Description

From ancient times to the present day, the story of England has been laced with drama, intrigue, courage and passion - a rich and vibrant narrative of heroes and villains, kings and rebels, artists and highwaymen, bishops and scientists. In a three-volume series, Robert Lacey aims to capture 100 of the most pivotal moments: the stories and extraordinary characters who helped shape a nation. This first volume begins in 7150 BC with the life and death of Cheddar Man and ends in 1381 with Wat Tyler and the Peasants' Revolt. We meet the Greek navigator Pytheus, whose description of the Celts as prettanike (the "painted people") yielded the Latin word Britannici. We witness the Roman victory celebrations of AD 43, where a squadron of elephants were paraded through Colchester, and we visit the New Forest in 1100, and the mysterious shooting of King William Rufus. With insight, humour and detail, Robert Lacey brings to life the stories that made England, from Ethelred the Unready to Richard the Lionheart, the Black Prince to the Venerable Bede.
