World History Timeline of ancient history This timeline of ancient history lists historical events of the documented ancient past from the beginning of recorded history until the Early Middle Ages. Bronze Age and Early Iron Age[edit] The Bronze Age was the period in human cultural development when the most advanced metalworking (at least in systematic and widespread use) included techniques for smelting copper and tin from naturally-occurring outcroppings of copper ores, and then combining those ores to cast bronze. The Iron Age was the stage in the development of any people in which tools and weapons whose main ingredient was iron were prominent. c. 3200 BC: Sumerian cuneiform writing system[1] and The Egyptian hieroglyphs.3200 BC: Newgrange built in Ireland.3200 BC: Cycladic culture in Greece3200 BC: Norte Chico civilization begins in Peru3200 BC: Rise of Proto-Elamite Civilization in Iran3150 BC:First Dynasty of Egypt3100 BC: Skara Brae in Scotlandc. 3000 BC: Egyptian calendarc. 3000 BC: Stonehenge construction begins.

World history World history, global history or transnational history (not to be confused with diplomatic or international history) is a field of historical study that emerged as a distinct academic field in the 1980s. It examines history from a global perspective. It is not to be confused with comparative history, which, like world history, deals with the history of multiple cultures and nations, but does not do so on a global scale. Establishment of the field[edit] The advent of world history as a distinct academic field of study can be traced to 1980s,[1] and was heralded by the creation of the World History Association and graduate programs at a handful of universities. Over the next decades scholarly publications, professional and academic organizations, and graduate programs in world history proliferated. Organizations[edit] History[edit] Pre-modern[edit] The study of world history, as distinct from national history, has existed in many world cultures. Early modern[edit] Contemporary[edit]

30 Life-Enhancing Things You Can Do in 30 Minutes or Less Many of us attempt to measure our happiness based on the duration of certain favorable experiences in our lives. The longer a favorable experience lasts, the happier we think we’ll be. But the truth is, life is simply a string of small, independent moments that are always changing. Thus, a few minutes well spent here and there can make a big difference in what we get out of life in the long-term. Here are 30 things you can do in 30 minutes or less that will have a positive emotional effect on you and those closest to you. And yes, I realize some of these suggestions may lead to activities and projects that will likely take longer than 30 minutes to complete; but they still take far less than 30 minutes to start. What simple life-enhancing activities do you participate in on a regular basis? Photo by: Rachel Sian Related 30 Ways to Save 30 Minutes a Day We're all way too busy.

The World History Association (WHA) One of the WHA’s largest commitments is to extend knowledge of world history to younger students. We at the WHA believe that students should not have to wait until college to be exposed to a global education. Understanding cross-cultural interaction and development throughout history should begin earlier. In an ever increasingly connected world, the WHA believes that secondary school teachers are an important asset in this regard. To assist professionals teaching world history, we have included essential links to information about standards and materials, lesson plans, and organizations and other informative, helpful websites. College Board This is an especially helpful website for those teaching AP world history. World History Connected This is an electronic journal that offers helpful information about teaching world history. H-World H-World is a particularly useful website for those looking for practical, logistical information for teaching world history.

National History Standards Праистория — Уикипедия Праистория (етимологията на думата идва от латинското præ – преди и гръцкото ιστορία - история), първобитно общество (доисторическо общество), предистория е термин, използван да опише периода преди появата на писмеността, влязъл в употреба през XIX век.[1][2]. Писмеността се появява в различно време при отделните народи, затова и терминът доисторически или не се използва в описанието на много култури или границите им не съвпадат с тези на човечеството като цяло. В частност се употребява терминът протоистория за определяне на крайния стадий на доисторическата епоха за дадена култура, когато самата култура още не е създала своя писменост, но вече е упомената в писмените паметници на други народи. Всички термини свързани с периодизацията на праисторията, например неандерталец или желязна епоха са ретроспективни и в значителна степен условни, а тяхното точно определяне е предмет на обсъждане.

A bunch of you have sent me this list. It comes from Drew Breunig, a New Yorker who apparently works in the computer business, in advertising. It's a short history of "Frontiers" — territories that he says have challenged humans over the centuries, arranged in roughly chronological order. Drew calls it "Frontiers Through The Ages."
