Although many of the encyclopedias listed in the previous section contain chronological tables, this is probably the most comprehensive chronology for the time period covered. Left-hand pages list political events, right-hand pages cover religious, intellectual and artistic developments. Events are dated to the precise day, month, season or year if possible, otherwise, a general indication is given. For chronology prior to 800 see vol. 1 of H.E.L. Mellersh's 4 vol. Chronology of world history (D11 .M39 1999) covering the years 10,000 BC - AD 799.
