Un livre liturgique produit en Agaune a trouvé une place dans les collections du British Museum. D’autres sont parvenus jusqu’à Rome. Le fait, rapporté par le chanoine Olivier Roduit, archiviste de l’Abbaye de Saint-Maurice, prouve deux vérités historiques.

Er war Teil des Ochsenweges von Dänemark nach Holland, heute hat der sogenannte "Alte Marktweg", der von Horneburg über Wedel und Kutenholz nach Bremervörde führt, seine Bedeutung verloren. Im Sommer 2015 hat Kreisarchäologe Dr. Daniel Nösler gemeinsam mit Dr. Donat Wehner von der Uni Kiel begonnen ihn zu erforschen. Die zahlreichen Funde und Ergebnisse sollen jetzt im Juni in einer Publikation erscheinen. "Wenn man sich den Weg anschaut, denkt man, hier ist ja gar nichts.

The traditional 10th-century Castle di Sismano outside of Rome has quite an illustrious history of owners: it was donated by Emperor Otto in 962 AD, and passed on to the family of the Prince Corsini (two of whom became popes) until it hit the market this week. That's over 1,000 years of royal inhabitants. The estate for sale is comprised of an 18,000-square-foot castle that includes a functioning (and well-reviewed) bed-and-breakfast, plus parts of the adjoining medieval village and a complex of residential bu...
