This book tells the story of Britain and her people
in a new way. A series of pictures is chosen to tell
the story, illustrating not only the great events of
history of which we read in our schooldays, but every
aspect of the life of Britain's people through two
thousand years of history. Narrative passages link
together the pictures, to each of which is appended
a full explanatory note.

Opening with an impression of our cave-dwelling
ancestors of half a million years ago, the pages show
us the Britain of Caesar's invasion, the Norse and
Danish invaders, Alfred, great hero of Anglo-Saxon
England, the coming of the Normans, the life of castle
and cottage in the feudal ages, the signing of Magna

Peasants' Revolt, the Tudors, the glory of the
Elizabethan age, Shakespeare's England, The Civil Wars

institutions ender the Georges, England at bay during
the Napoleonic Wars, peaceful and prosperous Victorian
England, the rumblings of the storm before the first
