Elliot your a dick
Whilst listening to this episode today (yeah, I've only just found this podcast!), it reminded me of something which occurred just over a year ago. My friends fiance and her team of archeologists uncovered two Roman statues at a site in the path of HS2. The site appeared to be a Bronze Age burial ground, turned Roman mausoleum, turned Anglo Saxon church, turned Norman church. And they decided to destroy it in the 1960s! It had a lot of media coverage at the time but this is one of the articles: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/once-in-a-lifetime-discovery-of-roman-statues-found-beneath-medieval-church-in-england-180978985/ HS2 is very controversial and will probably feature in many British History Podcasts in the next millennium... however the large amounts of excavations being carried out, could be a positive externality to the whole project for historians with hopefully more finds to come.
anyone else not able to hear past min 50approx? i get a file error... I even downloaded the episode
Can't please everyone, but for myself I think it's a fantastic podcast, my advice for those who aren't really happy with the presentation or the host and or can't help finding mistakes. Dont listen... Hand jobs
As might be expected, this Yank has no feel for the feudal system. For a contrasting feel, see the works of Julius Evola, tutor to the SS, who criticised the Nazis for being insufficiently right-wing. Blood, honour and fidelity were the essence of feudalism-- loyalty to one's liege-lord-- and this Yank underappreciates the appeal of such qualitiès to a landless, uneducated pleb who, quite understandably, wanted to pledge himself to something higher. The Normans, with their castles and cathedrals, were that Something Higher. Class struggle had nothing to do with it.
Queens dead. British History in the making.
excellent stuff as always
I've been listening for a few years now after finding it and tell everyone about it. You can tell the amount of effort that is put it in and Jamie and Zee do an amazing job. Amusing reading the comments from people that don't like his politics too. Keep up the good work.
MIA song at the end.. beautiful 👌🏾
Loved it. Had me hoping Harry might pull it off this time. Over 3 hours of masterful storytelling. The ending was *chefs kiss*.
trying to listen but there is music in the background. It makes it hard to follow. Just speech would be better.
The goose is loose. "391 - The Battle of Hastings" Exceeds 3 hours. Exceptionally formidable.
This episode was gripping. I honestly got upset, knowing what the outcome for England is. Amazing storytelling, just phenomenal.
Masterful. Podcasting at its absolute best.
This is an exciting narration of the build up and battle of Stamford Bridge. It's told from both sides which adds depth to the understanding of what happened. The use of music adds to the action. This episode is wonderful and should be put up for an award.
Why the negativity in the comments? Do these people comment on every podcast that they don't listen to? Seems like an exhausting hobby. I love Jamie's style and accent!
"Sh*t and p*ss*
excellent podcast. Honestly it made me spoiled with other podcasts
