England's rich, often turbulent history has left its powerful legacy in buildings, monuments, pageantry, and landscape. Nearly 600 illustrations capture the shifts of time, the influence of diverse cultures, and the impact of long-ago events on present-day language, settlements, terrain, and regional fortunes. Sift through the evidence left in battlefields, churches, bridges, and castles to understand how real people once lived. Imaginatively structured by theme rather than strict chronology, this absorbing account paints a compelling picture of England's past.

"England's rich, often turbulent history has left a powerful legacy in its buildings and monuments, pageantry and landscape. This new, imaginative exploration of our heritage shows how it can speak of major events and everyday life, gentle evolution and dramatic change. Drawing upon both famous and lesser-known locations, the book celebrates the key themes that have shaped England's fortunes - invasion and conquest, education and religious belief, travel and trade."--BOOK JACKET.
