The British History Podcast

The BHP is a chronological retelling of the history of Britain with a particular focus upon the lives of the people. You won't find a dry recounting of dates and battles here, but instead you'll learn about who these people were and how their desires, fears, and flaws shaped the histories of England, Scotland, and Wales.

episode 414: The Uprising

News of the victory at York spread fast, and people everywhere were finding their courage.



episode 413: The D

It was Fall of 1069, and the Danes were coming.



Dispatches from Hoth

Let it go, let it go.



episode 412: The B Word

The Godwinsons are back in England. Harold’s sons, along with a fleet of 64 Irish ships loaded down with fighters, have just hit the shores.  And it seems like they were students of history, because they were taking up the traditional family business.

episode 409: The First Sparks

Earl Robert lay dead at Durham. Along with 700 of his men. At least. The Chronicle bumps the numbers up a bit, claiming Earl Robert had died 900 of his soldiers at Durham. Either way, that’s a lot of dead Normans.

Happy New Year! It was 1069… nice… and as the new year dawned…things in England were getting a bit weird.

episode 407: Robbing the Hood

I feel for the English commoners in the late 1060’s. They had nothing to do with the arrival of the Normans… everything they suffered was the result of the actions of the nobles. Exclusively.
