Sleep: We all want it, we all need it, and none of us fully understands it.
Since the beginning of recorded history, humanity has been fascinated by sleep. Sleep pervades our stories, our songs, and even our artwork, from the cave drawings of early man to the works of modern artists. Since the turn of the 20th century, we have been diligently studying sleep using the most cutting edge research and scientific methods imaginable. And yet, as with the depths of our oceans, we still don’t fully understand it.
At PlatformBedsOnline.com, we are fascinated by sleep – we love this stuff. So, we eagerly researched everything we could about the history of sleep. And what we found was that, while sleep history is very well recorded and plenty of data exists in literature all over the internet, very few people have tried to present the history of sleep in a visual way.
So, we organized our research, put it to a simple timeline that tracks some great moments in sleep history, science, and culture, and mixed it all together with some fun sleep facts and trivia that will help you impress your friends, or perhaps even take home some money from Jeopardy!
