This potted history of England from the Roman Britannicus to the UK of today is told by the lives of our rulers from 1066 in 101-word snippets, with a table of the dates of every reign.  The table is not intrinsically important but provides chronological “hat pegs”, onto which to hang the facts or legends of history.  A newly learnt or dimly remembered fact might be interesting, but its significance is enhanced when it is seen in its context.  The last half of the book is a selection of “hats”, facts and their dates from the Roman to the present times.
