My favourite British person from the past is David Livingstone. He was a missionary,a doctor, an explorer and a famous discoverer.
This is his life timeline:
-David Livingstone was born in 1813 in Scotland.
-When he was a child, he studied in a school after working in a cotton mill* during 14 hours.
-In the mid 1830s, he studied at the University of Glasgow because he wanted to be a missionary and after that, he studied medicine in London.
-In 1840, he travelled to Africa and he started to explore this continent.
-In 1855, David Livingstone was the first European to see the Mosi-oa-Tunya waterfalls, which he renamed Victoria Falls.
-In 1866, Livingstone discovered the source** of the Nile River.During this journey, he was very ill- suffering cholera and he disappeared. Three years later, Henry Stanley found*** him.
-He never returned to England. He died of malaria in 1873 in Africa.
