A major new history for young readers, this volume brings to life the people, places and events that make up the past of Ireland and Britain. Starting with the earliest settlers on these islands, The Young Oxford History of Britain and Ireland maps the social, economic, cultural, and technological developments of the ages up until the present day. We hear the stories of ordinary people and extraordinary rulers--the reformers and rebels, scientists, thinkers, and artists--who shaped the centuries and of the discoveries and inventions that changed their everyday lives.
With over 500 stunning illustrations, including maps, family trees, paintings, photographs, and timelines, as well as double-page feature spreads on important topics such as the printing press and the steam engine, The Young Oxford History of Britain and Ireland is an engrossing read, a visual feast, a valuable reference resource, and a lasting treasure-trove of information.
