References for dating the end of 'Ancient history'[edit]

Any article which uses as references for this something from 1870 and a non-academic web page to say what academics think is not off to a good start.--Doug Weller (talk) 07:29, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

"kya" as undefined acronym[edit]

What does 'kya' mean? Why is it used here, and in other ancient-history related articles, without anyone bothering to note what it means? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 144.160.5.25 (talk) 20:01, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

kiloyears ago. see Mya (unit), i don't know how appropriate it is. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.156.153.59 (talk) 12:15, 10 January 2009 (UTC)

Mississipian culture forms in 1100 BCE... NOT[edit]

In the "Brief ancient chronology," which is replicated on other pages about ancient history on Wikipedia, there's something in there about the Mississipian culture forming at 1100 BCE. Someone made a huge mistake there, because it existed around 800 CE to 1500 CE, not BCE. A simple visit to its article will convince the readers that it ended right around when European explorers started showing up in North America.

I would fix it myself, but I can't figure out how to edit that little module. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.66.139.65 (talk) 08:13, 30 December 2012 (UTC)
