Explore the fight for freedom, from the Magna Carta to today, with this visually stunning timeline of key moments in civil rights! The 2-metre-long, fold-out timeline is uniquely broken out by date and world locations, with over 150 pictures and captions.

An easy-to-read chronicle, written in the form of nearly 40 newspaper articles, highlights historical actions such as the banning of slavery in Britain, women’s voting rights, and the end of Apartheid in South Africa. Other features include a fifty-question quiz and a copy of the Salisbury Cathedral Magna Carta document, emphasizing clauses around justice, freedom of cities, and no taxation without representation. Perfect for history buffs of any age!

Our Review Panel says...

This is an impressive fold-out book for children in KS2 to learn about the historical significance of the Magna Carta. As well as newspaper articles and quizzes, the book contained a 2 metre-long timeline that folds out to show the impact that the signing of the Magna Carta had on British political history from 1215 through to modern times.
