History

Western civilization is not well known in prehistory or antiquity except in limited areas. It began to develop more in classical and medieval times. In modern times, Western Civilization began to expand and exert inflence over the entire earth. In the 20th century, its direct political influence began to decline, but cultural influence continued. Various trends make its future uncertain. History can be used to examine Anglic peoples, Latin peoples, Germanic peoples, Northeast European peoples, Balkan peoples, and Scandinavian peoples.
