Easter time, holidays everywhere, just a short gift for you fans of history and medieval issues. Let´s get back in time with this folk cover of "Another brick in the Wall" made by Belarusian medieval folk band Stary Olsa. Good work, guys, it makes us search for the next medieval festival around.

 

We´re aware of these former dates and how many of you are changing iron for laser, and Crusades for Star Wars. Without any devaluation of “Star wars” (from me to you, there are many Jedis hidden around), we leave you the Swedish movie “Arn, the Templar Knight”, that we recommend to have a look at since it is a prominent review of the same-name novel, part of the Crusades Trilogy by Jan Guillou, on Templar Knights, their myth and reality.

 

Sometimes we wonder if we deeply know our history, the one that made us reach the times we live now, the fact is that workdays are so busy that we don´t have time enough to stop and dive down in our past. At “Espadas de Toledo”  we´ll discover interesting scraps of our history, unknown episodes and we´ll get closer to those ones to look back at our past so we can build a better world.

Today we are talking about the, probably, ten most famous swords in history.  We’re pleased to receive your suggestions for adding new candidates to this top ten list, but now we are making a first approach to Carlomagno, Napoleon, El Cid, William Wallace and the samurai Tomoyuki Yanashita.
