The story of the Vikings on these islands is a familiar one: rape; pillage; desecration; extortion; and general mistreatment of the poor Saxons. But new archaeological evidence, in the form of a mass Viking grave uncovered near Weymouth, suggests that the bad behaviour was not entirely one way.

Aimed at someone else, a finely honed insult is one of life's undoubted pleasures. Even its victim can, in time, value such pungency.

My son of eight is doing badly at school. I know he's clever, but he just can't be bothered. He's so lazy. I have told him he won't get a birthday party this year unless he tries harder, and his stepfather sometimes gets really angry when he sees his marks. His teachers are getting fed up, too. His own father says we should be more encouraging, but there's no point. He can do the work, it's just that he won't. Is there anything we can do?
Yours sincerely, Pippa
