Funny/ Strange Things Found in Wiki History Articles

Recommended Posts

I keep coming across oddities, be they funny or just strange, sometimes intentionally contradicting. Its a not so well thought out free for all.

 

This week:

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliament_of_England

 

Following Edward's escape from captivity, Montfort was defeated and killed at the Battle of Evesham in 1265. Henry's authority was restored and the Provisions of Oxford were forgotten, but this was nonetheless a turning point in the history of the Parliament of England. Although he was not obliged by statute to do so, Henry summoned the Commons to parliament three times between September 1268 and April 1270. However, this was not a significant turning point in the history of parliamentary democracy.

At the Amphiareion, in addition to the presumed annual festival, Greater Amphiareia were celebrated in an agonistic festival of athletic games, every fifth year.

Anyone up for a agnostic festival with athletic games? Everyone proudly stumped and uncommitted either way?
