The Penguin atlas of British & Irish history
Drawing on the latest findings of historians and archaeologists, and illustrated throughout with superbly detailed maps and photographs, this comprehensive guide follows the story of the British Isles from prehistoric times to the present day. The full-color maps are enhanced by the narrative, which examines topics such as the spread of literacy, the roots of organized sport, and the advance of the twentieth-century suburb. Scholarly yet accessible, exploring major events, everyday life, and new historical themes, this volume is set to become the definitive introduction to British and Irish history.
