Subject of Fame

On Britain Unlimited you'll find museums dedicated to their memory, places they lived in or visited and examples of the works they achieved. You'll find lists of the books they wrote and the pictures they painted. In fact everything you need to know to get a flavour of the people that made Britain great. This site is dedicated to individual people so you will not find Kings and Queens here. There is a wealth of material elsewhere on the Internet to cover this subject, however visit the timeline if you want to relate a person to a particular reign. Follow the links in the left margin for further information about Great Britain itself and the organisations and companies that can help you.
