# How to find the history of a deleted answer?

I'd like to know how can one find the history of a deleted answer?

• @zyx Thanks. This is the link I was looking for, but how did you find it? Is there something near the answer which I've missed, or simply use the link you mentioned by introducing the appropriate number (that is, the number of the answer we are looking for to see its edit history)? – user26857 Jul 20 '16 at 16:24
• @user26857: It's just there, in the answer, just like here you have "edited 20 minutes ago" (at time of posting this comment). – Asaf Karagila Jul 20 '16 at 16:29
• @AsafKaragila Oh well, I don't know how I've miss it! Thanks again! – user26857 Jul 20 '16 at 16:31
• You can also find the post number by clicking "share" and copying the first number appearing in the link (the second is your user number). – Asaf Karagila Jul 20 '16 at 16:32

And if it wasn't edited, then using https://math.stackexchange.com/posts/<answer number here>/revisions will work just fine.
You can also access the timeline by replacing revisions by timeline. So in your case, https://math.stackexchange.com/posts/1680571/timeline will work.
