Bestselling author Christopher Winn explores Britain's royal past,
unearthing a rich legacy of castles and palaces, cathedrals and
country retreats, battlefields and monuments where kings and queens
lived and died. In this exploration of royal British history,
discover whose heart is buried near the Tower of London; which
palace was built on top of a mulberry garden; the world's oldest
and largest occupied castle and the first building in Britain to
have latrines. From the Palace of Scone to the Palace of
Westminster, from Pembroke Castle, the birthplace of Henry VII, to
Pontefract Castle, where Richard II starved to death, and from
banqueting halls to beheading sites, this gem of a book is
guaranteed to inform and amuse in equal measure.
