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 continue our discussion of 5th Century Britain. This time, we are joined by Emeritus Professor of Medieval Archaeology at Cambridge, and author of The Emergence of the English, Susan Oosthuizen.

With her help, we continue to dive down the rabbit-hole of Britain's so-called "Dark Ages", to hear her opinions on change vs. continuity, how British society may have evolved over time gradually following the fall of the Roman Empire rather than an immediate collapse, we look at and discuss the archaeological evidence which supports these hypotheses, and much more.

A huge thanks to Susan for coming on the show! Check out her book, The Emergence of the English, here:
