1066 and all That – Sellar and Yeatman

A Memorable History of ENGLAND, comprising all parts you remember, including  103 GOOD THINGS, 5 BAD KINGS, and 2 GENUINE DATES.

The subtitle is more or less the review of the book.  This classic comedy take on the History of England as remembered by a schoolboy who didn’t really pay attention in class, but had certain turns of phrase stick in the head.

If you like the Monty Python Movies and/or Horrible Histories kind of thing, this is a very funny book.  And the more you know about history, the funnier it gets.

Oh, the other date is that of Caesar’s invasion.
