St Eval Church, the Chancel
England

Dating originally from about 1200, much of what you see now in the church of StEval is largely of the 15th century, although the north wall and transept are probably earlier. The tower was rebuilt and porch added in the 1720s and there was much restoration done in 1889. The 15th century wagon roof is original and has many finely carved bosses, seven of them featuring the 'green man'. The bench ends and remains of the rood screen in the north aisle are also 15th century. The Royal Arms on the north wall of the nave are probably of Charles II and were restored in the 18th century.

During the Second World War the church was the church of the local RAF station and there are various badges displayed on the church walls of squadrons that flew from the aerodrome in the parish. On the north wall there is a memorial to a Shackleton aircrew lost in North Borneo. The memorial was moved from RAF Changi with a font cover (that now in use) when the 205 Squadron withdrew from Singapore.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
