The Normans - History of England Dave Crowther
The Normans are to have a huge impact on the history of England so Dave devotes a whole episode to them. This was brought home to me personally as by sheer fluke this particular podcast happened to come up on my car stereo as I was out on business that took me through the town of Battle in East Sussex, and past the Norman Abbey built there to commemorate the battle of Hastings. The Normans are a bit like the Inland Revenue (the UK tax office). You probably don't like them but you can't ignore them.
