CGP Grey takes a look at what ‘everyone knows about history’ and is wrong. He starts with Vikings and includes my favourite fact about Napoleon

There’s some overlap between this and the fun book One in the Eye for Harold: Why everything you thought you knew about history is wrong. That book is well worth a look if you like this sort of thing.
