This set of 6 A3 deskmats features 12 significant people
from history, including from the twentieth century. Taking its inspiration from
the new history National Curriculum for Key Stage 1, the set allows comparisons
between two monarchs (Elizabeth I and Queen Victoria), two explorers
(Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong), two equal rights campaigners (Emily
Davison and Rosa Parks), two wartime nurses (Florence Nightingale and Edith
Cavell), two scientists (Isaac Newton and Tim Berners-Lee) and two politicians
(Oliver Cromwell and Nelson Mandela).
