And she devotes considerable space to the ingenious deception by which the Norman leader, Bohemond, escaped from Antioch in spreading the story that he had died, he then lay in a coffin with a dead cock which smelled like a corpse and was transported by sea to Rome. They could be extremely elitist and snobbish in using these aspects.
