Episode 1

He first meets a historian (“geezer called Anthony”) who tells him that he can trace his history back through Louis IX, Henry II and Eleanor of Aquitaine and William the Conqueror to the Viking king Rollo. Danny is delighted – “He’s livened me right up!” – so off to Scandinavia we speed. There, Danny takes part in a battle re-enactment in period dress and unremarkable headgear (“’Orns were a myff,” he explains), eats a Viking meal of axe-split sheep’s head, shark meat and whey and, after a brief rush to the khazi, listens to a lecture on Rollo’s warrior credentials from “clever Scandinavian geezer” Dr Søren Sindbæk.


Episode 2

30 January 2019. In this episode, Danny's first stop is Edward II and his French wife Isabella whose lives, to Danny's delight, play out like a medieval soap opera. As Danny romps through his family tree he dons 14th-century armour and learns to fight like his 19-times-great-grandfather, famous medieval knight Henry Hotspur Percy. To get closer to his Tudor ancestors Danny brushes up on his etiquette by learning to sing and dance just like one of Henry VIII's courtiers. And finally, Danny gets his hands on a ruff when his own family, in all their Tudor finery, join him at an Elizabethan sugar banquet.
