The Story of the British Isles in 100 Places
“Everyone should have two copies – one for the car and one for the house to plan journeys. A reminder to think more about the places you pass and less about your route, because every British journey is through rich history.” (Edward Stourton)From much-loved historian Neil Oliver, comes this beautifully written, kaleidoscopic history of a place with a story like no other. The British Isles, this archipelago of islands, is to Neil Oliver the best place in the world. From north to south, east to west it cradles astonishing beauty.
