By Benjo Taylor
Welcome to The Quilkin. Benjo Taylor - who is not an historian - presents a series of curious stories from history. Which is challenging. Because he's not an historian.
La Méduse - Part TwoBenjo returns, somewhat seasick, to finish the story of The Medusa. Discretion advised - this part describes some rather gruesome events.Twitter: @thequilkinemail: [email protected]
La Méduse - Part OneAfter a briefish hiatus, Benjo returns to tell a story that shows humanity in a very positive light indeed. Part one of two.Twitter: @thequilkinemail: [email protected]
The Flight of Mathias RustBenjo tells the unlikely story of Mathias Rust, intersected by a brief talk on cheese.
The Gin PalaceIn the first ever - and possibly last ever - episode, Benjo tells the story of the ship with three names.Corrections:The instruction placques were in Turkish rather than Arabic.There may have been more than two ferrets.
