Back to the future; back to the past

Fans of fictional future history fauxniversaries: this is the day Marty McFly travelled 25 thirty years into the future to visit in Back to the Future, Part 2. But a note in my inbox tells me this week is also the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt.

You would think it would be the Europhobe Brits ("We few, we happy few, we band of ...") who would be commemorating Agincourt.  Instead it is the Musée de l'Armée at the Invalides in Paris that is sending out news of the exhibit it is launching.  'Course they are covering Agincourt AND Marignano (1515), the latter being a French victory, bien sur.

No all-expenses invitation, however. No hoverboard, either, come to think of it.
