A short announcement

Sorry no podcast this week; next week, a wonderful guest episode on Shakespeare by David McClain, the week after the battle of Poitiers - and that could well be it for the rest of the year. If so, ooops, sorry about that. Anyway, we'll see - and enjoy the guest episode next week. 

The History of England

This is my retelling of the story of England, in a regular, chronological podcast, from the cataclysmic end of Roman Britain, all the way through to the present day. I’m a bloke in a shed, so this is not a dry retelling of events; I make sure this is good, properly prepared history, but I fill it with my love and enthusiasm, and some of the things that make me laugh. 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.
