The History of England

Jun 30 2019 67.7k

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.

Absolutely superb series tracing the history of England. Beautifully explained, analysed and interpreted, often with a touch of humour and pineapples.

Really well researched historical podcast. Much as with Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast, it grants you an overview and a context sorely missed in BBC documentaries and textbooks. Duncan is better, but HoE has the advantage of not being American, and therefore the jokes are actually amusing. It's the thought that counts.

The history of England through a very personable man in a shed. Full of insight, gentle wit and dad jokes. A great and honest journey through history of Kings, peasants and gentry. We'll worth the heavy investment of time.
