Normans BBC series available on BBC iPlayer: Another one from Robert Bartlett

As a follow-up to yesterday’s post about Inside the Medieval Mind, I should also mention that there’s a major BBC series running at the moment about the Normans in England. Again it is written and narrated by Professor Robert Bartlett. I haven’t seen any of them yet, but I am sure it is worth seeing.

Here’s a clip from YouTube about the Battle of Hastings in 1066:

Inside the Medieval Mind: Great BBC Series

I caught the third episode of the BBC series Inside the Medieval Mind, presented and written by Professor Robert Bartlett. The episode I watched was on Belief. I thought Bartlett did a great job of not just recounting religious beliefs, but instead delved into beliefs around life and death and how the two were linked together. The series is actually a couple of years old I think, but I managed to catch an on demand episode last night via Virgin Media. It seems to be possible to watch the whole series online at OVGuide, but I haven’t tried it yet.
