It began with the horse-drawn carriage and ended with the aeroplane, an era, beginning in the 1830s and ending with the death of Queen Victoria in 1901, that saw the British Empire the largest the world had seen dominate the world.
British ingenuity in the fields of technological development and the heavy industry of its Industrial Revolution led to Britain being dubbed ‘the workshop of the world’ while its Royal Navy policed the world’s oceans helping to create what has become known as a ‘Pax Britannica’. A Short History of the Victorian Era details the sweeping social and economic changes that took place during this period but also examines the events of the time and the lives of the eminent Victorians who contributed so much to British success – men and women such as Florence Nightingale, Isombard Kingdom Brunel, Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and Charles Darwin.
