Product Description

This 24 x 36" wall poster covers 3000 BCE to the present. It was fully revised and updated in 2012 and as such represents 21st century scholars' current knowledge of the past (for example, potential linkages between Indo-European groups are shown as well as several newly discovered cultures such as the Oxus Civilization). Over 100 major empires, kingdoms, and civilizations are displayed in a colorful synchronoptic (side-by-side) format so that one can quickly see how different events in different places relate to each other and get a broad sense of the general "flow" of history. Over 500 facts are shown on the timeline, including famous people, important achievements, major wars, specific eras of human development, and natural disasters. The insets even include events from the Big Bang through human prehistory as well as potential future events from the present to the year 2100 and beyond. On the main chart, the names of each century (e.g. - 3rd century CE) are included alongside the dates (e.g. - 200-300 CE) in order to avoid any confusion and, unlike many other such timelines, the units of time remain equidistant in order to provide a proper comparison between ancient empires and modern ones. A conscious effort has also been made to make the chart less Eurocentric than other popular (but now terribly outdated) timelines and thus what was happening in India, China, Africa, and the Americas is shown alongside what was happening in the Middle East and Europe.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time on a Chart 26 Sep 2011
By Harmony - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Wall Chart
I'm a history lover and I suppose I'd always unconsciously considered that events happened linearly--not simultaneously. When I finally realized that the world and its civilizations developed at the same time but separately, I knew I needed some resource to help me picture these developments. This chart has been a very effective learning tool for me to carefully place what I learn into the accurate time period along with its companion world developments. Thanks so much-- from one chartmaker to another!!

5.0 out of 5 stars really is useful! 17 Dec 2011
By msalzer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Wall Chart
As a World History teacher, I am always on the prowl for materials that will both engage my high school students and deepen their understanding of the world and its history. This chart works on both levels. It has color-coded designations of the major empires, at a glance showing contemporaneity for various time periods, and has accessible, brief, and relevant highlights through time. Students of varying levels should appreciate this chart, prodding some to learn more about something found within it and others to contextualize for the big picture. In a word, it's aptly named "useful."

5.0 out of 5 stars Very well done Timeline-of-History Wall Chart 20 Jun 2013
By Terry J. Deveau - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Wall Chart
I keep this 60x90 cm wall chart right next to me at the computer where I write and refer to it frequently. It has an amazing amount of detail, yet portrayed in a visually appealing and straight-forward style. The vertical axis on the portrait-orientation chart is the time line, divided into centuries and historical ages (an inset gives a smaller-scale view of geological history back to the Big Bang). The horizontal axis is divided into geographical regions. Lots of photos share the space with helpful text notations. Lines and arrows allow you to follow migrations and cultural movements, such as Germanic Tribes moving in on Rome in waves and throwing the Western Roman Empire into the Dark Ages. There are even a couple of inset boxes giving interesting speculation about future events. It's a great tool for getting a visual overview of the most significant periods of history, how they relate in terms of time scale and location, as well as how they transitioned. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great visual tool! 27 Nov 2012
By Tony L - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Wall Chart
The Timeline of World History chart is an amazing tool, especially if you're a visual learner like myself.
There is only so much text that my brain will process before it just shuts down. This chart is well executed. It is presented in an easy to follow format, with great use of colour and photographs to further add to its visual appeal. From 3000 BCE to present day, it's got you covered.
There is an incredible amount of information on this chart yet it doesn't overwhelm you with facts. It breaks down the information in a manageable, easy to understand way. I wish I had the use of this chart when I was still in school, I'm sure it would've made the learning process much easier for me - still, it's never too late to teach this dog some new tricks! Thank you UsefulCharts for making me smarter!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeline of World History 3 Oct 2011
By Creative Mom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Wall Chart
As a homeschool mom, I am always looking for ways to give my kids an overview of a subject, then give them the details. We have been studying various parts of history, so I was looking for a basic timeline of world history so my kids could better understand how what we were studying fit into the big picture. After much searching, I found this chart and was very pleased. It has just enough color to make it easy to read, a few pictures to make it interesting, and a nice breakdown of the various parts of history. I recommend it as an overview of world hisory.
