After listening to this overview, check out the first part of our ongoing Brief History of Poland series, in which Bill looks in more detail at the year 966 and the symbolic baptism of the early Polish state. He examines the pre-Christian cultures of the region, and asks whether the entry to western Christian Europe was also a moment of cultural colonisation.
