My wife Karen posted this on Facebook today:

History — enjoy it while it’s still “true”.

Here’s a call to rewrite history by Wikipedia (who I would have thought already had plenty of that without encouraging yet more fantasy). D’ya suppose the value of the 1911 Encyclopedia will continue to rise?

3 Feedbacks on "Rewriting the Middle Ages"


The Middle Ages are still sort of vague. Current identities, races, etc were not well defined. There were no pictures or DNA tests. Nationality didn’t seem to mean all that much. “Class” or personal “references” mattered a lot. The very intelligent maintained a “front’ while they did what they had to. Some faced exile or ended up dancing on the fire. Real easy to add some “Super Heroes” into that stew.


I don’t think Wikipedia is calling for this. It’s a new website; everything “wiki” is not Wikipedia
