Timeline Template for WordA timeline is a diagram that displays the chronological order of various events. A timeline can be used to see how those events take place at certain points in a time frame. A timeline is like a long ruler with units of length marked on it. The distance between one unit and the next one is always the same and is determined by the time scale used in the timeline. The time scale used may vary. One unit in the timeline may represent either a minute or a year. In the timeline of the history of the Ancient Rome, a unit may represent a year or a century.
