Prehistory comprises all events which took place before the creation of written records. The timeline of prehistory lists events from the evolution of the universe and the Earth to the origin of life and human evolution, up to the invention of writing in approximately 3000 BC. Note that many of these dates are speculative or very rough estimates (approximations). For greater geologic detail, see the articles on the various geological periods.
