The British History Podcast
The BHP is a chronological retelling of the history of Britain with a particular focus upon the lives of the people.

1 – A History of Britain
Hi! Welcome to the British History Podcast. My name is Jamie, and this show is a chronological retelling of the story of Britain, from its very earliest days when prehistoric man shared the island with Giant Deer and massive earth grinding glaciers… all the way to the dawn of the Second World War. This show focuses upon the people, the drama, and the real life events that shaped and molded this island into a global super power. The stories that you’re going to hear in this podcast continue to shape us today and many of the lessons learned by our ancestors still apply to us. Support the Show

3 – The Island at the Edge of the World – Part 1
56 BCE to 55 BCE. Julius Caesar is coming to Britain, and he’s bringing his friends. He claimed that he wanted to punish the Celtic warriors from Britain for interferring with his Gallic wars, but modern scholars suspect that he was simply trying to bolster his resume. Whatever the case, one of the most famous generals in Roman history is coming to our island at the edge of the world. And the Britons are waiting for him.
