Longshanks [Mar. 5th, 2019|10:08 am]
Tony Grist


These tiles came out of a building in Rye, are dated to the years 1275-89 and may be intended to represent Edward I (Longshanks) the king misrepresented (along with everyone else) in Mel Gibson's historical farrago Braveheart. They are currently housed in Rye's Ypres Tower Museum.

You mean...he didn't look like Patrick McGoohan?

It's one of my favorite movies although I am not a fan of Mr. Gibson's and never have been...when I worked at SUCOL, we had an ex-Pat Scot and I worked with him. He explained to me all the historical inaccuracies of Braveheart.

Who knows? I don't suppose the painter of the tile knew what the king looked like either.

Braveheart is soooo inaccurate.

Yes, so I was told. Same professor referred to Jamie Fraser (of the Outlander books) as Jamie with the Laughing Thighs....

I don't know the books. I presume Jamie enjoys a measure of success with the ladies.
