Anglo-Saxon farmers… on the radio!

I was delighted to discover, albeit rather late, that BBC Radio 4’s “The Essay” has been running a 30-part series called “Anglo-Saxon Portraits” – with a notable Anglo-Saxon personage discussed by a notable expert in each 15-minute episode.

Better yet, the humble Saxon farmer gets a very interesting episode, courtesy of Prof. Helena Hamerow of Oxford University. At the time of writing, this and the other essays are still available on BBC iPlayer – and some have yet to be broadcast.

Farming Unearthed heartily recommends a listen!
