Take a trip through time and meet courageous Celts, rampaging Vikings and rebellious republicans. Historopedia looks at wars and disasters; introduces artists, explorers and leaders; and shows us castles, cottages and tenements.
You’ll discover how we lived, what we ate, what we wore and even what school was like! And it doesn’t neglect the imagination: here, too, are mythical figures and TV characters, alongside world-changing inventions borne from the minds of Irish scientists and explorers.
So, time travellers, are you ready to go on the adventure of a lifetime?
