From pirate queens of the Caribbean to scumbag poets, Indian kings and badly behaved aristocrats - this is an introduction to the Georgian period as never before. 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?
