Anne Bonny and Mary Read, pirate queens of the Caribbean

Tipu Sultan, the Indian ruler who kept the British at bay

Olaudah Equiano, the former slave whose story shocked the world

Mary Wollstonecraft, the feminist who fought for women's rights

Ladies of Llangollen, the lovers who built paradise in a Welsh valley



With twelve epic tales from Britain's wildest century, this is a rapid journey through those who made history between 1714 and the 1830s. How did radical feminist Mary Wollstonecraft lead the first calls for women's rights? How did Olaudah Equiano buy his freedom from enslavement and then shock the world with his story? How did a woman collecting fossils discover the origin of life, a mechanic turn steam into power for the first time, and how did Britain make its way - peacefully and otherwise - in the rest of the world?
