A regular podcast telling the story of England with warmth and enthusiasm. The story of the great names and the events that made England the mosaic it is today; the daily lives of the people who made it so. We take a chronological approach, from the end of Roman Britain, all the way through to the present day – when we get there! Along the way we follow the major highways of history, and some of the side roads too – what it was like to live in the Middle Ages, why the difference between Ale and Beer affected people’s lives, how the English language developed and loads more! Plus there’s a handy website – with biographies, maps (must have maps), articles and, well, just bags of stuff.

Engrossing, educational, enjoyable, excellent England

David's passion, humour and quirkiness make this such an enjoyable and informative journey down through the ages. Well done and thank you for a consistently excellent product. Long live the Shed and all that sail in her.

David delivery is very listenable and very educational.
I love what another reviewer has called his 'puerile' sense of humour, its very English so anyone whop doesnt like this side of David's narrative is either stuck up, ignorant or not of British origin.
Keep up the good work David, listening to your podcasts has become my relaxation whilst walking.
