A regular podcast telling the story of England with warmth and wit 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 cataclysmic 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.

Yummy!

Came for The Tudors, have now become obsessed with The Crusades and all that. Guaranteed one quotable turn of phrase in each episode at minimum.

Delightful

Well done history, and presented in a light (and very British) manner that is entertaining. Highly recommended.
