Historical Fiction

These British historical fiction novels span from the earliest days of Britain to the fairly recent past. The only qualifying factor is that the book must have been set in a noticeably different, earlier time period than when it was actually written.

A book written in 1960 and set in 1960 would not qualify; a book written in 2020 and set in 1960 would.
