    St. Crispin's Day is 25 October, btw. It will mark the 600th anniversary of Agincourt.

    Fascinating -and entertaining - article. Loved the bits included about the Grace Dieu - 3,700 trees felled for a single voyage, the crew perhaps mutinying because the ship was too big to sail.
    RIP, Cassini. To her tireless overseers- job well done.
