History of England - Britain (British History)
 

Thousands of years ago, the island of Great Britain was joined to Europe and was covered with ice. About 15,000 years ago, the weather became warmer. The ice melted and the sea level rose. Great Britain as we know it today became an island about 8000 years ago.

British history is long and rich going back thousands of years. Time after time between about 2,700 years ago and 950 years ago, attackers, settlers and raiders arrived in the British Isles. They found new kingdoms and bought with them new beliefs and technologies.

For our timeline we have divided the period of British history into ten main chunks to try and explain what was happening in England and Britain during the last six thousand years.
