Tewodros didn't ask for the help of Britain against the Ottomans and Egyptians.He had no problem to keep fighting and die, for he had struggled against them since he was a boy under his ferocious uncle Dej. Kinfu Hailu. He was very advanced among his people and ahead of his time. Fully understanding the intention of the Great Powers, even though he was surrounded in the childish world of Abyssinia, he thought it his responsibility and his God given task to save his nation from encroachment.
Though he was a master of war on the field he knew the importance of diplomacy and achieving progress through industry.
Seeing the technological advancement his enemies had against him and that they used it only for greedy gain, he wanted it to use to build his nation and to open the peoples eyes. It is this sole reason why Britain made him their enemy. He wasn't part of their agenda, he was a stumbling block. Britain knew a modern Ethiopia under Tewodros would be the ruin of Egypt and the cotton industry. So they ignored him encouraging the Egyptians to attack his frontier and enslave children. This after Tewodros had agreed to be a good christian and not attack the Egyptians which was an impossible thing for him at first because of the atrocities they had committed against his Christian countrymen. Now is the time to learn the real history of this romantic man, not false reports which have been created by the same people who were responsible for his downfall!

Fascinating! I wonder where I can find one of these ferneries in Ireland!



Very interesting.

I was recently in Auckland and The Winter Gardens there has the most awesome collection of ferns arranged in a spiral pathway down to a valley bottom
and pond. Magnificent and very comprehensive.

As always, a wonderful post! I must say, I have a great love of ferns, although I tend to have a 'black thumb' with them. I hope to succeed with them eventually!

Just to update the link above, and also let you know that the free ebook, 'Broadmoor Revealed: Victorian Crime and the Lunatic Asylum', is now available from most online retailers. Please take a look!

2011-09-13T20:22:03.165+01:00

The library at Farringford is finished and back to what it was when Alfred roamed the corridors, including a lot of the original furniture and even a wax model of the man himself, wearing one of his own capes, sitting at his desk reading an open book. The rest of the house is at present being lovingly restored to its former glory, by local craftsmen, and to the specification that Alfred would have recognised, not as a hotel but as a private house. Its, owners hoping to eventually live in it when the restorations are complete. Unfortunately, its not open to the public while these works are in progress but the holiday cottages, golf course and Garden Restaurant in the grounds are open daily.

This reminds me of something out of the Byzantine Empire as well...funny that it is so timeless.

You note that Henry Harrison went on seven-year tours and covered much of the globe taking pictures, painting pictures and collecting specimens. He covered all the exotic places that Victorian adventurers were passionate about but I am particularly interested in seeing his images of Israel and Egypt.

Do you know if any book of his works has been published? I can't find his name anywhere :(

I've been reading your blog for a while - great posts!! This one in particular has grabbed me as I live just down the road from Kings Cross. Love discovering new things about where I live.

Fascinating :)

How horrible that human beings were relegated to such living conditions and subsistance levels along with the detritus of a class structured society . Glad to see you posting again . I wish I were near such an exhibition .



Love this fascinating post.

I am hoping that the home in seventeenth-century Delft put a premium on cleanliness, Calvinist religious values, obedience of children, well supervised domestic staff etc.

I don't suppose anyone liked living in dirty, unhealthy conditions, but my hope and fantasy is that in 17th century Netherlands they greatly valued cleanliness and order. De Hooch and other painters suggested that homes were clean and the streets were washed.

Thanks for highlighting this exhibition Kristan-- it looks fascinating (and I would love to see one of those scratch and sniff cards!)

Thanks for your comment. It does look very modern, doesn't it? It strikes me as vaguely Art Deco-ish.

Poor old Duchess of Kent. She had an interesting life :)

I don't know anything about early 19th century jewellery, but that gold, enamel and garnet bodice brooch (1830) has an unexpected look to my eyes. Very bold modern geometric patterns combined with rich traditional florals and twirls; large garnets with add ons in green, orange and red enamel. Even the gold has at least two diffent colours.

Just discovered your blog. Have seen the Muybridge exhibit at the Corcoran in DC before it crossed over to the Tate. I am a new blooger - VictorianCalendar@blogspot.com - an event per day "ripped from the headlines" of the Victorian scene. If you have the time, please have a look and your thoughts would be welcome. Thank you.

Thank you for this marvellous write-up regarding the former home of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. As Assistant Director of the Undershaw Preservation Trust I wish to thank you for raising awareness of our campaign on your page.

2011 is a very crucial year for Undershaw. With a Judicial Review in the High Court imminent, we hope for success and justice in our bid to overturn Waverley Borough Council's decision to develop.

Thank you for your support.
