The History of England Podcast.
I am a rabid podcast listener on many topics: comedy, politics, writing craft etc. One that is influencing me at the moment is a great history podcast, The History of England. The presentation is understated, but clear and the personable nature of the retelling and the acknowledgement of the limitations of sources gives it a comfortable touch. I've just gone past good ol' 1066 and loved the Norse/Anglo-Saxon 'interactions'. I hadn't realised the extent of the influence beyond the Dane Law. We'd have a very different history if William hadn't done his thing. This has given me some inspiration that I'm trying to sort through with in regards to a fantasy setting. Anyway, Check it out.
