Following our work on time lines last week, I thought some of you might like to show off your chronological and mathematical skills by making up a question or two about the different periods in history that we looked at. You can make it as easy or as difficult as you like! I’ll give you the key dates again to help:
Stone Age: 15,000BC to 2500BC Bronze Age: 3000BC to 800BC Iron Age: 800BC to AD43
Celts: 800BC to AD43 Romans: AD43 to AD410 Saxons: AD449 to AD1066
Vikings: AD793 to AD1066 Normans: AD1066 to AD1134 Middle Ages: 1154 to 1485
Tudors: 1485 to 1603 Civil War & Revolution: 1603 to 1714
Empire & Sea Power: 1714 to 1837 Victorians: 1837 to 1901 WWI: 1914 to 1918
WWII: 1939 to 1945
I’ll start you off with a couple of examples:
For how many years did the Saxon and Viking Ages overlap?
After the Bronze Age ended, how long was it before the Romans arrived?
