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.

Wonderful show

A wonderful show that combines careful detail with a good humored, cheerful presentation. If you start at the beginning now, you’ll be ready for the new ones when David has recovered from his illness. And David, I’m so sorry to hear about it! Take care of yourself, and remember your health is more important than a podcast.
