In this brilliant new book, BBC History Magazine editor Dave Musgrove takes us on an unforgettable journey through British history, from the Roman invasion to the present day. Musgrove has asked the foremost British Historians, including Dominic Sandbrook and David Starkey, to nominate the sites they believe to be the most important in our history, and has visited each site to provide guides for visitors alongside the captivating stories that make each one great.Covering the length and breadth of the British mainland and thousands of years of history, 100 Places that Made Britain visits famous sites such as the Tower of London and Runnymede, as well as less well-known places like Rushton Triangular Lodge in Northamptonshire - a three-sided, three-themed house built during the Reformation and designed to represent the Holy Trinity - and Jarrow, home of the first chronicler of Anglo-Saxon Britain, The Venerable Bede. Each essay adds another layer to our understanding of Britain's story, whether it be an advance in politics, religion, law or culture.Bringing the vast history of this small island to life, 100 Places that Made Britain is a captivating historical compendium that will have every reader criss-crossing the country to explore its myriad treasures.
