Contribution of a medieval 'fun fact' for bespoke playing cards

Activity: OtherPublic engagement, outreach and knowledge exchange - Other


The audience for the playing cards are students (who are studying for different degrees) living in Royal Holloway university halls. I explain in layman's terms the origin of the 'Jack' card - that it was formerly the 'Knave' card - and include definitions and dates for the Middle English term, 'knave'.
