Medieval History for Fun and Profit
We've grown fond of this fortnightly tête-à-tête featuring medieval historians Dr Alice Rio and Dr Alice Taylor, both of King's College London. The two aim to give an account of real life in medieval England, often in response to listener questions: What did medieval people think was funny? What was their experience of childbirth? What did their world smell like? These are relaxed conversations between very personable scholars, recorded in what sounds like a remote corner of the university, and which transport us into a mysterious past. Can a half-hour be passed any more pleasantly? For history nerds, surely not.
