Summary

St Helena is one of the most remote, and yet most famous, islands in the world-it was the final place of exile for Napoleon Bonaparte until his death in 1821. The island remains a place of mystery as a unique colonial survivor, with the island's inhabitants still dependent on the support of the British government.
