Summary The history of Britain is a story of kings and queens, battles and truces, discoveries and inventions, expansion and diplomacy. From William the Conqueror's arrival in 1066 to the end of the twentieth century, The Story of Britain celebrates the rich diversity of a people and culture, as well as the events, good and bad, that have shaped Britain, and the world, over the past thousand years. Royals, commoners, warriors, and scientists have all had parts to play, and each of their stories is told here. Timelines summarize each era in a quick-view format between each section, while bite-size chapters and full-color plates make this history easy to pick up and hard to put down
