Early history[ edit ] John Speed ‘s map of the County Palatine of Lancaster, The county was established in , [4] later than many other counties. During Roman times the area was part of the Brigantes tribal area in the military zone of Roman Britain. In the centuries after the Roman withdrawal in AD the northern parts of the county probably formed part of the Brythonic kingdom of Rheged , a successor entity to the Brigantes tribe. During the mid-8th century, the area was incorporated into the Anglo-Saxon Kingdom of Northumbria , which became a part of England in the 10th century. Modern history[ edit ] The historic county palatine boundaries in red and the ceremonial county in green Lancashire is smaller than its historical extent following a major reform of local government. It did not cover the western part of Todmorden , where the ancient border between Lancashire and Yorkshire passes through the middle of the town. During the 20th century, the county became increasingly urbanised, particularly the southern part. Helens and Wigan were added Blackpool , Southport , and Warrington The county boroughs also had many boundary extensions. The borders around the Manchester area were particularly complicated, with narrow protrusions of the administrative county between the county boroughs — Lees urban district formed a detached part of the administrative county, between Oldham county borough and the West Riding of Yorkshire.

Instead they will be contemplating life in League One as they were relegated on the final day of the regular Championship season despite winning at Brentford. In the end they fell short.

The Bengali student was taken prisoner by the Pakistani girl’s uncle, before her father, brother and cousin all joined in the attack, a court was told. Preston Crown Court heard the boy was escorted to a cul-de-sac, where he was repeatedly kicked in the head, battered with weapons and told: She was a fellow pupil at their high school and the men found pictures of them together on the smartphone, the court was told.

A wellhead platform on fire in the Montara oil field on November 2, Bloomberg Mr Pandjaitan said he was yet to receive a response from Australia. However it is unclear what Senator Brandis could do given a politician has no influence in Australian Federal Court proceedings. Maurice Blackburn class action principal Ben Slade called on the oil rig operator, PTTEP Australasia, to expedite a “fair and compensatory” resolution for the 15, seaweed farmers affected by the oil spill.

Seaweed farmers say the Montara spill devastated their livelihoods. Jewel Topsfield “The company has caused long term suffering and needs to do the responsible thing and remedy this,” he said. In a hearing this week, Maurice Blackburn applied for an extension of the statute of limitation period, which sets a maximum time after an event within which legal proceedings may be initiated. The farmers also didn’t know they had rights under Australian law.

And when year-old Molly Campbell turned up in Lahore — 4, miles away from the home she shared with her mother on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland — it was feared that her Pakistani father was about to force her into marriage with a man twice her age. Then Molly went on television insisting that she was happy and had chosen to live as a Muslim. She became Misbah Ahmed Rana and faded from the headlines. Molly, right, back with her mother Louise. The teenager has returned to Britain to ‘spread her wings’ But last week, four years on from the drama of her disappearance, it was revealed that Molly has turned her back on Pakistan and has returned to Britain, living in a small three-bedroom terrace house in Blackburn, Lancashire, with her sister, two brothers and her toddler niece.

The 8 and the 12, the latter taking a circuitous route via Daubhill, Little Hulton, Walkden, Roe Green and Worsley taking a scheduled 55minutes against the rather tightly timed 38 minutes of the more direct 8. Quite apart from the fascinating stuff we saw and rode on the way up, across and back down again, the Stockport and Manchester Crossleys made a great impression, and so did the great variety of operators working into Manchester, but I remember being especially taken by those lovely Salford Daimlers with their straight staircases, destination-winder trunnions and the no-nonsense, upright Metro-Cammell bodies.

To have lasted so long with such rough treatment these wonderfully characterful vehicles must have been as solidly-built as they looked—or were the fitters kept busy? I bet someone knows! I read that Salford always put their newest buses on the 15, which ran to Piccadilly, to impress their neighbours “across the river”. This has now been superseded by Shudehill Bus Station, which is actually in Manchester, and the whole area around Victoria Bridge Street is being redeveloped.

