Review – History of Britain & Ireland by R G Grant, Ann Kay and Michael Kerrigan
Imagine having a book that brings to life 5,000 years of our country’s incrediblehistory.
Dorling Kindersley’s definitive visual History of Britain & Ireland is the nearest thing there is to being transported back in time to see the people and events that shaped how we live today.
This impressive tome traces the key and often colourful events that have defined the British Isles from the first prehistoric settlements and Viking invasions to the Elizabethan and Victorian ages through to the Iraq and Afghan wars of the 21st century.
Packed with spectacular illustrations, supporting features and a clear, concise text, you can enjoy exploring the long and fascinating story of the British Isles and study the profiles of key people in history such as Geoffrey Chaucer, Alfred the Great, Charles Dickens, Queen Elizabeth I and Winston Churchill.
