About Din Timelines
Din Timelines is a world history timeline divided into over 200 pages where culture and climate do not matter. It spans from 5000 BC to the 1930s it contains links in the text to a variety of online information; bridging the gap between an information resource and a web directory.
The timelines are put together purely from internet sources. All the extant I have used are listed in our Links Directory. This is simply a timeline site more specific information can be found through those links.
I am not a historian and I have only a cursory knowledge of many of the events on these lines. As I do more research and surfing the timelines will become more clarified, but as it stands now when I am confronted with conflicting dates or information I take my best guess.
This is a very eclectic site. If you are looking for specific information about a particular event or era you may find something here, you may find much here, but sites dedicated to what your looking for will be a better bet. Din Timelines should not be your last stop in any serious research and should be considered a tetrary resource.
These pages use or will use cascading style sheets. If there are any problems beyond cosmetic contact me. I am currently using Mozilla 1.x as my default browser and I will check the pages in Opera 6.x and 7.x as time allows. I'm fed up with IE.
This should be fairly easy, everything is linked on the left column.
These are links in the text of the timelines. These are our Inline Links. Timelines uses several types of these links, each with it's own notation. Links going back to Resgestae or an outside website on the subject linked will be shown with a ?. Links to our onsite expansions will be marked with +. Online text and primary source reference materials hosted by Din Timelines, or an outside site will be marked with a *. Advertising or retail links will be marked with a "¢." Basic links to dates in the timelines will be marked with ][ or ||.
A topic word may have more than one link connected with it. The item linked will go to the symbol of what ever is closest to it. cats ?+ denotes a link through "cats" or "?" to a Registry internet directory about cats, clicking on "+" will take you to an artcle about cats.
Notations & Abbreviations
All inline dates will look like this this color unless they link directly to that date, they will then be like this. Other Abbreviations will be this. When an event or spans a period of time there will be a notation u.0000 or until 0000 and will represent how long an era or prolonged event, such as a war, lasts. Other notations include
Dates: Months will be shown as 3 letter abbreviations in lowercase as are the seasons. A general date followed by a two letter abbreviation will be LATE is "la", MIDDLE is "mi", EARLY is "ea", an unknown is "00" or no notation. jun ea would be early June. spr la would indicate late spring, aug 00 or aug means sometime in August.
The Timelines uses Common Era and Before Common Era instead of AD and BC. There are two reasons. The first is they are more politically correct and more importantly I can never remember what A.D. stands for. It is a mental block on my part...If a date has no notation after it it will be of the same era as the timeline it is found.
Before some entries there is a |Location|. The location may either be an ancient area name or a modern one, which ever seems easiest to comprehend.
Type some entries will have a |Type| such as |Politics| or |War| These types also loosely correspond to the subject headers on the Link Site to aid navigation beyond the Timelines site.PRIVACY
