To everyone who's ever asked "what's that poster to your left of your desk?", I bring you UsefulCharts' Timeline of World History, which came embedded in their eponymous book, received last Christmas.
"covering 3300 BCE - present... displays all the major empires, kingdoms, and civilizations throughout history in a side-by-side format so that the viewer can quickly see how different events in different places relate to one another... includes Pre-Columbian American, African, European, Middle Eastern and Asian history."
