A list based history book,
This review is from: Villages of Britain: The Five Hundred Villages That Made the Countryside (Hardcover)
An enormous book - 650 odd pages have been dipping in to it for a quite a while before completion. Picks up on the 100 objects theme that seems to be more prevalent at the moment.
Did he pick the right 500 villages though. I felt that there were some missing, and some that probably should;t have been included, but that is only my opinion.
Worth reading none the less.
