British Library Launches New Virtual History Timeline

This interactive history timeline allows students and teachers to explore collection items from the British Library chronologically. Navigate through 800 years of diverse historical texts, from the medieval era to the present day.

View sources that allow us glimpses of everyday life, such as handbills, posters, letters and diaries; those that help us better understand political events, such as charters, speeches and campaign leaflets; or enjoy the writings of some of our best known historical and literary figures.
