First question, would you like to include a footnote briefly explaining who the Albigensians were?

Also, do you have any pictures that would be suitable for this entry? Possibly of Lewes Castle.

BB, sorry about the delay in replying. We've been in France for a couple of weeks.

I've added a footnote about the Albigensians to A87904010. I don't want to get involved in details because the story is quite complicated!

I can go and get some photos of Lewes castle, but it has, of course, changed over time.

Thanks for the footnote - yes, we only need a brief explanation and not the details of the Albigensian Crusade and Cathars' beliefs as that would be a whole new entry and not directly relevant to this story.

If you would like to, can you have a read through of the subbed version of the entry and let me know if there are any changes you would like made, or if you are happy for it to go to the next step on its journey to the front page?

Incidentally I've just started reading a smiley - book set in this era, 'The Outlaw of Torn' by Edgar Rice Burroughs – but it isn't attempting to be particularly historically accurate.

So, are there any further changes you would like to make, or are you happy to go on its way?

Thanks for the confirmation, I've sent the entry on to the next stagesmiley - ok
I hope you don't mind the photo, true it isn't actually Simon de Montfort but hopefully the barbican of Lewes Castle gives the reader the right mediæval ambience.
