My daughter the History nerd

Belated happy birthday to bookfanatic; happy birthday (and welcome back!) to waywardchilde.

My daughter, who is studying History at York University, received an Amazon delivery of a book ‘Heresies in the High Middle Ages’. This led to a conversation between us about the Cathars and then about the Hussites. In discussing the Hussites she came up with the concept of a Hussite uprising amongst the Daleks.
