Non-maths general question on history of space time

    Non-maths general question on history of space time :)

    Hello,

    I'm doing a Bsc project on space-time and was hoping to receive some advice on how others would structure the history of the topic. I know this is a broad question but what I'm struggling with is how to narrow down the relevant contributors, I don't want to miss out key people involved in its evolution but I also don't want to unnecessarily take up words.

    For instance I was thinking of explaining the history in this order:

    Galileo
    Newton/Leibniz
    Mach
    Lorentz
    Einstein

    But then I feel like I should involve for example Michael Faraday & Maxwell's Energy/speed of light contribution or should I just sub-heading that under Einstein where relevant?

    I'm new to this forum so I hope this question is appropriate for this section.

    Appreciate any help I can get, thanks!!! :)
