About this site

No single narrative can take in all of CERN's history – many threads come together to tell the story of what CERN was, what it is now and where it's going. You may want to tell the story of a given particle accelerator, an area of research, or how CERN management has changed over the years, for example. 

This site is a tool for building custom timelines. Choose which events are relevant to the story you want to tell, then add them to a timeline and display them as an embedded iframe on your site. To see all the events currently in the database, click "Events". For a step-by-step guide on how to string the events together into a timeline, see "Build a timeline".
