Trea­sures of Bri­tish His­tory The Na­tion’s Story Told Through Its 50 Most Im­por­tant Doc­u­ments This is a spirited ex­am­i­na­tion of our na­tion’s his­tory told through 50 key doc­u­ments, by two of our most cel­e­brated his­to­ri­ans. Peter and Dan Snow are the per­fect guides to ap­pre­ci­at­ing the sig­nif­i­cance of each one, with a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence be­tween them on po­lit­i­cal and mil­i­tary his­tory and to­day’s cur­rent af­fairs. From the Magna Carta to the bal­lot for the Scot­tish Ref­er­en­dum, via Guy Fawkes’ con­fes­sion, a map of the Bat­tle of Blen­heim, the 1910 de­sign for the FA Cup, and the In­stru­ment of Ab­di­ca­tion of Ed­ward VIII, Peter and Dan Snow’s per­sonal se­lec­tion brings a fas­ci­nat­ing insight into piv­otal events in Bri­tain’s his­tory (192pp, hard­back).
