History in Pictures, Part I

Slide 2

History is about what happened a long, long time ago. A long time ago, things looked different. Here is how some things looked.

Slide 3

There were no cars.

Slide 4

Some people rode horses.

Slide 6

Sometimes horses pulled carriages,

Slide 8

and sometimes horses pulled wagons, or carts.

Slide 11

Many poor farmers, called peasants, just walked.

Slide 13

Many streets were muddy.

Slide 15

Most people did not live in cities.

Slide 17

Instead, they lived in the country, and worked on farms.

Slide 19

Peasants were very poor, and their houses were not fancy.

Slide 21

But there were rich people, called kings,

Slide 23

princes and princesses,

Slide 25

and aristocrats,

Slide 27

who lived in huge, fancy castles

Slide 29

and palaces.

Slide 31

Kings and queens were the richest people

Slide 33

in their country, called a kingdom. They ruled. That means they could tell everybody what to do.

Slide 35

Kings wanted to make their kingdoms bigger and bigger. They wanted more and more land.

Slide 37

So kings fought each other! Kings got armies of men together

Slide 39

and armies fought big fights, called battles!

Slide 41

There were no guns.

Slide 42

So the soldiers in armies fought with swords

Slide 44

and archers used bows and arrows,

Slide 46

and other deadly weapons. “Deadly” means people died.

Slide 48

After a king won many battles,

Slide 50

sometimes, he combined many kingdoms—and made an empire.

Slide 52

The End
