Samuel Argall

Samuel Argall was born in Kent, England sometime between 1572 and 1580, when he was baptized. He grew up in the shadow of great sea captains like Francis Drake, also from Kent and the greatest English hero of the time.

Plunkett’s Agenda: Count Plunkett against Friend and Foe, February-April 1917 (Part III)

The election victory of Count Plunkett, father of Joseph Plunkett, in North Roscommon, February 1917, was soon followed by the frosting of relations between him and Arthur Griffith. The immediate point of contention was Plunkett's public refusal to take his seat at Westminster. Although absentionism had long been a policy of Sinn Féin, Griffith was concerned that this was a step too far and...

He had been selected by a coalition of Nationalist groups and individuals, joined by an impatience...

Birkenau (part 3)

The barracks in this vast camp were mostly wooden prefabricated horse barns, laid upon the swampy, constantly wet ground without any foundations. Few remain, leaving behind a forest of brick chimneys, sole survivors in this otherworldly place.

Below is the interior of one such barrack, in the Quarantine section of the camp. Left and right, spaces where the bunkers once were. The brick stove can be seen at the far end, a construct attached to it running through the centre of the barrack....
