'I think what is British about me is my feelings and awareness of others and their situations. We don't interfere. If we are heartbroken, we don't scream in your face with tears â€“ we go home and cry on our own.â€ These thoughtful words were said by the English actor and author Michael Caine, best known as the British movie icon.
The Port of Museums and Monuments
Sunderland is a city in Tyne and Wear, North East England. Historically, there were three large areas that were considered as ancient Sunderland, but a small fishing village located toward the mouth of the river was given the town charter in 1179. Over the centuries, Sunderland was well known as a port where you were able to trade coal and salt. The locals say that a person who is born in Sunderland is called a Mackem. On the one hand, this ancient name is said to have come from the Victorian era. On the other hand, locals also disagree that the Mackem might be a part of war time joke about the sinking ships that were built on the River Wear â€“ 'We makÊ»em and they sinkÊ»emâ€.
