I so enjoyed my Context Talk on William the Bastard/Conqueror with Alexander Wilson today. Although I've read many books about William, I nonetheless learned new insights into his personality, along with getting to see photos of the castles, cathedrals, abbeys and many other structures he built. I learned more about him as a person, as a husband, as a soldier, and as a ruler. He is a fascinating man and brings together the Vikings and the present-day Queen, and much more. It was 1-1/2 hours well-spent.
