129 – The Life of King Wulfhere

About a year and a half ago I did a series on the Staffordshire hoard. And talking with the experts and viewing the relics was easily one of my favorite moments from the entire experience of putting together the BHP. As you might remember, the hoard was found in Mercia and it is dated to roughly around the era that we’re talking about right now. In fact, I would be willing to wager that for most of you, the first time you heard the name “Wulfhere” was during those episodes. Because it’s possible that the Hoard had some level of connection to him, and it might have actually been his.

  1. Yeah, the hoard episodes were great, you also did a great job getting interesting guests on the show. Really got me hooked on the BHP :)

    1. :) I’ve actually been thinking about catching up with them and seeing if they’ve learned anything new since we last spoke.

      1. That sounds like a good idea, Seems like there is still alot of stuff happening around the hoard.

        I would personally love to have more archaeology episodes, like the Sutton Hoo episodes, those were really great as well. But I guess it might be hard to find other excavations that were just as exiting as that one.
