I love it too! When we were growing up my sister and I did our own full-length play (75 pages long) which we wrote ourselves and played all the characters. That was a challenge! :lol:

how cool !!!!! pity we can't do that for LV. My sister used to read to me aloud and she read the whole book to me, with different voices for all the characters. I always rooted for Bois-Guibert, somehow he could have become a better man given the chance. A tragic character.

Hello Sonia,
5, 20, 26, 38, 57, 61, 63 & 69 are the sections that I wish to claim for this book....if available of course.
apart from 61 which was claimed by Jim right before you, all the others are available and now reserved for you April. Thank you so much for being again in this project. :thumbs:

Sonia
Sonia,
Thank you for reserving most of the sections for me that I claimed. Only the 1 didn't turn out to be mine which is okay with me. :D I will most happily take part in this one as it wouldn't feel right to me not to as I have read sections in all of the prior History of the World books.
April

did you see that Jim relinquished his claim for 61 to you a few posts later ? So I assigned you this section as well. You got all your choices now. :)

Section 11 - The Converted Britons (time 2:15)

https://librivox.org/uploads/kitty/worldstory_volume09_11_tappan_128kb.mp3

This painting is in the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford. It looks much better in colour. Like a lot of Pre-Raphaelite paintings it uses very vivid colours.

First to claim and first to upload :mrgreen:
and first to be PL ok. :thumbs: thank you Alan, your Cymbeline is excellently portrayed. Also thanks for the painting description which is perfectly narrated as well.

thanks for the link ! Indeed the colours are startling and one can see the details better. I often check up on the paintings in this series. I could (and often did) spend afternoons in art galleries :9:

Hearing the very short title "Section 11 of England" feels extremely strange now after all the lengthy titles that we had so far in the series. :lol:
