Extractions: Medieval History Originally, a castle was a fortress built to protect strategic locations from enemy attack or to serve as a military base for invading armies. The earliest castles in Europe were constructed of earthwork and timber. Dating as far back as the 9th century, these early structures were often built over ancient Roman foundations. Over the next three centuries, wooden forts evolved into imposing stone walls with narrow windows and high parapets . By the 13th century, lofty stone towers were popping up across Europe. People seeking protection from invading armies built villages around established castles. Local nobility took the safest residences for themselves inside the castle walls. Castles became homes, and also served as important political centers. As Europe moved into the Renaissance, the role of castles became divided. Some were used as military fortresses, and were controlled by a monarch. Others were unfortified palaces, mansions, or manor homes and served no military function.

Extractions: Denmark on the Web It is a widespread opinion in Denmark that the world's richer nations must assist the poorer and less developed countries and that Denmark should make its sizeable contribution to cooperation with the developing world. In 1992 Danes contributed one per cent of the Danish GNP to development assistance and so are among the top-three donor countries. Danish development assistance has its origins in modest official grants to the assistance programmes begun by private organizations after the Second World War and contributions to the United Nations programme for technical assistance to the Third World. The Danish Parliament in 1962 passed its first act on international cooperation for economic development, but it was not until 1971 that a new act included objectives for official development cooperation. By now Denmark, as mentioned above, is more than fulfilling the United Nations target to contribute 0.7 per cent of the country's gross national product (GNP) in the form of official aid to developing countries. Danish development assistance is bilateral as well as multilateral, and in 1992 the total assistance amounted to DKK 8.3 billion.

It's called "Ten Centuries of Architecture" and allows visitors to stroll through six unique exhibition areas housed in the Castle's rooms. Prague Castle itself has lived through many of the styles covered in the exhibition, and bears traces of each of them. The exhibition's chief curator, Miroslav Repka, says nowhere in Prague would there be a better venue for the project than Prague Castle: "We're in a place that gives us the chance of displaying all the exhibits in an authentic environment - from the Romanesque period up to the 20th century - so we can show architecture within architecture if you like. I think this is definitely something that other countries can envy us for."

Spring 1999 Contens: 600 years after the Death of Peter Parler The Royal Garden The architecture of Prague Castle as it stands today is unimaginable without its surrounding ring of greenery. And the jewel amongst the Castle gardens is the Royal Garden. For centuries the Royal Garden was kept as a closed garden belonging to the seat of the king or later the President of the Republic. Until November 1989 it was seldom open, but at Easter in 1990 the President of the Republic, Vaclav Havel, decided that the garden should be open to the public and should start to give up its secrets.

Extractions: Swedish national romantic architecture An article by Niclas Fogwall At the beginning of the 20th century the new generation architects had enough of the eclecticism - the copying of older styles - and were eagerly searching for what they called "a modern style". Despite the flourishing Jugend (Art Nouveau) style on the European continent that partly affected the Swedish architects, the new generation of Swedish architects wanted to create a style of their own as they saw the Jugend style too international for their taste. Similar to the Jugend architects, they were looking for old handicraftship but with a genuine national style, influenced by the buildings from the renassaince period of the 16th century. The result of their achievements became what we today call "Swedish national romantic architecture", which had its era of prosperity around 1910. I will now explain the story behind the style. At the end of the 19th century, the hopeful period of internationalism and free trade was replaced by period of increased protectionism, i.e. protection of the own country's production against foreign competition. The European countries closed themselves within their own borders. The great powers formed alliances to strengthen their positions. At one side there was the old great power England, and on the other side the new great power Germany. It was now only the igniting spark that was lacking to make the first world war a fact. In Sweden, the emigration to the United States undermined the national self-esteem. This and the growing foreign competition, caused the Swedish farmers to lead the way to carry through duties on foreign merchandises with the slogan "Sweden to the Swedish". Even though they were in minority they managed to force through their demands.
