Finding ways to help people see the connections and important events in the history of places is not always easy. Simple chronologies that tell you what happened in date order are not always easy to read. So in these pages we want to try and develop a more engaging and interactive way for people to come to understand the fascinating history of a small, but internationally significant, town in mid Wales.

The 'Timeline' below is for the Tower of London. We think it is an example of how a more interactive approach to exploring history could be presented, allowing people to follow the connections and find out about history for themselves. Assembling Newtown intends to produce something like this for Newtown.
