What's better than a fact? A fact disproving common but inaccurate "knowledge". You might need to enlarge that image to benefit from it.  One of my favorite: Vikings' didn't wear horned helms...they were created in the 19th century by a costume designer for a Wagner opera.

< Yes, that's precisely why they're wrong!
