A new timeline has been published on A Bit About Britain, covering the 21st century – the story so far. Do feel free to suggest additions to this – particularly any cheerful milestone that springs to mind, because I can’t help thinking the timeline currently makes fairly depressing reading. If you believe you’ve spotted a mistake, which could embarrass either one of us, you may prefer to get in touch via the contact page rather than leaving a comment below.
A Bit About Britain’s timelines are among the most popular pages on the site – an invaluable source of trivia and essential facts for the amateur historian or student. They can be found, with startling common sense, under the history section of the website’s menu and begin, for some inexplicable reason, with Prehistoric Britain.
