Dominic Selwood - Anatomy of a Nation - A History of British Identity in 50 Documents

In a fresh and incisive take on British identity, historian and barrister Dominic Selwood explores over 950,000 years of British history by examining fifty documents that tell the story of what makes Britain unique, vividly blended with the human stories behind them. From Anglo-Saxon poetry, medieval folk music and the first Valentine’s Day letter to the origin of computer code, Hitler’s kill list of prominent Britons, the Sex Pistols’ graphic art and the Brexit referendum ballot paper, Anatomy of a Nation reveals a Britain we have never seen before.
