This episode, Tom and Sandra look at the Alani, a tribe that makes its way all the way from the Persia to become one of the most dominate groups in all of Gaul.

Not only do the Alans invade Gaul, they also defend it and at one point even set up a new Roman Emperor in Gaul.

They're a tribe that you don't hear much of in the English-speaking world, but their past is pretty amazing.

Grub - The Story of Food - Episode 11

Podcast cover
Read more

This episode, Tom and Sandra explore why English and more broadly, Brit food is saddled with such a bad reputation. With cities like London, boasting 11 million people and more languages than there are countries in the world, there are many cultures represented in both restaurants and cuisines. We learn that the English had a lot of challenges over hundreds of years, but have come through them all with a selection of foods both at home and at the take-aways and restaurants that take back seats to no one. Other than jellied eel. Seriously.

This episode we look at the evidence of decline in Gaul as the Roman empire's grasp is loosened starting in the 3rd Century A.D.

We see more evidence of looting, burying valuables, re-tasking buildings and other things that tell the tale of a empire slowly coming apart at the seams and the lengths people will go to try and maintain their quality of life.

Tom and Sandra look at life in Gaul at the height of the Roman Empire. With 21,000 kilometres of new roads built, hundreds of glass, iron, gold, silver, enamel workplaces created, and even a fashion trend export, Gaul and Rome have a barrel of good times. Yes, the Gauls invented the barrel. And then a cocktail party slapdown with yet another defeat of the Royal Navy at the hands of the French.

Hi, remember me? Yeah, it's been a while. Here's episode 40 and a promise for many more in the next year. I'm back after beating cancer (fingers crossed) as well as a number of lesser problems. So here we go, picking up, sort of, where we left off with an episode dedicated to Ambroise Pare, the French surgeon who didn't just modernize surgery but crime fighting and many other things, but apparently didn't help with his hoolahoop invention too much. Thanks to Sandra Richmond for helping out on this one and to the History Podcast friends - especially Zack from When Democracy Fails!

Episode 38 is an overview of Gaul as the Gauls were before and after Roman rule. We look at how they dressed and looked, their art and culture and the impact of Rome on the Gauls and on the Romans as a result of the Gauls.

And of course, we have a Cocktail Party Slapdown with a shoutout to Zack Twalmey because hey, we're covering a battle from the 30 Years War. The Battle of Lens was the last major battle in the war. France won, of course.

This week we wrap up the war in Gaul between the Romans and the Gauls and Caesar and Vercingetorix... sadly. The Battle of Alesia puts an end to the Gallic hopes for freedom, but it does mean better trade relations! Also we look at a sad story that spells the end of a village during the Second World War.
