1066 and all that … A Guide for Time-Travellers

The Passage of Time

For lovers of history and especially for those of us who thought that History must really be awfully interesting, but could not understand why:

The Time Travellers’ Guides at the UK TV Channel 4 website are there to explain it in language we can all understand. So for example, if you go to Medieval Britain and click on the timeline, you can read all about what actually happened in 1066, plus explore the words they used, the customs, the Arts and find out about the Movers and Shakers (important / influential people) of the time.

Watch the Great Fire of London spread – Learn about the Plague – and other fun stuff they never taught you in school or was it that you weren’t there that day?

To finish with, a quick guide to the main places of interest, courtesy of Google Earth!
