Bolshy and violent ladies are very interesting, in my experience! That's a very good call though, Tuppence, very under-portrayed, I would think. Lots of scope for informing the public too, with the force-feeding and such they had to endure.
It's not UK but I fancy the conquistadores.

Did they have big pants? I know they had big pistolas and a white stripe across their noses. At least, I saw that on TV once, a very long time ago it seems to me now...! Stand and deliver!

I like Medieval cos of the nice big pants. Oh, and the way you could get on by marrying a nice rich person and not feel bad about it, or the way you could get on by killing a nice rich person and not feel bad about it. I like the way you can use siege weapons to throw cows over castle walls, the cas...

Re: the pictures, copyright rights(!) expire after a hundred years, meaning that unless the pictures were produced in 1939 specifically for the book, it's very likely they are public domain!
That's a good website for all sorts of pics!

[stepping away briskly...]
I just need to polish my hairstyle, unfortunately. It raises the question though, how can I organise a pudding bowl haircut with nothing to go in the bow!! I seem to have managed the Norman "fringe over the top of the head" look OK, though.

OK, I can see what all the fuss was about now! Didn't read it all (no popcorn), but I get the gist! I wasn't saying the ladies can't fight, just that they wouldn't be there.

I'll leave it there now... she's behind me, isn't she?

I was only asking! Couldn't resist that one, just pointing out that authenticity is relative!

Q - someone close likes your hair long? you lucky, lucky b*st'd, as Monty P would have it! Dave B - that pic looks forayn, with the tube-horned bull banner. where's it from? Like Tuppence says, they're all fully armoured and look flush, so they must have a few quid spare for fashionable hairdressers...

Didn't mean to offend, Q, hope you didn't take it that way! What I was getting at was that they make very nice handles for grabbing that noble lord by when we are all "in the press", and as such very obviously dubious! Hiding it all under an arming cap or similar is, of course, very practical, and m...

I saw the "Landschnecht" on a stall doing puppet jousting things for kids, would that let him off? Of course the tattoo on the side of his head may well get him straight back into jail....

What I'd like to ask is what's with all them ponytails on blokes?
