed before 1501, during the earliest period of typography, in Europe. The crucial fact is that it is not handwritten, it is printed. These books can also be called incunable or incunabulum (plural: incunabula or incunables). This is basically a concept of “early printing” and the term incunabula was first used by Bernard von Mallinckrodt in De Ortu ac Progressu Artis Typographicae (Of the rise and progress of the typographic art), Dissertatio Historica (1639). by nanette

Edgar the Peaceful 959-975 House of Wessex. Second son of Edmund I. Well educated. Very handsome, but short; this did not stop him from having many mistresses.  Restored peace with the church and throughout the kingdom.  England was unified as a kingdom and organised into the shires that still exist today.  His coronation is the first described in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles, and is the ceremony followed since then to the present day. by Jinx62

Romano-British woodworking plane, found in excavations at Goodmanham, East Yorkshire in 2000. The object is unique in that the body of the plane is made of elephant ivory (the rest is of iron). The plane was found in an enclosure ditch, part of a Romano-British village and although found in a 4th century context, may date to the earlier Roman period. by teri-71

Anglo-Saxon peasants. After the Norman conquest, Anglo-Norman (an insular Scandinavian influenced dialect of French) would persist as the language of administration. It would take some 400 years for the small Norman-French descended aristocracy to adopt the language of the majority (english). Conversely, many French words and spellings would find their way in to the English language, and French would continue to hold a prestige value. -DK by geneva
