A medieval history essential listen

All you will need to whet your interest in the Crusades to regain the Holy Land. Plenty of detail, useful asides, concise episodes, good pacing. You will enjoyment listening to stories so well read and organised. Sharon’s tempo is slower and very pleasant listening. Further series on Moorish Spain, other Crusades follow and are just as captivating.

Fascinating and enjoyable

Thanks Sharyn for a wonderful podcast! I highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in the period; good pacing, informative, well researched and, at times, amusing.
