A History of Britain, the Complete Collection
Volume IIDVD - 2002
Spotlights the epic themes and towering figures that transformed Great Britain from an island nation into a globe-spanning empire. These three episodes look at the growth of nationalistic feelings as Edward I attempted to extend his authority over Wales, Scotland and Ireland (circa 1216-1348), the great social transformation that arose after the Black Death decimated the British population (circa 1348-1500), and the story of how Henry VIII's demand for a divorce led to the ascendance of Protestantism (circa 1500-1558).
