    Hi my name is Richard.I'm from Peterborough in the UK, a city that pops up very often it seems with a kind of extras role in history. I spent most of my childhood growing up in the Fens of Thorney and have always been interested in the history of the area and in general.I have only been a short term listener to the show having found the podcast almost by accident as it was in the noteworthy section on the podcast ap about 2 or 3 weeks back. Since then as I have a lot of time to listen due to my job as a greenkeeper I am already onto the Staffordshire hoarde episodes.Jamie's chatty and familiar style certainly makes the podcast entertaining and informative. I am currently pondering starting a history degree or some other subject for personal and career advancement. We'll see soon what I choose but history has so many advantages to it in terms of writing,  understanding, creative arguement and research skills its win win really.

    Hi Richard,I'm really glad you're enjoying the show (and the Staffordshire Hoard episodes).  Hopefully in about 6 months I'll be able to talk to Deb and everyone again and see what new stuff we've learned from examining the Hoard.  It's certainly an exciting time for British history and archaeology.Anyway, welcome to the community and good luck with your degree!
