    A History of Britain poses questions that have universal timeless resonance. What makes or breaks a nation? To whom do you give your allegiance and why? Where do the roots of your community lie - in your hearth and home, your village or city, your tribe, your faith? And, finally, what is Britain? Also, listen to A History of Britain, Volume 2.

    Dennis says: "Accessible to the lay-person."
    "HUGE Disappointment"
    Overall

    I bought this because it supposedly covered the very early history of GB, starting around 3000 BC. The period from the Battle of Hastings, 1066, to present day has been well covered. However, it seemed as though it took three sentences and a deep breath to get from 3000 BC to the mid-Roman period. What happened to Stone Hedge and its creators? Then a couple of more sentences to 1066. No mention of fact or myth Arthur, etc. Oh well! As noted to this point, vol. 1, it is a disappointment.
