The penultimate volume of Peter Ackroyd’s History of England series, Dominion begins in 1815 and ends with the death of Queen Victoria in January 1901. This era saw the modernisation of the political system, the abolition of slavery, the spread of secularism, a tremendous flowering of literature and huge technological progress. The working classes though were still subjected to poor housing, long working hours and dire poverty. Ackroyd gives a richly populated and vividly told account.
