BRITAIN
The British Isles have a rich history going back thousands of years. Unfortunately few of us in Britain really know much about our history. Retrospectively I think there must have been something radically flawed with history as it is taught in out schools as our history is fascinating.
Prehistoric Britain

is the most famous monument of the ancient Britain
ROMAN BRITAIN

Saxon Britain
The Anglo
-
Saxons destroyed virtually all traces of Roman civilisation in Britain. They established a number of kingdoms which were often at war with each other, and the Celtic Britons were driven into ‘Wales’, ‘the land of foreigners’. The Anglo
-
Saxon pagan religion replaced Christianity. Pope Gregory the Great re
-
established the Christian Church in England by sending from Rome a monk, Augustine, who converted the Anglo

Saxon King Ethelbert of Kent in 597. T

The Tudor Era: 15th & 16th Centuries
With the end of the Wars of the Roses and the accession of Henry VII (1485
-
1509), England entered a period of renaissance under the new dynasty of the Tudors.
The Stuart Era: 17th Century
Though the Tudor dynasty was a turbulent one, the reign of the Stuart kings was to be one of the most dramatic and divisive in British history. Georgian Britain: 18th & 19th Centuries
Throughout the early Georgian era, undercurrents of Jacobitism still existed calling for the reinstatement of the heirs of James II and the
Stuart line as opposed to the Hanoverians. This undercurrent ran into open rebellion in Scotland, in 1715 and more prominently in 1745, when ‘Bonnie Prince Charlie ' led his Highlander army as far south as Derby. However it was to end in tragic fashion at the Battle of Culloden, where the outmanned and outgunned highlanders where utterly defeated, and all injured and prisoners slaughtered by the Hanoverian army under the Duke of Cumberland. Defeat at Culloden sounded the death knell for Jacobitism and for the Highlander's way of life while Bonnie Prince Charlie fled back to France. Victorian Britain: 19th Century
The
Victorian
era
is
regarded
by
many
in
Britain
as
the
Golden
Age,
a
time
of
high
morals
and
conservative
values,
a
time
when
the
British
economy
boomed
through
trade
in
cotton,
tobacco,
coal
and
steel,
when
British
names,
like
Stephenson,
Watt
and
Faraday
where
behind
scientific
and
industrial
endeavours
and
Britannia
really
did
rule
the
waves
.
The
British
Empire,
proudly
proclaimed
as
the
‘Empire
where
the
sun
never
sets',
reached
around
the
globe
from
Canada
and
the
Caribbean,
to
parts
of
Africa,
India
and
South
East
Asia
to
Australia
and
New
Zealand
.
In
securing
this
empire,
Britain's
cathedrals
are
filled
with
monuments
to
the
soldiers,
officers
and
regiments
who
died
in
Wars
such
as
the
Crimean,
1854
-
6
and
the
Boer
1899
-
1902
.
The 20th Century
Elizabeth II
The
new
century
brought
an
auspicious
start
for
Britain,
a
new
monarch
Edward
VII
and
a
new
era
.
However
over
the
first
50
years
of
the
20
th
Century,
Britain's
Golden
Age
together
with
its
Empire
was
to
come
to
a
halt
and
the
country
was
to
face
some
of
the
toughest
challenges
in
its
history
.
Thank you
for your attention!
