(and following up on my own post...)

What I would probably do if this is something you need often is make a
custom agenda view which sets org-agenda-log-mode-items to closed, and
then view the agenda for a week starting from some specific date with
the log items on.  This should be much faster than the timeline view (L)
since it limits the date range you are looking at.
