Audiobook Summary:The award-winning story of Britain, from the arrival of Julius Caesar in 55 BC to the death of Queen Victoria in 1901. Christopher Lee's history of Britain provides the definitive radio account of the events and personalities that have shaped our nation. From foreign invasions and war to economic crises and social revolution, this is a compelling journey through centuries of dramatic change. Volume 5 , covering the years 1660 to 1702, is about great change: the restoration of the monarchy, the Great Plague and the Great Fire in the nation's capital, and, following the immense unpopularity of James II's Catholicism, a ruler from a different country on the throne, William of Orange.
