LONDON Clearance Women's Air Jordan 6 Oreo Black Oreo , May 27 (Xinhua) -- One of the most important documents ever written in Britain, the Domesday Book, went on display Saturday in the city of Lincoln.

It is the first time in living memory it has been shown outside of London.

The 2 million-word document was commissioned in 1085 by the king known as William the Conqueror following his invasion of England in 1066.

It lists the total taxable value of William's new kingdom, giving what is said to be a unique picture of life in the country at the time.

The Domesday Book, one of the treasures of Britain's national archives Discount Air Jordan 6 Retro GS Lakers Black White , is on public display at Lincoln Castle by King William on the site of a Roman fortress.

It is the centerpiece of an exhibition, which also includes another famous document in Britain, the Magna Carta signed by King John in 1215 outlining basic rights of people across his kingdom.

The documents are included in a Battles and Dynasties exhibition at the castle, running until Sept. 3, marking the 800th anniversary of the Battle of Lincoln in 1217.

Jon Hogan from Lincolnshire County Council Discount Women's Air Jordan 6 GS Still Blue White , said: "The Domesday Book has not been exhibited outside London in living memory. This is an unmissable chance for visitors to see the book within the grounds of a castle built by the same king that ordered the Domesday survey."

Talking about other exhibits, Hogan said "It's an extremely rare opportunity to be able to see three of the country's most significant documents together, with Domesday alongside Magna Carta and the Charter of the Forest."

Jeff James, Keeper at Britain's National Archives said: "There simply is no other document like the Domesday Book. It is our nation's earliest, most important and most treasured public record Air Jordan 6 Retro Varsity Red White Womens Cheap , a work of the greatest historical significance."

He said the book offers an insight into life and society in England more than 900 years ago.

CHICAGO, Aug. 16 (Xinhua) -- Evanston is a small city only an hour's drive north of Chicago Mens Air Jordan 6 All Star Black Silver Online , where Northwestern University (NU) is located. Although it was considered part of the 'Greater Chicago' area, Evanston and NU manage to remain untouched by Chicago's surging violence.

In 2016, Chicago witnessed 754 homicides and 4,338 shooting victims, most of which were reported in the city's southern and western areas Mens Air Jordan 6 Retro Pinnacle Metallic Gold White For Sale , according to a research by Chicago Tribune. It was the city's most violent year since the mid-1990s. 2017 gave little hope for relief, at the year's midpoint, 323 people were killed, even more than same period of last year.

While some universities located in the southern parts of Chicago have made extra efforts in keeping their campus safe, students at NU have felt comfortable with the measures their university has in place.

Jiayan Shi Air Jordan 6 Retro Gatorade Like Mike Orange 384664-145 Retail , a sophomore at NU, said she felt quite safe on campus. "It was mostly because the city of Evanston itself is very safe," she said. "I feel the university has abundant security personnel."

Another NU student, Hallie, also didn't worry much about campus security. "I know there has been some isolated incidents air jordan 6 retro for sale , but I feel safe when I walk around campus," Hallie told Xinhua. "There are emergency phone boxes, which I think are very helpful in campus."

Emergency phone boxes are somewhat standard at Chicago's universities. Most of them have a blue light on top and an emergency button, as well as speakers to communicate with police in emergency. Most students at NU learn about them on their first day at universities.

"I know that there are emergency boxes almost everywhere on the roads, which can make emergency call to police. Once you meet any danger air jordan 6 for sale , you can press the button on the box, which would then contact the university police directly and give them your location," Shi said.

Though located in a safe neighbourhood, NU does not hold back on implementing necessary security measure. Authentic NHL Jerseys From China   Wholesale Jerseys   Wholesale Jerseys From China   Wholesale Jerseys China Free Shipping   Wholesale Jerseys From China   Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap   Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap   Wholesale MLB Jerseys From China   Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys   Cheap College Hockey Jerseys
