'''Stanage Edge''', or simply '''Stanage''' (from "stone edge") is a gritstone escarpment in the English (England) Peak District, famous as a location for climbing.

It initially follows the High Peak Trail along a disused railway passing through the limestone of the White Peak. (An alternative starting point is the site of the former Hartington railway station, utilizing a short section of the Tissington Trail before joining the High Peak Trail at Parsley Hay.) Beyond the limestone plateau is the millstone grit of the Dark or High Peak (High Peak, Derbyshire) area, and the trail follows the line of a packhorse road from Tideswell, via Peak Forest to Hayfield, where it briefly follows the line of another converted railway, the Sett Valley Trail.


Assonet, Massachusetts

used by southern New England Algonquian (Algonquian languages), means "stone". The -et is a locative suffix: "at the place of the stone". As the region is mainly a tidal marsh, the stone referenced is most likely Dighton Rock in the Taunton River next to Assonet Neck. The entire region was sold to the English in 1659 by the Wampanoag (Wampanoag people)s, but, due to the Algonquian (Algonquian peoples) mobile way of life and the splitting and recombining of social units, the Nipmucs may have been subject to or at the time part of the Wampanoags. The English settlement remained for many years a small fishing and farming village, growing to be Freetown (Freetown, Massachusetts)'s more industrious side by the end of the 18th century. By the end of the 19th century, Assonet had begun to slowly return to its origins, having less and less industry in town. At the beginning of the 21st century, the village has once again begun to expand rapidly. 17th century Assonet was settled on April 2, 1659, but a string of wars between English (Great Britain) settlers and the local Wampanoag Indians (Wampanoag people), including King Philip's War, prevented much permanent settlement until later. History shows the area existed as a proprietary (Proprietary community) settlement as early as 1680, and in 1683 Assonet and Fall River (Fall River, Massachusetts) were incorporated as the Town of Freetown (Freetown, Massachusetts), named as such because its settlers were Freemen (Freeman (colonial)). The earliest records of the town, from approximately 1680-1685, have been lost. Since then, records have been kept and maintained to trace back the town's legacy. Little development occurred after the incorporation of the town, other than the construction of houses and smaller businesses. 18th century Assonet became a prominent commercial fishing port in Southeastern Massachusetts in the 18th century, best known for its trout. Industry had also begun to develop, including grist mills, sawmills and a blacksmith's shop. As the century progressed, the villagers began to fall under the same strains as the rest of the colonists (thirteen colonies). Assonet was far enough east that it avoided many of the problems faced during the French and Indian War, but did feature in the Revolutionary War (American Revolutionary War). Skirmishes were fought in Assonet, and the Battle of Freetown was fought on the outskirts of the village in present-day Fall River. The main settled area of the village was known to support the British, even harboring a general before he fled to Newport, Rhode Island. The white chimneys with black rings on many of the oldest houses are indicative of homes that supported the British. As the 18th century closed, churches and other more prominent buildings began to pop up around the village, including the 1794 construction of Village School, then the office of a Raynham (Raynham, Massachusetts) lawyer. 19th century frame left North Church circa c. (Image:North Church, Assonet, Mass.jpg) 1900. The 19th century was perhaps the most industrious period in the history of Assonet. The village developed rapidly, with its combination of railroads (Rail transport), ships, its position on the stagecoach and mail (United States Postal Service) routes, and its factories (factory). The current Route 79 (Massachusetts Route 79) roughly follows the mail and stagecoach route from Rhode Island to Boston (Boston, Massachusetts), and the Green Dragon Tavern on South Main Street was a popular stopover along the route. The downtown area boasted shipbuilding and was an import export port, as well as a successful fishing industry. frame right John M. Deane (Image:JohnMDeane.jpg) was a native of Assonet, and a recipient of the Medal of Honor. The N. R. Davis Gun Manufactory, located near and on a portion of where Hathaway Park now sits, opened and provided many weapons to Union soldiers during the Civil War (American Civil War). Also built was the Crystal Springs Bleachery and Dying Company, which brought millhousing to a small area of the village, and employed many from town and neighboring Fall River (Fall River, Massachusetts), also known for industry. North Church (1809), Town Hall (1888), and the Guilford H. Hathaway Library (1895) were all constructed in the same small area on Taunton (Taunton, Massachusetts) Hill, and complimented the Village School nicely. The Town Hall has served as the municipal office building (1888–present), meeting hall (1888–1976), library (1888–1895), police station (1888–1978), and a variety of other functions. The second floor, literally a hall, was subdivided into office space in the mid-1970s. The Guilford Hathaway Library (b. 1895) served as the town's only library from its construction until the James White Library opened in East Freetown (East Freetown, Massachusetts) in 1947. The first Post Office in town opened in Assonet in 1811, and has operated continuously since then, first in a razed building on the corner of Elm and North Main Streets, later in a second razed building, and since 1962 at the facility on South Main Street near the former Assonet Star Market. The ZIP Code for Assonet is 02702. 20th century frame right This photo from a 1902 postcard shows Profile Rock, which is said to be the image of Chief Massasoit (Image:Profile Rock (Assonet).jpg). In the mid-20th century, Assonet began to remove itself from the commercial industrial scene. Most of its mills closed during this period, following the Second World War. The N. R. Davis Gun Factory burned to the ground in 1925; and the Crystal Springs Bleachery, now New England Textile, burned in 1955. (Remnants of the latter can be found by Mill Pond.) The former Monument Manufacturing Company on Mill & Locust Sts. was the largest domestic producer of sleeping bags during World War II. In the postwar period, the majority of villagers sought work outside of town, and farming also came back into common practice. This reverse trend would not last long. By the 1990s, the village began to develop again as the region was seen as a "great escape" for upperclass Boston workers. Next to the Hathaway Library is a local Verizon station, which is the home of one of the first regional dialing systems. Not far away is Freetown Fire Department Company 1, constructed in 1948. 21st century The 21st century has brought a renewed spirit to Assonet. The Stop & Shop Supermarket Company (Stop & Shop) opened a new 1.3 million square foot (120,000 m 2 ) distribution center on near Marcus Morton image 50px Seal of the Town of Freetown (Image:Seal of Freetown, Massachusetts.gif) * To be merged or split (updated by bot) ** 253 - 180 Solutions, 2002 Mitt Romney residency issue, 3C Highway, 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, Abu Ayyub al-Masri, Abu Hamza al-Muhajir, Adjudication, Amana, Iowa, Amana Colonies, American football defensive schemes, American football strategy, American trade, Andre Iguodala, Ann Furedi, Arizona Football All America, Arizona Head Coaching Records, Arizona Wildcat Bowl History, Arizona Wildcats, Arizona Wildcats Football, Ashley Pérez Moza, Assonet, Massachusetts, Avenue of the Saints, Banking in the United States, Barbara La Marr, Basic School, Beale's Cut, BearingPoint, Bell Helicopter Textron, Big Sunflower River, Bingham Canyon, Black Hills, Black Patch Tobacco Wars, Blizzard v.

Samarkand

''' ( from Sogdian (Sogdian language): "Stone Fort" or "Rock Town"), alternatively '''Samarqand''' or '''Samarcand''', traditionally was the second-largest city in Uzbekistan and the capital of Samarqand Province. It is now the nation's third largest, after fast-growing Namangan in the Ferghana Valley.

Alexander the Great took it in 329 BC. The name probably originates in the Sogdian (Sogdian language) words ''asmara'', "stone", "rock" and ''kand'', "fort", "town".
