    History in the general sense has in recent years been shown to be less than 'definitive' in many cases. We hear or read it often - 'what's the best book for..........? Many of those have been consigned to the bin as records have been released or discovered to show a different picture. Some will not accept or find it difficult to accept change (myself included) to a lifetimes belief, especially when it shows a much loved institution to be less than truthful or perfect. Professor Toye found information and published it - had he not would it stop future researches finding the very same?
