Recent advances in image tube photography and other optical techniques together with the opportunity to obtain high resolution radio maps, have now given us the ability to follow in detail the evolution in morphology of supernova remnants. To keep our summary of this evolution brief we shall limit our discussion to only two representative examples: the very young remnant of Tycho’s supernova and the much older remnant CTB1.
