Insults!

In this episode of Histories of the Unexpected, James and Sam explore the unexpected history of INSULTS, which is all about duelling, 3500 BCE Babylonia, poison pen letters, and of course gloves! It’s also all about Shakespeare, slander and name-calling in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Devon, and much, much more!
