I bought A History of Btitain Volume I years ago and very much liked it; so, recently I went to Abe Books and bought Vols II and III. I found the History Channel DVD collection at the library and it is wonderful--England, the womb of kings and other greats, and undoubtedly the seat of civilization: everything great in the world came from Britain (including the U. S.) with the possible exception of some art from Italy, and cultivars for California wine from France. The rest of the world just tagged along.

A review of Schama's "A History of Britain" worth reading: Prof. Justin Champion's "Seeing the past: Simon Schama’s A History of Britain and public history* " online at http://www.history.ac.uk/reviews/review/296
