Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Historica shows the evolution of people's lives over the last thousand years, and shows how dramatically the world has changed. In the year 1000 most people lived in rural areas; cities were small and grew around cathedrals or fortresses or castles; transportation was by horse and cart; breakfast for most people was a small meal of bread and cheese at sunrise; most people were illiterate; education was usually only for wealthy boys and was conducted by the church and personal freedom was very limited; people's roles in life were strictly limited by their place in society. Today the world is a very different place.
