It has been established that as many as 75% of all fatal accidents between 1558 and 1560 occurred during the summer months between April - September.
 
These interesting facts were discovered by Dr Steven Gunn at Oxford University during research into 9,000.00 sixteenth century coroners reports.  Dr Gunn said that " Deaths happened in various and unexpected ways - some were straightforward accidents with scythes or cart crashes, but other unfortunate people are recorded as mangling themselves in the machinery of windmills or water mills, turning carts on top of themselves when loading them with barley, falling out of trees when gathering fruit and nuts and even falling asleep by piles of hay that collapsed and suffocated them."
 
So, what would you prefer?  2012 with our potholes and cracks in the pavement or 1558 with falling out of trees or being suffocated by a bale of hay?
