Trivia!

Last week's question was a visual clue, and I asked:- What famous artisan is honored by today's Google Doodle, seen above?

Banker Chick correctly identified Faberge as the artisan in question, and the eggs are indeed famous for being the traditional (and costly) gifts made for the Czar of Russia who traditionally gave them to members of his family. Anyone admitted to the pleasure of seeing them in person knows how truly stunning they are.

This week's question is:- Samuel Pepys is famous as a 17th-century diarist, in particular for writing about what two major misfortunes in British history?
