Bayeux, Bayeux



On this, the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings and the Norman Conquest, I have found a gem of a song that explains the whole thing, for the uninitiated...

With apologies to Mr Justin Trousersnake (who I am certain would approve, actually) here's William the Conqueror by "The History Teachers"!



I love it!

  5. Brilliant, thank you so much for sharing very witty, although I don't know the original Timberlake song. We then checked out their Trojan war/ Tainted Love mash up which had us hooting with delight and Nancy Sinatra style take on Pompeii to the tune of 'Bang Bang my baby shot me down'. These guys are brilliant, smart (historically accurate) lyrics, an ingenious use of songs, really cool:) - thanks again kindly inlaw this has Clarke Minor and I properly tickled,

    Hugs
