comment Was the assassination of Franz Ferdinand in 1914 captured on film?
huntleyarchives.com/… try this link, as it says in the synopsis 'stills of the assassination of archduke Ferdinand. I think the idea that the assassination was filmed is pretty irresistible, especially as the stills seem to be taken from a film, though why no extant footage remains is a mystery.

Oh, and by offering this as an answer rather than a comment, I don't expect it to qualify for the bounty, rather I simply wanted to help you in your search. Good luck with it.

comment What religions (other than Judaism) worshiped only one god?
Flinders Petrie speculated that perhaps monotheism was the norm, that tribes started off believing in a single god and only when they assimilated into other tribes and adopted their gods did polytheism become the norm.

comment Can the current Monarch in UK be overthrown or otherwise replaced?
The assertion that the role of the British royal family is largely ceremonial and of limited power does not stand scrutiny. Members of the Royal family exercise power in order to protect their interests against the interests of parliament. theguardian.com/uk/2013/jan/14/secret-papers-royals-veto-bills The Royal perogative provides extensive powers for the Roayl family. independent.co.uk/voices/…

T.E.D. I don't think it correct to edit my answer with a link to a commercial organisation. Its available from a number of vendors both online and not and I believe I gave enough information for the questioner to find the book should they wish without promoting a particular vendor. Any link to a third party should have been posted as a comment. Your edit to my post suggests my support for that organisation and that was not what I intended when I posted my answer.

comment Why did the United Kingdom industrialize first?
I have to take issue with the asssertion that the first steam engines were used for the mills, the first steam engines were used for pumping water out of tin mines in Cornwall.
