Learn the Story of Britain in a Shared Tour

04/12/2011
Take a shared tour around Great Britain, the leading industrial country and naval power of the 19th century, a country which played a major part in the emergence of parliamentary democracy and in progressing science and literature.

At its greatest, the British Empire covered more than one-fourth of the planet's surface. The power of England was seriously dwindled by the two world wars of the 20th century, and the empire was dismantled subsequently, allowing England to rebuild itself into a modern and successful European nation – as you can see in a shared tour. England persists in a global approach to foreign policy, for it's one of five permanent members of the UN Security Council, a founding member of NATO, and of the Commonwealth.

The Timeline of Britain

Neolithic, Bronze & Iron Ages:  8300 BCE – 42 CE

The British Island separated from the European mainland and formed the English Channel around 6500 BCE. Have your guide in the shared tour explain about the earliest settlers in England, hunter-gatherers who expended a great part of their lives nomadic and hunting for food. By 750 BCE Iron was brought to Britain and was used to manufacture more advanced and sturdy implements and weapons, as can be revealed in a shared tour. 

Romano Britain: 43 – 1065

In 43 CE the Roman army arrived in Britain and easily overcame any struggle from the local populace of England. The Romans founded Londinium (London) which you should visit on a shared tour and constructed military roads all over the Island. In the course of 10 years the Romans managed to gain control over most of England and Wales (through which you may take shared tour). The Romans continued to be present in Britain up to the 5th century, when the Britons were roughly left to look after themselves.

Anglo-Normans & Middle Ages: 1066 –1347

In 1066 the Duke William of Normandy conquered Britain, famously triumphing over King Harold of England, whom according to tales told by various guides in a shared tour, was pierced through the eye with an arrow amid the Battle of Hastings. William of Normandy carried on ruling England and Scotland (which should also be explored in a shared tour), drastically reorganizing the class system and adopting French as the formal language in Britain, and a guide in a shared tour can explain the implications of this change. Henry III was coroneted King of England in 1216 in St Peter's Abbey, Gloucester, which should be visited whilst on a shared tour; however, he was unfavorable throughout his reign.

Late Medieval: 1348 – 1484

The "Black Death", the bubonic plague, arrived in England in 1348 and killed almost a third of the populace by the end of 1350, rapidly sweeping Wales and Scotland.  The plague continued to appear in Britain up to the 17th century and to seriously influence the economic stability of England. The ruling class endeavored to reinstate economic balance by parliamentary legislation, in an effort to battle the overwhelming consequences of the plague in Britain, and your guide on the shared tour should elaborate on this point.
