Temper Tantrums: Homeschooling Henry II and the murder of Thomas Beckett

An episode we can all identify with! It’s about the history of being able to control your temper – it’s about feet kicking, shouting, waving, stamping, WILD anger. James and Sam explore the various ways you can think about the history of anger before looking in particular at the rage of Henry II and how it impacted on his relationship with Thomas Beckett – once his close friend but who came to be murdered by knights in Canterbury Cathedral in 1170.
