    So much detail on early British history !

    Wow! This is a really detailed history of Britain. I gather it's inspired by the History of Rome and has a similar feel, but Jamie comes across as much more relaxed and with a bit more humour (eg Sheep sound effects for 'boring, nothing much happening' and "Argggh" for the death of sons of Northumbrian kings.) While it is detailed and so the progress seems slow, I have enjoyed every single podcast and was gutted when I caught up and had to start waiting for the next episode.
