73 – And This Gives You Power Over Me?


Ok, it's been a while since we've spoken about the story. Instead, we've been chatting about the culture and the people, we've been speaking about digs and hoards, we've been discussed booze and horse dung. But we haven't spoken too much about the politics of the time.

    Hi Jamie,

    Can you make the picture a little bigger or zoomable?

    Not to be super picky, but I believe Frisian is pronounced “Free-zhun”. I have a couple friends who are Frisian-Canadians and that’s how they pronounce it.

      I have a friend who is from Friesland and he pronounces it “Frizz-ee-an”

      I’ve retired that following the Member Drive. I was getting complaints. ;)

    Not that I am pestering you for more Scots casts (Please, please, pretty please) but… I’d love to know more about the Stone of Scone.

      When we return to Scotland, I’ll try to remember. But if I forget, please let me know and I’ll chat a bit about it. :)

    Thanks! Loved exploring the Hoard but feel ready now to get back to battles and beheadings and such… I noticed that on Neil Oliver’s twitter he is described as an “International man of history”. After your adventure abroad with the Hoard… yep, I’d say you were an International man of history yourself… not sure that’s an improvement over Portladian hipster but… if the shoe fits… (not sure why my profile Pict – pun intended – isn’t showing up mmmm) Maybe I jumped in here without logging in… LOVE the pod… Thanks!

    Not to split hairs, but the area of Britain known as England wasn’t referred to as such until after the Anglo-Saxons had been well established there. Etymologically we’re looking at Angles>Angle-Land>Angland>England, So to say that the “English” were being cheap and that Hengist subsequently went on a rampage against them, or that they would “soon come to dominate England” is a bit misleading. I’m sure it was a slip of the tongue and your podcast is awesome, but to refer to a pre-Anglo-Saxon England is to put the Horsa before the cart, so to speak.

      I’m already regretting being picky, because this episode is fantastic. That being said, I got to make a Horsa pun.
