E it should be.

B is wrong because beginning seems to modify England which indicates England was beginning in 1978.

A is also wrong and seems to indicate the same thing as B.

C messy and imprecise.

D indicates a hundred years is a period beginning in 1788.

E is correct and says Over a period of a hundred years beginning in 1788 an event happened and lasted for 100 years.
