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.

Logon to https://myactivity.google.com and you can look for your previous searches since you start to logon to your Google account in any device.
