389 BC

Year 389 BC was a year of the pre-Julian Roman calendar. At the time, it was known as the Year of the Tribunate of Poplicola, Esquilinus, Mamercinus and Albinus; the denomination 389 BC for this year has been used since the early medieval period, when the Anno Domini calendar era became the prevalent method in Europe for naming years. A Spartan expeditionary force under King Agesilaus II crosses the Gulf of Corinth to attack Acarnania, an ally of the anti-Spartan coalition. Agesilaus is able to draw them into a pitched battle, in which the Acarnanians are routed; the Athenian general, leads a force of triremes to levy tribute from cities around the Aegean and support Rhodes, where a democratic government is struggling against Sparta. On this campaign, Thrasybulus captures Byzantium, imposes a duty on ships passing through the Hellespont, collects tribute from many of the Aegean Islands. Magna Grecia Battle of the Elleporus and the capture of Kroton by Dionysius I of Syracuse Wu Qi, the Prime Minister of the State of Chu, enacts his first series of political and martial reforms.

Wu Qi gains the ire and distrust of Chu officials and aristocratic elite who are against his crusades to sweep up corruption in the state and limit their power. He is assassinated in 381 BC at the funeral of King Diao of Chu, although his assassins are executed shortly after by the newly enthroned King Su of Chu; this is the latest possible date for the compilation of the historical text Zuo Zhuan, attributed to a blind historian known as Zuo Qiuming.

HMS Pocahontas (1780)

HMS Pochahontas was the Virginia letter of marque Pocahontas, launched in 1777. The British Royal Navy captured her in 1780, she participated in the battle of Fort Royal, Martinique, in April 1781. In May she was renamed Pachahunta; the Navy sold her at Jamaica in 1782. Pocahontas was fitted out at Fredericksburg. Captain Eleazer Callender of the Virginia Navy ship Dragon resigned his commission on 20 July 1779 to take command of Pocahontas, he brought with him his First Lieutenant on Dragon. At the time, "Virginia's naval vessels were poorly armed, incompetently manned and ill-fitted for service."The 74-gun ship HMS Alcide captured Pocahontas on 12 September 1780. The Royal Navy purchased Pocahontas on 2 October 1780. On 29-30 April 1781 Pochahontas, Commander Edward Tyrell Smith, was at the inconclusive battle of Fort Royal. On 1 May, as his squadron sailed from Martinique, the French followed. HMS Torbay and Pocahontas were lagging and within range of the enemy guns; the French directed their fire at Torbay.

Hood sent HMS Amazon to tow Pocahontas out of range. The French broke off their pursuit. Hood transferred Smith to command HMS Centaur, Captain Nott having been killed in the battle, placed John Davall Burr in command of Pocahontas. Burr commissioned her and on 28 May she was renamed Pacahunta. Admiral Rodney did not confirm Burr transferred to the sloop HMS Jane. Commander Alexander Inglis Cochrane replaced Burr. In December Commander Isaac Coffin, of HMS Avenger exchanged ships with Cochrane and took command of Pacahunter in New York, he sailed her to Barbados, where her arrived in January 1782. There he joined Rear Admiral Hood in HMS Barfleur. Coffin participated in the battle of St Kitts and returned to Pochahontas; some accounts placed Coffin in Barfleur at the battle of the Saintes, but it is not possible to confirm that. Coffin and the crew of Pacahunta helped in fighting a great fire in St. John's, his service service earned him the thanks of the House of Assembly. After HMS Santa Mónica wrecked on Tortola on 1 April, Pacahunta helped convey part of her crew to Jamaica.

At Jamaica Coffin was appointed to command of the 74-gun HMS Shrewsbury. He was confirmed in the rank of Captain on 13 June. Commander David Gould succeeded Coffin in command of Pachahunta; the Navy sold her at Jamaica on 26 July 1782.

Bury Walls

Bury Walls is an Iron Age hillfort about 1 mile south-east of Weston-under-Redcastle, in Shropshire, England. It has been a scheduled monument since 17 December 1929; the fort is on a promontory facing part of the southern escarpment of a sandstone ridge. The altitude is 160 metres; the enclosure is 380 metres east to west. There are steep slopes on all sides except the north, where there are two massive ramparts and ditches, the inner rampart being about 7.8 metres above the interior. Elsewhere there is a single rampart around the edge of the promontory, about 3.0 metres along the east side and up to 1.8 metres along the west side. From the enclosure there are extensive views to the south, there is a natural spring within the enclosure; the main entrance is near the north-east corner: there is an inturned entrance about 5 metres wide. In 1930 there was some excavation of the site by E. W. Bowcock, it was found. To the right of the entrance there were two areas of broken stone indicating hearths, a possible quern-stone.

Near the centre of the interior, foundations of a building were discovered, thought at the time to be medieval, but more thought to be the remains of a Romano-Celtic temple. In 1999 and 2000 there were topographical surveys. In the northern part of the interior, there was evidence of a series of large concentric terraces. Hillforts in Britain Geology of Shropshire
