britishhistorypodcast:

We need to have a chat. 

I often get the question - sometimes in the form of an e-mail, sometimes in the form of a complaint on the Facebook community, and sometimes in the form of a bad review on iTunes - and it all essentially boils down to this: 

"Why aren’t you at 1066 yet?" 

And, I get it - most of us learn British history as a thing that STARTS at 1066. Everything before 1066 is boiled down to 1) Stonehenge/Druids, 2) ROMANS!!! and 3) Anglo-Saxons???

That’s the first chapter of all your history books as a kid, so I get that people get frustrated when they see the show as spending all this time on things that happened before the real show really starts at 1066 with the Norman conquest.  

The problem with that view is that it’s simply wrong. British history does not start at 1066, there were thousands of years of genuine history being made by real, fascinating peoples. It’s so deep and rich I could easily spend the rest of my life NOT getting to 1066. But, I also find 1066 and post-1066 Britain fascinating, so I’m definitely going to get there. 

But I am definitely going to give the over thousand years of rich, important history before that it’s due attention. Partly because it’s important - even 1066 doesn’t make ANY sense unless you know who these peoples were. You certainly won’t understand modern Britain today without understanding what was there before 1066. 


But the real reason why I cover pre-1066 in such detail is because. it’s. awesome. 

It rocks. Seriously. 

There are heroes and and villains that rival anything you’ve ever read in any fantasy book or any Marvel movie. People you’ve never even heard of, but whose lives built the legends from our favorite stories from Arthur to Game of Thrones. 

History is our story. I’m going to tell you as much of it as I can - Here’s the story of Edwin of Deira.

men like girls who “don’t know they are beautiful” because they are afraid that one day you will realise that you are the sun and the stars and he is nothing but a discarded plastic bag clogging up the ocean that you are
