This site will feature the history of the natural world, and accounts of historic geological, meteorological, and astronomical events. The selection of events is a personal one, although I have tried to pick ones for which information is otherwise hard to come by. The Landmarks Chronology extends to the middle of the 20th Century. I do have records of numerous events that were not considered 'remarkable' enough to be Landmarks. If you would like to know more about phenomena in a particular period of history, please contact me at christopherchatfield@gmail.com
