Synopsis

A History of Britain in 12... Bites of Food by Paul Rockett

Food is part of a country's identity. It can provide a sense of place, history and identity. This book highlights foods that have been part of people's lives in Britain since prehistoric times until today. These may be meals that were popular at the time, telling us how people lived, or they may be meals that are significant to a particular moment in history. Some of the foods may still be familiar today; some may make you feel hungry, some may make you feel glad that they're part of history and not part of your lunch!The book is part of 'A history of Britain in 12 ...', a series which examines 12 items that are key to British history from the Stone Age to present day. The series helps students understand chronology and the idea of continuity and change. By focusing on different objects, it also encourages the reader to understand how our knowledge of the past is constructed from a range of sources and to gain knowledge of the methods of historical enquiry.

About the Author

Since landing on planet Earth, Paul Rockett has spent much of his time reading up on the adventures of human life, while also experiencing a few of his own. In his quest to find out more about his chosen home planet, Paul has travelled, doodled, eaten a lot of food, plundered dusty libraries and gazed out of windows. Having gathered together a vast amount of fascinating data, it is now his mission to present as much as he can in interesting ways, so that any passing Martian can see how brilliant life is on Earth.
