This website traces the path of man through history via the greatest Inventions of all time and the biographies of their inventors.

Click on the link above and it will take you to the sitemap that provides some clues on the best way to navigate the site. You’ll discover:

*Timelines – See how people evolved from the invention of the printing press in 1450 to modern inventions like the DVD.

*Inventions – Learn about some of the greatest inventions that have improved the quality of life for people and discover why Greek philosopher Plato said, “Necessity is the mother of invention”.

*Inventors – Meet the great inventors who created tools and devices to improve the quality of life.

*Interactive – Try your hand at solving and playing the interactive puzzles and games. They require some of the specialized knowledge about inventors and inventions you’ll learn at the site.

You’ll also find links to all kinds of other websites that have resources about inventions and inventors to further learning.

I also HIGHLY RECOMMEND taking the virtual “Guided Tour” of the site, as it gives you a birds-eye-view of what you can learn here.
