Back to Owlbut's History of England

The Timeline. Owlbut's Hoots. The Story.

This is it. The end of our history of England, except it isn't the end. We've travelled on an amazing 12,000 year journey. We have gone from small tribes of people who hunt and gather their food to vast cities and towns where food is readily available with an incredible choice. We have survived wars, battles, invasions, plagues, illnesses and fires. We have made it possible for the majority of people to live into a secure old age. And we have invented no end of things which make life safer, easier and more exciting. But is life better?

A brief video introduction although as we haven't reached the end of this 25 year period, there is no video yet but there is something else you might want.


In 2001, the estimated population of England (to the nearest ½million) was 49.5 million people.
