Neil Oliver
The Story of the British Isles

Archaeologist and television presenter Neil Oliver is well placed to provide an intimate account of what makes the British Isles so special. In The Story of the British Isles in 100 Places, he takes us from a human story first traced from footprints in the sand, to the Roman and Viking invasions and settlements, religious and civil upheaval, industrial revolution and two world wars. Join Neil on a journey of windswept headlands, battlefields, ancient forests and magnificent cathedrals – each a destination where the spirit of place holds true.
