Right to Reply – the 12th Century

wordcloudAuthor Annie Whitehead invited E.M. Powell, Edward Ruadh Butler and me to “slug it out” on her blog, Casting Light upon the Shadow a few weeks ago as part of her “Right to Reply” series.

Our topic — one near and dear to each of our hearts — The 12th Century.

Annie asked us

  • Who is your ‘champion’ 12th century (non-fictional) character, and why?
  • What was the most significant event of the century, and why?
  • Which was the most decisive battle/skirmish/siege of the century, and why?
  • You’re going into battle – which would be our weapon of choice, and why?

E.M. and Edward have some convincing arguments, but maybe you will agree with me! Do check out the blog post.

There will be more to come, so sign up for Char’s Newsletter. It will be used – sparingly – to offer exclusive content and and to let you be the first to know about special offers.
