I’m often asked where I find my research material. I use the same sources as everyone else, books, historical documents, and the internet. Obviously, I have to be a little more discerning when it comes to my web sources, after all, if someone decides that all castles were built by an alien named Roo, that’s hardly a fact. I would
say it falls under the heading of unrestrained revisionist history.
One branch of the internet I do enjoy is YouTube. They have some wonderful, well-researched documentaries from reliable sources such as the BBC or the History Channel. They give me an opportunity to view the past, not just how I imagine it from dry texts but how experts in the fields of history and archeology see it. I find this both inspiring and informative.
One of my favorite series is Terry Jones’ Medieval Lives, not only is this series educational but the humour makes it fun to watch.
This is my favorite episode - The Damsel. I hope you enjoy it.
