Hominid Timeline:
From walking upright to the present

If you haven't already seen my Evolution Timeline, you can zoom out to 1 inch = 2 million years (a factor of about 1,000x), in which this timeline covers just the last 1-1/2 inches.

While evolution occurs in this timeline, the focus is shifted more toward behavioral development.

To really gain some perspective, pay attention to the bottom scroll bar.

For more information, move your cursor over the bars.

This is not supposed to be a definitive history of humans. My intention is to help people realize how long it took humans to develop to where we are today, and how many of those developments occured relatively recently.
