I have compiled the timeline from a wide variety of sources. It
includes many, but not all, of the important events and personalities that have been
acknowledged by others to have had significant roles in shaping history. The names and
events that appear in colored fonts on this timeline are linked to web pages that I have
created: Click on those names and events to get information on the person or event.
