Subject: MORTIMER/HEREFORD and Magna Charta by Wurts
Date: Fri, 28 Jun 1996 13:49:29 EDT
Concerning a recent request for an opinion on the worth of the MAGNA CHARTA by Wurts, I feel compelled to offer my experience with Wurts.
For quite some time, Wurts' MAGNA CHARTA was all I had to work with. When I was able to utilize other sources and began comparing data, I found Wurts to be quite accurate.
Remember, too, that good researchers do not depend on one source (IS there a perfect source?) but constantly check source against source. If I question any source's information, I use it as a guide (or "hint") to give me an idea of where to look for further verification.
