Cite a Timeline

You may need to cite a timeline you found on

Here's how you would do it in MLA format using this History of Rome timeline as an example:

“History of Rome.” Preceden Timeline Maker. Web. 4 May 2017. <>.


  • Timelines created on Preceden are anonymous, so there is no way to include the author's name in the citation.
  • Similarly, the timelines do not display when they were created, so the Date Month Year Published section is omitted.
  • Replace 4 May 2017 with the date you viewed the timeline
