This is the award-winning story of Britain, from the arrival of Julius Caesar in 55 BC to the death of Queen Victoria in 1901.

Christopher Lee's history of Britain provides the definitive radio account of the events and personalities that have shaped the British nation. From foreign invasions and war to economic crises and social revolution, this is a compelling journey through centuries of dramatic change.

Volume 1, covering the years 55 BC to 1087, tells the beginning of the story: 400 years of peace for the island of Britannia under the Romans before a plunge into the Dark Ages and the invasions of those who would become the English: Angles, Saxons, Danes, and Norwegians.

    " A quick sort of overview of early English history. It doesn't go into great detail, but it's very accurate and uses a lot of chronicles and other primary sources. I recommend it for anyone who just wants the basics. "

    " A good zip through picking up just the details and leaving out conjection. "
