The British History Podcast focuses exclusively on Welsh History in these episodes.

264 – The Lost Rebellion Play in new window | DownloadIn the year 909 we get an odd entry from the Chronicle. “This year St. Oswald’s body was removed from Bardney into Mercia.” It’s an weird entry that caps a very strange section of the Chronicle.

But there was also a staunch British resistance to these incursions… Read more →
