Robert I, popularly known as Robert the Bruce, was King of Scots from 25 March 1306, until his death in 1329. He became one of Scotland's greatest kings, as well as one of the most famous warriors of his generation, eventually leading Scotland during the Wars of Scottish Independence against the Kingdom of England. He claimed the Scottish throne as a fourth great-grandson of David I, and fought successfully during his reign to regain Scotland's place as an independent nation.

The teenagers murdered her in her sleep, strangled in chiffon, her eyes gouged out and replaced with doll eyes.

The number of Viking warrior burials in Dublin is extraordinary in the Viking world, say archaeologists. Many were buried with swords and other Viking paraphernalia. A project cataloguing these burials, which began in 1999, is nearing conclusion. It will result in the publication of Viking Graves and Grave-Goods in Ireland, an 800-page tome.

Choirbooks from the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The book is large enough for the entire choir to read from one book. Once the printing of music became easier and more commonplace, choirbooks fell out of favor, replaced by smaller, cheaper, and easier to handle books. A choirbook was a major investment. At larger cathedrals choirbooks were sometimes lavishly decorated and illuminated.

About 7000 years ago in what is now Southwest Germany, was a city called 'Herxheim', a city that was mysteriously abandoned. A few years ago, Dr. Bruno Boulestin and his team were investigating the region, when they hit a grave containing the bones of 500 people. The marks on the bones show that the bodies were skinned and had their flesh removed using techniques almost identical to those for butchering animals. One researcher suggested that some of the victims could even have been spit-roasted.
