Anglo Saxon England - History of England Dave Crowther
In this episode Dave pauses his narrative to have a look at what Anglo Saxon England was like just before the Norman invasion. If you are listening to the whole series in one sitting this is probably a handy break to pace out the events. If you are following it weekly you may well have found it a bit annoying since it comes in the middle of the build up to the battle of Hastings which has been set up in the previous episode.
Having said that, it is interesting enough and the bit about place names is particularly fun.
