History's Most is a podcast that delves into interesting, under-reported and controversial topics in history and applies superlatives to them. We deep dive headfirst into a variety of topics, from history's most guilty man, to the most disastrous voyage, to complicated wars and confusing politicians.

In this episode, we are joined by archaeologist, historian, and author Max Adams to discuss one of the most fascinating and mysterious periods of time: the 5th Century in Britain.

With very little contemporary sources, the dark ages are a widely debated era, where fact is very hard to separate from myth. But over the next few episodes, we will be talking to multiple historians to help unravel some of those mysteries, and shed some light on what really happened in History's Most Puzzling Century.

Thanks so much to Max for coming on the show! Find his latest book, The First Kingdom: Britain in the Age of Arthur, here:  (Paperback coming soon!)
