Grand History

by Exbugonaut on May 17, 2007

An example of how WS can make even 9th-century English hisotry interesting: "The prudent king sought peace and offered an indemnity. The Danes took the gold, and "swore upon the Holy Ring" they would depart and keep a faithful peace. With a treachery to which all adjectives are unequal they sudenly darted away and siezed Exeter.... But let all heathen beware of breaking oaths! A frightful tempest smote the sea army." Irresistable!
