Before the 1400s, the 'Known World' was limited to Europe, parts of Africa, and parts of Asia. Most people believed the world was smaller, and flatter, than it actually is. Most sea travel was limited to the coasts, for many that ventured farther did not return. Transportation over land was often dangerous and tedious, but despite that, explorers of the Middle Ages, like Marco Polo, made their way into Asia and opened trade routes. Other boundaries were blocked by Muslim territory or open ocean. Despite this, the Black Death in the 13th century limited trade and travel, and decimated the European population.
Everyone at SBT wants to bring out your creativity, improve your visual communication, and hear your story! Some people prefer our timeline layout to show ordered events with dates and descriptions, focusing on the visual aspect of the sequence of events or steps in a process.
A timeline is a type of graphic organizer that shows specific events in sequence, usually with dates, in a linear fashion. Timelines are particularly useful for studying or reviewing history, because the timeline will visually display major events over a period of time. Storyboard That adds another dimension beyond dates and descriptions, by making it easy to illustrate important events!
