The weekly history show with a genealogy twist!
A history of Britain’s resurrection men. Suzie Lennox delves into the dark world of the body snatchers. Who were these criminals? How much was a body worth? How did they go about stealing the corpses? How worried were people about their loved ones remains? What theft prevention methods did people employ? Suzie answers all these questions and more!
The British Museum was fortified against attack. Manchester was in the hands of the Chartists. Over 3 million people signed a petition fighting for the right for all men to vote. Chartism is about more than a few blokes waving around a petition. It’s a vital part of British history. Find out more with expert Mark Crail.
Dr Sophie Therese Ambler & Dr Nick Barratt spill the beans on just how bad King John really was! In this medieval episode of #TwiceRemoved, my guests share their expertise on this fascinating period in history. We chat about everything from peasant rebellions to battlefield medicine.
My guest, expert genetic genealogist Michelle Leonard, shares her amazing DNA discoveries and family history stories. From identifying the bodies of WWI soldiers to personal feelings on a grandmother that died tragically you, Michelle’s stories give a fresh perspective on using DNA for family history.
About the show
Hi, I’m Natalie and I started #TwiceRemoved because I love history and I think everyone should get a chance to enjoy all the subject has to offer. Without requiring prior knowledge. Without the jargon or the fear of asking a ‘stupid question’. So, I sat down (over Zoom) with a host of historical experts from all different disciplines, to quiz them about their area of expertise. Of course, as a family historian each episode has at least a few genealogy questions too! So, come listen in, learning something new and enjoy the fun.
New episodes are published every Friday.
