Explore the history of Great Britain, from Stonehenge to the present day, in this amazing, over-sized timeline book that brings history to life! Created in association with the National Trust , the timeline is uniquely broken out by royal house, as well as by date, with over 1,000 pictures and captions. From the age of the dinosaur to the 2012 London Olympics, the two-metre-long timeline allows you to compare the political, scientific, religious and literary achievements of Brits at any given moment in time. An easy-to-read chronicle, written in the form of newspaper articles, highlights key moments in more detail, such as the battle of Hastings, the London Fire, and Queen Elizabeth II becoming the longest-reigning monarch in British history. Other features include a page of letters to the editor, a fifty-question quiz, and a pocket magnifier to make it easier to explore all the timeline's details. Perfect for 6-14 year olds, and history buffs of any age!
