POURING BEES ON VIKINGS

MERRY CHRISTMAS! And what could be more festive than talk of pious Christians finally overcoming their pagan occupiers by clever use of marrying enemy Earls, raising a kick-arse nephew and stealing a corpse in the name of patriotism.

MAKING HISTORY IS BACK ON RADIO 4 IN THE NEW YEAR!

You can still catch up on iplayer, BBC Sounds or download the podcast here. In the previous series I've investigated icy prisons, poisonous plants, pre-reformation pews and Women's Victorian public toilets - or lack thereof

The new series will look at Greenwich Meridian, (The line I’m jumping over in the picture), Stonehenge, Welsh people in Scotland and lots more!
