Spanish Armada

Though the great Armada in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I is alluded to in both SARUM and LONDON, it becomes the principal action in 'The Armada Tree' chapter of THE FOREST. The story of the wreck of a Spanish galleon full of bullion near Hurst Castle in the Forest is based upon local evidence.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The first leap year in the modern sense was in 1752 in Britain, with the adoption of the Gregorian calendar by Britain and her colonies. This was not the first time leap years had been used; the Julian calendar used before 1752 had a simpler system of leap years, and The Islamic calendar Al-Hijra also has an extra day added to the 12th month Zul Hijja on leap years.
