Free-standing events

Newly-added free-standing events run from early 1136 (the death of the poet Princess Gwenllian) to early 2013 (the equalization of the sexes in the line of succession to the British throne, and the London Zoo's pairing of poets or novelists with scientists in presentations on rare breeds of animal). In between, the new events deal with leisure activities and scientific advances, women voting in local elections (1843), "the first modern globalized financial crisis" (which began in 1873), and with events in the history of the USA, China, and British law on abortion.
