Beginning with the Norman Invasion of 1066 and ending just before the start of the 1st World War, Stick a Flag In It explores one thousand years of British history in an inimitably hilarious style. Insane monarchs, intrepid explorers, swashbuckling pirates, spies in brothels, flying alchemists, Victorian coffee houses, and dildos all make their appearances in this sprawling epic. No matter what you may have learned in school about British history, you'll be sure to learn new tidbits from author Arran Lomas on this tour through the last millennium.
