    Question History

    May I have some answers please.

    Let us travel back thru time to find out how, when and where it started.

    Would travel back thru time be considered an idiom to mean history or go back to the past in this sentence?


    thank you.

    Travel Back thru time...means literally to go backwards in time...to look at the past. I don't think it would be concidered an idiom though.

    So if we travel back thru time to a world without computers or the internet we would realize how open and connected the world is now.

    Does that make sense?
    Let me know if you need more examples
