Author 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.
