Abstract

The author begins with a chronology, touching briefly on all work that he am aware of in this area. He discusses in some detail what he considers to be the ten most important papers and events in terms of their impact on the discipline of temporal databases. His goal is to characterize the evolution of this field, as an introduction to the approximately 350 papers specifically relating time to databases that have appeared thus far. He then identifies and discusses areas where more work is needed.
