Edmund Ironside and Cnut- History of England Dave Crowtherl
Edmund Ironside has one of the best sobriquets of any Saxon king. Sadly it didn't translate into long run military success and he ended up dieing and the Dane Cnut became the undisputed king of England.
As this podcast has developed it has moved steadily into periods where more and more is known about what actually happened. Although Dave gives every impression of having enjoyed the earlier ones immensely I have a feeling that listeners will find this podcast the best in the series yet mainly because with a clearer idea of what is going on everything is a lot a clearer which is much easier on the ear. I would go so far as to say that although there is nothing wrong with the earlier ones, you might do well to start listening here.
