Samenvatting

Although in a way, history is being made every day, some stand out in the memory or learning more than others. These are the days that had the most impact on the people who witnessed them and the greatest consequences for society in the months and years to follow. These are the discoveries that opened up eyes to a wider world, the decisions and acts that steered people from one possible future to another, and the disasters that shocked people into working together for support and community. Man has always recorded history, from the creation of Alexandria, the Roman empire and the ancient classical world, to the calendar, and the first newspaper.
