This my retelling of the story of England, which is a regular, chronological podcast, starting from the end of Roman Britain. I’m a bloke in a shed, but I make sure this is good, properly prepared history, and then fill it with my enthusiasm. You’ll find the great events and people for sure – but also some of the byways, of how people lived, their language, and the forces that shaped their lives and destinies.(Note iTunes only displays a list of 300 episodes. There are rather more, which all other podcatchers DO list).

History of England podcast

I have a long commute to work and I can say, listening to David has made my journeys more bearable. Informative and well presented for the man in his shed. I’ve not long listening but up to episodes 150 and also done Anglo Saxons. Keep it going 👍

5 star quality

I’ve been listening to this podcast for a good while now, really interesting, informative and told with humour but not irreverently
Mr Crowther is definitely a man you could have a few pints and a good chat with. Keep up the good work, sir
