    Ruined by the voice over .. ugly, pompous, fake

    And why have an american voicing for an english subject? Why have american “expertts” for an english subject .. especially when they talk such crap.

    (oh, and despite his tantrums when asked Russel Crowe does sound Irish)

    50% of this is an advert for the Hollywood movie, where Russel Crowe plays an Irish Robin hood.

  • Cerine

    The Narrator is Canadian. Not American.

    As for the rest, I agree

    A terrific look at medieval history and warfare. But what does this have to do with Robin Hood?

    The ‘English’ longbow?
    Now there’s a fiction if ever I heard one, the longbow was the traditional weapon of the Celts and therefore the Celtic longbow.

    Yet again America decides to re-write, history, myth and lore I was astounded at the ‘connection’ made between the Magna Carta and bill of independence.

      Idiot.

      It was widely used by the english, although it is well known the many of the archers at  Agincourt were welsh

      It is both the English longbow and the Welsh lomgbow, but certainly not the Celtic longbow.
