Orléans, le samedi 9 avril 2016 – Des archéologues de l’Institut de recherches archéologiques préventives (INRAP) ont mis à jour dans le Loiret un cimetière datant du haut Moyen Age, vieux d’environ 900 ans, comptant 70 squelettes. Les morts ont été enterrés selon les rites catholiques, qui commençaient alors à s’imposer de façon systématique, sans aucun objet et la tête orientée vers l’Ouest. Ils sont tous disposés les uns près des autres. Sauf un. Pourquoi ce squelette a-t-il été tenu à l’écart ? Cette interrogation a fait l’objet d’une enquête minutieuse, racontée dans un numéro des Experts du passé, programme diffusé sur internet par l’INRAP, Gedeon Programmes, Universciences avec la participation de TV5 et que l’on a pu voir cette s...

Serrano argued that The Book of the Queen must be first read within the socio-political historical moment of the Hundred Y...

How the Longbow Ended Medieval Knights

Historians love watershed moments, and few in military history in the West were as important as the battle of Crecy in 1346.Here is the short version: In the summer of 1346 the English kicked the snot out of the French in one of the most lopsided military victories of the Middle-Ages. It was the first of the major stompings of the French by the English in what is now known as the Hundred-Years War. At issue was who should rule most, if not all, of France: Edward III of England or Phillip VI of France. But that is somewhat beside the point. If you are studying for the SAT exams and do not care about more, stop here. That is all you need to know to answer a standardized test or perhaps a crossword puzzle.What is important about this battle...

Das "richtig weit" verdanken die Akteure Landwirt Rolf Kirn, der für einen Tag eine große Wiese in Monhardt für diese Veranstaltung zur Verfügung stellte. Nach ein paar Proberunden landeten dann die meisten Pfeile im Kreis rund um die Fahne. Die genaue Punkte-Wertung wurde mit Hilfe einer Schnur mit entsprechenden Markierungen ermittelt. Nach fünf Durchgängen mit je sechs Pfeilen wurden die Punkte addiert. Zur allgemeinen Überraschung siegte Nicole Pohl, die im SVE das ganze Jahr nur mit dem "Olympischen Bogen" schießt (Bogen mit Visier, Stabilisatoren und weiteren technischen Hilfsmitteln).

Pope Francis waves to pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square at the end of his weekly general audience at the Vatican on Wednesday. (Tiziana Fabi/AFP/Getty Images) On Friday, Pope Francis made news by encouraging divorced and remarried Catholics to be more included in church life. His insistence that people who do not meet the church’s ideals of marriage and sexuality can still “grow in the life of grace” will outrage some religious conservatives, who already accuse him of coddling sinners. But his words are tame compared with the early teachings of Christ and Catholic traditions, which were far more flexible about the place of divorced or single people and cohabiting couples, and could even set a precedent for accepting loving, same-se...
