Graham Clarke's History of England


Uncluttered by commonplace knowledge and well-worn facts this remarkable work offers a genuinely new account of some of the major events of the past.  It explains, for instance, why Stonehenge was never completed and the roof not put on; what terrified the Romans so much about the Haggis; why there are no references to real ale, cricket or Lady Godiva in the Domesday Book; who actually wrote the work of the six Shakespeare brothers; and what Christopher Wren's motives were for starting the Great Fire of London.


Collectors of Graham Clarke's work will marvel at his endless invention: students of history will never trust a fact again.
