Historic Storms of the North Sea, British Isles and Northwest Europe

Isles Of The North [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Historic Storms of the North Sea, British Isles and Northwest Europe by Hubert Lamb,Knud Frydendahl Book Summary:

The North Sea regions are some of the busiest shipping lanes in the world (which have recently seen the introduction of oil and gas rigs), and the surrounding land areas are some of the most populous. This book presents a historical investigation of great storms that have affected the North Sea and neighboring northern seas, the British Isles, and the fringe of northwest Europe. All those wind storms with serious effects that could be identified within the past 500-600 years are recorded and a few earlier cases discussed. In every case, observations of weather and other circumstances reported during the storm have been used to produce a modern and reasonably full meteorological analysis that will facilitate wind strength estimates and wind measurements and aid in the diagnosis of storm origins. As a scientific study, this work takes advantage of the unequaled abundance in this region of historical reports and records. The book is destined to further meteorological understanding and help examine weather trends and secular variations and the impact of storms on human affairs, especially in damage to buildings, forests, and other aspects of the landscape, particularly coasts. It will be of interest to atmospheric scientists, engineers, geographers, historians, and administrators.

TALES OF THE ENCHANTED ISLANDS OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC - 20 Tales of Enchanted Islands

Isles Of The North [Pdf/ePub] eBook

TALES OF THE ENCHANTED ISLANDS OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC - 20 Tales of Enchanted Islands by Anon E. Mouse Book Summary:

These tales have been gathered for more than a thousand years about the islands of the North Atlantic. In all ages and with all sea-going races there has always been something especially fascinating about an island amid the ocean. Its very existence has for all explorers an air of magic. To seafarers an island offers safety after the danger of the open sea. The 20 tales about these enchanted islands of the North Atlantic are: The Story of Atlantis Taliessin of the Radiant Brow The Swan-Children of Lir Usheen in the Island of Youth Bran the Blessed The Castle of the Active Door Merlin the Enchanter Sir Lancelot of the Lake The Half-Man King Arthur at Avalon Maelduin's Voyage The Voyage of St. Brandan Kirwan's Search for Hy-Brasail The Isle of Satan's Hand Antillia, the Island of the Seven Cities Harald the Viking The Search for Norumbega The Guardians of the St. Lawrence The Island of Demons Bimini and the Fountain of Youth Once you set foot on such an island and you can begin to understand the legends of enchantment which the ages have collected around such spots. Climb to the heights of Glastonbury Tor and gaze westwards, and you look out over the Bristol Channel, you can imagine yourself to be at the masthead of some lonely vessel, kept forever at sea. You feel as if no one but yourself has ever landed there; and yet, perhaps, even there, looking straight downward, you can imagine you see below you in some crevice of the rock, a mast or spar of some wrecked vessel, encrusted with all manner of shells and barnacles. So, we invite you to curl up with these ancient legends not seen in print for many-a-year; and immerse yourself in the tales and fables of yesteryear.

Isles Of The North [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A New History of the Isle of Man: Evolution of the natural landscape by Richard Chiverrell,Dr. Geoff Thomas,John Belchem,Seán Duffy,Harold Mytum Book Summary:

The Isle of Man is a small island off the northwest coast of England in the Irish Sea. Though heavily influenced by nearby England, Ireland, Wales, and Scotland, it possesses a distinct culture all its own that is reflected in everything from its language, Manx, to its independent parliament, the Tynwald, a legacy of Viking rule. A New History of the Isle of Man takes a fascinating, in-depth look at the island's past. The first volume of the series comprises a natural history of the island from some 500 million years ago to the present day. Beginning with the story of the first arrival of plants and animals on the island's rocky shores, it concludes with an appraisal of changes in the environment of the island wrought by its human residents.

The Northern Isles

Isles Of The North [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Northern Isles by Alexander Fenton Book Summary:

The Northern Isles stand at a crossroads of North Atlantic Europe, subject to the competing influences of Scandinavia and Scotland. Sandy Fenton's detailed study of the material culture of Orkney and Shetland is combined with thorough linguistic analysis and is based on years of study and sifting of a mass of detail. Much of the material is new, based on extensive research by the author, on manuscript and other written sources and on knowledge freely imparted by many local inhabitants. It illuminates the complexity of numerous interlocking factors, draws a picture of a fascinating and varied existence and reveals the past not as a static tableau but a process of continuous change. This book recreates the physical environment in which the people lived, their crops and livestock, the harvest of the sea, their houses, the food they ate. These things dominated their lives and form the background which is the key to understanding the character of these fascinating islands. This major work has earned its place as a key contribution to European ethnology and won the Dag Stromback Award of the Royal Gustav Academy, Sweden.

