- A Timeline showing the chronology of events and people featured on the ancient / classical history site
Dateline: 03/23/99


Knowing what happened before and after has always seemed more important than knowing exactly when an event occurred. Perhaps that's why I gravitate towards ancient history -- so many dates are approximate. Following the advice of readers, I am organizing my Greco-Roman non-mythological features chronologically by century (except the first segment of my timeline will include the period from 1000-601 B.C. and the last, people and events from 201-476 A.D.). This reference tool will not substitute for the many and varied timelines collected in the Ancient/Classical History timelines library.
To avoid confusion, this timeline will be called a chronoscope. A colored bar with the relevant century highlighted will accompany all future non-mythological Greco-Roman features.
