I'd like to include an image in a timeline in mathematica.

Is this possible using the TimelinePlot? There is this previous question which considers graphical timelines, but nothing that will create a timeline that has images and a title at each dates.

Any advice on where to start to look for a solution?

    $\begingroup$ Can you post some example data? It's hard to know if you mean eg images in the legend or tooltip. $\endgroup$
