Geography: Newcastle upon Tyne

Key points of interest in Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, UK. In Norman times Robert Curthose, eldest son of William the Conqueror, built a castle at the site of the present-day Newcastle. Clearly, the castle was new, hence the name (Simpson, 2009). From Newcastle Rangers’ rather shaky beginnings in 1878, on the Drill Field in Gateshead, Newcastle United has obtained great popularity in the football sphere, leading to Sir Matt Busby stating, “If you put 11 black-and-white dogs on the field at Newcastle you’d get 30,000 coming to watch.” (cited in Bolam, 2004, n.p.). SOURCES Bolam, Mike (Ed.). 2004. The little book of Newcastle United: 150 black-and-white quotes. London: Carlton Books Ltd. Simpson, David. 2009. Newcastle upon Tyne. Roman origins: Pons Aeslius, Condercum and Segedunum. Available: http://www.englandsnortheast.co.uk/NewcastleuponTyne.html [2014, March 14]. Enjoy this puzzle?
