What happened in my birth year? is a new website by Philipp Lenssen that tells you what events took place globally on a particular year, in an elegant manner.
Simply type in a year and watch as a reverse countdown from 2010
begins. The screen slowly dims to black as the number starts dropping

By seeing professionals in action practitioners can encourage learners
to think like historians themselves and hopefully it will excite
learners about history and archeology.
