A History of Britain in 12 Maps


Formats & editions


An exploration of British history and identity through the examination of 12 critical maps.

A fascinating analysis of a dozen maps from critical points in British history over the last two thousand years, from the Celtic period when 'Britain' was just a patchwork of tribal kingdoms, to a century ago when the whole of Ireland, India, Australia, much of Africa, Asia and the Americas were marked as British.

Charting the assembling and disassembling of regions under British rule, this book features maps that teach us about the political, cultural evolution of the nation, and much of our past that we often forget. With current borders being disputed and, with them, identities challenged, this book will provide a reassuring insight into how our country's borders have always been, and always will be, in a state of flux.
