219 – The Halloween Special: The Statement of Randolph Carter
Oct 21 2016 18 mins  
I repeat to you, gentlemen, that your inquisition is fruitless. Detain me here forever if you will; confine or execute me if you must have a victim to propitiate the illusion you call justice; but I can say no more than I have said already. Everything that I can remember, I have told with perfect candour. Nothing has been distorted or concealed, and if anything remains vague, it is only because of the dark cloud which has come over my mind—that cloud and the nebulous nature of the horrors which brought it upon me. Again I say, I do not know what has become of Harley Warren; though I think—almost hope—that he is in peaceful oblivion, if there be anywhere so blessed a thing. It is true that I have for five years been his closest friend, and a partial sharer of his terrible researches into the unknown. I will not deny, though my memory is uncertain and indistinct, that this witness of yours may have seen us together as he says, on the Gainesville pike, walking toward Big Cypress Swamp, at half past eleven on that awful night. That we bore electric lanterns, spades, and a curious coil of wire with attached instruments, I will even affirm; for these things all played a part in the single hideous scene which remains burned into my shaken recollection. But of what followed, and of the reason I was found alone and dazed on the edge of the swamp next morning, I must insist that I know nothing save what I have told you over and over again. You say to me that there is nothing in the swamp or near it which could form the setting of that frightful episode. I reply that I know nothing beyond what I saw. Vision or nightmare it may have been—vision or nightmare I fervently hope it was—yet it is all that my mind retains of what took place in those shocking hours after we left the sight of men. And why Harley Warren did not return, he or his shade—or some nameless thing I cannot describe—alone can tell. As I have said before, the weird studies of Harley Warren were well known to me, and to some extent shared by me. Of his vast collection of strange, rare books on forbidden subjects I have read all that are written in the languages of which I am master; but these are few as compared with those in languages I cannot understand. Most, I believe, are in Arabic; and the fiend-inspired book which brought on the end—the book which he carried in his pocket out of the world—was written in characters whose like I never saw elsewhere. Warren would never tell me just what was in that book. As to the nature of our studies—must I say again that I no longer retain full comprehension? It seems to me rather merciful that I do not, for they were terrible studies, which I pursued more through reluctant fascination than through actual inclination. Warren always dominated me, and sometimes I feared him. I remember how I shuddered at his facial expression on the night before the awful happening, when he talked so incessantly of his theory, why certain corpses never decay, but rest firm and fat in their tombs for a thousand years. But I do not fear him now, for I suspect that he has known horrors beyond my ken. Now I fear for him. Once more I say that I have no clear idea of our object on that night. Certainly, it had much to do with something in the book which Warren carried with him—that ancient book in undecipherable characters which had come to him from India a month before—but I swear I do not know what it was that we expected to find. Your witness says he saw us at half past eleven on the Gainesville pike, headed for Big Cypress Swamp. This is probably true, but I have no distinct memory of it. The picture seared into my soul is of one scene only, and the hour must have been long after midnight; for a waning crescent moon was high in the vaporous heavens. The place was an ancient cemetery; so ancient that I trembled at the manifold signs of immemorial years. It was in a deep, damp hollow,

