    Hi everybody!I am not british and even not a native speaker, but after fist time listening to this podcast 2 weeks ago I became addicted to it ;-)So excuse me if I do some mistakes...I've studied history at the university for about 10 years ago... British history was not my major :-))) So I guess I've missed some pretty interesting stuff drinking beer in stead of listening to my profs... But honestly speaking they failed to deliver the subject in such amazing manner as Jamie doing it.

    I studied it in Moscow State Lomonossov University.First 2 years it was general history and after that I specialised on Ethnology / Social Anthropology. So we had Ancient history (Greece, Rome, Asia), then Medieval History of Europe, Asia. History of Europe and Americas in the New Age and Modern Times (I'm not sure if I translate it correct, but sort of...) and hell lot of Russian history from early ages to modern times. But not special British history. It was always a part of european history course, but you know, there are some other countries to cover in this kind of course ;-)

    Wow, that's quite a broad area of study!  Also, it sounds like a lot of fun.  :)

    I don't know what is the structure of the History studies in the USA or UK. In Russia you have first 2 years general introduction in all possible fields of history (History, Anthropology, Archeology, History of politic movements, Chronology, History of Art). We had to make excavations after first year of study (that was fun  ;) digging all day long and drinking with your profs all night long  ;D). After 2 years you have to decide which field of history is interesting for you. For me it was Ethnology, something that is historical and contemporary at the same time. We had a lot of expeditions and field research. That was fun :) But no way to earn money... So after History Diploma I've studied business... I fought the law and the law won...That's one of the reasons I find it really great that you are doing this podcast. It is how it should be people should do something they like and not what they have to or others expect them to do. Hope you'll get enough members to do this podcast for years. There is so much to tell not only about British History ;)
