History Highlights Podcasts -

This third episode is packed with intrigue, violence and summary executions, capturing the turbulent few weeks when this now peaceful corner of Kent was at the epicentre of the struggle for power in England between the weak, cash-strapped Edward II and a coalition of angry rebel barons.
