England's Heritage by Derry Brabbs
England's rich, often turbulent history has left a powerful legacy in its buildings and monuments, pageantry and landscape. This imaginative exploration of our heritage shows how it can speak of major events and everyday life, gentle evolution and dramatic change. Drawing on famous as well as lesser-known locations, ENGLAND'S HERITAGE celebrates the key themes that have shaped England's fortunes - invasion and conquest, education and religious belief, travel and trade. From castles to cathedrals, battlefields to stately homes, England's past has shaped the country we inhabit today. Combining over 600 illustrations with the unique archives and authority of English Hertitage, this fascinating book brings the nation's history vividly to life.
