Product Description

Stretching from Ancient Rome to the World Wide Web and from the Danelaw to the Cold War, 366 Days is an engaging and entertaining chronicle of the highs and lows of world history. Whether it heralded a world-changing new discovery, the assassination of a leading politician, or a cow flying in an aeroplane, this collection of true stories and trivia from world history proves that there is always something to be remembered 'on this day'. Each historical account has been painstakingly researched to clearly explain its causes, course and consequences.

Scott Allsop studied history at the University of Cambridge and is the host of an iTunes Top-100 daily history podcast. He is an award-winning history teacher who was nominated for the UK's national Teaching Awards and short-listed for the BBC/Historical Association History Teacher of the Year award. He has drawn on over a decade’s worth of teaching experience in the UK, Egypt and Romania to compile this fascinating and accessible daily guide to some of the most compelling historical events that have shaped today’s world.

Reviews:

(Tom Rogers, Times Educational Supplement columnist)

- 'Allsop has a great eye for the interesting anecdotes of history. An exciting, informative and highly accessible insight into each event.'
(Russel Tarr, author of A History Toolbox)
