Brunch With The Brits
I thought after we finish Sherlock HOlmes we'd continue learning about the lives of the Caesars after all Sparticus is being redone ... well anyway a listener suggested I rerun the first three so Eric for you we'll start with "The Meeting at Formei with Anton Lessing as Cicero.  We'll then move in to "This Sceptred Isle," in which we'll learn about Roman life in Britain.  And get in to the beginning of The DarkAges.  Those who want to learn more about the Dark Ages may I suggest a series of lectures from The Teaching Company about the early Middle Ages presented by Dr. Phillip Dileeder Chair of the History dDepartment at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg Virginia.  More at ofr there's always google.  With the Navy Lark we'll listen to "The lighthouse Lark," and with the rain we're having in California I think you'll enjoy it.  We'll hear an episode of My Music and end with Sherlock Holmes solving The Barrel Coronegt.  Please enjoy this exgtended Brunch.
