Read the article from the Smithsonian Website link below, then check out the interactive tool which will enable you to track how your address has changed over the past 750 million years. (I’ll bet rents were cheaper back then.)

750 million years is only a portion of geological time. Here is a chart showing all of it:

This is fun!  340 million years ago I was underwater.  Should I get flood insurance?

How much per year on that sort of timeline?

Thanks for the time suck. . .  I have a weakness for maps and had to break the spell to get some work done.

260 Million years ago, I was high and dry, and only about a three or four hour auto trip from the eastern slopes of the majestic Caledonides. Subtropical latitudes, so the skiing wasn’t great, and there was no one around to repair my auto when the fuel injection computer went bad on me.
