55 BC - 1087, Caesar to William the Conqueror

Audiobook

The award-winning story of Britain, from the arrival of Julius Caesar in 55BC to the death of Queen Victoria in 1901. 'Wonderful…This Sceptred Isle has provided one of the greatest treats for listeners in recent years.' Paul Donovan, Sunday Times.

Britain was at the egde of the known world when, under the Emperor Claudius, the Romans brought to the island of Britainnia a peaceful civilisation that was to last four hundred years. But when they left, their civilisation left with them and the centuries that followed are hence usually known as the Dark Ages.

But those centuries were full of drama and action; they saw the invasion of the people who would become the English - the Angles, Saxons, Danes, Norwegians and characters whose names have become legendary like Alfred the Great, Athelstan, Ethelred the Unready, Canute, Edward the Confessor, Harold and, eventually, William, Duke of Normandy - William the Conqueror.
