Synopsis

The History of Britain Pocket Companion by Jo Swinnerton

From King Harold to Elizabeth II, this fascinating and unique book offers a view of the oddities, quirks, origins and stories behind the history of Britain that has made the country what it is today. Starting, quite literally at the beginning, the reader is taken on an unorthodox tour through the lesser known nuggets of British history. 'The History of Britain Pocket Companion' provides the reader with a fascinating range of notes, quotes, facts and stats. Britons have always been fond of looking backwards and now is no exception. The television schedules are brimming with history programmes and the rise of the celebrity historian continues.
