The third and fourth volume in a five-part series telling the story of Great Britain’s history, from its earliest beginnings to World War I

Much loved by generations of children, this is a classic children’s history of Britain from the Romans to the death of Queen Victoria. First published in 1905, Henrietta Marshall’s beautifully written narrative is based on her answers to her children’s questions about the history of Great Britain, which they referred to as “home island.”

Quotes & Awards

  • “I was given [Henrietta] Marshall’s Our Island Story at Christmas 1936…and I’ve still got that copy…It was a direct inspiration for me in my career as a historian.”

    Antonia Fraser, New York Times bestselling author

  • “The reason that parents will go to such lengths to try to track down copies of Our Island Story is because of the sheer quality of the writing. Telling a story from history might be old-fashioned, but it stimulates a child’s imagination like nothing else.”

    Sunday Times (London)

  • Our Island Story is a marvelous antidote to the fractured, incoherent history most primary school children are taught today.”

    Daily Telegraph (London)

  • “Rank[s] as one of the most influential works of history of the twentieth century.”
