Historic timeline s are like number lines in math with one major difference – there is no zero!
Decade = 10 years
Century = 100 years
Millennium = 1000 years
Chronology - an account of events in the order in which they happened
Because there is no “year zero,” centuries always begin with a year that ends with #1 and ends with “00.”
Example: 1901=2000 = 20th century
To name the century, take off the “00” off the last year of the century.
1-100 C.E. 1st Century C.E.
1301 – 1400 A.D. 14th Century A.D.
700-601 B.C. 7th Century B.C.
