The Normans should never have beheaded Gwenllian...

Gwenllian seems very courageous.

This video was very well done, SFA, I watched it to the end! I had no idea of this kind of history for the longbow, certainly the weapon of this day in Wales.

I also noted the skill of the narrator; his pronunciation of the Welsh names and places...is his pronunciation accurate, to your knowledge?

The pronunciation is excellent...I’m not sure if if I have posted about Gwenllian....she is worth a thread.

This is a very good video....I like the success of the Men of Gwent......since I live in the area.

I bet Robin Hood learned about the long bow from the Welsh. He may have been Randolph, Earl of Chester, and Chestershire borders on northern Wales. :)

@Virginia @SFA:
And there's a famous cat from Cheshire too. Probably belonged to Randolph. :D :D :D

Hmmm...that looks like an original ALICE illustration done by Sir John Tenniel, a merciless satirist of Abraham Lincoln ... across the pond... until...

Yes, like many others, Tenniel did not see Lincoln's greatness while Lincoln still lived.
