Caption: Thomas Paine (1737-1809), English-born US activist, philosopher and revolutionary. Paine was born in Thetford, Norfolk, emigrating to the British colonies in North America in 1774 just before the American Revolution. His publications 'Common Sense' (1776) and 'The American Crisis' (1776-83) influenced and supported the revolution that saw the American colonies break from Britain. Paine then lived in the France in the 1790s, publishing another pro-revolutionary work 'Rights of Man'(1791) that influenced the French Revolution. His other philosophical works include 'The Age of Reason' (1793-4) and 'Agrarian Justice' (1795).
