A History of Britain Through Art
By Jillian Powell
This book discusses the history of Britain, from ancient settlements right up to our own times. Some of the pictures show momentous events such as the invasion of England by William the Conqueror or the Battle of Britain, which has shaped the history of the country. Other pictures reflect the life of a nation, such as the splendid architecture of a medieval cathedral, the Fire of London and travel in a Victorian omnibus. This approach provides an insight into the history of Britain as seen through the eyes of artists.
