Why Vikings Invaded the British Isles

I love Monty Python, even the credits are hysterical.

It is so good to know the source of your Viking knowledge. It explains a lot.

My favorite line, "No one ever expects the Spanish Inquisition." I use it often and when least expected.

My husband thinks I'm crazy for loving Monty Python, but it was one of the most refreshing things on TV in the 1970s. And, Michael Palin makes a fine historian, don't you think?

One of my favorite usable quotes when I want to discount something is: "It's only a model," from "The Holy Grail."
