This is not the book I had which was more like "A People's History of the World". It gave a year by year accounting of events both big and small(i.e. the price of bread in Rome). No pictures. Big book that I gave away(I think) a few years ago when I cleaned off my bookshelves. Date read is a guess.

A really long book. Very well researched, but you should know what you are taking on before you read it.
