The British History Visual Timeline

The BBC has put up a great interactive, visual British History Timeline.  Each dot represents a signnificant event.  Clicking a color “era” zooms the timeline to just that time period.

Mousing over the individual dots shows the specific event details and timing.



You can also select a particular region of the UK, or search for a specific year or keyword.

Is there anything like this for US or world history? This is great, but now I want more!

Unfortunately, this graph does not seems to work anymore. But we have recently launched a website, eStory, where people can create and discover timelines on any topics, in order to see the key events of stories.
Maybe this can complete those infographics : https://estory.io

Have a good day!
