Timeline. Science & Technology. A visual History of Our world by Peter Goes. Pub. Gecko Press, 2020.

October 16, 2020

A non fiction large sized book like this is better than 20 web pages for the amount of information it has about inventions and technological change that has happened since the world began.

It starts with the Sone Age when early man learned how to use and make fire and start making tools. It moves to the copper age, the first metal that man utilised, the improvement in farming techniques and the growth of towns.

It then moves to the firat civilisations and the contribution each made to the evolution of technology including Mesopotamia, North and South America, the first Chinese, Egyptian, Greek and Romans. Then through the middle ages and every Century until the twentieth century when it moves in decades right up to today when it ends with the development of Artificial Intelligence.

Some of the inventions and inventors you will never have heard off with each dealt with by an appropriate drawing and 4-5 lines of text.

Totally fascinating and essential for school libraries and in the home. My granddaughters already have my copy and are pouring over it.
