This was so interesting! I have been doing research on my family who came with William the Conqueror and Alexander's present was phenomenal!
Loved this!! Alexander Wilson is 1) funny; 2) engaging; 3) extraordinarily knowledgeable. He covers a wealth of material in minutes and keeps it moving, but is wise enough to keep slides on the screen for a few minutes, so we can visually study them while listening to him explain the map or portrait, etc. This is a huge change from so many tedious seminars I attend professionally, in which the speaker reads the slides to us....ZZZ. Prof. Wilson used a variety of graphics, from a map of DDay to the Bayeaux Tapestry that absolutely illuminated his points. I learned a huge amount in a very short amount of time.
Such an informative lecture providing details about a period I knew little about. Will definitely take further lectures from Mr. Wilson.
Mr. Wilson was knowledgeable, thoughtful, covering the topic thoroughly with nice animated asides.
