300 episodes

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.

This is my favorite

I have been listening to a lot of podcasts during my travel for work. This is clearly my favorite. David does an excellent job of giving the listener a picture of the times.

I’m hooked!

I have learnt so much about Anglo Saxon and Medieval history which I always avoided for some reason, more of a Tudor geek really or so I thought. Thanks David for opening my eyes to some new periods of history with your usual witticisms. I binged through episodes 1-200 in about 3 weeks while I’ve been doing some serious faff in the garden. Like I said, hooked!
