In Search of British Heroes

In Search of British Heroes

by TonyRobinson (Author)


This is the story of five legends of British history: Boudicca, Robin Hood, Macbeth, King Harold and William Wallace. All five of them can be said, by their lives and deaths, to have changed Britain for ever. Not because they were hugely successful (in fact, all but one died a failure) but because, even in their lifetimes, they were seen as symbolizing something greater than themselves. They lived during some of the most important periods of British history and at times of great change: the Roman occupation, the Saxon period at the time of the Viking raids and settlements, pre-Norman Britain and, finally, the high medieval age of chivalry, and the Scottish struggle for independence.
