Battle of Brunanbuhr, Part 3


In AD 937 took place ‘the Great Battle’ of early medieval Britain, a time when the political and cultural map of the isles was forming, which still exists today. The King of Wessex, Athelstan, grandson of Kin g Alfred the Great, was forced to confront an alliance of Scots, Vikings and northern Britons in his attempt to become King of all Britain (also see maps page)

  1. You asked for feedback: keep doing what you’re doing, and what seems good to you. You’re a natural. This quickly became one of my favorite podcasts. I’m as pleased when I see there’s a new episode up as when one from Mike Duncan (History of Rome, Revolutions) or a Hardcore History appears.

    Most podcasts I listen to while I’m active, working or what have you, but this one I find perfect for winding down after a long day. Quiet time, when u can relax and focus. Thanks for that.

    (I gave an iTunes review back in February, which still stands, though if I wrote it now my praise would be even greater).

  2. This is a fantastic series. It has given me new understandings of European/Western history. The world is a more explicable place.
