  1. The Dutch tried to invade England in 1666, getting as far as Chatham, where they stole the Royal Charles, England's flagship man-of-war.
  2. Barbara Castlemaine engaged a seductive warfare on Frances Stewart, including a theatrical same-sex wedding.
  3. London streets were still smoking several months after the Great Fire.
  4. Longitude experiments included using an injured dog and sympathetic magic to tell the time.
