Historical Britain


This volume can be used both as a chronological history of the development of Britain and as a work of reference. It looks at the origins, evolution and progress of Britain's villages, towns, universities, pubs and parks, farms and industries, explaining everything from Iron Age forts to the iron bridges to the Industrial Revolution. Each entry describes the subject under discussion and sets it in the context of the developing pattern of Britain's history.

Designed to appeal to the general reader, as well as to students of archaeology and British history, the book illustrates archaeological sites and landscapes, cross-sections and plans of all kinds of buildings, as well as tools, agricultural and industrial machinery