198 – The Great Heathen Army Begins
Apr 03 2016 23 mins  
On 864 or 865, a great Scandinavian fleet of Dragon ships, or Drakkars, beached themselves at Thanet in Kent. For the people of the south, this would have been terrifying It had been scarcely more than a decade since the last fleet of Drakkars landed in Thanet, and the army exploded forth from those ships went on to raid Canterbury, London, and may have taken Winchester had they not been stopped by King AEthelwulf and AEthelbald. And here they were again… but now King AEthelwulf was dead, as was his son, AEthelbald… all of the South was in threat. Where would the Vikings go this time? Would they strike Canterbury again? Loot the treasure chest of the south, London? Unless something was done, everyone was vulnerable. The nobility, likely under King AEthelberht’s leadership, tried to head off the disasterand sent emissaries to the Vikingr army. These emissaries promised vast sums of money in exchange for peace. This tribute would become known as the Danegeld… the Dane Payment. [s2If !current_user_can(access_s2member_level1)] Click here to be able to read the full rough transcript. [/s2If] [s2If current_user_can(access_s2member_level1)] It was exactly what it sounds like. A bribe for peace. The hope being that, if they could just give the opportunistic raiders what they were after, material wealth, then they might stay in their camp…why risk your life if you can get paid for sitting on the beach? But there were two problems with the Danegeld. The first problem was one of simple economics. The south was no stranger to troubles, they had suffered numerous raids over the years, sometimes winning, sometimes losing. But even victorious battles have a cost and these raids were straining the Southern economy. In fact, shortly after the last great fleet landed in Thanet in 851, coin production halted entirely … and then suddenly AEthelstan, the crown prince and previous ruler of Kent, vanished. We don’t know what exactly happened, but the interruption and sudden disappearance of the crown prince is suspect. While the Chronicler’s are quick to laud the royal family’s military success at places like Aclea (which was described as the greatest slaughter of a heathen army ever seen) and the naval successes in battles like Sandwich, this sudden quiet in the record suggest there were significant troubles underlying the story… and Wessex (and it’s subkingdom of Kent) was getting stretched thin. Wessex may have been outmatched by their Scandinavian enemies. We see evidence of a weakening kingdom through distribution of coins in the south. In the last 18 months of King AEthelwulf’s reign (if you’ll remember he was the King who had defeated the prior great fleet, and was also Alfred the Great’s father)… Well, suddenly West Saxon coinage began to be revived under his rule… and that increased production continued. By the time we reach the 860s, when this second great fleet landed, coin minting had expanded even farther. At the same time, we see Wessex’s northern neighbor, Mercia, go through a similar expansion of money production. Mercia at this point was being ruled by King Burgred and Queen AEthelswith (Alfred’s sister). So the take away here is that, shortly before this great fleet arrived, we’ve seen the two major kingdoms of the south, linked by marriage, expand their production of coins. Noticeably. Why? The answer is complex. It would be easy to think the wealth of the upper classes in the South was simply growing… and there’s good reason to wonder. While these raids were a catastrophic event for any locals who were caught up in them… the upper classes were quick to find ways to exploit the situation to expand their own wealth and standing. Lands were being acquired, wealth was being consolidated. It’s the same old story,

194 – My Big Fat Dark Age Wedding
Feb 27 2016 36 mins  
King AEthelbald of Wessex, Queen Judith, Bjorn Ironsides, Prince Alfred, King Charles the Bald, Pope Nicholas I, Baldwin Iron Arm, Ivar the Boneless… this episode has it all! (History of Britain, History of England, History of Wessex, French History, Vikings, Roman History) NOTE ON RESEARCH I get a lot of questions about this episode asking for more detail on where it comes from and where to find more information. Answering that question is a bit difficult because it came from all over the place. I think I first heard of it from either Stenton or Justin Pollard. Regardless, as I recall (now well over a year after the fact) it was Pollard who had the most concise version I’d seen and that was who got me to start digging. Being that I knew he is a pop historian, I turned to more solid academic sources in order to verify the account. As I recall I looked to Abels and (maybe) DP Kirby for support. Also, I think I might have turned to Barbara Yorke on that one too. I turn to her on a lot of things. As I was digging, though, I ran into a pretty big barrier. Not all sources are translated into English, and not all translated sources are publicly released. That leaves me somewhat hamstrung on esoteric stories (and this one is esoteric as hell). Now Pollard’s description matched with the documents I could get my hands on, and it also matched with the academic articles I was able to access. Moreover, those articles also included additional details, like Iron Arm’s likely aggressive posture throughout the whole situation. But because some of the items referenced materials that were in France and didn’t appear to have an English translation available online or in libraries, there were portions I just had to take on faith and trust Pollard and other academic articles had better access to sources than I did. So unfortunately, one of my favorite episodes from a storytelling perspective, is also one of my least favorite on the research level because I had to trust secondary sources far more than I’m accustomed with. Furthermore, because I was unable to find any other succinct compilations of this story written in English, I don’t have any books I can recommend you turn to for more information. This episode was literally everything I could find on her. JSTOR can be a good resource, and if you have access to a good academic library you can do some research. But I fear that you’ll find, just as I did, that you can see glimpses of her in articles (articles that are often focusing on something else) but she’s a rather murky figure and there really isn’t much of anything directly focusing on her. But I thought that it’s important that you know this before listening to the episode on Judith because it’s important to know where information comes from. Here we are in 858 and everything has changed in Wessex. King AEthelbald has ascended to the throne and has married his father’s widow in an attempt to solidify his hold on power, and also avoid the awkwardness that could have come from Judith contesting him for the throne, which was a very real possibility. She was a consecrated queen, after all, and she witnessed charters as “regina” and of course she was the great grand-daughter of Charlemagne. If you were AEthelbald, you’d likely be thinking it was best to just nip that in the bud. Support the Show

