The History of England

Please note that because iTunes limits the number of episodes displayed to 300, to start at the beginning of my retelling of the story of England, you need to SUBSCRIBE. You'll then find a regular, chronological podcast, starting from from the end of Roman Britain. I?m a bloke in a shed, but I make sure this is good, properly prepared history, and then fill it with my enthusiasm. 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.
