History through Green Glasses
Conquests and kings are all noteworthy elements of world history, but this Web site has distinctly different priorities in presenting a timeline of great botanical events. Ponder the invention of brewed tea (2737 B.C.) or the first evidence of peanut cultivation in Peru (1000 B.C.). Prepared by staff at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, Calif., the lengthy timeline remains a work in progress. No illustrations but lots of plant trivia.
