Making Sense of Medieval Britain - Sarah Woodbury

Making Sense of Medieval Britain

Medieval Wales and Britain in general is my thing (obviously!), and since I can’t get enough, I kind of assume everyone around me can’t either 🙂 Thus, I’ve started a series of videos about the history of Britain.

The videos will be put up weekly. This week we have Making Sense of Medieval Britain, where I explain about the various peoples who lived in/conquered/migrated to Britain during the medieval period in six minutes. With graphics!

  1. Thank you so much, Sarah, for all of this wealth of information. I guess you could call me a history freak. I just can get enough of it. I am also a Genealogist. The historical background you give lays a foundation for a rich background in which to understand the people who lived in these times.
    Thank you again.

  2. Thanks for pointing out that the Catholic Church started out as catholic with a lower case “c”. Since this was the beginning of the Christian religion, they were called the “catholic” – as its first meaning of universal – – the universal church.
    Again, thanks, Sarah and Dan for these videos, it makes me feel I’ve had a little visit along a history professor!

  3. I live in Chile, and medieval history is plainly outside my experience . And I just love it!!
    Castles were only mentioned at school, I never could imagine a real one…
    But only one thing would make these trips perfect… you see I can read and write English, but I am not able to follow the spoken language. Would it be possible to append some written explanation in all these so interesting trips?

  4. I’m huge new fan. Making sense of Britain help me sort it all out in my head. Your books and you tube visits inspire me to keep going after the recent loss of my son. You take me to a magical place which I pray one day I can see for myself. I am 10 books down, watched all your videos and am working my way through every one of them. In the meantime keep them coming as they keep me going. Thankyou

    1. Oh I’m so glad you wrote me, and I’m so sorry about the loss of your son. I am grateful to hear that my books can in any way be of help. All the best to you … Sarah
