The Seven Ages of Britain

By (author) Hywel Williams

Hywell Williams tells the British story in its chronological, political and geographical entirety, from the Roman invasion of Britannia in the first century AD to the fast-changing, multi-ethnic Britain of the second decade of the third millennium, and from the building of Hadrian’s Wall to the Scottish independence referendum of 2014. Narrated in lucid and richly informative prose, and amplified by sixty capsule biographies of Great Britons from Bede to Brunel and from Dickens to Darwin, SEVEN AGES OF BRITAIN is a sweeping and enthralling but intellectually serious journey across two millennia of British history. It is the perfect popular introduction to the key events and turning-points of our nation’s past. As such it belongs on the bookshelf of any reader with a curiosity about our island’s story.
