This was the first one of these that I've tried, and I really enjoyed it for a brief history of Medieval England.If you like historical fiction, but don't have the patience to read a history on a given time, this would be perfect for you.

An interesting compendium of information about Celtic history. I think some readers may find it more vague than they’d like, but unfortunately, there’s a limited amount of verified historical information about the Celts… as much as we like to romanticize them. This lecture series covered the geographical area and settlement, a bit of culture with emphasis on music, and a glimpse of Celtic culture in modernity. Overall interesting and worth the listen.
