A Geographical and Historical Journey Around the Coastline of Britain -- by Whatever Road Is Closest to the OceanBook - 2017
In the early summer of 2016, the author set out on a quest to discover his roots by driving around the whole coastline of Britain. What he found is a rich and beautiful land whose people have been shaped and influenced by the many invaders, who came either in force or in peace. Their diverse origins and the impact they made are still very evident in the Britain of today. Their influence is seen in language, accents and place names, but with the longest threads to the past being most notable in monarchy and religion. Ironically, the journey was during the time of the Brexit debate and vote, a significant event that will have a defining impact on Britain's future history.
