About Totally Timelines Author

Totally Timelines is owned, produced and written by Heather Y Wheeler BA (Hons). 

After gaining my degree in European Humanities I went on to become a Secondary School History teacher. I created my first history website, History on the Net, in November 2000. Since then I have always owned at least one website. 

After the Covid 19 pandemic I took the decision to take time away from work to focus on writing material for Totally Timelines and my other websites and giving guided tours of 1066 sites in East Sussex.

Totally Timelines currently attracts around 60,000 visitors per month with 100,000 monthly page views. We attract visitors from around the world but predominantly from the UK and the US.


In 2013 I sold History on the Net to new buyers and was looking for a new challenge. The move to the digital age has meant that people are looking for information that can be easily accessed by a range of technologies. Presenting History in a timeline format enables visitors to quickly scroll to the date or dates they are interested in, find the information they require and then either move on or continue reading.

The timelines presented on Totally Timelines aim to appeal to a wide audience and include topics studied in school and college as well as popular culture items. The most popular timelines are featured on the home page, below the Today in History section at the top. Latest additions are listed in the sidebar on desktop/laptop computers and at the bottom of the page on mobile.

Totally Timelines is based in the south of England and is written in British English.


I write all the timelines myself and I aim to produce at least four new timelines a week as well as updating older material. 


All timelines are thoroughly researched using at least three different sources.

The site is supported by advertising. I am committed to ensuring that the site remains free to access for all users and try not use intrusive advertising. Nevertheless, costs have to be met and advertising is the best way to raise the money to pay for the upkeep of the site.
