When the bones were uncovered by archaeologists on Guernsey they were found to be of a porpoise AlamyThe body was laid to rest with the greatest care in a deep grave dug into rock and aligned east to west in keeping with Christian tradition. When the bones were uncovered, however, they were not those of a medieval monk, but of a porpoise. Archaeologists on Guernsey were looking for traces of 14th century hermits on a 17m-long outcrop near Perelle called Chapelle dom Hue.
A group of German officers being held at Camp 198. Eighty-three tunnelled out in 1945 C&T/BNPSIt is the great escape that no one has ever heard of and it never stood much chance of being turned into a Hollywood movie. In March 1945, 83 German officers tunnelled out of their hut in a prisoner of war camp in Bridgend, south Wales, while their guards dozed.
The tank known as “Fray Bentos” slid into a shell crater and became stuck THETANKMUSEUM/BNPSTheir tank was known as Fray Bentos, after the cans of corned beef that fed the British army. For three days and two nights the nine men inside tank F41 fought off waves of attacks by the Germans after becoming trapped in a shell crater in no man’s land at Passchendaele. The crew knew that they would be shelled by their own side if the tank looked like falling into enemy hands.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
