Hi Ruth,

I did a bit of digging around for timelines some months ago, as part of the preparatory thinking for our Cultural Materials Initiative http://www.rlg.org/culturalres/; there weren't as many graphical examples as I'd hoped, but here's the contents of my bookmarks file anyway:

Way back in 1997 Peter Blank, etal, put up a list of timelines in print and on the Web:

[now at link above]

I have been surfing the Web looking for others to no avail. The Metropolitan Museum of Art seems to have timeliness from antiquity through Byzantine. Has anyone found any others?

I kept the typo in the message above. The extra "s" in timelines is wonderful. (sc)

19 December 2002 addendum: Daniel Starr called our attention to the Met's timelines page at http://www.metmuseum.org/toah/ -- nicely graphic but takes several steps to get to timelines themselves.
