About the Author

Christopher Lloyd graduated with a double first in history from Cambridge in 1990 and went on to become the Technology Editor for The Sunday Times. He left in 2000 to become CEO of Immersive Education in Oxford before becoming an author in 2006. His best selling history of the world, called What on Earth Happened? (Bloomsbury 2008) is now in 15 languages and has sold more than 500,000 copies worldwide. He established his own publishing house What on Earth Publishing in Spring 2010 and has published a series of timelines in collaboration with illustrator Andy Forshaw covering history, nature, science, sport, Shakespeare and Magna Carta. Christopher is now in great demand as a lecturer and storyteller in schools, museums and at literary festivals throughout the UK and abroad. He divides his time between lecturing and writing.


This is history let out of its box. It simply sings to info-philes and visual learners alike. With parallel timelines for all continents, developments on land, sky and sea, more than a thousand illustrations, it is a superlative mastery of design and research, a treat to eye and brain alike. Why couldn't history lessons at school be like this? Our whole family were glued to it from the moment we opened the package:"Mummy look a dinosaur, an Egyptian, a rocket, a Roman, a Viking boat... Daddy look we came from monkeys..." my five-year-old squealed, having just discovered evolution! My husband has demanded we put it up on our stairs so he can read it each time he walks past, but I might have it beside my bed for the first couple of weeks so I can read its 7000 word essay on the back. Incredible, rich, contextual history education for all the family - a wonderful gift for your family, friends, local school or library, and a must for home educators. In my view, this is education as it should be. Lucy Pearce, Juno Magazine
