The Night of the Long Knives is the name Geoffrey of Monmouth gave to the (possibly apocryphal) treacherous killing of native British chieftains by Anglo-Saxon mercenaries on Salisbury Plain in the 5th century. The event came to be known as Brad y Cyllyll Hirion ("The Treachery of the Long Knives") in Welsh, and became a prominent symbol of Saxon treachery.
All the words in this quiz begin with "long". Adding another word to the end of long will create an entirely new word. I will give the meaning of the new word and you must indicate what word needs to be added.
