2nd millennium BC - 1st millennium BC - 1st millennium

The 1st millennium BC in North American history provides a timeline of events occurring within the North American continent from 1000 BC through 1 BC in the Gregorian calendar. This time period (from 1000 BC–1 BC) is known as the Post-archaic period (Post-archaic stage) and specifically the Early Woodland Period in the Eastern Woodlands. Although this timeline segment may include some European or other world events that profoundly influenced later American life, it focuses on developments within Native American communities. The archaeological records supplements indigenous recorded and oral history.

Because of the inaccuracies inherent in radiocarbon dating and in interpreting other elements of the archaeological record, most dates in this timeline represent approximations that may vary a century or more from source to source. The assumptions implicit in archaeological dating methods also may yield a general bias in the dating in this timeline.
