2010 Newspaper Headlines
The year 2010 is best remembered for the global news of Prince William and Catherine Middleton’s engagement which was announced at Clarence House, London in November. Earlier in the year, the Christopher Nolan film Inception featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Joseph Gordon-Levitt made the 2010 newspaper headlines, and a premiere took place in London during the month of July. A shocking event that would certainly be featured in a 2010 newspaper would be the man-made environmental disaster in February of the year 2010, which involved copious amounts of oil being poured into the river Lambro in Northern Italy.
If you are interested in any of these events, or any events that are listed in our table below, then a newspaper published on the day that the news spread across the nation is by far the best way to learn.
