Love the History of English podcast and its website. The maps are great and the audio samples, like the Gregorian chants or "Sumer Is Icumen In" add so much to an already terrific podcast.

I also bought from the website the Beowulf audiobook, which was terrific, and my husband bought the Alphabet audiobook. We binged our way to episode 102 and now look forward to each new installment.

At the moment he has just finished looking at the influence of Viking settlements on Old English prior to the Norman conquest. I never knew that so much of the modern language was derived from these Old Norse influences. Really fascinating. Highly recommended.
