This review is from: The Usborne History of Britain (Usborne Internet-linked Reference) (Hardcover)
This is an excellent history book, the sort I wish I'd had 30 years ago. Not just dates and battles and important people, but information on how the ordinary people lived, what they wore, what work they did, how events affected them, the builings...... Lots of very innformative pictures. And lots of 'asides' on historical figures whom I'd heard of, but didn't know exactly why they were important, with just enough information on each for me to gauge whether to do further research. I've given copies of this book to three youngsters in the target age group and their parents have all reported back that their offspring loved the book.
