An entry for #bitsyjam February 2019 on the theme of "snails". Use the arrow keys to navigate.

People often wonder why, in the margins of medieval manuscripts, you see so many pictures of knights fighting snails? Well, now it is time for the truth to be revealed - remnants of a forgotten, terrifying history that could have altered the world as we know it today!

1. There is an excellent series of medieval historical mysteries by Ellis Peters about a monk named Cadfael. It is a very laboured pun.

2. Yes, his name translates literally into French as Sir Horse

What a great title, and such a sense of urgency. Brilliant. Pallet was spot-on too.

Well this was a treat!
Everything was so much more dramatic as I was listening to A Minute To Breathe by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
The sense of urgency was almost too real.
hahaha.
Really liked the idea and the history behind it.
Cheers!
