Make Your Own Timeline (14 billion + years to today)

Finding a timeline that covered big history was difficult, so I decided to create my own. The initial process was difficult, as I had trouble figuring out how to space out the years so that there were not too many pages, yet it left room to fill in information.

I decided to use the Usborne Book of World History as a general guide on how many years to cover on each page.

As a result, I have a timeline that covers the past 14 billion years. The file is in a Word document so that it can be edited.

Download a copy of the timeline.
