Globe Trekker

Globe Trekker Special: World History-England

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Justine Shapiro starts her historical journey dodging swords in a re-enactment of the Battle of Hastings, then travels up the coast to visit the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. Passing through London, she takes a canal ride up to the Yorkshire Moors where she boards a double-decker bus/hotel. The next stop is Whitby, the eerie coastal town that inspired Bram Stoker to write "Dracula." Justine strolls along Hadrian's Wall, has a chance meeting with a centurion and rides a steam train before visiting Liverpool, home of The Beatles. Venturing south into England's West Country, Justine meets the very eccentric Marquess of Bath and joins a pagan celebration in Glastonbury before ending her journey in Ottery St. Mary, where the locals run through the narrow streets with huge, flaming tar barrels to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night.
