    The History of England

    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.
