England is gorgeous.
To the locals, it sometimes doesn't seem that special. What's the big to do, they might occasionally wonder, about a bunch of hills with sheep or streets made of ancient rocks? But to those of us visiting from the rest of the world, it can be a magical, transportive place, steeped in a rich history that stretches back thousands of years farther than many contemporary civilizations.
England is one of the greatest centers of power that has shaped our world, for good and, sometimes, ill. Accordingly, it is dappled with secret wonders that relate to the history of our world today.
You may be familiar with the Parliament building in London, Big Ben, or the recreation of Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, all of which grace the banks of the famous River Thames, but the country is also home to a rich treasure trove of forgotten wonders, for those who wish to dig a little deeper.
