Description
An entertaining romp through history in bite-size chunks. Hundreds of little-known facts, curious anecdotes and bizarre-but-true tales for an alternative, potted history of the countries of mainland Britain. Scottish History: did you know that an ancient Scots law says that the head of any dead whale found on the Scottish coast automatically becomes the property of the King and the tail the property of the Queen? Or that the Scots excel at elephant polo? Or that Scottish Highlanders were sometimes called ‘Irish’ by Lowlanders right up to the 19th century? All this and more!
