In The English and Their History, Robert Tombs gives an almost unprecedented insight into the history of our nation, and the way that it has affected our ideas about ourselves as a nation. His accessible language, touches of dry (very English!) humour and scholarly research has made the book an instant classic, and we are delighted to welcome Robert to Ely to celebrate its publication. We are really looking forward to hearing from him about the ways in which our world has been shaped by the events of the past, and (perhaps) learning a little bit more about ourselves in the process…
