Attila the Hun...

Watched the interesting mini-film about Attila the Hun last night, if you missed it you can still find on the BBC Iplayer. (Rory McCann as a six foot six Attila) There was a lot of blood and thunder re-enactment but not much in the way of socio-political context other than that he really annoyed the Romans. I would have like to have seen a bit more about the rise of the Hun empire. Whenever I hear the name Attila, I am reminded of the poet Attila the Stockbroker, you can find his work at http://www.attilathestockbroker.com/
