A Brief History Of Particle Physics

The history of particle physics is long and complex, with contributions from many different characters in many different places. These pages present an overview of the main steps that led to our current understanding of nature at the most fundamental level. This information is by no means complete, but aims to at least give an idea of where we are today and how we got here.
