Interested in History? Keen to explore the past?
Based on the BAFTA award-winning TV series, Timelines.tv is a free, new and exciting on-line history resource.
“It offers a wealth of quality TV documentary, arranged on interactive historical timelines that put you in control of your journey through the past. Timelines.tv spans the centuries. It’s rich in detail, full of great stories and fascinating flavour. But more than that: it shows how those details ‘connect’.”
I love finding a new history resource, and with a keen interest in British history, I think this site is fantastic. Beginning with the Norman Conquest, 1066 and ending with the Death of Industry, 1984, Timelines.tv has a wide range of video material from the Medieval Manor, Magna Carta, the first parliaments, The Black Death, the Peasants’ Revolt of 1381, Shakespeare’s World, The East India Company, The Rights of Man, the Peterloo Massacre, The Tolpuddle Martyrs, The Dawn of Democracy, The Rise of Labour, A Golden Age 1900-1914 and more.
This is a history lovers’ treasure trove.
