This is an atlas of British history, covering the history of these islands from prehistoric times to the present day. It has been compiled by a team of leading academic historians, with cartography based on recent findings and research. Instead of emphasizing English history at the expense of Welsh, Scottish and Irish history, this atlas places equal emphasis on each part of the British Isles and explores the ways in which each region has affected the others. The text is accompanied throughout by specially commissioned maps and hundreds of full-coloured photographs.
