The Hammer of the English.....

DVD viewing this week is Simon Schama's 'A History of Britain'...I've watched it a few times before but it is so good it stands up to repeated viewing.

Last night, Edward Longshanks (Edward I) aka 'The Hammer of the Scots' and of course his nemesis in the shape of William Wallace.

Simon Schama has a very dry sense of humour, and from last night's episode this was my favourite part....

"Here he is, the standard issue freedom fighter of the imagination...
the give 'em hell whiskers
the save me Jesus eyes
the hamstrings from hell"
