  • Rupert Brooke was a 'complex' womaniser, letters reveal

    The college has secured the John Schroder Collection - the last great collection of Brooke's manuscripts still in private hands - which it says helps shed light on the poet's life. Peter Jones, King's College fellow librarian, said that a cult was created by Winston Churchill and other admirers who turned Brooke into a "mythical figure" of youthful hero-soldier-poet. Mr Jones added: "Some of Rupert Brooke's family and closest friends, the ones who knew him the best, resented the fact that he was turned into this kind of national icon. "A much more complicated and rounded picture emerges when you can look at the manuscripts already at King's alongside the Schroder Collection.

  • Sudan's pyramids, nearly as grand as Egypt's, go unvisited

    AL-BEGRAWIYA, Sudan (AP) — The small, steep pyramids rising up from the desert hills of northern Sudan resemble those in neighboring Egypt, but unlike the famed pyramids of Giza, the Sudanese site is largely deserted. The pyramids at Meroe, some 200 kilometers (125 miles) north of Sudan's capital, Khartoum, are rarely visited despite being a UNESCO World Heritage site like those in Egypt. Sanctions against the government of longtime President Omar al-Bashir over Sudan's long-running internal conflicts limit its access to foreign aid and donations, while also hampering tourism.

Leicester Crown Court has heard that the couple had a 'troubled' relationship. Today, under cross examination by prosecutor Charles Miskin QC, Walters denied using repeated physical violence against his wife because she rejected his excessive demands for sex. The jury was told that, after one violent episode around Christmas 2013, Mrs Walters told her doctor that she faced on average "weekly abuse by her husband".
