The Beautiful History charts the fascinating story of Britain through football club badges.

From Premier League giants to non-league sides, it features over 100 clubs, with each badge coming alive to reveal the story behind it, whilst also giving events in history an exciting and engaging twist, as it takes you on a footballing journey from the dinosaurs to the digital age.

What does Colchester United's eagle tell us about Roman Britain?

Why do the badges of three football clubs feature the Mayflower, the ship on which the Pilgrim Fathers set sail for the New World? Why does the Norwich City canary celebrate 16th-century refugees, and which team honours the Battle of Britain and why?

The Beautiful History holds all the answers and links football to key dates like 1066 and 1588, with tales that are often surprising, quirky or laugh-out-loud funny.

An engaging, informative and fun book for fans of all ages, it includes activities, places to visit, a football timeline and quiz.
