Anglo-Saxon Dangerous Dead Burial In Nottinghamshire

In the Middle Ages, the rise of many beliefs creeping out of ancient folklore surfaced. One of them is the vampire, alongside witches that were common and werewolves. In modern times, when digging in the ‘old country,’ one might find rather strange burials.

The Middle Ages Fortune-Tellers

Back in Medieval Times, people didn’t have meteorologists to explain Mother Nature’s behaviour. They didn’t have the luxury of biologists telling them not to drink stagnant water. Instead, people had other ways to explain diseases and poor crops.

People of the Middle Ages often tried to find someone to blame, and it would come from dark places. With the Church spreading its wings across Europe, witchery was the popular belief.

An Evil King In A Most Unforgiving Time

In the Dark Ages, technology and discoveries were stagnant. Yet, to this day, creative minds dive into history to grab a piece of its history. While some things stood still, the battle for kingdoms had begun. Reign of Mad Kings roared over lands, and Æthelred II was one of them.

Dark Ages Fun Fact & Warning

A Dark Ages fun fact: people had no surnames or family names. In fact, they had either sobriquets or a nickname to separate them from others wearing the same first name. For that reason, many last names today carry words that once meant something different.

I should warn you that this article is about Æthelred II, ‘the Unready’ from later in history and not based on the fantastic character from the television series, The Last Kingdom. Those are two different Æthelred II. While native from the same kingdom apart in time.

The Man in the Walls of Buckingham Palace

We all have heard of stalkers, but how far back can we go? This time we are in the Victorian Era under a matriarch ruling of a famous queen.

The Badass English Queen

I’m sure everyone knows who Queen Victoria was. I mean, it isn’t called the Victorian Era for nothing. She was a badass who used herself as bait to catch an assassin, drank cocaine-wine, and practically invented the sext.

So, one could she deserved a nemesis with the same larger-than-life stature. Edward Jones went above and beyond typical stalker levels, not just following her around and watching her from the shadows. No, he literally lived inside the walls of Buckingham Palace!
