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.
