Shire Fact Number Twenty

'The English leader at the Battle of Maldon was Britnoth, a giant of 6 feet 9 inches who was over sixty but still a forceful general'.

From 'Discovering Battlefields Of England' by John Kinross, 1968.

That's your lot for now. Shire Facts will return one day, perhaps, but, in the mean time, Buy Shire.

They look lovely but bit pricey for 32 pages.

I have a nice one I got cheap about the Nightjar, a very enigmatic bird (bit like Selina Scott)
