Little is known about the early days of RiotACT. Indeed, there is no mention of RiotACT before the Doomsday book, suggesting that it was the Normans that introduced RiotACT to the English speaking world in 1066.
Recently archaeological finds turned up some startling evidence to suggest that the Norman link could be fact.
And of course, after a hard day conquering, Normans often enjoyed a cold one.
