British History Timeline
We unrolled a toilet paper roll to help us understand how long ago the Stone Age was.
If there are 200 sheets on the roll and that toilet roll represents 1,000,000 years, then each
sheet represents 5,000 years (1,000,000 ÷ 200 = 5,000).So, that first square of toilet paper roll represents everything that has happened in the past 5,000 years from today all the way back to the end of the Neolithic period!
That means, the WHOLE REST OF THE ROLL represents the Stone Age.
Any events you can think of in history (Romans, Ancient Egypt, World War I and II, Victorians etc) would all be on that one sheet of toilet roll!
