Her casual friendly banter can take a complex, weighty topic such as rape and simplify it into one naive workingwoman's thoughts. She mentions growing up as a Catho...

The general idea to effectively siege a castle was to starve or blockade it until surrender was the only option, but these castles were designed to hold enough food. Kerry when besieged by Saladin held enough food but not enough arms, a strange turn of events in the medieval ages. Margat on the other hand had supplies enough for a five-year siege.

Capital Punishment Two Wrongs Make A Right
654 wordsA man stabs a stranger in the back leaving his victim to suffer a slow, painful death. Should this man be killed for his crime? or should he be locked up in a cell for the rest of his life? I believe capital punishment should not be reintroduced in Britain because, in ending the life of the convicted person, we become murderers, and there is always the risk of killing someone who is later proved innocent. Furthermore there is no evidence to suggest capital punishment reduces the crime rate any m...
