9780752215327: In Search of British Heroes: A Companion to the Channel 4 Series Fact or Fiction

Examining legendary figures from history, In Search of British Heroes seeks to reveal the truth behind the myths surrounding the great characters of our past. Tony Robinson investigates renown heroes of British history, including Boudicca, Kind Harold, Robin Hood, and William Wallace (better known as Braveheart). Although all but one died a failure, each was seen as symbolizing something great during their lifetime. Tony Robinson journeys into history to trace the true story of some of the greatest Britons that ever lived, seeking to discovering who the real people were behind the myths that surround them, and ultimately how these myths have woven themselves into our nation's character and its perception of itself.
