    Wonderfully researched and told in the way history should- as gossipy stories about people.

    An excellent and in depth retelling of history in a way that fascinates the listener. No matter the material, granular comparisons of the different versions of the Saxon Chronicles, how Land charters reveal political machinations or even revelations as to intrigues evidenced by coin minting, the hos is able to effortlessly make the information interesting.

    I love this podcast. It’s witty, very well researched and presented. I like how Jamie presents differing arguments or theories and supports each one with the evidence. And just when you are feeling overwhelmed by all the craziness of the Roman era he sums up what he just said and gives you that “ah-ha” moment.

    I have a BA in History and I love the depth of this show! Plus I laughed out loud at the gym when then Goths cane and he played the Smiths and Depeche Mode. Awesome!

    It’s engaging - funny - and must have taken thousands of hours to research ( you can really tell Jamie is a good lawyer ) and the narrative is witty and non pretentious ( Jamie you would be fabulous in front of a jury ) - oh I forgot to say I have learnt so much since I started listening .
