Battle of Hastings, 1066, Part 2


The newly crowned King of England, Harold Godwinson faced two invasions within days, firstly from the viking Harold Hardrada in the north, and then William Duke of Normandy on the south coast. This is the story of probably the most important battle ever fought on English soil.

  1. Great work so far the effort and work involved shows through and every episode is both fascinating and informative – I was looking for something to follow mike Duncan’s history of Rome and this is it superb stuff keep up the good work

    May I make 1 suggestion when binge listening or re listening the current naming convention on iTunes makes for complicated referencing (the long title first and then the specific battles means it’s harder to fine the episode you are looking back on

    If not too much work it would be good to number every podcast in ascending order before the podcast name from te intro upwards (I know this works for battles but would make the whole user experience much better ) it’s a minor change though to functionality and the caliber of the podcast and research and info is second to none keep up the great work

  2. Thanks for your kind words James, and your suggestion. I will do as you describe and number the podcast titles. Carl

  3. I too found this podcast after listening to Duncan’s ‘History of Rome’ and ‘Revolutions’. Like Duncan, Carl Rylett tells an objective story full of detail and without bombast. No BS, just history the way that it should be told. Thanks Carl, and please keep them coming.
