HISTORY OF ART: BCE TO C 500 CE, ANCIENT & CLASSICAL WORLD. Sir William Gell (1777-1836) was a British archaeologist known for his drawings of sites and objects of classical interest. Noting that from the beginning of the excavations at Pompeii in 1748 'to the present day, no [substantial] work has appeared in the English language upon the subject of its domestic antiquities', together with architect and fellow countryman John P. Gandy he first published Pompeiana to help detail important findings that had been made by the excavators in the first two decades of the nineteenth century. To this end they provide historical discussion, analysis, and over 75 plates illustrating various points of archaeological interest including, as their subtitle notes, 'the topography, edifices, and ornaments of Pompeii'. Pompeiana is an important work that helped open the excavations to English readers and created further awareness of the treasures of the doomed city, destroyed by an eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 CE
Marmion : a tale of Flodden Field by Walter Scott( Book )

5 editions published between 1808 and 1809 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poem tells how Lord Marmion, a favourite of Henry VIII of England, lusts for Clara de Clare, a rich woman. He and his mistress, Constance De Beverley, forge a letter implicating Clara's fiancé, Sir Ralph De Wilton, in treason. Constance, a dishonest nun, hopes that her aid will restore her to favour with Marmion. When De Wilton loses the duel he claims in order to defend his honour against Marmion, he is obliged to go into exile. Clara retires to a convent rather than risk Marmion's attentions. Constance's hopes of a reconciliation with Marmion are dashed when he abandons her; she ends up being walled up alive in the Lindisfarne convent for breaking her vows. She takes her revenge by giving the Abbess who is one of her three judges documents that prove De Wilton's innocence. De Wilton, having returned disguised as a pilgrim, follows Marmion to Edinburgh where he meets the Abbess, who gives him the exonerating documents. When Marmion's host, the Earl of Angus is shown the documents, he arms De Wilton and accepts him as a knight again. De Wilton's plans for revenge are overturned by the battle of Flodden Field. Marmion dies on the battlefield, while De Wilton displays heroism, regains his honour, retrieves his lands, and marries Clara.

This anthology of poems, compiled by Brian Moses, contains a mix of light-hearted poems and more serious ones, poems that rhyme and those that don't. There are plenty of good 'read alouds', thumping choruses, and the sort of poems that children can use as models for their own writing. Poetry is a key feature of the new National Curriculum and these fantastic poems are perfectly suited for this. Beautiful illustrations bring each poem vividly to life. Includes poems such as: Spring Phoned by Ian Souter; Spring by Clare Bevan; Springtime in Bluebell Wood by Wes Magee; Spring in the City by Brian Moses; What is Summer For? by Kate Williams; Summer Clouds by Penny Kent; Bed in Summer by R.L.Stevenson; Dear Summer by Kenn Nesbitt; The Swallow by Christina Rosetti; Autumn? by Chris White; Autumn Song by John Rice; Autumn Action Rhyme; Sounds Like Winter by Chris White; I Hear Thunder; December by Daphe Kitching; Mr Snowman by Debra Bertulis; Snow Joke by Clare Bevan; The Seasons in Me by Jane Clarke; Time by Trevor Harvey
