Description


In this one hour read, explore the fascinating history and birthplace of one of the world's greatest empires, from ancient influences to the modern day.


Although England is often mistakenly considered synonymous with the island of Great Britain, which consists of England, Scotland, and Wales, this small country has a rich and unique history that has influenced the development of global history as we know it.


While you may be familiar with many of the more recent innovations and media from England - from film and television to inventors like Tim Berners-Lee (the creator of the World Wide Web), how much do you know about the thousands of years it took to get to this point?


Have you ever wondered exactly how England's culture developed from medieval times to the industrial era and beyond? Or questioned the family tree of the royal family, who are still so well known today?


If, like so many other history buffs, you've been itching to expand your horizons and broaden your knowledge base, you've come to the right place.


Dominic Haynes shares a passion for history and learning with his readers, spawning the birth of several books that provide insight into the thrilling, sometimes surprising, histories of many of the world's great nations.


Whether you're a proud Anglophile or just starting to learn about the culture of England, you'll find stories of battles and historical events that truly bring the past to life.


In this book, here is just a fraction of what you will discover:


  • A detailed exploration of England's history, starting in 600 BCE and spanning thousands of years up to the present
  • The fraught and tension-filled disputes over the rightful claim to the English throne that threw the country into chaos
  • How the English language came to consist of French, Germanic, and Latin roots and spread across the globe
  • The modern cities that can trace their origin back to the invasion of the Romans
  • Missteps and betrayals between families that helped shape the dynasties and empires that emerged from humble tribal beginnings
  • Dramatic clashes between powers that led to the rise and fall of multiple dynasties throughout history
  • How to decipher the complex marriages and relationships that led to alliances and falling outs among many of the great powers of the past and present
  • The story of the establishment of the Church of England, which remains a powerful force even to this day


And much more.


Contrary to most people's beliefs about history, learning about the past should never be boring. You have the opportunity to discover the true events that unfolded throughout millennia - don't wait for another second to dive in.
