Ever wonder what happened 100 years ago on your birthday? What about on Christmas Day in the year 800? Or Halloween in the distant past? You might be surprised by what you find out.

On This Day is a history book with a difference. Travel back in time and discover the weird and wonderful things that happened around the world on every day of the year, from January 1st to December 31st. From the first day of China's rule by the Han dynasty on February 28th, 202 BCE, to the introduction of Dolly the Sheep, the world's first cloned mammal, on July 5th, 1996, there is something incredible to learn on every page.

Unlike other day-by-day history books, On This Day is packed with historical photographs and quirky illustrations that visualize the events of the past. No matter what your interests, from arts to sports to science, you'll find them represented here in a diverse range of events that are collected together by the day they share.
