Share15 Shares 8K Man has been documenting history with the written word for centuries. This list looks at ten incredibly important documents and the secrets they have kept hidden until recently. Translating the Bible into English was once deadly work, and by the time Henry VIII started re-writing centuries of religious beliefs to suit his own needs and was well on his way to making the country Protestant, owning an unapproved version of the Bible could earn a person a death sentence. In , an official and authorized version of the Bible was published, complete with an introduction by the king himself. Today, there are only seven copies left, and almost five centuries after the books came off the press, scholars have found that one of them has a series of annotations hidden in the margins. Those photos were then run through a computer program that would drop out all of the text that had been printed and leave behind only the handwritten words.

Some would scream and cry as they were taken to the noose, while others would greet their final moments with resigned silence. For one man, being sentenced to the hangman’s noose was something he would face three times in a series of bungled executions, to live to tell the tale and survive.

Thousands of people would gather to watch the hangings of criminals in a leafy corner of Johnstown in Wales, that would became a hotspot for executions. Such was the draw of a public hanging, with justice being seen to be done, the last public execution saw a staggering 10, people pack along the street to witness the spectacle. Those with the financial means could also pay for a premium spot for the best vantage points from the windows facing the gaol.

While standing in front of it in the cathedral waiting for the group who had asked me to talk to turn up I was dismayed to realise that my thoughts about it had undergone a change since I last tried to make sense of the contradictory aspects of its design. For some time I have been constrained, by details of its appearance, to believe that originally it was painted to form the major element in the centre of an assemblage to be placed at the back of a Western European altar, a reredos.

I was also impelled to believe that it was of British late medieval and possibly south Welsh origin. Talking about the painting while standing in front of the real thing on the wall it was disconcerting to realise that there are more ideas in it that might be derived from Byzantine sources than I had previously allowed and for some reason that is not immediately obvious, someone at some time had decided to convert a Catholic Gothic panel painting into an Orthodox icon of a Greek type.

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David were successful with an application to purchase and refurbish the old Carmarthen Journal offices on King Street, Carmarthen to become a Welsh Centre at the heart of Carmarthen town.

This is my latest attempt at portraying the British Glacial Limits for the Devensian and Anglian glaciations — along the southern margins of the British and Irish Ice Sheet. I think it accords pretty closely with the evidence on the ground and with the glacial modelling which I have covered quite extensively on this blog over the past couple of years. Current dating puts the Anglian at around , years ago, and the Devensian at about 20, years ago.

There may well have been another glacial episode between these two — currently referred to as either the Saalian or Wolstonian Glaciation. Many authors have attempted to map the limit of that glacial episode — broadly, it seems to have been more extensive than the Devensian glaciation, and less extensive than the Anglian. However, the line drawn by Gibbard and Clark is so unsatisfactory, in so many ways, that I have left it off my reconstruction above.

Let’s just say for the moment that the events — and the deposits — of that episode are complicating factors, and that they will one day get sorted out

He subdued the Silures , Demetae and other hostile tribes of Roman Wales , establishing a new base at Caerleon for Legio II Augusta and a network of smaller Roman forts fifteen to twenty kilometres apart for his Roman auxiliary units. During his tenure, he probably established the fort at Pumsaint in west Wales, largely to exploit the gold deposits at Dolaucothi. Frontinus later restored the Aqueducts of Rome and wrote the definitive treatise on 1st century Roman aqueducts, the two volume De aquaeductu.

That gold occurred here is shown by the discovery of a hoard of gold ornaments in the 18th century. Objects found included a wheel brooch and snake bracelets, so named because they were soft enough to be coiled around the arm for display. All the objects are now held in the British Museum , and displayed in the Romano-British gallery.

Jane Edwards Edward Edwards Two copies of the marriage register had to be kept, one of which was to be forwarded to the Superintendent Registrar when full. In many rural parishes in Wales the marriage register introduced in was not fully used in April when all the duplicate marriage registers were called in upon the introduction of bilingual registers. The general history of the registers has been related, a more detailed description will now be given of their contents.

Before the introduction of registers with prescribed forms of entry the form and the details given in the entries often varied a great deal even within a register volume. Many registers were kept in a very unsatisfactory manner. Sometimes the entries for baptisms, marriages and burials were intermixed, at other times the different types of entry were made on separate pages or in separate sections within a register volume.

In some registers the entries were made in three columns on the same page. When the different types of entry were entered on separate pages it is often difficult to be sure of the correct date of an entry because the entries for baptisms and burials are far more numerous than the entries for marriages.