167 – The Beginning of the End
Jun 23 2015 40 mins  
Season Four is called Anglo Saxon Ascendancy because we have been seeing mighty kings like Offa, AEthelbald, and Coenwulf acquire vast amounts of power in Britain that enable them to nearly become the first kings of England. Their hegemonies were so big and impressive that we have one Mercian leader getting into arguments with Charlemagne and another claim the title of Emperor. But we are reaching the end of that era. The Viking armies are coming…. and the great Kingdoms of Northumbria and Mercia, which could have functioned as bulwarks against continental aggression 100 years earlier… are collapsing under their own weight. The line of Ida in Northumbria had largely died out about 100 years ago. The Idingas were fierce and effective leaders… but they also tended to die young, and sometimes without children. And now with their end, the warnings of Bede regarding the weaknesses of the Northern Kingdom are starting to look like prophecy. For the last century, Northumbria has been wracked by civil war, with 5 families enthusiastically murdering each other in their attempt to claim the throne. There are too many kings of Northumbria to count who met an untimely death, many times without kids… And it might lead you to wonder whether the kingdom have been strong enough to stop the Norse invasion if King AEthelred I of Northumbria hadn’t been murdered. Or if any of the other kings and claimants hadn’t been murdered. Support the Show

Chapter Four: Anglo Saxon Ascendancy
Jul 07 2014 6 mins  
It began with Cassivellaunus. The first recorded King to have commanded the submission of most, if not all, of the British tribes and who fought valiantly against Caesar and his legions. And although the hegemony under Cassivellaunus didn’t last, it presented a tantalizing new possibility. Unity. A century later, the Romans returned… and this time they stayed…. and for nearly 4 centuries, England, Wales, and parts of Scotland all experienced rule under a single government. The concept of Britannia, as a single unified province, which was alien in those early days, was now part of the collective consciousness. So much so that, even after Rome withdrew, we are told of how the Britons organized for a time under a single ruler… Vortigern. And according to legend, it was his rule that brought two Anglo Saxon brothers, Hengest and Horsa, to our shores to fight for the Britons. And they did as they were asked. For a time. But as is the way with mercenaries, once you stop paying… Conflicts can arise. We’re told that the brothers turned on their employers, and ravaged much of southern Britain. And it was at this point that the Britons discovered that they were not as weak as they had believed they were. They fought back. Wars raged, and at Badon Hill, the Britons at last found their victory. The Anglo Saxons were defeated. But the way had been opened, and climate change combined with tremendous amounts of unrest on the continent, lead to a continual stream of migrants coming to britain. And life for the migrants was hard, in those early days. Their health was poor and their settlements were meager, with many living in barely more than a pit in the ground. But they persisted. And they farmed. And in time, they began to organize. They acquired surpluses, and that lead to the development of hierarchies and classes. Some of the local Britons integrated with the Anglo Saxons, others spurned them, but regardless it couldn’t be denied that their settlements were quickly growing in both prosperity and size. And it wasn’t long before conflicts between the Anglo Saxons and the Britons once again sparked up, and this time, the Anglo Saxons fared much better. They expanded their holdings, brought villages under their control, and captured slaves. They were forming Kingdoms. The Anglo Saxon era was dawning. And with it, came a new culture. One that didn’t fully reflect the communities of the Anglo Saxon homelands, nor did it reflect British culture… but rather, it was wholly unique, with some aspects taken from one side, some from the other, and some appear to have been developed entirely on their own. And so we began to see the growth of something that you could only describe as an early form of Englishness. After generations of struggle, the people of the East were forming their own unique identity. And with it came the possibility of unity… and that brought the return of the Bretwaldas… the Britain Rulers. Men who had the ambition, and quite possibly the ability, to rule not just one Kingdom… but many… maybe even all of England. That seed that had been planted in the days of Cassivellaunus and Suetonius was now bearing fruit. Raedwald, Edwin, AEthelfrith, Oswald, Penda, Oswiu… all of these men were on the cusp of attaining what Britain had not seen since the days of Vortigern. A unified territory. And as luck would have it, strength and ambition was gathering amongst Anglo saxon nobility at roughly the same time as the arrival a new religion. One that gave them yet another a reason to make war upon their neighbors. Christianity. And so wars sparked up, and Christ was pitted directly against Nordic gods like thunor and Woden, but ultimately the real fight was simply dynasties versus dynasties. In the end, religious writers will tell us that the old gods were defeated, and christianity was triumphant.

