  • Engaging, informative and easy to listen to

    I read all of Livy's books years ago, but I got far more from this podcast. I have listened to the whole series and I'm thinking about starting again. Such an engaging approach to history - discusses all the key figures, but is careful to avoid the "great man" approach.

  • 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.

  • If you loved The History of Rome, this is your next podcast

    I have to agree that this is indeed the perfect continuation to the History of Rome podcast. I love them both.

  • Philosophy ! All you need to know and you need to know all of it.

    This is probably my favourite podcast. I am interested in both philosophy and history and this history has opened my eyes to the Arabic/Muslim period which I knew nothing about. I have also learned a lot of subtle religious background to both Christianity and Islam. Unfortunately I have now caught up and have to keep waiting for the next episodes. Don't miss out on the sister podcast - History of Indian Philosophy.
