This is a list of decades from the beginning of the
**18th century BC** to
the end of the 2
**1st century**

1st century AD, including links to corresponding
articles with more information about them.
During the 20th century, it became common to consider individual
decades as historical entities in themselves. Particular trends,
styles, and attitudes would be associated with and regarded as
defining particular decades (which became known as "The Twenties",
"The Sixties", and so on).
