English Heritage - whatever one may think of it (one tries not to think of it at all) - has shot up in Astragal's estimation.

Its website is promoting the world's biggest-ever Battle of Hastings re-enactment, and what's really great is the online footage of last year's event. If you like to snigger at men with big beards and ponytails running around a field with stupid helmets on, then check it out - it's a guaranteed laugh.

And people think English Heritage is stuffy. . .
