HAMWIC (also known as Hamtun) is the Anglo-Saxon name for Southampton. Saxon Hamwic was situated around what are now the Queensland, Belvidere, Chapel and Crosshouse areas of the city. The middle Saxon (c.700-850) town was situated around what are now Northam and St Marys.  It was an important port trading with Scandinavia, France, the Low Countries and the Rhineland and a densely populated community of merchants and craftsmen. It was evidently also of  administrative importance  having given its name to the county Hamtunscire (Hampshire). It declined in the ninth century apparently as a result of economic and political change brought about by the Vikings. hamwic

The ST MARY'S building is named after the nearby St. Mary’s church from which both the area as a whole, and the street the college’s main entrance is on both also take their name. Southampton football club was also originally founded at the church from where they take the nickname “the Saints” and the St. Mary’s stadium name. The present Church is actually the sixth St. Mary’s church on the site of the Saxon town of Hamwick.

 The Supermarine SPITFIRE was a British single-seat fighter aircraft used extensively by the Royal Air Force (RAF) during the Second World War.

 It was designed by R. J. Mitchell at Supermarine Aviation Works in Woolston with the first prototype being tested at Eastleigh Aerodrome (now Southampton Airport) on 5 March 1936. Between July and September 1940, during the Battle of Britain, the Spitfire played a crucial role in combating the German Luftwaffe in their attempt to gain control of the skies of Britain before launching their much anticipated invasion. A combination of the RAF pilots’ bravery and heroism and the Spitfire’s speed and manoeuvrability struck a devastating blow to the German aircraft ranged against them. On 17th September 1940 Hitler postponed his planned invasion of Britain indefinitely. Tragically Mitchell never lived to see his invention flourish, dying of cancer on 11 June 1937 at the age of just 42.

Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what they're talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe you're not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
