Bernicia

Norse domination of the Irish Sea (Scandinavian Scotland) including extensive settlement in the Isle of Man and in the now English region of Cumbria immediately south of Galloway. frameless right 240px (File:Gwynedd.620.jpg) On the accession of Beli's son Iago (Iago ap Beli) in c.599 the situation in Britain had deteriorated significantly. Most of the area today called northern England and been overrun by the invading Angles of Deira and Bernicia who were in the process of forming a united Northumbrian kingdom. In a rare show of common interest it appears Gwynedd and neighbouring Powys (Kingdom of Powys) acted in concert to rebuff the Anglican advance but were defeated at the Battle of Chester in 613. Following this catastrophe the approximate borders of northern Wales were set with the city of Caerlleon (now called Chester) and the surrounding Cheshire Plain falling under the control of the Anglo-Saxons. Most importantly the Britons of Wales were now cut off from their kin in Cumbria and Strathclyde. Towards the end of the 6th century, Elmet came under increasing pressure from the expanding Anglo-Saxon (Anglo-Saxon England) kingdoms of Deira and Mercia. Forces from Elmet joined the ill-fated alliance in 590 against the Angles of Bernicia who had been making massive inroads further to the north. During this war it is thought Elmet's king Gwallog was killed. The northern alliance collapsed after Urien of Rheged was murdered and a feud broke out between two of its key members. It appears that after this, and the subsequent unification of the Anglian kingdom of Northumbria, Elmet was compelled to construct a series of defensive ditches to the north and west of Barwick-in-Elmet in an apparent attempt to provide an extra line of defence for their king's hill fort - the remains of which can still be seen in this village. Bishops *Eata (Eata of Hexham), 'bishop of Bernicia', with his seat at Hexham and or Lindisfarne, died 685, succeeded by John of Beverley (Bede, Ecclesiastical History IV.12 (Wikisource:Ecclesiastical History of the English People Book 4#12)) *Trumbert, 682, as 'bishop of Hexham', at the same time as Trumwine's installation, with Eata continuing as bishop at Lindisfarne In any case, Penda and Cadwallon together made war against the Northumbrians. A battle was fought at Hatfield Chase (Battle of Hatfield Chase) on October 12, 633 which ended in the defeat and death of Edwin and his son Osfrith. Bede, ''H. E.'', Book II, chapter 20. After this, the Kingdom of Northumbria fell into disarray, divided between its sub-kingdoms of Deira (Deira (kingdom)) and Bernicia, Bede, ''H. E.'', Book III, chapter 1. but the war continued: according to the ''Anglo-Saxon Chronicle'', "Cadwallon and Penda went and did for the whole land of Northumbria". ''Anglo-Saxon Chronicle'', manuscript E, year 633. Translated by Michael Swanton (1996, 1998). Bede says that Cadwallon was besieged by the new king of Deira, Osric (Osric of Deira), "in a strong town"; Cadwallon, however, "sallied out on a sudden with all his forces, by surprise, and destroyed him Osric and all his army." The south-east had been absorbed by the English (England) Kingdom of Bernicia Northumbria (Bernicia) in the seventh century. Galloway in the south west was a Lordship with some regality. In a Galwegian (Galwegian Gaelic) charter dated to the reign of Fergus (Fergus of Galloway), the Galwegian ruler styled himself ''rex Galwitensium'', King of Galloway. Oram (2000) p. 62 In the north east the ruler of Moray (Mormaer of Moray) was called not only "king" in both Scandinavian and Irish sources, but before Máel Snechtai (Máel Snechtai of Moray), "King of Alba". For Findláech (Findláech of Moray), ri Alban, ''Annals of Ulster'', ''s.a.'' 1020; Anderson (1922) vol. i, p. 551. For Máel Coluim (Máel Coluim of Moray), ''Annals of Tigernach'', ''s.a.'' 1029; Anderson (1922) vol. i, p. 571. The ''Annals of Tigernach'' though styles Findláech merely ''Mormaer''. thumb right A digital reconstruction of Anglo-Saxon Yeavering created by Past Perfect, a project run jointly by Durham and Northumberland County Councils. (File:Yeavering Digital Image.jpg) In the Early Mediaeval period, Yeavering was situated in the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Bernicia. Hope-Taylor 1977 (#Hop77). p. 16. Welsh tradition regards Rhydderch as one of the northern British kings who fought against the early Anglo-Saxon (Anglo-Saxons) realm of Bernicia. The ''Historia Brittonum'' depicts him as an enemy of several Bernician kings of the late sixth century, but the theatre of the wars between them is not identified. It is said he joined with Urien of Rheged and Morcant Bulc in their ill-fated alliance: In 629 (629 inIreland), the Dal nAraide appear to have defeated the Dál Riata at Fid Eóin, killing Connad Cerr, although the victor is named as Maél Caích, perhaps an otherwise unknown brother of Congal. AU 629.1; AT 631.1; Mac Niocaill, pg.95, Byrne, pg.109 As well as their king, the Dál Riata suffered the loss of two grandsons of Áedán mac Gabráin and the Bernician exile Osric (perhaps a son of Æthelfrith (Æthelfrith of Bernicia)) was also killed. It is possible that upon becoming King of Ulaid, Congal resigned the affairs of Dal nAraide to Maél Caích mac Scandail who met opposition from other Criuthne led by Dícuil mac Echach who may have been a member of the Latharna of Larne (a Dal nAraide tribe).

