I was interested in History when I was at school but found it quite confusing.
Firstly as I was living in Australia virtually all our history lessons covered mainly British history – the rest of the world was hardly mentioned.
Secondly, the lessons were constructed in a non chronological order. That meant having to remember dates rather than getting a big picture of what events evolved around the world.
I think, unless one gets an overall picture of events as they happened, it is difficult to make sense of any developmental outcome.
Therefore for those who are interested I am trying to gather information from various sources to paint a chronological picture of world events as they happened, starting at the beginning and working through to the current day.
