“Canute began by being a Evil King, on the advice of his Courtesians, who informed him (because of a misunderstanding of the rule Britannia) that the King of England was entitled to sit on the sea without getting wet.”1066 And all that is a book which has itself become part of our historyThe authors have asked that “All History, you can remember is in the Book” and, for most of us, they are probably right.But it was their own interpretation of events that made the classic book; a resounding satire to the writing of history textbooks and our confused memories:”The first date in English history is 55 BC, the year in which Julius Caesar (the memorable Roman Emperor) landed, like all the other invaders of these islands, at Thanet.It was in Ancient times, when the Romans were at the head of the nation on account of their classical education, etc., and so on.”
