                                <ul>
                  <li><b>1912</b>: Alan Mathison Turing born in Maida Vale, London, to Ethel Sara Turing (nee Stoney) and Julius Mathison Turing. </li>
                  <li><b>1918</b>: Alan joins St Michael's day school in Hastings, where he does not do very well. He is sent to Hazelhurst Preparatory School when he is ten where he does much better and learns to play chess.
                    <li><b>1926</b>: Alan becomes a pupil at Sherborne School in Dorset. Alan is not interested in their traditional classical education as he really wants to spend his time doing Science and Mathematics</li>
                    <li><b>1927</b>: Alan becomes deeply interested in the work of Albert Einstein and is able to develop work done by Einstein based on a questioning of Newton's Laws of Motion.</li>
                    <li><b>1930</b>: Alan enters 6th form at Sherborne and becomes great friends with Christopher Morcom, another talented boy who loves Maths and Science. While they are applying for university, Christopher suddenly dies. Alan is devastated.</li>
                    <li><b>1931</b>: Alan becomes an undergraduate at King's College, Cambridge to study Mathematics. He enjoys university and is highly successful. He graduates with distinction.</li>
                    <li><b>1935</b>: Alan's work is so distinguished that he is elected Fellow of King's College, aged only 23.</li>
                    <li><b>1938</b>: Alan goes to Princeton University in America to study mathematics and is awarded a PhD.</li>
                    <li><b>1939</b>: September - Alan is asked to join the Government Codes and Ciphers School and arrives at Bletchley Park the day after war is declared.</li>
                    <li><b>1942</b>: During 1942, Alan and his colleagues also manage to break the more complicated German Naval Enigma system. This is a tremendous help to the Allies in the Battle of the Atlantic.</li>
                    <li><b>1945</b>: At the end of the war, Alan Turing is awarded the OBE for his wartime services.</li>
                    <li><b>1946</b>: Alan joins the National Physical Laboratory, in Teddington and he publishes a paper with the first detailed design of a stored-program computer.</li>
                    <li><b>1948</b>: Alan's is appointed as as Reader in the Mathematics Department of Manchester University.</li>
                    <li><b>1949</b>: Alan is made deputy director of the Computing Laboratory at Manchester University.</li>
                    <li><b>1950</b>: Alan publishes'Computing Machinery and Intelligence' in which he develops the Turing Test, an attempt to define a standard for a machine to be called intelligent. The paper will become very famous.</li>
                    <li><b>1951</b>: During his year, Alan is elected Fellow of the Royal Society FRS and also gives a talk about Artificial Intelligence on the BBC radio's Third Programme.</li>
                    <li><b>1952</b>: January - Alan is arrested for gross indecency and loses his security clearance. He is offered chemical treatment as an alternative to imprisonment. The hormone treatment has a very detrimental effect on him.</li>
                    <li><b>1954</b>: June 8th - Alan's body is found in his home in Wilmslow, Cheshire. The post-mortem finds that his death had been caused by poisoning. A half-eaten apple is found next to him laced with cyanide. Turing's body is cremated at Woking crematorium.</li>
