Fantastic

Well researched, balanced, and using a methodical approach to historiography to create an informative, well-presented study into the origins, events, and ramifications of the largest empire in human history.

Excellent start

I am enjoying this very much, particularly as it starts with a part of British history that I am not familiar with.

A good listen

Well researched, well written, and beautifully narrated. I expected nothing less after listening to The History of Witchcraft. Nice to have another good listen to look forward to each week. Thank you Sam!
