I take 1066 as a starting point! Where was that big battle again?
Not in Wessex. We wouldn't have let that type of thing go down.
Senlac Hill is a good name to know for pub quizzes.
Better than that - Ho did Senlac get its name?
Loving the banter on this thread!
Two quickies - I hated History at school but love it now (was taught very dry facts and figures and monarchs), and I'm ashamed to say that I love the 'William, william, Henry, Stephen' song! If only HH had been around I might have been OK at History...
More helpfully, thinking about Hastings and Senlac Hill I can THOROUGHLY recommend it as a primary school trip. We took our own children one day and the facility to walk around the battle field hearing the story with sound effects, and unfolding as you reach different points was a MASSIVE hit with them (and us!)> Very child-friendly visitor centre too.
Andrew do i have an old booklet of yours??? 50 maths websites or somerthing like that?? Are you on twitter??
Oneof the boys in my class named PrinceCharles' sons as 'William and Horrid Henry'!
She was, since any wife of a king can be so titled (as would happen with Camilla). However, she wasn't the sovereign, so doesn't get counted in the ordering.
Which is what I meant, but couldn't spell it properly...was a bit pished then!
