The Scottish History Time-Line provides an alternative route to access
for Scotland. The time-line incorporates thousands of
Scottish historical events including the births and deaths of famous Scots,
archaeological sites and historic buildings in Scotland, together with
the dates of battles and other cultural events. Each event is colour coded, with a key given below.
The time-line is fully linked into the vast store of information which forms
the Gazetteer for Scotland database.

Note that, within a single year, events are not necessarily
presented in chronological order. The time-lines only give direct access to
a limited number of Gazetteer for Scotland entries, because only
some can ever have dates associated with them.
