In this fascinating book, Tim Taylor and the Time Team reveal the history of Britain in a way that is accessible to everyone! Ideal for fans of the hit Channel 4 show or those who have an interest in history and want to read more into the key events that have shaped our nation, it tells us what happened when and why it's so important - from the Battle of Hastings to the Great Fire of London and World War II. Other key historical questions the book attempts to answer is whether the Bronze Age or Stone Age came first; just how much of an impact the Romans had on Britain as a nation; and how a nation as small as Britain came to command such a vast empire.
