In The Story of England Michael Wood tells the extraordinary story of one English community over fifteen centuries, from the moment that the Roman Emperor Honorius sent his famous letter advising the English to look to their own defences.
Historian Michael Wood tells the 2,000-year-old story of the settlement of Kibworth, Leicestershire, a community that survived the Black Death, the English Civil War, the Industrial Revolution and World War II.
Episodes cover Kibworth's first 1,000 years, the worst famine in European history, the dramatic events of Henry VIII's Protestant Reformation, and the battles of the English Civil War.
The story of Kibworth is the story of England itself and this is the peoples history of the nation.
