The Walrus at work BS: Quiz - English History 400-2000 AD (34) RE: BS: Quiz - English History 400-2000 AD 22 Aug 02


1000-1100 - The last successful invasion of England ensured that all court proceedings would be carried out in French for the next 200 years
1066 and False - Church courts worked in Latin.
1500-1600 - The queen led her troops to victory against the Scots
I think that it's false, but I can't think of who or the date I think it was the other way round, a Scottish queen
1600-1700 - The first copyright act gave the Stationers Company a monopoly on the printing of books.
I think not a copyright act, but one of Charles I's money making monopolies, (so 1630s/40s?)
1800-1900 - Many of London's museums are funded as a result of the creation of an enormous glass structure covering three quarters of a million square feet. True? 1851 The Great Exhibition.
1900-2000 - The last person to be tried under The Witchcraft Act was found guilty and gaoled.
TRUE - about 1943 I believe.
