Thanks for that, Frank, although it's bit 'coals to Newcastle' in my case, as I've always been a bit of a History buff meself......although I will admit to being mainly interested in the Tudor & Victorian eras.
Btw, I see folklore as being fiction in the main & history being well documented fact.
With you there David although I was interested in the Persian Empire and early Greek, quite a lot of that is documented and some folk lore which when you consider a lot of the books written about those times came hundreds of years later as written down folk stories it makes you wonder, thank goodness for Archeology.
It drives me mad to read books written about the war by young researchers that get it all so wrong, we all have our crosses to bear.
