This set of Timeline belongs to the Sudan, Egypt and Nubia gallery at the British Museum.
The Timeline has a real artefact placed in front of it, making it attractive to the visitor. There is a much lesser volume of events being handled here, which means less physical space on the Timeline. This immediately makes it easier to comprehend and visually appealing. Even here a map is placed before Timeline events start to contextually place the visitor, the Timeline itself is interspersed with images of events, sites and the landscape.
There are 2 images of the landscape, here desert, to communicate to the visitor the difficult surroundings under which these events have taken place. This helps establish a link between the hardships faced by the people and the importance of the artefacts and the civilisation.
This Timeline is about 6 feet by 3 feet.
