Ever wanted to know when computers really started? Or who really discovered America? Would you be surprised to know that Marconi didn’t invent the radio? If you’re intrigued by these questions … this fact-filled book is for you!
Everything has an origin. This book if for people who want to know how, or when, things began, where they came from, why they started. And when it has a human origin, such as the Mongol Empire or Ferrari cars, the name of the person who started it.
Everyday items such as the clothes we wear, the food we eat, the films we watch, the medicines that cure us, the languages we use, all began somewhere (and the answers are often not what you expect).
This book celebrates the work of explorers, scientists and inventors … people who wanted to know how the world works and ended by discovering something no one had ever seen before.
• Ever wondered who the first Olympic Champion was?
• Did you know who invented the radio (and it wasn’t Marconi!)?

The answers are all in this fascinating fact-filled book
