This is a digital representation of the prominent and much-heralded timeline produced by The Hockey Museum (THM) for the 2015 EuroHockey Championships in London. It serves to illustrate the history of hockey from its ancient origins to the present day, taking in key events and decisions that have played a significant part in the development of the 'modern' game with particular focus on European nations.

Research and images provided by THM. Please note: whilst it is true of most, not all of the images are specifically representative of the events and decisions that they depict. Nevertheless, we have endeavoured to keep such images as close as possible to the time periods or events that they illustrate whilst simultaneously shining a light on some of the lesser known artefacts and archival materials from our collections.
