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 2 covers the years 1087 to 1327, a time of wars between the English and the Scots, of Crusades and of civil war. Yet in amongst the fighting lay the foundations of the modern state: the Magna Carta and the calling of the first parliament. Download and start listening now!

    " This was good, but moved really quickly, so you get a nice overview of the historical period, but no real detail. Also, it's not really for historical scholars, it's more of a history "lite" sort of thing. Worth listening to, but not exactly what I personally was looking for. "
