Description

The history of the nation, told through 500 of the 'landmarks' most associated with our greatest national events and figures such as...The All England Club, Banqueting House, Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Bodleian Library, Caernarfon Castle, Dounreay Nuclear Reactor, Fishbourne Roman Palace, Flatford Mill, The Foundling Hospital, Glasgow School of Art, Glencoe, John Murray Publishers, Jordans Quaker Meeting House, Offa's Dyke, Old Sarum, Plymouth Hoe, Port Sunlight, Rotherhithe Tunnel, Runnymede, Selfridges, Sherwood Forest, Slough Trading Estate, Smithfield, Southwell Workhouse, Spaghetti Junction, Speakers' Corner, Sutton Hoo, Tolpuddle, Trellick Tower, Woking Mosque...THE LANDMARKS OF BRITAIN promises to be the most unusual history of Britain to be published for years. Arranged regionally - but underpinned by a strong sense of chronology - the book embraces the whole of British history, encompassing battlefields, cathedrals and palaces, of course, but also places linked with great events in the worlds of science, literature, architecture, espionage, philanthropy, religion, romance, agriculture and industry. Each entry tells a tale of triumph or disaster: the discovery of penicillin, the writing of Paradise Lost, the abolition of the slave trade - these appear alongside battles, coronations and executions. Visit all 500 landmarks and you will have relived the epic of British history through the very fields and stones on which it happened.
