Why do we try and divide history into
different periods? 

Answer: 

1. It is an attempt to capture the characteristics of a time, its central features as they appear to us. 

2. To demarcate the difference between periods which become important. 

3. To reflect our ideas about the past. They show how we see the significance of the change from one period to the next.
