A Must Read by one of the highest authorities in Medieval Literature 23 July 2012
By M Hildebrandt - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I can't recommend Dr. Scott Lightsey's book enough to everyone from medieval enthusiasths to history buffs, to aspiring writers, as it is a look at part of the medieval world Dr. Lightsey knew about years ago, but is just making it's way into pop culture recently.

Dr. Lightsey, a PHD in Medieval Literature who is asked to speak at Harvard every year brings us into a world that is little known in Medieval Studies. We are brought on a journey to the fringes of Western Europe to the near East, more advanved at the time, and they had a much stronger grasp on Astronomy, had clockworks, things that are now in the pop culture mainstream in games like World of Warcraft, and the film that is coming out. We discover Tombs of "Monstrous Men" by Pliney the Elder. These were the inspiration for the Man Beasts in the film 300.

I eagerly await Scott Lightsey's next book.
