Synopsis

A History of Britain Through Art by Jillian Powell

This book discusses the history of Britain, from ancient settlements right up to our own times. Some of the pictures show momentous events such as the invasion of England by William the Conqueror or the Battle of Britain, which has shaped the history of the country. Other pictures reflect the life of a nation, such as the splendid architecture of a medieval cathedral, the Fire of London and travel in a Victorian omnibus. This approach provides an insight into the history of Britain as seen through the eyes of artists.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
