It might be difficult to believe when watching the news but the world we live in is often shaped not by the whim of governments and the decisions of world leaders but by tiny, apparently trivial events. In many cases, they can have enormous repercussions that mould both the society we live in today and the people we are.
From the innocent wrong turn by a chauffeur driving Archduke Ferdinand in June 1914 that led to World War I, to the Saxon leader, Byrhtnoth's act of chivalry in 991 that paved the way for British comedy as we know it today, this brilliant new addition to Dixe Will's bestselling books Tiny Churches, Tiny Islands and Tiny StationsÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÂ¢ÃƒÆ’Â¢ÃƒÂ¢â€šÂ¬Ã…Â¡Ãƒâ€šÂ¬ÃƒÆ’â‚¬Â¦Ãƒâ€šÂ¡Â looks behind the scenes of wars, politics, the arts, food, science, and even health and safety.
Perfect for history buffs and pub-quiz fans, this brilliant book also serves to make us all more aware that in an age of so many dramatic changes, challenges and unknowns, it is not always what makes the headlines that shapes the future for generations to come.
