Westminster's history

The BBC has an interesting report at describing how over the last thousand years Westminster became a political and ecclesiastical seat of power, first for England and then the UK.

It's a bit Janet and John as written, describing old medieval meeting places as social networking sites and other such nonsense, but there is some fascinating history in there - well worth a read.


Pre-order my new book, Tracing Your Irish Family History on the Internet, through Pen and Sword (30 April 2013), or purchase early at Who Do You Think You Are Live 2013 in London.
