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.

A welcome addition to the History Podcasting

Good podcast, well paced and well read - looking forward ot the whole series!


If you like The History of Rome then get this podcast! Don’t think about it just go ahead and subscribe. David Crowther is (dare I say it) as good as Mike Duncan (there I’ve said it) and in many ways a bit easier to listen to. I download both podcasts the moment they are released and it’s a toss up as to which one gets listen to first.
The early episodes are a bit slow and confusing but that’s mainly because of the strange names and somewhat speedy coverage (due to lack of historical evidence) but as he moves onto better documented periods David’s coverage improves with each episode.
I VERY rarely bother to review podcasts (lazy) but had to leave this in the hope of encouraging other who NEED to listen to this one!

History of England

An interesting podcast, with some thought-provoking insights. I did notice two errors in the latest episode: William of Normandy was Edward the Confessor's cousin, rather than nephew; Edward's mother Emma was sister to William's father Robert. Error number two: Macbeth became King of Scots in 1040, not 1041.
