When it Happened in Britain

When it Happened in Britain

Author: George Chamier Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/10/2009

This is a whistle-stop tour through 2,000 years of our nation's story from the Roman invasion to the Falklands War. Setting out the wide sweep of British history that is often ignored, historian George Chamier weaves together a reader-friendly combination of key dates with linking narrative. Here are all our good Kings and usurpers, low dealings and acts of heroism, moments of great conquest, empire or defeat - and through it all the story of the formation of the United Kingdom. All told in lively and amusing short chapters, this is the perfect book for the person who can never quite remember the key dates in British history or feels exasperated that their friends and family are so ignorant of British history.

When it Happened in Scotland

When it Happened in Scotland

Author: George Chamier Format: Hardback Release Date: 24/09/2009

From the Roman invasion of Caledonia in 80AD to the present day, George Chamier recounts the essential facts, figures and personalities of the history of Scotland. Who was the real King Macbeth? What were the origins of the 'Auld Alliance'? When was the 'Year of the Sheep'? In a series of short entries the nation's story is revealed for all who had forgotten what they were taught in class or have never been had the opportunity. Intertwined with entries covering the major events and ideas, Chamier also offers pen portraits of some of the great Scots throughout history - writers, politicians, economists, warriors and preachers. 1587 The execution of Queen Mary Mary mounted the scaffold at at Fotheringhay Castle in Northamptonshire on 8 February. After forgiving her executioner, she removed her outer clothing to reveal a chemise of deep red, the colour of Catholic martyrdom. It took two strokes of the axe to sever her neck - 'Sweet Jesus', she was heard to murmur after the first blow - and when the executioner lifted her head Mary's auburn wig came away in his hand to reveal a grey stubble.
