LANDMARKS OF BRITAIN is the history of the nation, told through the places where it happened. Each if the 'landmarks' that Clive Aslet describes tells the sweeping panorama of history, encompassing battlefields, cathedrals and palaces, of course, but also places linked with great events in the worlds of science, literature, architecture, religion, espionage, sport, agriculture and industry. The splitting of the atom; where the Enigma code was cracked and the four-minute-mile smashed; the landing places of Julius Caesar and the rats that brought the Black Death; the invention of photography, television and radar, as well as the birth and resting places of princes, poets and plutocrats -- you can wander through all these moments in the history of Britain, and see the ways they have changed the country we live in now. With LANDMARKS OF BRITAIN at your side and Clive Aslet as your guide you can visit these very sites and many more the length and breadth of the nation. Take a walk through British history -- you live near somewhere extraordinary and you don't even know it.
