Knowing more about history.

Here's a fun and short video introducing you to the truth about 5 misconceptions of history. From Open Culture:

Viking helmets had horns, Napoleon was quite short and Lady Godiva rode through Coventry naked. Most of us accept these tales as facts because they’ve been told for many generations. But C.G.P. Grey took a closer look and compiled this short video in which he debunks not only these historical misconceptions but also two myths surrounding the Roman “Vomitorium” and Columbus.
