From an evocation of  the Battle of Clontarf which took place in a coastal village near Dublin on 23 April 1014 to an amateur chorus recorded in Greece 20 years ago, we offer you a unique travel through time.

A thorough selection of items from Europeana Sounds’ corpus highlights specific significant events and key persons, and illustrates the history of sounds as well as sounds in history. Each item is accompanied by an image and a description especially written by a specialist working for the custodian institution, the content provider, with specific reference to its origin, as well as a sound recording, when available.

Items are displayed on a timeline and on a map therefore, you can choose between a time trip or a geographical one. We hope you’ll enjoy the sound trip!



We’re excited to know what you think of this timeline! Let us know your thoughts and potentially your questions through the “comment” form below. Cheers!