The Western Isles of Scotland

Isles Of The North [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Western Isles of Scotland by Francis Thompson Book Summary:

From the Butt of Lewis in the north to Barra Head in the south, the Western Islands form a unique part of Scotland: a rocky chain of islands 130 miles long, cut off from the Mainland by the Minch as effectively as the Channel separates Britain as a whole from the rest of Europe. Despite their diversity in history and landscape, Harris and Lewis, North and South Uist, Benbecula, Barra and the smaller islands have been united by the struggle against a sometimes harsh environment, and the first to maintain their independent economic and cultural identity whether against the 'Fife Adventurers' in 1598, or the land clearances of Victorian times which saw so many 'superfluous' Islanders dispatched overseas. But The Western Islands of Scotland is not a nostalgic look at a people in retreat. Illustrated with outstanding color and black-and-white photographs which emphasize the megaliths, castles, crafts and seamanship, Francis Thompson records a linguistic and cultural heritage which is now staging a forceful comeback after centuries of retreat. Many famous names have had connections with the Islands MacAulay and Gladstone among them while the traditions of the folktale and the ceilidh continue to produce successors to the Gaelic bard Ian Lom and the storyteller Donald MacPhee. Francis Thompson concludes with a look at the appeal of the Islands to outsiders, many of whom are attracted to crofting as a self-sufficient, "green" form of farming."

The Isle of Man

Isles Of The North [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Isle of Man by Vaughan Robinson,Danny McCarroll Book Summary:

This book, drawing on wide experience of the Isle of Man, describes, interprets and explains the features that make the Island’s physical and human landscapes so distinctive and give it a unique sense of place. Although the editors have taken a strongly geographical approach to their theme, the book is unparalleled in writings on the Isle of Man in the broad range of contributions it has assembled: geology, quaternary science, geomorphology, archaeology, history, natural history, political science, demography, social policy and economics. The book definitively reviews current geographical knowledge relating to the Isle of Man, bringing together hitherto fragmented, scattered and inaccessible work. Particular emphasis is placed upon the way in which geographers are returning to their intellectual roots with a renewed focus on both the distinctiveness and sense of place. By helping readers to understand the processes that formed, and continue to change, the Isle of Man’s unique physical and human landscapes, this book aims both to inform and to enhance enjoyment of the Island.

Northern Isles

Isles Of The North [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Northern Isles by Source Wikipedia Book Summary:

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 28. Chapters: 1669 Act for annexation of Orkney and Shetland to the Crown, List of lochs in Orkney, NorthLink Ferries, Orkney tunnel, P&O Scottish Ferries, Pentland Ferries, Stroma, Scotland. Excerpt: Orkney (Scottish Gaelic: ) also known as the Orkney Islands, is an archipelago in northern Scotland, 16 kilometres (10 mi) north of the coast of Caithness. Orkney comprises approximately 70 islands of which 20 are inhabited. The largest island, known as the "Mainland" has an area of 523.25 square kilometres (202.03 sq mi) making it the sixth largest Scottish island and the tenth-largest island in the British Isles. The largest settlement and administrative centre is Kirkwall. The name "Orkney" dates back to the 1st century BC or earlier, and the islands have been inhabited for at least 8,500 years. Originally occupied by Mesolithic and Neolithic tribes and then by the Picts, Orkney was invaded and forcibly annexed by Norway in 875 and settled by the Norse. It was subsequently annexed to the Scottish Crown in 1472, following the failed payment of a dowry for James III's bride, Margaret of Denmark. Orkney contains some of the oldest and best-preserved Neolithic sites in Europe, and the "Heart of Neolithic Orkney" is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. Orkney is one of the 32 council areas of Scotland, a constituency of the Scottish Parliament, a lieutenancy area, and a former county. The local council is Orkney Islands Council, one of only three Councils in Scotland with a majority of elected members who are independents. In addition to the Mainland, most of the islands are in two groups, the North and South Isles, all of which have an underlying geological base of Old Red Sandstone. The climate is mild and the soils are extremely fertile, most of the land being farmed. Agriculture is the most important sector of the economy...
