LoveReading View on Chronologica The Incredible Years That Defined History

Written and compiled by the team behind Whitaker’s Almanack, Chronologica provides a eye-opening tour through over 2500 years of world history, starting in 753BC with the founding of Rome, and finishing in 1989 with the Tiananmen Square riots, the fall of the Berlin wall and Tim Berners-Lee’s invention of the World Wide Web. It picks out key years, and explains two or three important events that took place within those twelve months, combining politics, geography, art, music, science and sport. The information is presented succinctly and clearly, often accompanied by colour illustrations, and it’s great for dipping into, while also providing fascinating snapshots of human thought and activity through the centuries.

The What On Earth? Wallbook Timeline of History gives a more pictorial review of world history as it happened and is equally informative and inspiring.  ~ Andrea Reece

Chronologica The Incredible Years That Defined History Synopsis

Chronologica is a fascinating journey through time, from the foundation of Rome to the creation of the internet. Along the way are tales of kings and queens, hot air balloons, comets...and monkeys in space. Travel through 100 of the most incredible years in world history and learn why being a Roman Emperor wasn't always as good as it sounds, how the Hundred Years' War didn't actually last for 100 years and why Spencer Perceval holds a rather unfortunate record.

Chronologica is an informative and entertaining glimpse into history, beautifully illustrated and full of incredible facts. While Chronologica tells the stories of famous people in history such as Thomas Edison and Alexander the Great, this books also recounts the lives of lesser-known individuals including the explorer Mungo Park and sculptor Gutzon Borglum.

This historical compendium is certain to entertain readers young and old, and guaranteed to present even the biggest history buff with something new!

Whitaker's Almanack is one of the oldest annual reference books in the UK. Jam-packed full of facts and figures on topics including: Politics, Kings and Queens, World Geography, Art, Music, Science and Sport. The first edition was published on 10 December 1868 and was such a success that it had to be reprinted immediately!

Whitaker’s Almanack is mentioned in many famous works of literature, including Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Ian Fleming’s James Bond novel Moonraker. A copy of Whitaker’s is even used by Sherlock Holmes to decode a message in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Valley of Fear.
