Our Island Story A History of Britain for Boys and Girls from the Romans to Queen Victoria by Henrietta Elizabeth MarshallFirst published in 1905, this beautifully written narrative sets out the history of Britain in chronological order from the Romans to the death of Queen Victoria. Written specifically for children, this centenary edition with its short chapters, simple words, enthralling character descriptions and magnificent paintings from the Palace of Westminster, presents history as a series of vivid stories that will capture the imaginations of adults and children alike.
'Our Island Story must rank as one of the most influential works of history of the 20th century.'
-Time Out. Our Island Story is... cutting edge. With its brave mix of truth and myth, it is impeccably postmodern. - The Economist
