These are a couple of info graphics that i found quite nice. Almost all of them have a timeline aspect to them. This i thought was very relevant to what we are trying to convey. Also the layout of the text in some of these is set next to where the event happens on the timeline the events that are similar are closer to each other so there is a nice flow in the information received which i thought was quite successful.
