Histography is the best interactive timeline of history for zooming in on individual events throughout our history. The timeline begins at the origin point of the universe and goes up to the year 2000. You can click on any individual dot, each of which represents an event, and choose to watch a video, read the wiki, or find related events. Scrolling with your mouse changes the scope of the timeline and so does a bar at the bottom of the page. Once you’ve clicked on a single entry, a window with information about the event opens up so you can read about it.
