Back to Owlbut's History of England

Just twenty five years of history but filled with so much. There was a war to end all wars, which turned out to be badly named. This war, which later became known as the First World War, was fought mainly by soldiers in trenches in northern France and Belgium. There was fighting in some other places but it was mostly to the trenches that British soldiers were sent. Women gained the vote and undertook much of the work done by the men who had been sent to fight. The Edwardian Age came and went.

At the start of this period of history, the estimated population of England (to the nearest million) was 30 million or 7 million houses on our strange method, explained in the Mesolithic Age introduction.
