The History of the World at your Fingertips


Explore the decisions, actions, and events that shaped

The story of today is written in the decisions of yesterday

The history of our remarkable world is written in the sometimes small and seemingly innocuous decisions made by individuals in the pursuit of their goals.

Explore these decisions and how they created a dramatic shift in the fortunes of the society that trailed in their wake.
