The British Empire

The British Empire

This site, which notes that it is not a "rigourous academic site," tries to bring to life the peoples, cultures, adventures and domination that made the British empire such a powerful institution. Its creator, a British teacher, explains that "it is neither an apology for, nor a nostalgic reminiscince of the institution that so dominated the world for over a century. Rather, it analyses and describes the vast institution that so influenced the shape of the world that we see today."
