Byland is a 12thcentury building but it has the most extensive collections of medieval tiles in any ruined site. The tiles date mainly from the 13th& 14thcenturies. There are 40 different shapes of tile present at Byland. It is thought that the tiles were made on site.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ #medievaltimes #medievaltravels #travelengland#12thcentury#historicengland#uktravel#britishhistory#oldarchitecture#oldbuildings#medievalhistory#medievalist#middleages#medievaltimes#medievalEurope#Medieval world⁣ #Medievalarchitecture#Medievalstyle#medievalfantasy#travelhistory#Travellovers#architecturephotography#northyorkshire at Byland Abbey, Byland, Coxwold

Heres a lovely image of the flying buttresses along the walkway into our 12th century Chantry Chapel where the Master and Brethren conduct prayers every morning, a tradition that was started by Robert Dudley upon the founding of the Lord Leycester Hospital in 1571. If you look even closer, you will be able to see the inscription on the wall at the far end of the walkway. #flyingbuttresses #12thcentury #chapel #prayers #robertdudley #inscription #repairs #history #heritage #warwick at Lord Leycester Hospital

26.02.19 _19:00 Η διάλεξη θα εξετάσει τη σύνταξη και διάδοση των νομικών κειμένων των λατινικών κρατών, που δημιουργήθηκαν στην Ανατολική Μεσόγειο ως αποτέλεσμα των σταυροφοριων του 11ου κ 12ου αιώνα, κάνοντας ειδικές αναφορές στις Ασσιζες του Μεσαιωνικου Βασιλείου της Κύπρου και ιδιαίτερα αυτές της Αυλής της Βουργεσιας. Θα γίνει αναφορά στις διάφορες νομικές συλλογές γνωστές ως ασσιζες καθώς και σε άλλα νομικά κείμενα που συντάχθηκαν στη λατινική ανατολή, μετά από την απώλεια των Ιεροσολύμων. Πρόκειται για παρουσίαση που εστιάζει στο ευρύτερο νομικό πλαίσιο μέσα στο οποίο εντάσσονται οι κυπριακές Ασσιζες. Θα γίνουν επίσης αναφορές κ περιγραφές των διαφόρων νομικών παραδόσεων και πηγών που χρησιμοποιήθηκαν για τη σύνταξη τους. Ο ομιλητής θα αναλύσει ιδιαίτερα το σύνολο των νόμων που εφαρμοζοταν από την Αυλή της Βουργεσιας και που αφορούν πτυχές του οικογενειακου, αστικού, εμπορικού και ποινικού δικαίου. Θα σχολιάσει επιπλέον το κείμενο ως προς την κυπριακή Μεσαιωνική διάλεκτο στην οποία είναι γραμμένο το κείμενο των Ασσιζων και πως αυτό αντανακλά την εξέλιξη της Κυπριακής διαλέκτου κατά τον Μεσαίωνα. Τέλος θα συζητηθεί η προέλευση και χρονολογία των σωζομενων ελληνικών κειμένων των Ασσιζων. #assizes #jerusalem #crussadescyprus #11οςαιωνας #12οςαιωνας #11thcentury #12thcentury #burgesia #burgesscourt #burgess #cypriotdialect #manuscripts #leventismuseum #nicosia #LMMN #historyofnicosia #museum #historyofcyprus #cyprus #medieval #medievaltimes #medievalworld #medievalhistory #medievalcyprus

Angkor Thom late 12th century Khmer capital. While Angkor Wat is the biggest temple Angkor Tom is the biggest city built 30 yrs after. We came through the South Gate. The Naga (snake) has a lot of damage but still magnificent. It has 54 statues Gods on one side, and demons the other and the three headed elephant as you enter at the gate are great. I still am amazed all the details they put into each carving in the Blanton temple. People playing chess, fighting, daily life etc. the tiniest details telling stories of their time. #AngkorThom #12thcentury #Naga #Airavata #temple #Khmer #city #SiemReap #Cambodia #southgate #amazing #carvings #Asparadancers