94 – Dark Age Beliefs
Jul 29 2013 71 mins  
As we go forward in this series, what I hope you’re beginning to get a sense of from both the WelshCast and all the other shows focusing on the so called Dark Ages, is how fragmented life in Britain was at this point in history. We simply are not dealing with homogenous populations over the whole of britain, or even the whole of Wales. In today’s culture, we have a surprising amount of commonality thanks to the influences of media, travel and national political bodies. But even today, you’ll find distinct cultural differences in different parts of Wales, and definitely in different parts of the UK. Well, part of what I’ve been trying to show you as we’ve been going through this stuff is that the cultural differences would have been even greater back then. There were different cultural groups, ethnic groups, kingdoms… you name it. Britain wasn’t Britain. It was just an island with a big patchwork of different communities. And that becomes quite an issue for us when we try to look at religion, since our records are generally rather sparse. And that scarcity only serves to heighten the difficulties we have with the diversity of cultures we’re seeing in Britain. For example, even if we had detailed texts on religious practices in Dyfed, it still wouldn’t necessarily tell us much of anything regarding the remainder of britain. Not even if we’re looking at members of the same religion. As we go forward we’ll find that Christians in one area won’t necessarily practice the same as Christians in another. And when we add paganism into the mix, it really gets complicated. Support the Show

93 – Chapter Three: The Warriors of God
Jul 22 2013 1 mins  
It has been nearly two hundred years since Rome withdrew from Britannia setting this small island at the edge of the world on a course that could not have been predicted. Over the generations, a new culture has developed in the lands that will one day become England, and with that new culture came new gods. Gods with famous names like Thunor and Woden. Gods of war and death, to match the warrior society that now ruled over eastern Britannia. But while the Anglo Saxons were finding a new path in this Brave New World… far to the East, in Rome, things were changing as well. Christianity had survived the fall of the Western Empire and has flourished thanks, in no small part, to an ingenious religious innovation… the concept of one true god, and an utter lack of tolerance for variations in dogma. And now, after two centuries of separation, Rome will once more reach out and attempt to bring Britannia back under its dominion. A ship will soon set sail, carrying within it a man who’s sole task is to bring the Anglo Saxons under the control of the church. But will the pagans listen? And what will they think of a god who is proclaimed as the prince of peace? And if they convert, how will they interpret the absolute demand for religious unity? We have seen these people become increasingly more warlike… and one thing is certain with this new religion will come new reasons for bloodshed… as we enter BHP, Season Three… The Warriors of God.

