But of course the English would prefer to think it's the oldest.
That's what the news article was saying so that is why I titled that  
post in such a fashion.

The Daily Mail was corrected in the comments section and then the  
newspaper closed comments
so we all can't write in and offer earlier titles.

The next post with the Manchester news article was much better and  
more accurate.
