Timeline of technology: Ereláe

From Almeopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This timeline records scientific and technological discoveries only. It's restricted to Ereláe; I'll provide one for Arcél later.

It's also restricted to humans and flaids in the present age. We don't yet have good data on the iliu or elcari. As for earlier ages, the Count of Years strongly suggests that humans participated in the technological advances during the iliu-ktuvok wars; but if this was the case, they had regressed to neolithic level when our story begins.

Second discoveries are not listed, momentous as they may be. There may be a large lag between a discovery in one place and its adoption (or reinvention) elsewhere.

Round numbers are intended to suggest vagueness of date. Where possible, dates reflect promulgation or publication, rather than (say) jottings in a private notebook.
