This is a Euro-Centric classification, which I have chosen not to be racist or xenophobic, but because it’s a helpful general classification. Wikipedia has a great list of culture/region specific eras here.
Ancient Era (4000 B.C. - 476 A.D.) - The Prince of Egypt, Gladiator, Pompeii, Rome, Cleopatra, Spartacus, Tut
Medieval Era (476-1450) - The White Queen, Vikings, Mists of Avalon, Kingdom of Heaven, Robin Hood
The Renaissance Era (1450-1600) - The Tudors, The Borgias, Richard III, Shōgun, Dangerous Beauty
The Future - Firefly, Interstellar, The Hunger Games, The 100, Star Trek, Terra Nova
What are your favorite TV shows and movies from each different era? Feel free to comment or re-blog with additions! :)
misschienmaaltijd asked: why are your eras so euro-centric?
WQA said: this is a fairly common general way of listing historic periods. Although “Georgian, Regency, and Victorian” are all specific to the U.K., the costume, culture, and politics that define those periods weren’t just confined to Europe. Here’s a great list on wikipedia which covers the time periods in all their different classifications.
The following came in by fan-mail, but I’m Anon-ing it because I’m not sure if it was meant to be shared, but I super appreciate it.
Anonymous said: Not sure why misschienmaaltijd calls you guys racist just because your list doesn’t contain every culture-specific time period classification? The pictures contain people from a variety of races. And isn’t this blog run by Americans? I would kind of expect it to be American/European centric?
