BOOK REVIEW: Spies, Sadists, and Sorcerers: The History You Weren’t Taught in School

Excellent summary of several assumed bits of horrendously ignorant and wrong views of history and famous historical characters like Richard the Lionheart (1157-1199). That King is considered an example of "Englishness", avoided England like the plague and didn't speak ANY ENGLISH!  :o  He was a Frenchman that said "he would have sold London if he had found a buyer". 


Feast your eyes on REAL historical facts like the fact that the Middle Ages were NOT "dark" and the Medieval period was NOT "uncivilized" compared to life before the fall of the Roman Empire.

Stop believing all that silly stuff you were taught by Hollywood! Most of it is not even close to the actual history and the actual doings of the influential people of that time.

And, by the way, the English were every bit as brutal as the Vikings. And the Vikings, on the whole, were far more literate than the English! And the Vikings had soap and combs too! They were not the unkempt folk the English tried to make them out to be.

The hyped up happy talk Anglo Saxonized view of history is mostly propaganda.

For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
