History[edit]

London under attack in the 26th century.[9]

18th and 19th-century[edit]

In the 18th and 19th-centuries, British colonies began to diverge from Britain itself, in one case leading to war.[10] At some point, the British constructed a training and refueling base on Diego Garcia due to the island's position near India, Pakistan, Hong Kong, and Africa.[11][12] During World War II, the British managed to crack a German code.[13]

22nd-century[edit]

In the 22nd-century, the Houses of Parliament were destroyed in an act of domestic terrorism.[4]

Status as of 26th-century[edit]

By the 26th-century, the island of Iona, was part of the North Atlantic Protectorate.[4] As well, the cities of London and Edinburgh were a part of the European Union.[11][12] During the Battle for Earth in the Human-Covenant War, London came under attack by Covenant forces.[9][14]

Following the Human-Covenant War, a collection of photographs by Jake Courage toured Britain.[2][3]
