The 12th century was a time of great historical significance, filled with fascinating events and influential figures. The Map of Europe at the time of the Third Crusade in 1190 provides a glimpse into the geopolitical landscape during this period. Meanwhile, St Dunstan, Archbishop of Canterbury, stands as a symbol of religious authority and power. Hedingham Castle in Essex, depicted in an engraving by John Carr Armytage from 1832, showcases the grandeur and architectural marvels that existed during this era. The Battle of Montgisard on November 25th, 1177, immortalized through an oil painting from around 1842, reminds us of the intense conflicts that shaped medieval Europe. Drum Castle captured in black and white photography transports us back to ancient times when fortresses played crucial roles in defense strategies. Ptolemais being given to Philip Augustus and Richard the Lionheart on July 13th, 1191 highlights their significant contributions to history. The effigy of William Marshall found within his tomb at Temple Church in London is a testament to his prominence as one of England's greatest knights. Carnarvon Castle offers a picturesque view through watercolor on paper—a reminder that castles were not only strategic strongholds but also stunning works of art. The military campaigns led by Byzantine Emperor Leon VI "The Wise" against the Bulgarians reveal intricate political dynamics between empires during this time period. Richard the Lionheart emerges once again—this time portrayed vividly through color lithography—as he leaves an indelible mark on history with his valiant exploits. Bear Gates flanked by gate lodges at Traquair House evoke images straight out of fairy tales—a glimpse into aristocratic life during this enchanting era. Lastly, Arator De Actibus Apostolorum (Fragment) serves as evidence for literary achievements achieved even amidst tumultuous times.
