Honour was all important in Ireland in 1300 A.D. Unsurprisingly when a miller, Walter de Capella, insulted the mistress of John Thebaud it sparked a row between the two men. This row escalated and within a few short weeks a vicious and ultimately violent feud broke out. This podcast takes a look at this long forgotten story of two ordinary people from medieval Ireland. Previously untold, this is a dramatic and hair-raising story of medieval honour, violence and justice that will make you feel lucky to be born in the 21st century!
