    The Venerable Brett

    Hi. I've been listening for a while now, and recently became a member. It's a great presentation, and Jamie hits the right tone – history, combined with the often black humour of the times. Recently my parents visited Gloucestershire (?) where the paternal line originates from. Though like many Australians I'm something of a mixed breed: English, Scottish, German, and god knows what else, it makes me wonder – were they peasants, or clergy, or men of violence who loved to fight and feast? Did they live quiet lives of relative peace, or short and brutal lives of indentured servitude? Did they perform unspeakable rituals in oak groves? We'll never know, but the podcasts brings these possibilities to life…

    That's a really interesting way to look at our ancestors. Now you have me wondering too. Welcome to the forums!
