Robert Winder will attempt to define England and the English by spinning a fascinating tale of a land that is built on a lucky set of natural ingredients: its landscape and natural resources, its sea and its weather, its crops and, intriguingly, its sheep. He will also reveal why the extermination of the last wolf in 1290 was fundamental to the development of England’s national identity.
