British Library Launches New Virtual History Timeline

Posted by admin on Jan 28, 2010

New interactive history timeline developed by British Library allows students and teachers to explore collection items chronologically for the first time:

Developed by the Library’s Learning team with historians and writers, the timeline includes some of the Library’s key collection items from medieval times to the present day such as records of political events, glimpses of everyday life and writings and speeches from some our best known historical and literary figures. Scanning through centuries of images, audio-visual and printed material, users will be able to explore various themed timelines: ‘everyday life’, ‘music and literature’ and ‘politics, power and rebellion’ on one screen.
