BEDDAL, Fiona, A History of Britain, A2 1200 headwords

Álvaro Conesa, 1° Bachillerato EFL

The book is about the History of Britain. It started with the Roman domination. Then there were many invasions (Vikings, etc), the last one was the Norman invasion. Centuries later Wales and Scotland joined England (and became the UK). In the 18th century, kings lost their power and Parliament controlled everything. Then the American colonies became independent. The book explains the industrial revolution, the British Empire, WWI, WWII and the cold war too.

It’s amazing how you can learn about the History of Britain so quickly. Lots of people will say that these books aren’t interesting, but I do think that they are a good way of learning another culture, history... I would recommend it to people who are learning English and are interested in the History of Britain.
