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.

A delight! ❤️

David is a delight to listen to! His enthusiasm and knowledge make me excited to listen to every episode. My only fear is that my friends might start getting annoyed that I keep pestering them to listen! Thank you so much David!

Excellent

Terrific podcast. Very detailed and comprehensive to provide a strong sense of how things happened and why actors made the decisions they did, including the deeper trends at play. David is very amiable and dynamic as the storyteller, with enjoyable interjections to lighten the listener's mood. I highly recommend.
