Rich in fascinating detail, from the general (how a medieval cathedral was built) to the particular (the effect of climatic changes on 18th century fashion). Historical Britain enables the reader to understand not only the specific subject - whetherMoreRich in fascinating detail, from the general (how a medieval cathedral was built) to the particular (the effect of climatic changes on 18th century fashion).

Historical Britain enables the reader to understand not only the specific subject - whether a long barrow, a fortified bridge or a Victorian pumping station - but also its chronological place in the evolving jigsaw of Britains history. Each section contains suggestions for where to find local examples of the topic in question and at the back of the book will be found a full list of Sites and Museums together with a glossary, a list of Further Reading and three indexes.

Armed with this hugely informative book, with its clear explanations and lively illustrations of everything from Iron Age forts to iron bridges, the reader can unravel and make sense of Britains past more completely than ever before.
