History reports in detail about who killed whom and when, at least as long as they were Important Figures. But quite often it forgets to tell us how people like you and me lived, loved, ate, worked, swore and died over the centuries, thus leaving us with the disturbing feeling that a handful of bullies have ever been more important than the millions that fed them and sheepishly obeyed them. Sure there are books (if not really many) that remedy this lack, but a picture is worth a thousand words – and costs much less 🙂
