Publisher Description

Royally confused about kings and queens? Never sure what happened when? Or where — England, Scotland, Ireland, or Wales? Learn the people and events that shaped British history 

British History For Dummies, 3rd Edition is full of rip-roaring stories of power-mad kings, executions, invasions, high treason, global empire building, and forbidden love — not bad for a nation of stiff upper lips. Engaged travelers, lifelong learners, history buffs, and students will all enjoy this friendly and accessible guide written in, well, plain English. This book is for you if you studied British History in school (perhaps a while ago) or learned only a bit about Wales or Scotland or Ireland and want to know more. And if you’ve ever asked yourself, “What kingdoms are part of the United Kingdom?” or “Exactly how was the UK formed?” or “Which people make up the UK?” — you’ve come to the right place, to get those answers and so much more.  

With an 8-page color insert so you can see who, what, and where the ensuing historical action takes place, you’ll learn about the following people and events (and more): 

What led to the Roman invasion and about the Britons who resisted it 

How Britain was divided into Saxon and Celtic kingdoms