53 – Producing the BHP Full Time, a Proposal
Aug 22 2012 2 mins  
Ok, so right now I’m in a situation where I might need to make some hard choices on where my time goes. The thing is that this has been one of the best experiences of my life, but for financial reasons I might need to go back to law full time. The problem there being that law is one of those jobs that doesn’t leave room for much else. Obviously, I would prefer to continue telling you stories. I think I have a knack for it, and I feel like discussing our shared history is important. And there’s a bunch of fun stuff that I have been working on and would love to do. Such as getting more interviews with experts, new side stories (similar to what I’ve been doing with St. Patrick) and I’ve even been looking into putting together tours. But for me to give this project the attention it deserves I need to do it full time, rather than as a hobby I squeeze in between cases. So I thought I’d apply for the job of entertaining you. By my math, I need 150 new members in order to be able to afford to do this full time. After all, I’m not looking to get rich. I just want to be able to dedicate all my time to doing this podcast. So if you like what I’m doing here, and you’d like me to do this full time, please consider becoming a member over at For around the price of a latte each month my day job could be telling you stories, hunting down new things to share with you, and bringing you interviews with experts on the material we have all come to know. To pique your interest, I’ve got several incentives that I have listed over on the website which include a future series analyzing the tale of King Arthur, a special on Stonehenge, and even a trip to the UK with get togethers and perhaps even a group outing to the British Museum or something along those lines. The truth of it is that I love this project. And I would really like to work for you full time. So I hope you’ll consider hiring me. Besides, does the world really need another lawyer?

52 – DRUIDS! (Bonus Episode)
Aug 17 2012 23 mins  
Today we’re going to talk about Druids, who they were, and where our information comes from. [s2If !current_user_can(access_s2member_level1)] Click here to be able to read the full rough transcript. [/s2If] [s2If current_user_can(access_s2member_level1)] Ok, lets talk about Druids. And no, I’m not talking about the people who gather at Stonehenge every solstice in robes blowing a rams horn. While that all looks very fun, those people aren’t following the ancient druidic religion. First, because Stonehenge was built before the rise of celtic culture and before the emergence of druidism. And second, because druidism is dead. Modern druidism is no more ancient than modern wiccanism. And while I’m irritating people, I might as well go the full nine. St. Patrick wasn’t Irish. Yup, it’s true. He wasn’t Irish. Oh and I’m not done yet! There’s a good chance that the short kilt, also known as the Walking Kilt, was invented in the 1700’s by an English industrialist named Thomas Rawlinson who tried to make the plaid kilt more practical. Of course, some dispute this. Which should surprise no one, since Kilts are so fashionably scottish. But Hugh Trevor-Roper amusingly commented that the kilts and tartans are as authentic as disneyland. And that has a great deal of merit. While there might be some argument over whether Rawlinson invented the short Kilt or merely recognized its utility and mandated its widespread use in his workplaces,the modern short kilt was likely an 18th century invention, and certainly no older than the 17th century. And while tartans have existed in europe and asia for over 3000 years, many of the Clan tartans that we know today were likely invented in the lowlands for profit. Oh, and what about Bagpipes? We all love bagpipes, and they’re as scottish as… uh… a very scottish thing. Right? Well, bagpipes were invented in the middle east. And chances are that if it wasn’t for the British Army and the enthusiasm of Queen Victoria, they probably wouldn’t be nearly as popular as they are. But look. I’m not saying that bagpipes, tartans, and short kilts are bad. If you want to wear a short kilt, more power to you. I’m just saying that it’s only marginally older than the utili-kilt. ;) Ok, now that I’ve alienated everyone. Back to the Druids. Lets start with the name. Druid. There are many discussions on what the name meant, how it might have been originally pronounced, how it was morphed over the years through translations, and whether it was a celtic word or a word applied to the celts by historians from the Mediterranean. Like much with this period, everyone has a theory it seems. That’s largely because most of what we know is derived from Posedonios, a 2nd century BC Greek writer. And unfortunately, we don’t have all of his writings. Some were lost. But we’ve been able to piece together some of what’s missing through references made in the work of others. Much of that, by the way, is thanks to the Alexandrian school which, rather than relying on first hand experience like many of their contemporaries, gathered and cited sources in an attempt to synthesize history. Many of the lost texts of history are known thanks to the Alexandrian school. Anyway, so thanks to, primarily, secondary sources, we’re able to get a picture of what the druids were like, but that picture is cloudy and heavily subject to interpretation. Anyway, back to the word druid and what it might have meant. A rather plausible etymological explanation for the word is that it is a combination of the root “Drus” which meant Oak and “Wyd” which translated to knowledge. Oak knowledge? That might seem strange until you look at how important trees were. There are plenty of references to the sacred oak groves of the druids and whatnot,

