Word etymology {not boring!}

Ok, you might think word history is boring. Like the Romans made up bath tubs and Greeks eat chocolate, but no! In year 5 we have been getting the meaning of words at www.etymonline.com. An example of what we were doing is, when looking at the history of the word ‘ancient’ we found:

Ancient: late 14th Century, old French ‘very old.’

So now do you think it is boring?
