This is a comprehensive guide to the richly eventful history of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. Drawing on the very latest findings of historians and archaeologists, and illustrated throughout with superbly detailed maps and photographs, it follows the story of the British Isles from the arrival of the first humans half a million years ago right up to the present day.
Meticulously researched by a team of some forty academics and experts, this is a wonderfully kaleidoscopic account of centuries of change and achievement, and one that brings the history of the British Isles fully to life.
