imperial pomp

What is your favorite period of British history?

To study, my favourite is probably the early modern period. Between about 1500-1800 is really when you see the confluence of cultural, religious, political and military factors that explain a lot of britain’s strengths and weaknesses today.

Just for fun, Edwardian Britain. Imperial pomp and circumstance, cars, advertising, new technology; it’s quite exciting.