Pembroke and the title of earl, which his father-in-law had enjoyed, until 1199, as it had been taken into the king's hand in 1154. However, the marriage transformed the landless knight from a minor family into one of the richest men in the kingdom, a sign of his power and prestige at court. They had five sons and five daughters, and have numerous descendants (see below). William made numerous improvements to his wife's lands, including extensive additions to Pembroke Castle and Chepstow Castle. Early life Whitelaw was born in Nairn, in northeast Scotland. He never knew his father, who was killed in the First World War when he was a baby. He was educated at Winchester College and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he won a blue (University Sporting Blue) for golf and joined the Officer Training Corps. By chance he was in a summer camp in 1939 on the outbreak of the Second World War and was granted a regular, not wartime, commission (Officer (armed forces)) in the British Army, in the Scots Guards, later serving in the 6th Guards Tank Brigade (British 6th Guards Tank Brigade), a separate unit from the Guards Armoured Division. He commanded Churchill tanks in Normandy during the Second World War (World War II) and during Operation Bluecoat in late July 1944, his was the first Allied unit to encounter German (Germany) Jagdpanther tank destroyers, being attacked by three out of the twelve of these vehicles which were in Normandy.

The city centre has seen significant work done to prioritise pedestrian access, including extensive pedestrianisation, excellent links from the railway station to the city centre and a comprehensive map and signage system. Even outside the central area, Sheffield is pleasantly walkable, with both the Don Valley attractions (1–4 miles) and the Peak District (from 6


Cairo

. They are a minority with their own language, churches, and social institutions. The number of Armenians in Egypt has decreased due to migrations to other countries and integration into the rest of Egyptian society, including extensive intermarriage with Muslims and Copts. Today they number about 6000, much smaller than a few generations ago. They are concentrated in Cairo and Alexandria, the two largest cities. Economically the Egyptian Armenians have tended to be self-employed businessmen or craftsmen and to have more years of education than the Egyptian average. Zhory, Ayman. Armenians in Egypt. 2005. After the Armenian genocide: forced migration A landmark of the Armenian migration (Armenian diaspora) is the Armenian Genocide which started in 24 April 1915 (Deportation of Armenian notables in 1915). The Armenian communities (Armenian diaspora) in Egypt received a large percentage of the refugees and survivors of the massacres and genocide. They increased the numbers of the Armenians in Egypt to reach its peak in 1927 census data where their total number was 17,188 inhabitants most of whom were concentrated in Cairo and Alexandria (Al-Imam, 1999 and 2003). However, Armenians in Egypt managed to cope with their new lives in Egypt to the extent that Egypt, with its strong Armenian community, was the guiding head of the Armenians in the Arab world until the mid-twentieth century. After the 1952 Nasser’s revolution (1952 Revolution) and the socialist tendency of this revolution and given the fact that most of the Egyptian Armenians at that time were working in the private sector as self-employers in most cases, a reverse migration stream was observed among them where they started to migrate (Human migration) to the West, mainly to Europe, the United States, and Australia. In addition to four locations in Turkey, regional editions are printed and distributed in Australia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Germany, Romania, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Macedonia (Republic of Macedonia), Turkmenistan, and the US (United States).

