History on the Net

The History on the Net website began life in November 2000. From small beginnings, the site has grown considerably. Despite the growth of the History on the Net our aims remain the same: to provide historical information that is easy for both children and adults to navigate, is written in accessible language, is illustrated wherever possible and makes learning fun. The site design has changed over the years in order to incorporate more information and to improve navigation.
