    Well off subject but an interesting thought!

    Hi all

    Whilst listening to earnest piece on Radio $ earlier in the week some expert(clown imho) referred to pre history now I am don't profess to be clever but was taught in the 50's/60's that history referred to all that had gone before - anyone out there can enlighten me please!

    Hi:

     

    Yeah prehistory is basicly events that happened before the historic record began. For example we know that the earth was formed somehow (creation/big bang) but nobody was there to document it. Hence, this event happened in prehistory.

    World War II happened between 1938/9-1945 this is documented so it is a historic fact.

    To be honest I think it is Internet Explorer effect. I don't have half as many problems when using Firefox. However the IT department refuse to use it at work for some reason.
