Details

The great events of British history are part of our shared heritage and it is important that children know the facts behind the famous dates from a young age. In this series, Gillian Clements tells the stories of some of these events through a lively combination of text and illustration (including some speech bubbles, labelled maps etc). In this way she makes history child-friendly and accessible but still manages to incorporate, wherever possible, primary source material (such as eyewitness accounts and documentary evidence). THE BATTLE OF HASTINGS retells the defeat of Harold in 1066 and start of the Norman conquest. THE CORONATION OF QUEEN ELIZABETH II looks at the current Queen's coronation in 1952 and the excitement caused by the conquest of Everest at the same time. Each book has been thoroughly checked by a history educationalist for accuracy, language levels and appropriate content, and a timeline and glossary are included. These simple, gently-humorous stories give readers the information they need and encourage the development of a real sense of history and how it works.
