This is the first book to analyze the interplay of cultural memory, national identity and the changing media ecology of early eighteenth-century Britain. It examines the initial inscription of five pivotal episodes of English, Scottish and Irish history, revealing the mixture of memories and counter-memories in their subsequent mediations.
