Google Timelines

Discovered an interesting thing on Google (which is, as far as I can tell, omniscient) -- when you search for things with some historical relevance, there is often a link to a time line included.

I have no idea how it works, and of course the dates are pulled directly from websites and could be all over the place, but it's pretty neat. It's part of the Google Archive Search.

Here's one for Caerlaverock Castle, and another for the Lincoln Monument. Hey! They've got Erie, too.
