Proposed changes[edit]

This change would help clarify the period structure: Classical from 800 BC to 600 AD; Medieval from 501 AD to 1500 AD; Renaissance from 1301 AD to 1700 AD; Modern from 1701 AD to present. Note that there are some overlaps by date, because, for example, the Renaissance began much earlier in Italy than in England. Cmadler (talk) 18:28, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
