I've just finished The Greatest Knight. Found it a bit difficult to get into at first and sometimes had to look back to remind myself what part of England or France I was in, but once I got into it I was engrossed. It was fascinating reading about Eleanor of Aquitaine too, what a lady. I wish my sch...

I love the extended versions of the LOTR films,think they are better than the cinema versions although it's good to be able to take a break, especially during the 3rd one!

I've just found this board via Elizabeth Chadwick's website.
