Timelines are fascinating; they help you to compare what was going on in one place at the same time as what was going on in another, you can plot how a particular technology developed through time, or you can see how it moved around the world as more countries adopted it. As a lover of ancient and medieval history I use my timelines as learning tools and I refer to them frequently. Bits of them often end up in class handouts and instruction.

Beginning in 2007 I started keeping timelines on 4 topics and I add to them as I come across items of particular interest while I’m reading:

Bookbinding, Miniatures, Paper and Writing
Metal and Smithing
Earth
Gemstones and Glass

In an effort to spread my love of bookbinding, miniatures, paper and writing (calligraphy) I’m going to be posting my timeline entries onto my blog. I hope that you will start your own timeline and incorporate my entries if they are relevant to your timeline subjects.
