Terry Jones will forever be identified as a member of the outrageous British comedy troupe, Monty Python's Flying Circus. He's the man who delivered the magical line "Spam, spam, spam!" In recent years, Jones has become somewhat of an expert in medieval history and authored several books on the subject. But don't think the humorist has abandoned any of his silly sensibilities. Jones says that Python's surreal humor was often best played in a historically accurate setting, as in the films Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Life of Brian. His new History Channel series, Terry Jones' Medieval Lives, tells the true stories behind many of the iconic medieval myths of the past.
