Legendary listener, Cameron Little, is building an interactive map of the various battles that occurred during the course of the Podcast. It is a work in progress, but this is so much fun I had to share!

And here is a second map by Cameron that takes us through to 840.

Here are some other maps that you might find useful.  If you have additional maps that you think could help people better understand the stories we’re discussing, please let me know!

  1. Hey jamie,

    I’m Bas from Haarlem, The Netherlands. I gotta say, i really like your show. I am listening every morning in the car to work. I actually look forward to the drive because of the show. I’m thinking of signing up, just to support you, but i have some other obligations that need also require funds. You know how it is. Anyway, i was browsing through the maps sections and this one gave a 404:


    Just my $0,02. Oh, i am currently reading this book: Caesar, Life of a Colossus, by Research Fellow Adrian Goldsworthy. It’s a very good read if you like the Roman history. That’s it!

    1. Bas, I have found Adrian Goldsworthy a fantastic read for all I have read of his so far. He has also expanded into Napoleonic era historical fiction

  2. I would love to see the land control progression of the different Anglo-Saxon kingdoms from the early migration period up until Alfred the Great.

  3. Agree with Steve C and Timothy B and would add – we could really do with a map showing the period we’ve just covered on the podcast – the extension of Mercia and Wessex in the light of Athelflaed and Edward’s campaigns. I’ve been disappointed with Google searches: there’s a good one on the Great Heathen Army laying waste to the Heptarchy and another showing the resolution. But after that? Its so odd that the story of the making of England is so untold.

  4. Wow! I love maps! And I really love this section. Looking forward to further updates as they come. In the meantime, I have so much material to explore. It took me 4 months to catch up listening to the nearly 300 podcasts. Now I will need another bunch of months to add the visual to my memories. This whole thing is such a wonderful service for your listeners. Thank you very much.

  5. Thanks for the maps!! Just listening now to the episodes on Wales, and the Scottish kings/mormeres after Cnut, and being able to follow along visually helps the information stick in my brain better.
