Brexit 1.0: Rome Abandons Britain | 401AD-410AD

After nearly four centuries of Roman rule, the Roman Empire decides to abandon Britain in circa 410AD, initiating the near century long chaos of "Sub-Roman Britain."

Have you ever wondered about all the history we’ve missed? The amazing figures that are seemingly forgotten, incredible events passed over, or what a picture of true world history actually looks like? Or how history played out in the eyes of those who lived it and made it? The A.D. History Podcast explores the last two thousand years of world history, in an innovative new way. Join hosts Paul K. DiCostanzo and Patrick Foote as they examine the past two millennia, beginning in 1 AD, progressing forward ten years every episode until they reach the modern day. Within each ten-year installment, Paul and Patrick aim to share incredibly important, but often overlooked historic events and figures from around the world in prospective fashion; trying to see history through the eyes and in the world of those who lived it. By identifying these sometimes lesser known, but in no way less significant aspects of history, A.D. History seeks to identify the many disparate threads that weave the fuller, richer tapestry of history from around the world.
