  • Graphical timelines provide a visual representation for the timespan of multiple events that have a particular duration, over the course of centuries or millennia.
  • Timelines by year are timelines for one particular year that show the developments for that year within the topical area of that timeline.
  • Lists of years or Tables of years are indexes that list all of the individual timelines by year that pertain to a specific topic.

Timespans next to the timeline articles listed here include the date of the earliest item included in the linked timeline article.
