Nursery Rhymes- Lyrics and Origins!(1361 clicks)
The origins of most nursery rhymes reflect events in history and where available we have included both the meanings and origins of everyone's favourite nursery rhymes. Two examples of these types of nursery rhymes origins are 'Ring a Ring o Rosies' which refers to the Bubonic plague and 'Remember Remember' nursery rhymes which allude to Guy Fawkes' foiled attempt to blow up the English Houses of Parliament! Many of the words and nursery rhymes lyrics were used to parody the royal and political events of the day, direct dissent would often be punishable by death! Strange how these events in history are still portrayed through children's nursery rhymes, when for most of us the historical events relationship to the nursery rhymes themselves are long forgotten!

This thesis is a critical examination of the dissolution of the monasteries under the reign of Henry VIII, and the key role the dissolution played in his plan for the Reformation in England. In addition, the present study found that by closely studying certain documents, we gain an understanding of Henry VIII's strategy and attitude that was also important to his plan for initiating reform in the 1530's. Though there is a complete analysis of several of the most relevant scholars, the present study builds upon the theories and assertions of these experts with unique suggestions in reference to frequently cited documents, as well as discussion of primary source material that has not been cited by leading scholars. These documents lead to an advanced understanding of Henry VIII's motives and attitude, and the concerns he had as the monarch that began the Reformation in England.The Raising of the Mary Rose(1271 clicks)

The history of the Victorian Turkish bath is virtually uncharted, so the website is an attempt to interest historians in an aspect of Victorian life which has been almost totally forgotten.
David Urquhart's reintroduction of the so-called Turkish (actually Roman) bath into the British Isles in 1856 was largely achieved by the Turkish Bath Movement allied to his Foreign Affairs Committees and promulgated in the "Sheffield Free Press" and the "Free Press".
Created by a retired media resources librarian and historian who has been interested in the subject since 1990, this comprehensive site has six main sections : Introductory; History of the Turkish bath; Turkish bath topics (eg, caricatures and cartoons, hydropathy,the earliest Turkish bath photos?); Some Turkish bath personalities; Turkish bath companies; Turkish bath directory (listing more than 600 establishments and with brief articles about an increasing number of them).
In addition there are over 300 illustrations in both thumbnail and enlarged versions, footnotes, bibliography, illustrations index, and two-way acknowledgments. There is also a listing of the 21 Turkish baths which are still open with contact numbers and addresses, and a Stop Press column of recent news.
