History Through the Decades
Wikipedia has a cool feature where they summarize various decades in pictures. These are really fun to see, to get a sense of history - especially a sense of what events were happening at the same time.
2020s (so far)
1730s and earlier
It's a bummer that Wikipedia's summaries end here. I'd love for Wikipedians to create more. It seems like the main events of the 1730s were:
- The First Great Awakening takes place in Great Britain and North America.
- Crimean Tatar raids into Russia
- War of the Polish Succession
- Austro-Russo-Turkish War
- Qianlong Emperor of China starts to oversee a huge expansion in territory
- Octant navigational tool was developed by John Hadley in England, and Thomas Godfrey in America
- Flying shuttle invented by John Kay
- Europeans encountered rubber
