Back on topic. I'm actually not a big fan of entries in timeliness that have the date as "??????" Seems kind of pointless to add these events if you don't have the time it occurred. A timeline without the time is, well, just a line I suppose :?

for my personal version of this, I will probably delete entries like:

???? B.G.
Following the Second Interspace Migrations, the Jews hide their identity from the non-Jews.
[Chapterhouse: Dune]


Since there is no time reference. But, as I stated before, give my thanks to Edric for doing the work on it!!


Thanks for the vote of approval, it very much welcome, and that goes for everyone, thanks for the input.

As for the entries with ????A.G.
They are there because I know roughly when an event happened but have no proof or sources to drawn on for evidence of an exact date. Also these events dated ???? often give context to entries with dates.

There is an area of the timeline I've been having difficulty with . . .

The period of time when Pardot became planetologist and the sequence of events that lead to the plan for transforming Arrakis, I'm finding hard to get dates. Any clues?

Your welcome.

IF got a question and I hope someone has the answer . . . How long is a generation measured? I think it's 20 years but I'm not sure, if it is I've got an entry to add . . .

Appr. 9800 A.G.
House Atreides is given Caladan, the third planet of the Delta Pavonis star system as a siridar-fief.

This is one we've gone around the bend a few times on before. In the Religion Appendix of Dune FH wrote

Then came the Butlerian Jihad—two generations of chaos. ... Those two generations of violence were a thalamic pause for all humankind.

and in the "Terminology":
JIHAD, BUTLERIAN: (see also Great Revolt)—the crusade against computers, thinking machines, and conscious robots begun in 201 B.G. and concluded in 108 B.G.

201 - 108 = 93 divided by 2 gives 46.5 years. The Atreides were on Caladan for 1209 years using this figure, or from 8982 A.G. (simply subtracting from 10191...or would you go back from Paul or Leto I's birthdate?).

Appr. 9800 A.G.
House Atreides is given Caladan, the third planet of the Delta Pavonis star system as a siridar-fief.
[Dune]

But then again, it isn't an exact science.
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

Hey, What about my contribution? :wink:

Edric, will you put the new informations that I showed? Would be nice! :wink:

I had began a timeline too, but I hadn't time to finish it. If you want, I'll try to translate the things I done to english and I'll give to you.
The singular multiplicity of this universe draws my deepest attention. It is a thing of ultimate beauty.

I've made a lot of changes and made some alterations since the timeline was originally posted, I've emailed a copy to Sandchigger because I don't currently have time to post it here on the board.
