St Bart’s

The video below had me scurrying to my shelves to disprove wiki info.

Darn. St Bart’s WAS “founded” by a jester called Rahere. Henry I’s jester. As in Henry I, youngest son of William the Bastard Conqueror.

OG Source RRAN 2 (Regesta regum anglo-normanorum) numbers 1794, 1795, 1943, 1761…and NO…these are NOT dates.

Anyone who has ever watched Ben Cucumberpatch in Sherlock is very familiar with St Bart’s, yes?

But I digress. This is a vid about Smithfield MEAT Market and much, much more.

Can’t make it up :o)
