'1066 And All That' - WC Sellar & RJ Yeatman

'1066 And All That' is a comedy classic, highlighting most English people's confusion about their country's past. The authors happily muddle facts, characters and myth to help give a really authentic idea of 'memorable' history.

This satirical book was released in 1991. Authors Jimmy Guterman and Owen O'Donnell asked readers to take the book with a grain of salt, as it targeted music from the popular to the obscure. The quiz is based on their opinions (which may not be mine).
