    It seems like every medieval battle in movies has flaming arrows being sent at the enemy and those big fiery, spiky things rolling thru the battlefield.

  6. Where did the rumours that Margaret thatcher was 1/4 Ugandan originate?

    Even when asked in the commons she didn’t deny it.

Both passed when I was a teenager. I know a little about what one of them did in the war, and almost nothing about the other one (he didn’t talk about it.) I’d like to learn more about what my great-grandfathers did during the war, but I’m not sure where to start.

  14. What is the word for when medieval peasants were forced to work for periods of time? Governments would enlist them and force them to help construct infrastructure.
