Shrewsbury Castle, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, 1894. Creator: Unknown

Shrewsbury Castle, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, 1894. View of the castle with the Clement memorial obelisk, erected in 1873, to the memory of surgeon and politician William James Clement. The Norman castle was founded by Roger de Montgomery in c1070. Much of it was demolished during the rebuilding and strengthening of the castle by Edward I in c1300, when an outer bailey was also added. It was never used as a fortress after this date, and over the centuries was allowed to fall into disrepair. Elizabeth I gave the castle to the bailiffs and burgesses of Shrewsbury in 1586, and little was done to the building until the Civil War, when further alterations were made. It was captured by the Parliamentarians in 1645, and it was not until 1660, when Charles II was restored to the throne, that it was returned to the ownership of the crown. From Beautiful Britain; views of our stately homes. [The Werner Company of Chicago, 1894]

The death of Harold at the Battle of Hastings, 1066, (1944). Creator: Unknown Featured Print

The death of Harold at the Battle of Hastings, 1066, (1944). Creator: Unknown

The death of Harold at the Battle of Hastings, 1066, (1944). The Latin reads: 'Harold Rex Interfectus Est' - King Harold is killed. English forces led by King Harold II fought the invading Normans under William I. It has been suggested that the 'arrow in the eye' account of Harold's death was deliberately invented by the Normans as an attempt to legitimise William's siezure of the English crown, by portraying Harold as having been 'struck down' by God as punishment for his breaking of his oath to William. Detail from the Bayeux Tapestry, the famous embroidery made a few years after the Norman invasion of England in 1066. From "Battlefields in Britain', by C. V. Wedgwood. [Collins, London, 1944]