And yes, I agree about “Arndale”! On the radiator subject I only ever remember the radiator was far forward and was informed at the time it was because of the longer engine.

Adept literature is available Manufactured from as early as until the early s, the tiny “Adept” and “Super-Adept” lathes and shapers and were made in Sellers Street, off Abbeydale Road, Sheffield, England and possible at the very narrow-fronted but deep factory building at 56 Garden Street in the same city by a branch of the Portass family, F. Although, by the most generous stretch of the imagination, these lathes cannot be called other than crude, they did provided the impecunious enthusiast with a way of getting his and occasionally her hands on very a hard-to-come-by product.

Today they are sought-after items and using one provides a fascinating insight into times that were so much harder than our own. Although Sheffield’s main heavy industries, and the larger-volume steel plants of Rotherham, lay to the east and down-wind of the better-class housing , there had been a long tradition of both large and small-scale engineering including grinding, scythe manufacture and even wire drawing in the western Sheffield valleys originally using water power from the Sheaf, Loxley and Porter steams – the latter a playground for the writer in his childhood.

A visit to this area is a must for students of early industrial archaeology. Founded in , by Charles Portass, the original Portass company was concerned with building and constructional engineering but, by the outbreak of the First World War , had evolved to the extent that it was able to take on a variety of government work. Although projects given to the company including the usual munitions work, more interesting tasks contracts were awarded including the manufacture of aircraft components such as landing gear parts for Avro, Bristol and Nieuport fighters, seaplane floats for Blackburn and Fairey, tail units for Avro and De Haviland and even it was claimed the building of a complete batch of 50 Sopwith Snipes.

This segregation is now reaching ‘worrying levels’, says a report published yesterday by the senior civil servant Dame Louise Casey. She warns that the increasing isolation of some communities can lead to the encouragement of religious and cultural practices that are not only contrary to British values but sometimes British Law.

Origin hypotheses[ edit ] A traditional hunter-gatherer society in Wyoming, Scholars have developed a number of hypotheses to explain the historical origins of agriculture. Studies of the transition from hunter-gatherer to agricultural societies indicate an antecedent period of intensification and increasing sedentism ; examples are the Natufian culture in southwest Asia, and the Early Chinese Neolithic in China. Current models indicate that wild stands that had been harvested previously started to be planted, but were not immediately domesticated.

An abundance of readily storable wild grains and pulses enabled hunter-gatherers in some areas to form the first settled villages at this time. List of food origins Sumerian harvester’s sickle, 3, BC, made from baked clay Early people began altering communities of flora and fauna for their own benefit through means such as fire-stick farming and forest gardening very early.

An example is the semi-tough rachis and larger seeds of cereals from just after the Younger Dryas about 9, BC in the early Holocene in the Levant region of the Fertile Crescent. Monophyletic characteristics were attained without any human intervention, implying that apparent domestication of the cereal rachis could have occurred quite naturally.

Similar ploughs were used throughout antiquity. Agriculture began independently in different parts of the globe, and included a diverse range of taxa.

While everyone has their own horror stories, all your bad breakups will pale in comparison to the examples below. In Rotterdam in late , a year-old woman was charged with stalking her ex-boyfriend. As well as sending him excessive texts and emails , she called him an average of times a day. The woman was released from police custody on bail on the condition that she leave her poor ex alone.

And she complied—for several glorious hours—before she gave into temptation and started again. The speed at which technology advances makes it incredibly hard for the law to keep up, and it is now painfully easy to record and distribute images of someone without their knowledge. Nowadays, revenge porn is often shared on social media or websites aimed specifically at scornful ex-lovers. But sometimes, the offender decides to go straight to the source. After going through a rough breakup with his girlfriend, year-old David Simmons from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, decided to get creative with some sexual photos of her that he had taken without consent.

Being the holiday season, Simmons decided to take the lowest of all moral low grounds and send the photos as Christmas cards to all her relatives. Some of them were opened, but most were intercepted. But eventually, he pleaded guilty and was given a suspended sentence in
