Quoted @stevhep

Also, on the subject of functioning walled cities I would nominate St Malo in Brittany

@TheRestHistory

How about the wonderful Mdina, Malta:

Quoted @holland_tom

Walls, huh, what are they good for?

@dcsandbrook & I explore.

Features everything from the brilliantly named Très Long Mur, history's oldest known territorial boundary, to Trump's 'wall' with Mexico.





When we say Wall, do you think Berlin or Hadrian? That’s the difference between @dcsandbrook and @holland_tom

We're recording a new @TheRestHistory today, on the subject of walls and borders. No doubt we'll cover Hadrian, Berlin and Mr Trump's wall, and I might sneak in my anecdote about the toilets on the Turkish-Bulgarian border. All questions and suggestions welcome!

@holland_tom @TheRestHistory @pompei79 And can you bring back the book recommendations, please!? What should I read after I finish Dominion?

Tomorrow's episode of @TheRestHistory is on historical fiction, and will offer - I hope - a range of reading recommendations with something for everyone!

I approve this message - and I urge all right-minded people to listen to our @TheRestHistory episode about this very topic. Could there be another American civil war?

A lockdown treat! Who, amid the misery and the cold, would not want to hear @stephenfry bring a touch of the Aegean to @TheRestHistory? Here is talking about his trilogy of books on Greek myths.

The earldom of Brixton, once so tantalisingly close, now looks out of reach for @holland_tom. And in another bad blow for my podcast colleague, the Languedoc regional tourist board are poised to open legal proceedings.

Quoted @holland_tom

This week's episode of @TheRestHistory is on conspiracy theories: yes, Elvis & lizards feature, but it is very far from knock-about. Conspiracy theories, after all, can kill.
