This is a fascinating tour of Britain, like accompanying Professor Allitt on his family travels of his home island, complete with personal anecdotes and pictures of him in the places he describes. I loved how he employed a dialect expert to give us the flavor of the unique accents of diverse regions of the island. I would love to see a course by Professor Allitt on the theme of the book Albion's Seed, which describes how small regions of Britain were the origin of the cultures in broad regions of the United States, including New England, the plantation South, the Appalachians, and Pennsylvania and the middle Atlantic states. He knows the regions of Britain as well as the history of America. The culture, character and language of American regions were transplanted out of small but distinct areas in Britain that were transplanted into British America. We can understand the American Civil War better when we see its roots in the clash of cultures in the era of Cromwell.
