Etymology : “Chronicle of events year-by-year,” 1560s, from Latin annales libri “chronicles, yearlies,” literally “yearly books,” plural of noun use of annalis “pertaining to a year,” from annus “year”. In the early Roman republic, the Pontifex Maximus each year would record public events on tablets called Annales Maximi, hence Latin historical works were called annales.
