About the website:

Events are grouped into major periods, with individual years listed in sub-directories.

For certain periods and years, there is also a list of international events colored in blue to provide some reference as to what was happening elsewhere in the world at that time. These events most likely had some impact on China. After all, China did not exist in isolation and was constantly influenced by other countries and world events.
