Taking a stylish and original approach to chronicling the nation's history, Graham Stewart presents the documents which have left their mark on the life of Britain, from its days as a Roman province to the modern European nation-state. Constitutional and legal documents - among them, Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Arbroath - sit alongside the most influential of Britain's cultural products, such as the film script of Brief Encounter and James Bond's very first martini order.
