Toponymy[ edit ] The place-name ‘Greenwich’ is first attested in a Saxon charter of , where it appears as Gronewic. The name means ‘green wic or settlement’ from the Latin ‘vicus’. However, Greenwich was divided into the registration subdistricts of Greenwich East and Greenwich West from the beginning of civil registration in , the boundary running down what is now Greenwich Church Street and Crooms Hill, although more modern references to “East” and “West” Greenwich probably refer to the areas east and west of the Royal Naval College and National Maritime Museum corresponding with the West Greenwich council ward. An article in The Times of 13 October stated: East Greenwich, gateway to the Blackwall Tunnel , remains solidly working class , the manpower for one eighth of London’s heavy industry. West Greenwich is a hybrid: Land outside the physical boundaries of England, as in America, was treated as belonging constructively to one of the existing royal manors, and from Tudor times grants frequently used the name of the manor of East Greenwich,  but some 17c. Early settlement[ edit ] Tumuli to the south-west of Flamsteed House,  in Greenwich Park , are thought to be early Bronze Age barrows re-used by the Saxons in the 6th century as burial grounds.

Several Christian ministries promote the idea that the earth is less than 10, years old, which they say comes from the Bible. In reality, the Bible makes no claim as to the age of the earth, although it does establish a minimum age. This page examines some of the history of the controversy—what the Bible actually says and does not say—and the scientific evidence surrounding the age of the earth.

Excavation history and research context[ edit ] Stratigraphy in Blombos Cave Blombos Cave was first excavated in — as a part of Professor Christopher S. Henshilwood’s doctoral thesis. From the initial excavations conducted in the early s, the Blombos Cave project has adopted and established new and innovative research agendas in the study of southern African prehistory. While Henshilwood’s initial, doctoral research was directed towards the more recent Later Stone Age occupation levels, the focus since has been on the Middle Stone Age sequence.
The Blombos Cave project has since then developed academically, economically and administratively, from being a local and small-scale test excavation to becoming an international, full scale, high-technological archaeological project. It was led by Professor Christopher S. From the cave site continues to be excavated by many of the same researchers under the newly funded Centre for Early Sapiens Behaviour SapienCE at the University of Bergen, Norway.
The aim is to follow an even broader multi-disciplinary approach, and the year programme include cognitive studies, neuroscience, geoscience, climate modelling and reconstruction, fauna etc. Site description[ edit ] The cave is situated in a south-facing cliff face The cave formation is set in calcretes of the Wankoe Formation, and the geological setting indicates that the cave was formed by wave action sometime during the Plio-Pleistocene.

Road[ edit ] Hume Highway internal bypass running beside the railway station Situated on the old Hume Highway , Albury is a major transit point for interstate commerce. From March , Albury was bypassed by the new Hume Freeway. In , the Smollett Street wrought iron arch bridge was constructed over Bungambrawatha Creek. Smollet Street was extended westward through the botanical gardens to give direct access from the Albury Railway Station to Howlong Road by a straight street.
The bridge is near the botanic gardens and the local swimming pool. The bridge is a rare example of a metal arch bridge in New South Wales, and is the oldest of only two such bridges in New South Wales, the other being the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Originally, New South Wales and Victoria had different track gauges , which meant that all travellers in either direction had to change trains at Albury.

Railroads and Manifest Destiny. However, it recently occurred to me that the railroad truly made America in a deeper and more profound way. What first came to my attention with the effect of a light bulb switched on were the relative dates for two key events: Asa Whitney [first] submitted his plan for a Pacific railroad to Congress through his representatives in January Sullivan — in an essay about Texas , but with reference to “the railroad”.
Whether they will then attach themselves to our Union or not, is not to be predicted with any certainty. Unless the projected rail-road across the continent to the Pacific be carried into effect, perhaps they may not; though even in that case, the day is not distant when the Empires of the Atlantic and Pacific would again flow together into one, as soon as their inland border should approach each other.
But that great work, colossal as appears the plan on its first suggestion, cannot remain long unbuilt. Langley, New York, July,
