I'm happy to introduce a new feature here at CC, Medieval History Timelines
. Actually, it's not new, I've been working on this for ages, and I've got tons of things bookmarked to add, but at some point I just had to make an official announcement. These timelines link to MOCs that recreate events, people, places, and art/literature from the castle era. A few notes:
-I've made the time range from 476 (fall of Rome) to 1666 (Great Fire of London), as that has been the range we've used in past contests.
-I indicated January 1 for those events without a specific known date. Timetoast (the site I used to create the timelines) requires a month and day.
-I located people at the year of their birth and buildings at the year that construction began.
-Any errors are my own (or, I suppose, Wikipedia's) - please PM me with any corrections.
Please let me know of any historical MOCs I'm missing. As I said, I do have a ton of additional things bookmarked, so if I have yet to include your creation I apologize.
