Terry Jones' Medieval Lives
- 1 Season
Former Monty Python star Terry Jones returns to his roots as a historian in this Emmy award nominated series about some of the best known people of the Medieval period in the UK. Jones looks to separate the myths that have grown up around some of the best known figures and groups of the time and find the real truth about what life was really like for Medieval people. Amongst his amazing facts are the revelations that Richard the Lionheart may not have been as good a king as viewers expect, and peasants were allowed to live in a better way than expected.
