History Made Fun
on October 29, 2006
Terry Jones and Alan Ereira deconstruct myths of medieval England. This is achieved with trademark humour and serious analysis, a combination not usually found in history books. The book is divided into chapters that examine stereotypical personalities of the time: the peasant, monk, knight, etc.
I was reminded how history is shaped by its storytellers and I realize that my own mid 20th century schooling followed conventional English lines without interest in other points of view.
This is a quick and fun read that will lead you to further examinations.
