Today’s link is to Packrat’s Timeline — an eclectic but concise listing of events from 4,000,000 B.C.E. to the 17th century, with subsets covering the ancient world and the Crusades. This is the project of a genealogist who is trying to keep track of information on his own ancestors, but it works nicely to relate events to each other. If you scroll down the page, you’ll find a true packrat’s collection of links to graphics, information on Celts and Druids, hummers (the birds, not the cars), and other miscellany.
On a related note, Time and Date.com will generate a custom calendar for any year, plus offers things like a countdown and a way to find out on what day you’re 20,000 days old.
I do enjoy people with obsessions.