14 – The Mystery of the Ninth Legion
Aug 08 2011 43 mins  
Ok, I’ll be the first to admit this one is a little confusing. After all, the whole mystery is more than a little confusing. So here is a list of the bits of evidence we’re talking about. * The Ninth was nearly destroyed in a night assault by the Caledonians during Agricola’s northern campaign. * The last known battle the Ninth was in was Mons Graupius. * 108 AD, The Ninth built a gate at Eboracum (York). * Post 117 AD (probably 119 to 121) there was a major rebellion in Britannia. * 80’s AD or 121 AD, there were tiles at Nijmegen (Holland) stamped by the Ninth. * Tiles similar to those were also found at Carlisle. * A tombstone at Ferentinum references an emergency in Britannia that required 3,000 reinforcements. * 122 AD, Hadrian traveled to Britannia to “correct many faults” and he brought with him the Sixth Legion. * The Sixth legion took the post of Eboracum, which was the Ninth’s post. No mention is made of where the Ninth went. * 142 AD, Governor Carus, who served with the Ninth, became the Governor of Arabia. * Frontinus writes to Emperor Aurelius reminding him how his grandfather (Hadrian) suffered a major loss of troops to the Jews and the Britons. * 162 AD, the Aurelian columns don’t list the Ninth or Twenty Second legions. * The Twenty Second probably served in the Jewish wars and the Ninth was stationed in Britannia. That should just about cover it. Oh, and The Eagle is not a good film. (History of Britain, History of England, History of Wales, History of Scotland, Celtic History, Roman History) Support the Show

Far too much unnecessary commentary and to little history.

Although I prefer the history of England with David crowther, I thought I would give this podcast a chance. But at the start of this podcast in discussing the problems in Portland, I'm informed that the real problem there is right-wing militias not Antifa or BLM who've been burning businesses in the city and rioting for a hundred plus straight nights. No mention that it was an antifa guy who shot down an unarmed conservative. If I want the leftist version I can get that on any media at night.

Very good podcast with an extraordinary level of detail, but too much speculation on occasion.

BillinhoBamford Sep 25 2020
An excellent history podcast. Well researched and presented. I've been listening for years and continue to enjoy each episode.

EricLrx Sep 21 2020
I can put up with the religious and political swipes that crop up every now and then, but the latest rant was so biased to the point it makes me wonder if Jamie is an active Antifa member. I'm sticking around still, and this honestly is a well researched and produced podcast, but I can't give five stars knowing a historian is willing to turn such a blind eye to all sides. I recommend it, but beware. I have a feeling this isn't the last of the politics from Jamie :(

EXCELLENT! If you want british history told to you in an entertaining way, this is the podcast for you! Jamie's storytelling is excellent and thought provoking. It's also extremely well researched - I am learning so much from this podcast!

Ben V Sep 19 2020
Highly recommended. The podcast host clearly takes research seriously, and invites the listener to consider issues around source analysis and interpretation. He's generally pretty clear about what sources he's using, and honest about what those sources do and do not tell us. Despite the high level of detail, I've found the narrative easy to follow, even while listening to it in the background. It's one of the best amateur history podcasts I've listened to.

Excellent podcast, I love the in depth analysis of history that is otherwise seldom talked about - Alfred's cakes notwithstanding.

cactusbutt Jun 17 2020
This is my favourite history podcast I've ever listened too. The modern comparative commentary that Jamie does enlightens some of the more complex parts of Anglo Saxon history (the not-so-dark-ages). So refreshing to not have some old guy ramble on about dates and successive kings and wars. Loved the eps where he deep dives into different cultures of the times (not just the Brits, but all the northern Europeans!) and even try to make some of the recipes! Very well researched also.
