The most famous mystical stone structure in England is Stonehenge. This is a double circle of standing stones on Salisbury Plain which is all that remains of a larger and more complex structure. Its purpose is unclear but it may have been built for religious or astronomical purposes.

How was the worlds largest diamond shipped to England in 1905?

According to the citation in Wikipedia, below: "In 1905, transport from South Africa to England posed a security problem. Detectives from London were placed on a steamboat that was rumoured to carry the stone, but this was a diversionary tactic. The stone on that ship was a fake, meant to attract those who would be interested in stealing it. The actual diamond was sent to England in a plain box via parcel post, albeit registered."

Did the Normans have slaves?

The Normans in England did not have slaves. However, they did have a social structure called the 'Feudal System'. The lowest order of people in this system were 'Serfs'. Serfs were effectively tied to the land that they farmed. and had to give part of their crop/harvest to the local baron. NB In England, throughout history, slavery has never been part of the social structure. Also England was the first country to pass the 'Abolition of Slavery Act' in 1833, thirty years before the American and thir Civil War(when slavery was abolished). This was to try and stop the slave trade across the Atlantic from Africa top the America. Slaves involved in the slave trade never/rarely came to England. The Latin for 'Slave' is 'Servus' , from which we have the words, 'Servant', Service,' and or courser 'Serf' (Norman French, not English).

What is the English emblem?

The "emblem" of England is the Rose and the Thistle. Theories abound as to the origin of this ubiquitous symbol of English glory. Most commonly attributed to the Crusades and the War of the Roses. More romantic historians have mythologized it a symbol of King Arthur and the mystical "Camelot". The Rose certainly, but the thistle is Scottish. The flag of England is the cross of St George, a red cross on a white ground. Indeed, however the Act of Settlement of 1701 established Scotland, Ireland and England as the United Kingdom. Therefore the Rose and Thistle became a symbol of national unity as well. It should also be pointed out the flags of Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England are flown under the Union Jack. Of course the Union Jack is the most recognizable symbol of England to the generations that followed the Act of Settlement.Of course the Union Jack always enjoys precedence above any other flag of the UK and most commonwealth countries. _______ The rose is widely regarded (at least in England itself) as the emblem of England, the thistle is a key emblem of Scotland. (By the way, the Act of Settlement 1701 regulated the succession to the throne of England. The acts uniting England and Scotland were the Acts of Union 1707 and the act uniting Great Britain and Ireland was the Act of Union 1800. - See links).
