Lovers of timelines will thoroughly enjoy this simple-to-navigate and ultra-informative website.

Using the two sidebar navigation tools, hone in on the points of history you wish to survey. Discover the people and events covering a time span of 3,000 years. This website allows visitors to explore not only the events in history but also the people and places of history. In addition to timelines for general history, events, and people, specific topics covered include: 

  • Science
  • Culture
  • Artists
  • Music
  • Writers
  • Religion
  • Politics

Once you have selected a particular timeline to view using the left-hand sidebar, narrow down your timeframe using the right-hand sidebar. The entries within the timelines are clickable, providing additional topical information on the right-hand sidebar.

In addition to the timelines, there is a selection of maps to geographically envision the seven periods of world history: 

  • Early Civilizations
  • Greek Colonization
  • Rome & Han China
  • Barbarian Invasions
  • Expansion of Islam
  • Mongol Empires
  • A.D. 1500-1800

An online, comprehensive, 250 chapter history text written by Frank Smitha that complements HyperHistory is also available for free through the link “Book Text”. (Please note that the “Book Text” link takes you to an external ad-supported website.)

Timelines are a valuable resource for putting history into perspective and you will find yourself bookmarking this site to come back to time after time.
