In search of British heroes by Tony Robinson( Book )
6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 179 libraries worldwide
"Boudica, Macbeth, King Harold, William Wallace, better known as Braveheart, and Robin Hood come to us as a mixture of fact and fiction. They are larger-than-life. Their lives and sometimes tragic deaths symbolise something greater than themselves. From the Roman invasion to the Age of Chivarly, they mark milestones in British history and the British character." "Tony Robinson sets out on a journey across the country to retrace the stories of the real people behind these legends, to find out where they lived, loved and fought. In going behind the official story, he not only uncovers even more remarkable facts about some of the greatest Britons who ever lived, but also shows them to be truly local heroes: legends who lived on our doorsteps, who have left their mark not only in the annals but beneath our factories, fields and schools." "These heroes belong to a shared heritage and this is a shared journey. Maps and directions enable readers to make the quest with Tony as he burns away the mist of time to reveal the flesh-and-blood characters behind the ghosts that still haunt every corner of our country and culture."--Jacket

An old man is the only one who can convey the wonders of that bygone era, and the horrors of the plague that brought about its end. What future lies in store for the remnants of mankind can only be surmised, and the deadly virus, which kills in a matter of minutes, remains a terrifying prophecy of the perils of globalization and the damage humans wreak on their environment. -- Publisher description
