To get a sense of where the Victorians and World War Two fall in recorded history, we spent a lesson looking at chronology and our perceptions on the concept of time. We therefore created a to-scale timeline of recorded history on the school field (8,000BC - 2021/present day). On the timeline, we plotted key periods in history, discussing the length of their reign by looking at when they took control and when they finished. We were shocked at how recent events such as World War Two were in the grand scheme of history, and how much of the field was taken up by Ancient Egyptian reign in Egypt (nearly 7500 years!). Below is a picture of us showing the to-scale timeline.
