William Rufus and the First Crusade - History of England Dave Crowther
William Rufus is introduced very quickly, and we then get a whistle stop account of the Crusades. I must say I could easily have got by quite nicely without the Crusades bit. Dave did anticipate this by saying that it was his podcast and he can do what he likes. And of course it is and he can.
William Rufus is more interesting and I could have quite happily listened to more about him, though given that we are still way back in the 11th Century maybe there aren't enough sources for there to be much more to tell. (And if you are reading this Dave, you might want to have another go at editing it. There are a couple of short snaps that get repeated.)
