About the Book

So many of us have, throughout our lives, been fed the history of the English people in bite-sized, unrelated chunks, so that we have no clear idea of the overall picture that makes up our national heritage. This invaluable little book aims to rectify that by providing ‘joined up history’ in an easy to read and manageable format. Unsure about who succeeded Richard III, or how the British Empire came to be so dominant and influential? Were the Normans from Normandy or Norway, and why did they invade in the first place? Which British scientists, thinkers and innovators had the most impact on the development of the country as we know it today? The answers are all here. Whether you are already a keen student of history in need of a refresher course, or are just keen to learn more about the country you have grown up in, The English Legacy is the perfect primer for readers of all ages.
