Loremen S3 Ep 107 - William Adams, The First Englishman in Japan Part 1

Season 3, Episode 107,   May 19, 2022, 12:00 AM

Content warning - we say "willy" a LOT

In 1600, William Adams was the first Englishman to visit Japan. Little was known about Japan at that time, apart from IN Japan where they knew pretty much all about it. In this, Part One of Adams's tale, we follow what must be one of history's most meandering, misbegotten and (probably) malodorous sea voyages.

They really did not plan it well.

The Loreboys are also exploring unknown territory with this, our first 2-part episode. The full story of William Adams was simply too long and revolting for a single episode. Part Deux will be with you in two weeks' time, because we're going to take next week off and have a little rest.

Loreboys nether say die!
