Oliver of Malmesbury

Oliver Of Malmesbury, a Benedictine monk of the 11th century, is chiefly memorable as the first Englishman who attempted to travel through the aerial regions. He is said to have been well skilled in mechanics; but in attempting to fly from a lofty tower, with wings of his own construction fastened to his hands and feet, he fell and broke both his legs.
