There are a few ways you can go about catching up on significant moments in world and human history. You can attend lectures or perhaps read a few history books. Or, you can temporarily toss those old school learning methods aside and instead enjoy an impressively well put together interactive history timeline.

Sure, you may have seen interactive history timelines before, but we’ve yet to see one as exhaustive or engaging as the one put together by Their cleverly crafted and intuitive timeline spans 14 billion years of history, with the website boasting that every entry “is a historic event from Wikipedia.”

In other words, the timeline allows you to quickly peruse through every noteworthy event over the last 14 billion years. Naturally, the first event listed is The Big Bang which took place 13.3 billion years ago.

What’s more, and decidedly more convenient as well, is that the website lets you view unique timelines associated with specific topics. So, for example, if you only want to see a timeline associated with political events, religion, or even assassinations, you can tailor the interactive timeline just to your liking.

All that said, you can enjoy a history lesson served up Web 2.0 style via the source link below.
