If you’re the type of person who gets lost in Wikipedia pages when you’re browsing, Histography is for you.

The interactive timeline lets you sift through every single historical event that’s been documented on Wikipedia. That’s pretty much everything from the big bang right up until today.

Each dot on the timeline represents an event and it’s updated daily. You can also browse through it using the scrollbar at the bottom to go through different timeframes like the Stone Age or the Renaissance.

You can choose to watch specific events from a particular period that interests you too, so if wars of the past century are your thing, you can check those out in the ‘war and inventions’ category.

Histography is a final year project by Matan Stauber at the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem.
