Think the British Empire is ancient history? Think again. It's time to tell you an unbelievable story. One that spans more than 400 years and influences the world as you know it.

Instead of endless lists of Kings and Queens, battles and dates, this book introduces you to some of the hottest topics, ideas and experiences of real people. You will discover the forces behind the biggest empire of all time and you'll answer some BIG questions. Like what does it MEAN to be British? What do people BELIEVE in? What makes us the country we are and WHY? Big questions, so how do we find the answers? Let's start by hearing from real children all over the world; children who may have lived at different times, had different experiences, skin colours and religions BUT they have one thing in common (and so do you!) - the BRITISH EMPIRE.

Discover how the British Empire impacted countries and communities across the world and, most importantly, discover its impact on children like you! Be a part of writing our future history, and unearth the most incredible story of all - your own!
