Geography: Manchester

Key points of interest in Manchester, Greater Manchester, England. Manchester derived its name from Mamucium, the Roman name for the 1st century-settlement and wooden fort that was built by the Roman army on a plateau about a mile south of the present cathedral around 80 AD (Lambert, [s.d.]). Mamucium itself is a Latinised form of the Celtic meaning ‘breast-shaped hill’, which the name was probably assigned due to the plateau resembling a breast (“History of Manchester”, [s.d.]). QUOTATION According to Chris Lethbridge, TV producer and director, in "Change and Contradiction" (Diverse City, 1994), "[b]y no stretch of the imagination is Manchester a picturesque city. It is however, emphatically if unconventionally beautiful. In common with all things beautiful...It is fundamentally flawed. It has a compulsion to preen and show off. It is narcissistic, contrary and wayward, and yet you cannot help but love it. It is both admirable and maddening." SOURCES Lambert, Tim. [s.d.]. A brief history of Manchester, England. In A World History Encyclopedia. Available: http://www.localhistories.org/manchester.html [2012, June 29]. History of Manchester. Wikipedia. Available: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Manchester [2014, March 14]. Enjoy this puzzle?
