Whilst sat in Johnny Gurkhas last night with Mrs JD the conversation turned to violence (as it often does!) and the question posed 'was the 20th Century the most violent on record'? I reckoned that it was but Mrs JD seemed to think that the times around the Crusades were, her argument being that when you take the percentage of people killed against the population at the time that it was the most violent. Having Googled this all I can find is a lot of peoples thoughts but no hard facts. So do any of you History buffs have and ideas? PS. Next time we go to Johnnies we're just going to talk about beer!
