England

Almost since history began, England had an important place on the world map. From Stonehenge to the Roman Empire, the Industrial Revolution to World War II, major events have left their mark on this small island with a big history. Most of the materials listed in this collection provide authoritative and focused information about the landmarks, the history, architecture and culture of the country and the Royal Family. As anticipation builds for the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, which is scheduled to occur on April 29 at Westminister Abbey, visitors can get their royal fix via a stream of news, pictures and videos at officialroyalwedding2011.org.
