  • Description: Romans. Pagans. Twentieth Century pop icons. The cultural development of a nation is explored on this English experience, taking in London, Bath, Chester and Liverpool. It's Insider moments like… the calls of Chester's Town Crier echoing in the streets, as he shares the history of an age-old tradition. Showing you how to deliver a 'proclamation', he reconstructs the 15th century around you, with stories of a Crier's life in historic Britain. Travelling back in time, stories of Tudors give way to those of foreign conquerors – revealing how the Romans changed Britain as you visit the ruins they left behind. You could even take a walk of the ancient city walls to see where history left its mark.
