Featured Timeline: History of Pevensey

26th Aug 2014 | Tasha G

What should we do when a whole project is formed around making a timeline? Feature it, of course! This month we are delighted to feature the Pevensey timeline, which charts the English village's history from the Roman period to the modern day.

So why is this particular village interesting? It just happens to be where William the Conqueror landed in 1066 to start his conquest of England. However, there is archaeological evidence that the village's history starts long before with archaeological excavations showing activity from as early as the Bronze Age. What's more, Pevensey is the site of a fort initially built by the Romans in the late 3rd century AD which later became a medieval castle. Portions of the castle are still standing today.

The Pevensey timeline project is using Tiki-Toki as a tool for the village to research and share the village's history. It is also being used to teach some HTML coding. We think it's absolutely brilliant that Tiki-Toki can play some small role in bringing a community together and provide a platform to help learn a bit about coding.

And that doesn't even mention the timeline itself! The timeline uses the category bands view and equal spacing to organise the stories. The quality of content and the amount of research that has gone into the stories is fantastic as well. It's well worth exploring, especially if you have any interest in British history.

So go explore the timeline and find out a bit about the great project around it! As ever, if you know of a timeline that should be featured in future, get in touch with us at blog@tiki-toki.com.
