Features and Uses
There are geological eras that spanned a number of important years, approximately one thousand each, of which important data are known that are the object of study in many sciences.
The term is also used to denote a historical time in which certain technology was used, certain type of music was listened to or any other characteristic different from other periods of time. They can also be classified according to the political moment of a continent or country that has influence for a large part of the world population: empires, dictatorships, religion, etc.
