Creating easy timelines on the web

Another website I discovered on the web last week but haven’t gotten round to properly playing around with is TimeRime, a site that lets you create interactive timelines online easily. As a field focusing on “When” as much as the “Where” and “What”, you can see how this might be a good illustrative tool for presentations, but also in project planning as well. It’s also collaborative, so you can let other people comment or add other points in the timeline.


I started to play around with it a little last week with an (way incomplete) archaeological timeline of Southeast Asia just to see its capabilities. Does anyone have any suggestions for what kind of timelines they want to see on SEAArch?
