Dick Whittington

The legendary Lord Mayor of medieval London did exist, and was probably not a poor apprentice (with a black cat) at all, but the son of a rich West of England squire. He is made a supporting character in LONDON's 'London Bridge'.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
October, derived from the Latin Octo, which means eight, was actually the eighth month of the year in the original Roman calendar of ten months. It wasn’t until the Julian calendar was introduced by Julius Caesar in the first century BC that January and February were added. The Julian calendar remained the predominant calendar in Europe through the sixteenth century, until it was amended to the Gregorian calendar we still use today.
