Roman Britain

Anglo-Saxon England
(410 - 1065)
Consolidation of power into 7 or 8 kingdoms - the Heptarchy, conversion of 'Angle' land by missionaries sent by Pope Gregory, and Viking invasions make this a period of great change.

Medieval Britain

Reformation & Restoration

Covering the decline of royal absolutism, the triumph of Parliament, colonial expansion, and the Industrial Revolution.

Early 20th Century
