Britain has been fought over for over two thousand years: from the Roman invasion to World War II. Today, re-enactors are exploring all aspects of our past, recreating every period in our military history from the Jacobite risings to the Norman conquest, from the glory days of Queen Victoria's redcoats to the ancient Celts. 'Living history' reveals what it was like for ordinary people, soldiers and civilians, caught up in the events that shaped our present.
