The Lion of Justice - History of England Podcast Dave Crowther
Another week, another brutal Norman tyrant comes to the throne. This week its Henry I. I don't know much about this period of English history and I must say that these early monarchs, and I'll take Dave's word for it that Henry was famous for his justice. In this episode he comes across as another brutal Norman thug, but it is an interesting listen nonetheless. The bit about surnames at the end was interesting - if I were Dave I would have put it at the beginning rather than the end. I find that if I am hearing a story I sort of turn off when it reaches the conclusion and reach for the fast forward button. If I hear some background before the story it gives me something to look at for while I am listening. But maybe that is just me.
