Each contributed ideas which shaped our lands, languages and thoughts that are at the core of our identities to this day. This story is illustrated with 150 full-colour maps and plans that range across many topics, such as agricultural, political and industrial revolutions. The expansion of our islands' peoples across the oceans and the lasting legacy that movement left on the world and on our home islands. We show the fluctuating fortunes of the states we now identify ourselves by, from an Anglo-Scottish imperium to devolved power, independence and the often painful process by which the modern map of our islands evolved.The forces of history and religion divided the islands' peoples but our DNA unites us much more that most would realise – the islands have gone on to embrace new cultures that have come to seek refuge, opportunity and equalitry – this is a peoples' history.

Defending the islands has been a difficult task and they have been invaded by successive waves of Celts, Romans, Germanic tribes, Vikings, Normans. These conquerors, in turn, had to secure their lands against the next emerging enemy. So, archaeology shows that fortifications were common to all groups: Celtic hill forts, Roman camps and Hadrian's Wall; Saxon burhs; Norman castles; Henry VIII's device forts; Martello towers; and the 'stop' lines during the Second World War.The book provides the international contexts for a variety of defense policies over several hundred years and the text is reinforced by numerous maps.
