1276 pages is the length of "The Count of Monte Crisco " (Penguin Classics) by Alexandre Dumas. If you read at 250 words per minute (?) it will take you 31 hours to complete.

Sadly this measure has still not been achieved in England, in practice.

1282:

From Wikipedia the Free Encyclopedia:
March – Dafydd ap Gruffydd, brother of Prince of Wales Llywelyn ap Gruffudd, attacks an English castle; his brother feels compelled to support him, despite being unprepared for war. Their actions lead to the final English conquest of Wales, by King Edward I of England.

Wasn't the goal to get the numbers lined up with the number of posts?

Yes, it would be nice to do so.

1283 AD After the aforementioned conquest of Wales construction of Caernarfon Castle, Conwy Castle, and Harlech Castle is begun by King Edward I of England, as a system of defences against possible future Welsh uprisings.

1284 AD Prince Edward son of Edward is born, he will be the first Pince of Wales as the heir to the English (and later British) King.

Oh is that what you all want?

1286 - the number after 1285.

1287 - the number after that.

1288 - the next number in this sequence.

1289 - one thousand, two hundred and eighty nine, in numeral form.

Well, I'd prefer it along the lines of:

1290 AD The University of Coimbra is founded in Lisbon, Portugal by King Denis of Portugal; it moves to Coimbra in 1308. He also commands that Portuguese will be the country's official language instead of Latin.

1291 AD The Siege of Acre ends when Al-Ashraf Khalil of Egypt captures Acre, thus exterminating the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem (the final Christian landholding remaining from the Crusades) and ending the Ninth Crusade and effectively all Crusades, by eliminating the possibility of further attacks on the Holy Land. There will be 627 years until a Christian ruler will be governing the Holy Land.

From the two of them, Duomo is much more impressive and majestic. I didn't realise at the time that both churches were exactly 700 years old when I visited them. Thanks, Wusti, for awaking some old memories.

1296 AD King John I of Bohemia is born. He will be remembered as the Blind King of Bohemia. His condition will not stop him from fighting (alas, and dying) in the Battle of Crecy in 1346

Oh hey this is actually a big one:

1297: Battle of Stirling Bridge - The Scottish armies of Andrew Moray and William Wallace defeat the English.

(This event is rather badly dramatized in the film "Braveheart" starring Mel Gibson).
