This review is from: Great Tales From English History: Cheddar Man to DNA: A Treasury of True Stories of the Extraordinary People Who Made Britain Great (Paperback)
This an excellent book. Full of stories of incidents in English history from 7000 BC to discovering DNA in 1953. Each story is about three to five pages and yet in every case is surprisingly informative. They are easy to read, as well. I don't know of any other book that I can compare with this and that makes it all the more valuable.
This is an ideal bedside book which you can dip into at will to read a single story or half-a-dozen if you can't get off to sleep. The stories are arranged chronologically and if you remember everything in this book, you will have a considerable general knowledge of English history over nearly ten thousand years. Great value too.
