First use of the word 'fuck' found in 1310 court case

Dr Paul Booth of Keele University spotted the name in ‘Roger Fuckebythenavele’ in the Chester county court plea rolls from December 8, 1310, and believes it was a nickname.

“Either this refers to an inexperienced copulator, referring to someone trying to have sex with the navel, or its a rather extravagant explanation for a dimwit, someone so stupid they think this that is the way to have sex.”

Cupola di Santa Maria del Fiore, Firenze (Dome of St. Mary of the Flower Cathedral, Florence)

 The dome of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, Italy, built between 1420 and 1436, is still the largest brick-dome in the world (outer 54m/177.16ft, inner 45m/147.64ft).

The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (St. Mary of the Flower Cathedral) was built between 1294-95 and 1314-15 by Arnolfo di Cambio (c. 1240 - 1300/1310), but no one for over a century had any idea on how to complete the enormous dome, until the work was commissioned to Filippo Brunelleschi (1377-1446) and Lorenzo Ghiberti (1378-1455), but the first oneremained soon the only architect. His work of art is famous as one of the most daring masterpieces of the world:  the dome is actually a double building, with a smaller dome inside the external one, probably to strengthen and unload its structure.

The frescoes inside the dome date back to 1572-79 (about one century later the fulfillment of the dome) and were made by Giorgio Vasari (1511-1574) and Federico Zuccari (1540-1609). The area is the largest ever frescoed in the world: 3.600 mq (38,750 sq ft).

A little fun fact: they say that Baccio d'Agnolo (1462-1543), master builder of the Cathedral, was appointed in 1512 to build the dome’s gallery. The work was suspended in 1512 because of Florentine people’s disapproval and Michelangelo’s opposition (his plan had been refused in the tender notice). When his opinion was requested, he remarked the gallery looked like a “crickets cage”. Baccio, very annoyed for the witty remark, left the work unfinished. I don’t know whether the story it’s true or not, but the gallery is still finished only on one side (see next to last + last image).
