89 – WelshCast Part Two: All The Comforts of Rome (well… some of them)

89 – WelshCast Part Two: All The Comforts of Rome (well… some of them)

We’re now at the point where Rome has withdrawn from Britannia (and more important to our story, from Wales), and today we’re going to talk about the impact that had upon the people. I can guess what you’re thinking. Who cares that Rome withdrew? Their legacy was violence and subjugation, their accomplishments were a pale reflection of the Greeks from whom they imitated, and they were largely devoid of any serious innovation. And to that I...

88 – WelshCast Part One: From the Stone Ages to the Withdrawal of Rome

Ever since I did the Scotcast I’ve been receiving messages on facebook, on twitter, on the forums, and I’ve even been getting personal emails asking for more about Wales. And my response has always been the same, I’ll do it but not yet. Well, I think that right now will be the best time to get that ball rolling. Why? Because the Germanic East and the Celtic West are about to come into direct conflict. Sure, things have never been all that...

87 – Concubinage and Apartheid in Anglo Saxon England

87 – Concubinage and Apartheid in Anglo Saxon England

Last episode we ended at 597. For those of you who are really into Anglo Saxon history, you might recognize that date as the date that Christianity gets reintroduced to Anglo Saxon Britain. It’s a big deal. A huge deal, in fact. It will bring war, it will bring chaos, and it will bring all manner of changes in the lives of the people in what will eventually become England. And one of the big changes has to do with sex. Now the truth of it...

86 – The Fall of Ceawlin… and others

Ok, from the title you might have gathered that we’re going to be talking about Ceawlin today.  Now from all this discussion of various anglo saxon leaders, you might have noticed that while I’ve been saying Cynric, Cerdic, and Ceawlin… with C being a CH sound… we also have this Cutha fellow in Wessex, and Creoda in Mercia.  And there the C is being pronounced with a hard C sound rather than a CH.  So what’s the...

85 – Ceawlin and the Sons of Ida

85 – Ceawlin and the Sons of Ida

So it’s 568. And things in what will someday become England are still chaotic. Remember what was going on up north in Bernicia? Where Ida, who was probably part of some sort of Anglian group, had taken control of Bamburgh, then he died, and then his sons started taking over for him? Well, that’s still going on. It looks like Adda is probably dead. Maybe. It’s really muddy. And like I mentioned earlier, he probably was the king who was...
