Press Reviews

See Inside the History of Britain is a superb round-up of the history of our fair islands, stretching back as far as early Britain, through troubled medieval times right up to Britain at War. Each double-page spread is filled with flaps and sections to reveal and explore. You can look behind the scenes at a Tudor house, or discover what lurks in a medieval forest or castle.
