|timeline for SR/Earthdawn

My friend and I are working on a run which will include time travel.
We have worked out workable rules for the run, but I have some questions
about the history of Earth according to FASA.
What I know about Earthdawn is that it is considered the "fourth world" while
our present is considered the "fifth" and Shadowrun takes place in the
"sixth." Now, when does the fourth world end and the fifth begin? What
marks the beginning of the fifth? I believe that the sixth begins with the
Awakening, so I assume the fifth starts with some sort of event which causes
magic to leave. What is the year of the beginning of the fifth world?
This question arises because one of the organizations in the run who have
access to time travel has set up a base in the Oligocene period. I would
like to know if magic and/or people was around back then. If you came
across anything by FASA that would hint to the answers to my questions, or even
if you provide your opion on the matter it would be greatly appreciated.
