"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    Google says:-
    Bronze Age Britain is an era of British history that spanned from c. 2500 until c. 800 BC. Lasting for approximately 1,700 years, it was preceded by the era of Neolithic Britain and was in turn followed by the period of Iron Age Britain.

    I still wonder if this Bronze age is specific to Britain history or we can use this term in general.

    I always wondered how they discovered they could make bronze! It would be so interesting to know the prcocess that led to the discovery.

    It also includes immigrants!?

    There are a lot of humans in London, says The Guardian: The city's population grew at twice the rate of the UK as a whole between 2011 and 2015 and could reach almost 10 million by the middle of the next decade.

    Figures released by the Office for National Statistics revealed that in mid-2011 London's population stood at 8.2 million and in over four years it has increased by 469,000 to just under 8.7 million.

    This is strange @Bubbly as I always thought London's population was around 11 million, with a million people coming into London each day from the surrounding area.

    I think it depends what geographical boundaries you use @mheredge.

    @Khalied - this explains the timeline(s) of the Bronze Age:-
