This timeline of ancient history lists historical events of the documented ancient past from the beginning of recorded history until the Early Middle Ages. The Bronze Age was the period in human cultural development when the most advanced metalworking at least in systematic and widespread use included techniques for smelting copper and tin from naturally-occurring outcroppings of copper ores, and then combining those ores to cast bronze. These naturally-occurring ores typically included arsenic as a common impurity. The Iron Age was the stage in the development of any people in which tools and weapons whose main ingredient was iron were prominent. The adoption of this material coincided with other changes in some past societies often including differing agricultural practices, religious beliefs and artistic styles, although this was not always the case.

Few written records or artifacts have been found from the Predynastic Period, which encompassed at least 2, years of gradual development of the Egyptian civilization.
The categorization of the past into discrete, quantified named blocks of time is called periodization. Major categorization systems include cosmological time periods in the origin and mass evolution of the universe , geological time periods in the origin and evolution of the Earth , anthropological and historical time periods in the origin and evolution of human civilization. These can be divided broadly into prehistorical before history began to be recorded and historical periods when written records began to be kept.