An up hill walk through the cobbled village streets which leads to the 12th century Abbey. Part of it is an intriguing ruin where you can explore and even climb up the stairway. • • • • • #picturesque #sceneryshots #scenerylovers #theabbeyruins #historicalarchitecture #ruins #stairways #masonry #undiscoveredscotland #scotlandphotography #culrossabbey #igscotland #exploringscotland #historical #exploreeverything #travelingram #travelscotland #wanderer #historicscotland #visitscotland #nationaltrust #trekking #beautifulscotland #history #12thcentury #ruinstagram

I was on oneday #picnic this week. Enjoyed a lot, was truly a #naturedate . First place is #Hatkeshwar temple in Vadnagar, Gujarat. Built in #17th #century, has a self-emerged shiva linga, family deity of Nagar Brahmins. . Second is #kirtitoran, both identical in #size and #style; the most striking pieces of #architecture , built of #redsandstone. . Third is #tarangahills (from the #Buddhist #goddess Tara) on the #Aravali #mountain range, having profound connections with Buddhism. It has #12thcentury derasar, best preserved and least restored temples in Gujarat; one of India’s most treasured works of #architecture . And finally #DharoiDam, huge #water #resource, on #Sabarmati #river. It was constructed in 1978 with means of irrigation, power generation and flood control. #fun #instagood #videooftheday #outing #holiday #ig_gujarat #ig_india #khushboogujaratki

I can't help but see a good-natured though slightly bored face in this castle tower. Not a big surprise when you consider this castle was built in the 12th century - that's quite a long time ago when you're always looking in the same direction.... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ #winter #winterwonderland #fairyplaces #castle #schloss #burg #medieval #medievalworld #12thcentury #archaeology #architecture #tower #darknature #dark #moody #darkaesthetic #darkart #explore #exploremore #getoutside #wanderlust #thewanderco #weroamgermany #folknature #sombrescapes #sauerland #solingen #nature #naturelovers #iseefaceseverywhere at Schloss Burg

Wish we’d had more time to explore more of historical Prague...turning a corner and seeing the Maltese cross as we approached The Church of Our Lady beneath the Chain. Apparently this was the centre of the land given to the Knights Hospitaller in the 1100s. It’s been a while since I studied this period of history and I’m a bit patchy in knowledge as I missed a lot of college with a horrendous chest infection. Ironic, seeing as I spent my time in Prague with one! (Not Devon, a chest infection). Anyway, enjoy the old pretty building while I try and make time to play assassins creed... • • • #theadventuresofwheelsandlegman #prague #churchofourladybeneaththechain #oldprague #praguestagram #instaprague #knightshospitaller #maltesecross #praguearchitecture #loveprague #aroundprague #travelblogger #historygeek #disabledblogger #couplebloggers #travelersnotebook #citygrammers #12thcentury at Prague, Czech Republic

Nope, not celebrating. Never did. But if you are, enjoyyyy! 💝💐❤️💋 . Your relationship with yourself is equally as important. Some days loving yourself looks like taking a stretch & breathing generously in downward dog in an empty passageway after a 3-hour walk!✌🏼 . #valentines #notcelebratingvalentinesday #selflove #selfcare #love #loveyourself #chooselove #celebrateloveeveryday #yoga #yogalove #yogapose #downwarddog #adhomukhasvanasana #stretch #breathe #mover #movement #animalflowist #yogateacher #yogastudent #workinprogress #tomar #portugal #warmwinter #winterdays #sunnydays #historical #worldheritagesite #12thcentury #norosesnochocolates at Convento de Cristo

...and the last one of the red handprinted medieval inspired wallhangings is finished. This one is the only one printed with Crimson red. I really like how nice the Crimson red looks on the golden fabric. ❤🤗😍🤗❤ #racaire #linocut #lion #cross #crosses #sca #mysca #linoleum #myscalife #societyforcreativeanachronism #medievallion #12thcentury #13thcentury #handmade #handcut #blockprinting #medievalpattern #medievalprint #reenactment #printedfabric #artist #printedtextiles #printed #pennon #wallhanging #banner #decor #walldecor #madeinusa #madeinamerica at Crestview, Florida
