Some fairy tales may be 6000 years old! Linguists are currently tracing fairy tales and myths through language, and some may be 2500-6000 years old- maybe it’s time to dust off the old books!

This is a world history timeline that covers a lot of ground, and more events are being added! Spend some time perusing a different century when you have  a few minutes….

The past never leaves us!

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!