The '''Institut Français d’Archéologie Orientale''' (or '''IFAO''') , also known as the '''French Institute for Oriental Archaeology in Cairo''' is a French research institute based in Cairo, Egypt, dedicated to the study of the archaeology, history and languages of the various periods of Egypt's civilisation. History The IFAO was created on 28 December 1880 by a signed decree of the French Minister of Public Instruction and Fine Arts (List of Education Ministers of France) Jules Ferry, which created a permanent Mission in Cairo, intended as a counterpart in Egypt of the French Schools of Athens (French School of Athens) (Ecole française d'Athènes) and of Rome (French School of Rome) (Ecole française de Rome), under the name of the "French School of Cairo" (''École française du Caire''). ::11–29 September 2003 *Cairo, on the Ayyoubide (Ayyubid dynasty) Wall (mediaeval) ::12 April - 12 June 2003 Rumbold was an attaché at The Hague (1889–1890) and then served in Cairo, Tehran, Vienna, Munich between 1900 and 1913. Rumbold was then moved to Tokyo (1909–1913) and then to Berlin (1913–1914). After the First World War Rumbold was the British ambassador to Constantinople (1920–1924), during which he signed the Lausanne Treaty on behalf of the British Empire. He was then ambassador to Madrid (1924–1928) and then went on to his last job, which was ambassador in Berlin from 1928 to 1933. - Cairo

If this means complete power, as opposed to having to deal with the checks and balances (w:checks and balances) built into our federal government, this is some of what I'd do: I'd end abortion and all the precipitating factors leading to it (poverty, dysfunctional family dynamics, relaxed sexual mores, alcohol and drug addiction...). I'd mobilize a set of dramatic initiatives to, not just curb global warming (w:global warming), but to actually start to reverse it. I would unilaterally disarm our nuclear weapons. I'd stop the production of nuclear energy. (Anybody hear of Chernobyl (w:Chernobyl)?) I would grant amnesty and family reunification to illegal immigrants (w:Illegal Immigration in the United States). (During a talk at an immigration rally in Arizona several years ago, I said we walked through the slums of w:Juarez, Mexico Juarez , where violence is off the charts and many of the children are extremely hungry. If I was their parent, I'd do everything I could to get these children out of harms way and get them something to eat – even if it meant risking crossing the border illegally.) I would end the death penalty. Also in Arizona, I read a newspaper story about a death penalty protester who posed: “Why do we kill people who kill people to show that killing people is wrong?” Good question. I would increase, exponentially, American foreign aid (it is currently only 4% of the budget) to try to help stem world hunger much more – 24,000 people starve to death every day in the world – and to help realize Habitat for Humanity (w:Habitat for Humanity)'s goal of providing adequate housing, (“…for every person in the world.”) I would bring peace to urban war zones around the country. (In part of this effort, our family moved into a dangerous part of Cleveland, Ohio, to be part of the solution.) I would end w:homelessness homelessness . (We take homeless people into our home. And we will be doing the same in the West Wing (w:West Wing). I mean the Lincoln bedroom (w:Lincoln Bedroom) is free, as an example.) I would tremendously jack down and simplify the economy, shifting America back to much more of a local production for local consumption orientation, like it was in the “old days.” I would mobilize efforts for a tremendous come back of the small family farm and the practice of growing organically. This was once the backbone of our country, I told the newspaper Country Today in Wisconsin. And it should be again. I would get people to tighten their belts and pay off the w:National Debt National Debt so our children don't inherit it. During a talk at the University of Notre Dame (w:University of Notre Dame) recently, I said I would redirect the technical smarts at NASA (w:NASA) toward coming up with better water filtration systems, solar panel (w:solar panel)s, wind turbine (w:wind turbine)s..., as opposed to working on things like going to space destinations where we: can't breathe the air, there's no gravity and there's no food! “That might be, oh, a hint God doesn't want us there,” I said. I would give some of the land back to the Native Americans (w:Native Americans) so it's equitable, like it should have been from the beginning. And I would give the African Americans (w:African Americans) tangible reparations for past atrocities (w:Reparations for slavery) and the ongoing trans-generational problems slavery (w:slavery) caused. And, I would ensure – as impossible as this seems – that the Cleveland Browns (w:Cleveland Browns) had a winning season, soon... For a look at how I would actually try to make a lot of this happen, the Cleveland Browns notwithstanding, go to my rather extensive position papers at ''Atlantis'' lifted off in fair weather at 2:20 p.m. EDT (1820 UTC) from the w:Kennedy Space Center Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral (w:Cape Canaveral), Florida. The launch was viewed by over 40,000 spectators at Kennedy, including a small group chosen by NASA (w:NASA) for a space "tweetup (w:Twitter)". Carrying six veteran astronauts and an assortment of parts for the International Space Station (w:International Space Station) (ISS), the shuttle took off without any delays. This mission, scheduled to take twelve days, is the aging shuttle's 32nd voyage into space of its 25-year career.
