Archives: Accepted Wisdom is Wrong

An editor at The Guardian sent some fellows over to the National Archives to poke around in some old files (recently declassified). Their findings: the intransigence which caused the hostilities in the Falklands in 1982, and the subsequent deaths of hundreds, was Argentinian, not British. This is rather contrary to common wisdom about the Iron Lady and all that.

Archives can do that.
