The British History Timeline Wallbook Summary

The British History Timeline Wallbook by Christopher Lloyd

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!

About Christopher Lloyd

Bestselling author Christopher Lloyd began his career as a journalist with the Sunday Times newspaper. Then, while camping with his family, he had a critical realisation: even with a 1st class degree in history from Cambridge University and experience as a science writer, there was so much about the world he didn't know. So, he set out to write books that zoom out and tell the big stories, opening readers' eyes to how seemingly unrelated events fit together and showing them multiple perspectives on the world, all in highly engaging prose and matched with lively illustration and photography. Now, with several books in print, including the bestselling What on Earth Happened? and Absolutely Everything!, Chris divides his time between writing books and delivering lectures and workshops to schools, literary festivals, and a wide range of other venues around the world. He lives in Tonbridge, Kent, with his wife and two adorable terriers.

Andy Forshaw graduated in graphic design and illustration from London's Central Saint Martins college, and has worked on numerous online and publishing projects. Since 2010, Andy has created more than 5,000 illustrations for children's books. When not illustrating, Andy can be found exploring the countryside on his bike. He lives in London.
