Timeline of Cards, Cartomancy, and Tarot

This timeline shows the spread and development of playing cards and tarot in western Europe over the last 1200 years or so. You can click and drag either bar, and click on individual items. Looks odd with Microsoft’s IE? Try IE’s Tools/Compatibility View.

Much of the data comes from Simon Wintle at http://www.wopc.co.uk/history/earlyrefs.html.
