The Star Wars Expanded Universe Timeline divides Star Wars into 7 distinct eras. Meanwhile, there’s a timeline of galactic history on Wookieepedia that’s equally astounding, and divides time up into so many eras, I’ve lost count.
Here’s the scoop on the EU Timeline, via Wookieepedia:
The Star Wars Expanded Universe Timeline was created in 1992 by Joseph Bongiorno. It was originally a Word document that was periodically updated and sent to Bill Smith for West End Games and later Bob Cooper for Dark Horse Comics prior to its being presented online.
A continual work-in-progress, the chronology incorporates every published (and occasionally unpublished) story licensed by Lucasfilm in the Star Wars Universe, presented in the sequence in which the story occurs. It is broken down into sections by era as well as a “Complete History” section which incorporates every era.
