Depressing adventures in the damp caves of professionally published nonsense. It’s the story of how she agreed to be the subject of what turned out to be a deeply misleading Mail article, and her subsequent fight against it. I grew up with the Daily Mail. When I was younger and living with my parents, they read it every day. So when, in , I received a request on Response Source an online resource for journalists to request information from PR companies from a freelance journalist working for the Daily Mail looking for people who had left the city to live in the country and the benefits it had brought, I decided to respond. What followed was a catalogue of events that proved just how little regard the Daily Mail has for the people it relies on for its content. Some might argue that the celebrities the Daily Mail and other tabloids pick apart on a daily basis deserve the negative coverage they get.

He was to be given the freedom of the Royal Burgh of Ayr, and Mrs Carnegie was to perform the honours at the laying of a commemorative stone at the library. The platform party at the laying of a memorial stone not currently visible at the partially-completed Ayr Carnegie Library on 5 October Andrew Carnegie stands between the only two ladies on the platform. On the right is his wife Louise Whitfield who performed the ceremony. Provost Robert Shankland is the bearded gentleman standing behind Mrs Carnegie — he opened the building on 2 September The library committee at their 2 September meeting must therefore have been especially pleased to note among the latest donations a signed Burns manuscript addressed to a Mr James Watson of Ayr.
The Edinburgh manuscript collector and dealer James Mackenzie had sent it via an Ayr customer, solicitor Robert Goudie, to be presented to the library. The decoration above the main entrance of Ayr Carnegie Library includes the carved heads of Robert Burns left and the engineer James Watt right. His donation to Ayr was sent to the National Museum of Antiquities in Edinburgh and to the British Library for examination, and both replies expressed grave reservations as to its alleged attribution to Burns.
Over the past few years a large number of manuscripts purporting to have been written by a wide range of famous literary and historical figures had been appearing for sale in Edinburgh. Their claims to authenticity seldom survived expert scrutiny, and this was beginning to attract the attention of the press. Letters accompanying some of the items in question were reproduced, and the handwriting was recognised as that of a certain Alexander Howland Smith.
Smith was arrested in December , and the full story began to emerge. Many turned out to be of historical interest, and he made a tidy sum selling them to dealers.

Kodi has been in the news a lot recently due to the crackdown on the sale of pre-loaded TV set-top boxes containing premium content. First of all, Kodi is not illegal. However, it does have the ability to run third-party plugins that in many instances make infringing content available to the user. These can store your own content and access online media using different apps. It is also legal to sell devices with Kodi pre-installed on them. The problem arises when Kodi is used to access content which is copyrighted and not legal to use – usually paid for content.
People can either do this themselves, or they can buy boxes which are pre-loaded with third-party plugins and add-ons that allow users to stream pirated content to their TV.
Toponymy[ edit ] The name Kirkcaldy means “place of the hard fort” or “place of Caled’s fort”.

While most attention will continue to focus on the fictional hero Uhtred, his story is played out against a political background where the main protagonist is the brooding and bookish mastermind Alfred the Great, vividly portrayed in the series by David Dawson. But was Alfred the Great really that great? If we judge him on the basis of new findings in landscape archaeology that are radically changing our understanding of warfare in the Viking Age, it would seem not.
It looks like Alfred was a good propagandist rather than a visionary military leader. Alfred the Great statue, Winchester. Oft defeated by the great army of the Vikings, he took refuge in a remote part of Somerset before rallying the English army in and defeating the Vikings at Edington. It was not this one victory that made Alfred great, according to his biographer Asser , but the military reforms Alfred implemented after Edington. In creating a system of strongholds, a longer-serving army and new naval forces, Asser argues that Alfred put in place systems which meant that the Vikings would never win again.
In doing so, he secured his legacy. It is a well-known story , but how accurate is it? Research by a team at UCL and another at the University of Nottingham into the archaeology and place-name evidence for late Anglo-Saxon civil defence presents a slightly different picture. This idea rests largely on a text known as the Burghal Hidage, which which lists the names of 33 strongholds in Old English burhs across southern England and the taxes assigned to their garrisons, recorded as numbers of hides a unit of land.
Over the past 40 years, much archaeological evidence has been gathered about the Burghal Hidage strongholds, many of which were former Roman towns or Iron Age hill forts that were reused or refurbished as Anglo-Saxon military sites.

The Whitby coast is known for ammonites, tightly coiled fossilised shells of sea creatures that lived millions of years ago. To explain their abundance before fossils were understood, the story developed that the site Hilda had selected for her monastery at Whitby was overrun with snakes. Hilda prayed that the snakes would be made as harmless as the stones of the ground, and the snakes gathered at the cliffs, coiled up and turned to stone!
Etheldreda wished from an early age to devote her life to God and skilfully persuaded her two husbands, who were both powerful kings with desires for heirs, to allow her to live separately from them. A friend of Cuthbert, Eltheldreda used the lands she was given by her husbands to establish monasteries at Hexham and Ely, contributing greatly to the early foundations of Christianity in the North East.
Distressed, it was only when she repented that she was freed. The tragic story of Maryne shows how some women attempted to circumvent restrictions on women. She was accused of fathering a child and treated badly, forced to live in a hovel by the side of the monastery. It was only after her death that her gender was revealed, proving her innocence. Fritheswith is the patron saint of Oxford who founded a convent there in the eighth century.
Like many female saints she is linked to miracles of healing, associated with a spring of water said to have appeared after she prayed. Her shrines became known for miracles of healing, and some of her relics were brought to Durham in the eleventh century.
