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.

History of England

I look forward to each episode of this wonderful podcast and was so sad to hear of your illness David. Get well soon, for your listeners but more importantly for your family and friends who must hold very dear the intelligent and kind man that you clearly are.

Fantastic

Humorous and informative, this podcast has been in my rotation for years. I’ve learned tons about English history from this entertaining show, and I highly recommend it!

Please recover soon David

This entertaining and informative podcast is the first I look for when it is released. I am devastated to hear that David is ill, and along with all of his fans, I wish him every good wish for a speedy recovery. He has a special talent for comedic and self deprecating humor which only makes me grateful that he pursued history and not stand up as a profession.
David, you are a gem! Please take care. We need you.
