Terry Jones’ Medieval Lives – The Minstrel

I am obsessed with what we were taught vs what we learn to be true.

There's a book? Oh, now I need to buy the book.

This BBC program “Terry Jones’ Medieval Lives” combines a Monty Python animation style with myth busting about history. I watched The Minstrel episode for research into my Scribe Shoppe series, but it’s pretty illuminating as to which stories prevailed and how people were portrayed within them. The Minstrel/Troubadour was the PR Man of the Day, says Terry Jones. This episode goes well with The King, and what we think we know about The Richards vs the reality.
