Tower of london referat

The tower of London

The Tower's role as a place of imprisonment and execution effectively came to an end during the Second World War (1939-45) with the confinement of Rudolf Hess, Hitler's Deputy Reichsführer, in the Queen's House for four days in May 1941, and the execution of the spy Joseph Jakobs on 14 August. Bomb damage to the Tower during the Second World War was much greater: a number of buildings were severely damaged or destroyed including the mid-19th century North Bastion, which received a direct hit on 5 October 1940, and the Hospital Block which was partly destroyed during an air raid in the same year. Incendiaries also destroyed the Main Guard, a late 19th-century building to the south west of the White Tower.

During the Second World War the Tower was closed to the public. The moat, which had been drained and filled in 1843, was used as allotments for vegetable growing and the Crown Jewels were removed from the Tower and taken to a place of safety, the location of which has never been disclosed. ...

London - Introducing the city (atestat)

With a population of just under eight million, and stretching more than thirty miles at its broadest point, London is by far the largest city in Europe. It is also far more diffuse than the great cities of the Continent, such as Rome or Paris. The majority of the London's sights are situated to the north of the River Thames, which loops through the centre of the city from west to east, but there is no single predominant focus of interest, for London has grown not through centralized planning but by a process of agglomeration - villages and urban developments that once surrounded the core are now lost within the amorphous mass of Great London. Thus London's highlights are widely spread, and visitors should make mastering the public transport system, particularly the Underground (tube), a top priority.

London City

Capital of the United Kingdom. It is situated in south-eastern England at the head of the River Thames estuary. Settled by the Romans as an important shipping point for crops and minerals, it gradually developed into the wealthy capital of a thriving industrial and agricultural nation. The expansion in the 19th century of the British Empire increased London’s influence still further. Since World War II the city’s prominence on the international stage has diminished, but it remains a flourishing financial centre and home to one of the world’s most important stock exchanges.

Henri VIII

Henry Tudor, named after his father, Henry VII, was born June 28, 1491 in Greenwich Palace. Since he was the second son, and not expected to become king, we know little of his childhood until the death of his older brother Arthur. We know that he attended the wedding celebrations of Arthur and his bride, Catherine of Aragon, in November 1501 when he was 10 years old. Shortly after the wedding, Arthur and Catherine went to live in Wales, as was tradition for the heir to the throne. But, four months after the marriage began, it ended, with the death of Arthur Prince of Wales.

Tower Bridge History

Tower Bridge History - In the 19th century, the east end of London became so densely populated that public pressure mounted for a bridge to the east of London Bridge, as journeys for pedestrians and vehicles were being delayed literally by hours. Finally in 1876, the Corporation of London, who were responsible for that part of the Thames, decided that the problem could be put off no longer.

Great Fire of London

Tuesday, the fire spread over nearly the whole City, destroying St. Paul's Cathedral and leaping the River Fleet to threaten Charles II's court at Whitehall. Coordinated firefighting efforts were simultaneously getting underway. The battle to put out the fire is considered to have been won by two key factors: the strong east wind dropped, and the Tower of London garrison used gunpowder to create effective firebreaks, halting further spread eastward.

World Trade Center

I chose this topic because the World Trade Center’s history that I will describe in the pages to come represents the very symbol of the American dream: money, fame and power.
The twin towers were the symbol of the United States power and their destruction (11 September 2001) was a big loss not just for the American people but also for the entire world.
I personally agree with George Bush’s statement: “The World Trade Center attack was not a terrorist act. It was an act of war ” …and I appreciate the U.S.A.‘s response in launching the antiterrorist campaign.
On the W.T.C. memorial, a year later K. Frawley wrote:

Thomas Hardy

Anne and her widowed mother live quietly in a portion of the mill owned by Miller Loveday, until their peace is shattered by the sudden blaze of color and activity brought by a local encampment of several army regiments. As they prepare to defend the country from the expected invasion by Napoleon, Anne quickly builds her own defences against a private army of suitors. She must apparently chose between the headstrong and rude Festus Derriman who, in place of any manners at all, nevertheless possesses good prospects, and the reflective and honest trumpet-major, John Loveday, who does not. And there is a third, Anne’s childhood sweetheart and John’s sailor brother, Robert, whose sudden arrival with an unknown wife-to-be, throws the whole affair in a thorough confusion.
