The greatest mountain Like other people I am fond of travelling to beautiful places. But I have one distinguishing feature. I prefer travelling on foot to traveling by car or by plane. This summer our company of about 35-45 people decided to explore the Crimea Mountains. It is well known they keep many legends and sagas. We passed through many interesting places of interest and heard a lot of amazing stories. But most of all I liked the legend about the greatest mountain, which name is Demerji. Long time ago conquerors-nomads and hordes gushed to the Crimean lands. Like fiery lava they were descending around the mountains and steppes, and the smell of burning and the smoke were behind them. The Crimean residents didn’t bend their necks; they met their enemies bravely. They killed a lot of uninvited guests. The further they were moving to the depth, the more guns they needed. They came up to the mountain, which was called ‘Fuming’ by the residents. The surrounded people were famous as smiths, and so many handymen gathered in the villages. The masters of warlords gathered around the mountain and were looking at its top with admire. It was tightened with smoke. And the senior warlord decided that it was impossible to find the better place for the bugle. He called one man who differed from the others and whispered him something. At once he took some warriors and ten residents with him and led them to the top of the mountain. Since that the conquerors were getting the necessary guns. The man with a black beard, a blacksmith, was forging new guns on the top of the mountain. He built a giant smithy. The mountain was rattling all days long. At this smithy the guns were forged from such steel that it hacked different steel but stayed untouched. The conquerors killed everybody. But one day a young brave girl, who decided to stop the murders and slavery, appeared. At night she climbed up to the mountain, came up to the smith and asked to end tortures and go away. But he just smiled and killed the brave girl with the sword, which he had just made. One drop of her blood fell into the mouth of the mountain, and it made noise, not bearing such villainy. All the bugles were destroyed and the lava was gushing. All the conquerors-nomads died. And the peaceful residents were lifted high in the sky by the wind, and, when everything was over, they were put down back. The people looked around and saw their former mountain, but there was no smoke, and there were rocks in which it was possible to discern the smith with a black beard and girl’s head. Since then this mountain has been called Demerji, which means a smith in translation. I admire this legend, and what about you?
The Earth is in Danger I want to tell you about our Earth. I want to say what people ruins and want they can lose. Many people want to save the Earth, but they don`t know how to do it. They don`t know how to protect wild animals, plants, and how to keep water clean and air fresh. Water is very important in the life of people. There is a lot of water on our planet. It is in rivers, oceans, lakes and seas. At the same time there is a little water on the planet. In many lakes and rivers the water is very dirty. Sometimes people can`t swim in seas, rivers and lakes because water is dirty. In many places water is not able to drink and it is dangerous to use it when you cook. Even fish die in such water. Some people`s activities do a lot of harm to the forests. People cut down trees to build farms, homes and roads. Many animals and plants lose their homes. Many of them die. This is bad for the air of the Earth too. Modern plants and factories send a lot of smoke in the atmosphere. This is very bad, because nowadays it`s difficult to breathe in big cities. So, the problem now is to protect life on the Earth, and to save our planet for the future. I believe that we must think about our planet and we mustn`t cut down trees, dump to the rivers. Then in the future our world will be beautiful. Forests Brief History of Sherwood Forest The early history of Sherwood Forest The parliament Oak, one of the original boundary oaks for the Clipstone Royal Park and the oldest tree in Sherwood Forest. Evidence of flint tools shows some use of the Sherwood area by prehistoric hunter-gathers.By the 9th centry,farming communities were making a greater impact on the Sherwood landscape. Most of these communities still exist today. Names ending in ‘by’ like Thoresby, are Scandinavian in origin, ‘thorpe’ as in Gleadthorpe are Danish, and ‘feal’ (field) as in Mansfield, are Roman whilst ‘tun’ (ton) as in Clipstone are anglo-saxon. This was Clippes hamlet or manor. The name ‘Sherwood’ was first recorded in 958 when it was called Sciryuda, meaning ‘the woodland belonging to the shire’. The Royal Forest Historically there were two different definitions of Sherwood. One was the great swath of woodland and heath found on the quickly draining poor sand-lands running up the centre of Nottinghamshire. The other was the Royal Forest of Sherwood, which comprised the royal manors and was subject to Forest Law. Before 1066 many of these manors were held by Edward the Confessor. Royal manors provided the King with his main power base so were very important. After the Norman invasion, these royal manors formed the core of the Royal Forest. The legal term ‘Forest’ meant an area subject to special laws designet to protect the valuable resources of timber and game (vert and venision). These laws were strictly and severely imposed by agisters. Foresters, verderers (wardens) and ranges, who were all were employed by the Crown. It was Henry II who, in 1180, enclosed the Royal Hunting Park of Clipstone and made the manor at Kings Clipstone, which later became known as King John’s Palace, a royal residence. In the 1200s, popularly thought to be the time of Robin Hood, Sherwood Covered about a fifth of Nottinghamshire. The main London to York road, the Great Norht Way, ran straight though Sherwood, and travelers were often at the mercy of robbers living outside of the law (outlaws). The 1630 map of Kings Clipstone shows the Forest to the east of Kings Clipstone reduced to rabbit warrens and scrubby heathland called the ‘Shrogges’, a local dialect word. -Ok, your time is up.
