visual history

When we talk about time in a classroom, we often refer to a 40 minute class or the weekly schedule or the annual event of the school. History teachers are fortunate to engage their learners with data, evidence and records of few centuries & millenia before. Geographers & evolutionary biology teachers have the disciplinary advantage of pushing that boundary further to a much bigger timescale.


Here is a compilation to explain the key global events of the last 100 years to coincide with the centenary of World War One. This article is interspersed with a variety of graphics, timelines and data visualisations to explain the chain link of events that lead us to global politics as they are today.
