With ChronoZoom, you can browse history, rather than digging it out piece by piece.
ChronoZoom is a timeline for all of history: From the Big Bang, to the time of the dinosaurs, to the present.
Motivation and Introduction
“Big History” is a new and emerging field that attempts to unify the past — all of the past — from the beginning of time, through the four major historic regimes of Cosmic, Earth, Life and Human history, up to the present. It offers a broad understanding of how the past has unfolded, and the opportunity to think about what unifying characteristics there may be in all kinds of history. It presents a motivation for bridging the intellectual chasm between humanities and sciences.
