Book Description

A fascinating guide to the 100 most important historical sites in Britain, from the editor of BBC History Magazine

From the Back Cover

In this fascinating tour of Britain's 100
most important historical sites, BBC History
Magazine editor David Musgrove takes us on an
unforgettable journey through Britain's history,
from the Roman invasion to the present day.

Each site has been nominated by one of our
foremost historians of British history, as the
place they believe to be the most significant,
and Musgrove has visited each one to provide
a guide for visitors alongside the captivating
stories that make each of them great.

Covering the length and breadth of the
British mainland and thousands of years of
history, 100 Places That Made Britain visits
familiar sites such as the Tower of London
and Runnymede, as well as less well-known
places such as Rushton Triangular Lodge in
Northamptonshire - a three-sided, threethemed
house built during the Reformation
and designed to represent the Holy Trinity
- and Porthcurno, the heart of the Victorian
telegraph network on the far west coast of
Cornwall. Each essay adds another layer to our
understanding of Britain's story, whether it be
an advance in politics, religion, law or culture.

Bringing the vast history of this small island
to life, 100 Places That Made Britain is a
captivating historical compendium that will
have every reader criss-crossing the country to
explore its myriad treasures.
