Medieval Purple Haze

The Medieval Mind. Very classy intro. Made by RKCR/Y&R

"The four-part series, co-produced by The Open University, will explore the mindset and lifestyle of medieval citizens and will reveal what motivated people who lived between 800AD and 1400AD and what beliefs we share with our ancestors."

Alas it is non-streamable if you live outside Blighty. But I'll find a way round that.
There is a medieval quiz on the BBC site. I you do poorly they lob a Chaucer quote at you:

"One ear it heard, at the other out it went."

If you get an acceptable amount of questions correctly you get Abelard:

"The first key to wisdom is defined, of course, as assiduous and frequent questioning"
