2º British: Medieval lives - Women

As you really like the previous video, here you have another chapter of the BBC documentary series about "Medieval lives": Damsel (aristocratic women). As usual, it is English spoken, without subtitles (28 minutes).

The Medieval damsel is nowadays seen as a beautiful, but helpless woman, forever in need of a knight in shining armor to rescue her. But... were damsels really such passive females, or are the stories we think we know about them, simply not true? Terry Jones travels around Europe in search for an answer to that question.

In the following days, there will be links for more episodes.
