60 Timelines of British History to explore

'Time is an illusion', so said Albert Einstein. Present, past and future are not absolute; rather, they depend on the reference point of the observer. We have built our timelines so that you can view an event from a number of different reference points. Look at an event thematically or from the context of the period, where does it sit alongside other events? Time travel a century look at the event in terms of its past and its future.

We have created a number of British history timelines for you to explore. They are based around our chosen Themes, Periods of British history and each century. We have also built some timelines for specific major events such as Magna Carta and the War of the Roses.

We are adding links and narrative daily so please stop by again.
