You can go to

chrome://history/ [ Click on : - > History ]

then at the bottom there a link called older. Click on the older and go back to till date you want to go.

Or there is also search option -- where you can search data from your history.

earliest history date is August 2.

so that would be 10 weeks.

Actually I never faced this kind of requirement before. I think it is 10 weeks only.
