Our Revolutionary Timeline of Human History

Amy Garrett-WilliamsAmy Garrett-Williams

Since the dawn of time human beings have always innovated and pushed boundaries. From the invention of the very first bank note in c650 to the landing of the Curiosity rover on Mars in 2012, mankind has always strived for something better.

In honour of some of the most fundamental discoveries and events in history, we have created the 'Revolutionary Timeline of Human History'.

We have limited ourselves to only 45 items. Was the Queen sending her first email in 1976 more important than the invention of beer in 6000 BC? It was hard to decide.

We felt that the most recent revelation was the creation of the foam heart in 2015. It still needs a bit of work before it’s ready for humans but it’s off to promising start and can potentially revolutionise the way we deal with organ transplants in the future.

While this is by no means the definitive list of all human revolutions, it is 45 events that we feel deserve to be showcased and remembered.

Please let us know if you agree with the events in our timeline or if there are any events we have overlooked and deserve to be on our timeline. We will add in additional revolutions to our timeline in the future… that is until we meet maximum entropy.
