Mapping History: visualise what happened where when, why and what else occurred in the vicinity? The process of interactive mapping makes the association of place between people, events and dates immediately apparent and reveals patterns that would not otherwise emerge. You can with a simple point and click identify and explore clusters of connected points.
Intriguing History Maps are interactive and linked to concise historical connections providing resources and links,so you browse geographically as well as by Intriguing’s themes and timeline. You can Zoom-in and out to change your perspective and level of detail displayed, switching between the big picture and an exact and specific location.
Intriguing History brings together, mapped and in a single resource, a wide range of historical themes from the 17th to the 21st century. This creates a ‘rubik cube’ of history with a concentration and focus on making connections that help you gain new insights into your areas of historical interest. You can easily change your view and perspective, shifting seamless between themes, dates and locations, drilling-down to get more information as and when it suits you.
