Imagine if you could witness the entire history of the Earth, from the Dinosaurs all the way up to modern technology. Well, one YouTuber decided to make it possible for us to do just that.
But we’re tackling history with a slightly different approach: LEGO!
YouTuber TD Bricks is back at it again with another awesome LEGO video. And this time, he’s showing us his take on history. Let’s get into it!
History Lesson in LEGO: Ancient Times
It starts with building the LEGO dinosaur. TD Bricks shows us a few different types of Dinosaurs, from the herbivore Triceratops to the ferocious T-Rex. He even builds a habitat with a lake, trees, and rocks.
Things take a turn when the Dinos go extinct. But then we’re back in business with LEGO cavemen. Here is where things really start to get interesting.
Around the time of the Egyptians, we get to see amazing structures like Pyramids and temples constructed out of LEGO pieces. Things like Hyrogliphs and a golden throne show us how the royals lived in ancient Egypt.
Next up, it’s on to ancient China, where TD Bricks shows us some fascinating aspects, such as Kung Fu, by building a LEGO Dojo.
As the video goes on, we keep getting a healthy dose of historical facts, all while seeing some of the most famed structures portrayed in LEGO form — things like Mayan pyramids, Indian temples, and ancient Roman architecture.
History Lesson in LEGO: Castles and Vikings
As we move out of the ancient time period, the Middle Ages have something really fun in store for us: Castles!
If you’ve ever played around with LEGO, you can imagine how fun it is to build a castle. And TD Bricks takes our expectations and smashes right through them. We get to see some truly impressive LEGO castle builds, all while witnessing history unfold.
Between knights, kings, and jesters, there are dozens of different people that populate castles, and LEGO has no shortage of interesting figures to let your imagination soar.
Around the same time period lived the Vikings. We get to see TD Bricks build Viking longboats and sail them across a LEGO sea.
Before too long, though, we’re whisked away to the Renaissance. We get to see some really interesting characters here, such as Christopher Columbus and Leonardi DaVinci.
Next up, it is on to the time of the Pirates. TD Bricks has gone above and beyond to find a vintage LEGO Pirate Ship set, to the tune of $300. We get to see it in all its glory and even watch a few pirates walk the plank.
The Wild West to the Modern Age History Lesson in LEGO
Before too long, we reach the times of the old west, full of cowboys and Indians. TD Bricks shows off some of the most desert-like LEGO environments, complete with an old bank, jailhouse, and saloon, and littered with cactuses.
The industrial revolution is up next, and we get to witness the birth of modern technology, factories, and automobiles. Everything from trains, typewriters, and lightbulbs is shown in full LEGO glory.
The World Wars are next, and LEGO has all the tools for the job: soldiers, airplanes, and even LEGO tanks. TD Bricks wastes no time in setting up a battle to show us just how intricate you can get. After building everything in immense detail, he blows everything up in a Lego inferno.
Finally, we reach the modern era. From cell phones to the internet, we get to see everything in LEGO form. But we’re not done yet. TD Bricks shows us some ideas for the future, like flying cars, teleportation, and even cloning.
