English Plus British/Irish History Review,
This review is from: A History of Britain, Vol 1: At the Edge of the World: 3000BC-AD1603 (Hardcover)
Having not seen the TV series, I was able to take the book in at an advantage without any pre-conceptions. I found the book totally entertaining and accurate with its dating and early period assumptions. Eons were circumnavigated with the stoke of a pen, yet a week in Elizabethan times was almost as time as is the way with such vast scoping historical recantings.
