|Long Description||The great events of British history are part of our shared heritage and it is important that children know the facts behind the famous dates from a young age. In this series, Gillian Clements tells the stories of some of these events through a lively combination of text and illustration (including some speech bubbles, labelled maps etc). In this way she makes history child-friendly and accessible but still manages to incorporate, wherever possible, primary source material (such as eyewitness accounts and documentary evidence). THE BATTLE OF HASTINGS retells the defeat of Harold in 1066 and start of the Norman conquest. THE CORONATION OF QUEEN ELIZABETH II looks at the current Queen's coronation in 1952 and the excitement caused by the conquest of Everest at the same time. Each book has been thoroughly checked by a history educationalist for accuracy, language levels and appropriate content, and a timeline and glossary are included. These simple, gently-humorous stories give readers the information they need and encourage the development of a real sense of history and how it works.|

- Fixed a but fix that was effecting some users. When trying to upload a picture directly from the camera some people got an error. This should be fixed now and everyone should be able to take pictures and directly upload.
- Added some polish to the history list. Thumbnail images and expanded product descriptions are now visible for UPC, EAN, ISBN lookups.
- Other back end polish. Some improvements were made in various places to be more memory effecient. A couple routines that could run a little long have been moved to the background to keep the user interface moving quickly and prevent the app from exiting needlesly.
