Please note that at 1.3Kg. this book will require additional postage outside of the UK. This Sceptred Isle tells the gripping story of British history from Caesar's invasion in 55 BC to Queen Victoria's death in 1901. Christopher Lee skilfully weaves his text with accounts from contemporary chronicles and diaries, and extracts from Winston Churchill's A History of the English-Speaking Peoples to describe the fascinating history of these islands. The story tells of wars, bloodshed, murder and revenge; of how people lived, what it cost them to live and how they died. It describes the evolution of Britain's great institutions and the powers of her monarchs, charts the establishment of her political parties and the development of her economy. 616pp. Index.

Über diesen Titel


Christopher Lee’s seminal history series, which accompanied the award winning BBC radio series, narrates the rich and gripping story of Britain, from the Roman Invasion in 55 BC to the dawn of the 21st century. It focuses on the significant events and personalities that shaped Britain for over nearly 2000 years, tracing its emergence from the Dark Ages which followed the Romans' departure, through the great flowering of culture in medieval times and the gradual evolution of the modern state, to the making of an empire and the huge changes brought about by the industrial revolution.

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
