Welcome to Our Millenuim Site. We are hard at work to bring you as much information as possible about what has happened in the past 1000 years.

We also felt that so much has happened in the past 100 years that we should bring you the last century broken up into the different decades.

Please keep in mind that this site is graphic intense and could take a bit of time to load. Thanks.


Webster's dictionary defines a "millennium" as any 1000 year block...not just from 1001 - 2001

And the reason is simple for there not being a year 0........think Roman numerals....

I=1
V=5
X=10
L=50
C=100
D=500
M=1000


Notice --- there is no symbol for zero --- in Roman numerals there is no value for zero, nothing was referred to as zero, it was null and void --- and since Pope Gregory XIII, the creator of the calendar still used in most countries of today's world, was a Roman pope --- and since he would have used Roman numerals for his calendar markings, and there was no zero in his calendar, the year zero didn't exist.

And if you are curious, both the US Naval Observatory and the Royal Observatory Greenich (http://greenwich2001.com/) in Great Britain classify the third millennium as starting on Jan 1, 2001.
