What are the places associated with what we've made, where we buy and sell, or where we connect with the rest of the world? We think everybody should know about the places that have witnessed England's most important historic events. Tell us about a place you think needs to be in our list of 100 Places.

Our expert judge for this category, historian and journalist Tristram Hunt, will be choosing his top ten from your nominations. Watch this space or subscribe to our podcast (by searching for '100 Places' on your podcast player) to find out his choices.
