I suspect it's me who has changed!

It certainly tells in great depth what is often mearly skated over at school as a tussle between 'Bad King John's and recalcitrant Barons. Any ideas of a romantic setting on Runnymeade have been blown away too. Thank you David Starkey.

    [Magna Carta: The True Story Behind the Charter] Kindle í By David Starkey Appallingly written drivel. At least that is the impression after 10 pages, which was as many as could bear of this school boy level rubbish. Who would believe that an editor allowed a phrase such as “Phillip.. was also better at being bad than John”. Having stated he would confine himself to a decade of his
