Some enjoyable tales here

This book is an easy listen - it takes you through tales from the early part of England's history. A few commonly believed myths are dispelled, and while this is no weighty historical tome I think most people will find some things to delight them and learn about in here. It is well narrated and if you are looking for a breezy canter through the period then this will do just fine. I certainly enjoyed it and have bought some of the others in the series, so a thumbs up from me.
