← Sixty Years of British Science Innovation

If you go back even further you have some biggies like: 1932 James Chadwick discovers the neutron 1897 J.J. Thomson discovered the electron then later the mass/charge ratio

A complete list of major discoveries would go on for pages and pages.

The nice thing about Britain is they don't obliterate all evidence of past glories. You can even touch Roman works. Where I live in western Canada there is only one structure over 100 years old, and it is alone.
