Publisher Description:
These are the stories of Britain's past that children in England, Scotland and Wales used to grow up on. Often discredited, in many cases virtually forgotten, they are nonetheless wonderful tales that will give present-day children a sense of the excitement of history. King Canute, Lady Godiva, Guy Fawkes, Bonnie Prince Charlie, Grace Darling and other famous names live again in these 100 tragic, comic, stirring tales of adventure, folly and wickedness. Spanning nearly 3000 years, and including stories as up-to-date as Live Aid and the Braer Oil Tanker disaster, each story includes a note on what really happened, and there is an index and a list of further reading.
