Roman[ edit ] The capital of the Iceni tribe was a settlement located near to the village of Caistor St. According to a local rhyme, the demise of Venta Icenorum led to the development of Norwich: There are two suggested models of development for Norwich. It is possible that three separate early Anglo-Saxon settlements, one on the north of the river and two either side on the south, joined together as they grew or that one Anglo-Saxon settlement, on the north of the river, emerged in the mid-7th century after the abandonment of the previous three. The ancient city was a thriving centre for trade and commerce in East Anglia in when it was raided and burnt by Swein Forkbeard the Viking king of Denmark. Mercian coins and shards of pottery from the Rhineland dating from the 8th century suggest that long-distance trade was happening long before this. Between and , Norwich became fully established as a town, with its own mint. The word Norvic appears on coins across Europe minted during this period, in the reign of King Athelstan. The Vikings were a strong cultural influence in Norwich for 40 to 50 years at the end of the 9th century, setting up an Anglo -Scandinavian district near the north end of present day King Street. At the time of the Norman Conquest the city was one of the largest in England.

A new study has demonstrated for the first time that snails will find their way home if they are moved. Scroll down for video They may be famous for carrying their houses on their backs, but it seems that snails have a homing instinct towards their own territories stock image THE STUDY Researchers collected 64 snails around a single garden, and painted them fluorescent colours, depending on which area of the garden they came from. A control group of snails from Cornwall were also included.

The snails were placed in the middle of the garden and observed overnight. Results showed that the Cornish snails headed west – in the right direction to get home. The different coloured snails all then moved to their respective corner of the garden. Professor Dave Hodgson, who led the study, said: The team collected 64 snails around the garden, and painted them different fluorescent colours, depending on which area of the garden they came from.

A fifth group of snails, which came from Cornwall, were also included as a control.

No trains will run between King’s Lynn and Ely on these days. Services to and from Ely and Waterbeach will also be affected. Valid rail tickets will be accepted on the rail replacement bus services.

History[ edit ] The Medway area has a long and varied history dominated originally by the city of Rochester and later by the naval and military establishments principally in Chatham and Gillingham. Rochester was established on an Iron Age site by the Romans , [5] who called it Durobrivae meaning “stronghold by the bridge” , to control the point where Watling Street now the A2 crossed the River Medway.

Rochester later became a walled town and, under later Saxon influence, a mint was established here. The first cathedral was built by Bishop Justus in and rebuilt under the Normans by Bishop Gundulf , who also built the castle that stands opposite the cathedral. Rochester was also an important point for people travelling the Pilgrims’ Way , which stretches from Winchester to the shrine of Thomas Becket at Canterbury. The Pilgrims’ Way crossed the Medway near Cuxton.

In Rochester, parts of the Roman city wall are still in evidence, and the city has many fine buildings, such as the Guildhall today a museum , which was built in and is among the finest 17th-century civic buildings in Kent; [6] the Corn Exchange, built in , originally the Butcher’s Market; the small Tudor house of Watts Charity endowed by Sir Richard Watts to house “six poor travelers” for one night each; Satis House and Old Hall, both visited by Queen Elizabeth I , built in It stands on the Great Lines between Chatham and Gillingham.

David Hey My thanks to John Parker for his generous assistance in the compilation of this page Like it or not, the ageing process gathers momentum at an alarming rate as you get older; by the time you reach the ‘Big Six-‘0’ the years are flying by! One of the best ways I’ve found to occupy retirement is to lose myself in those things that resonate most from childhood. I’m harking back to a more innocent age when countless thousands of youngsters with notebooks and pencils gathered on station platforms to collect engine numbers.

This is why I wanted to launch a website on the subject, though I had no idea where it might lead. Well, having started the ball rolling in the site has just grown and grown.
