BBC History Magazine has launched a new book, 100 Places That Made Britain, a work that takes readers on an unforgettable journey through Britain's history.

The book was written by the magazine's editor, David Musgrove, who asked foremost British historians such as Dominic Sandbrook and Professor John Morrill, to nominate the sites they believe to be the most important in British history. David then travelled the length and breadth of the British Isles to gain a 'visitor's eye view' of each place for himself – from Swansea's White Rock Copper Works and the Tower of London, to Derry's City Walls and Stirling Castle.

We've published edited versions of some of the sites featured in the book on historyextra.com. Find out about the history behind the Dover War Tunnels; read more about the the White Rock Copper Works in Swansea or investigate Titanic’s Dock and Pump-house at Queen’s Island in Belfast.
