Each of these 101 strange and curious objects from British history has an extraordinary story to tell. Many royal possessions are inside, including the shirt of that Charles I was wearing when he was executed and Queen Victoria's dancing shoes, along with curiosities such as Darwin's walking stick, the last letter that Dickens ever wrote, the handwritten report (by the captain of the Carpathia) on the rescue of the Titanic's survivors and Emily Wilding Davidson's return ticket to Epsom.

Each offers a fascinating snapshot of Britain's amazing history.
