The flora of the British Isles is varied and the fauna is similar to that of the north-
west of Europe.
The country is not very rich in mineral resources. Over three-quarters of Britains
land is used for farming; farms produce nearly half of the food that Britain needs. The
UK is a highly developed industrial country too, known as a producer and exporter of
machinery, electronics, ships, aircraft and navigation equipment.
The capital of the UK is London, in England. The capital of Wales is Cardiff, and he
Scottish capital is at Edinburgh; the capital of Northern Ireland is Belfast.
Britain has been many centuries in the making. The Romans conquered most part of
Britain, but were to subdue the independent tribes in the West and in the North.
Further waves of invaders followed: Angles, Saxons, Jutes, Vikings and Normans.
All these contributed to the mixture we call the English. For many centuries this country
was known simply as England.
It had a strong army and Navy. It waged numerous colonial wars. England, once the
workshop of the world, was the first to become a highly developed industrial country.
