More > history books or novels. It is about the Scottish, the Welsh and the Irish who have their own cultural differences, but who share a history – a common descent, language and value system. We are linked together by choice as the British, but how many of us know how the link came about, or how we arrived at what we are? It used to seem natural to be proud of our heritage, but we have recently become uncomfortable about it, apologising for who we are and ignoring how much we have achieved that is good. We are a nation whose system of government and way of life is envied and copied by much of the world, but we are sometimes told that nationalism equals racism and pride in our Britishness is bad. Why should that be?< Less

It chronicles the lives of the... More > kings of the Britons in a chronological narrative spanning a time of two thousand years, beginning with the Trojans founding the British nation and continuing until the Anglo-Saxons assumed control of much of Britain around the 7th century.
